4 stars The Japanese band - ASTÚRIAS - (commanded by the multi-instrumentalist Yoh Ohyama) in his first studio work Circle in the Forest", presents a sonority that varies of NewAge (influenced mainly by KITARO & MIKE OLDFIELD) and for the Jazz-Prog in the style of bands as, for instance KENSO. Actually, most of the time this mixture doesn't happen inside of the same track, this mix comes separately: TRACK 1 "Ryo Hyo", presents a New Age in the best style KITARO, already TRACK 2 "Clairvoyance" possesses a very close melodic line of the sonority of the band KENSO associate to MIKE OLDFIELD'S sound, TRACK 3 "Angel Tree" seems it was inspired for the Swiss guitarist's chords ALEX DE GRASSI (WILDHAMM HILL RECORDS), TRACK 4 repeats TRACK 2 and it presents as prominence a fantastic guitar solo. TRACK 5 reminds one of the 4 parts (I admit that in the moment I don't remember which of the 4 parts) of the disk "Incantations" of MIKE OLDFIELD ( for me reminded too even and I found an exaggerating copy, to the point of in the final climax to also present a female vocal choir, almost identical to the of the mentioned disk). Thisis is the only flaw of the disk ´although of considering it very good (including the last track0.. My rate i 4 stars!!!
