4 stars Actually, the title of this album in FANTASIEN 1998.

Having finally gained much-needed musical skill over the years, Marge Litch revisit the work that they began their digital recording career with. Only this time, they did it right.

I knew when I first heard FANTASIEN that there was a special work kicking and screaming to get out. I was right, this is a wonderful album, full of exciting rock guitar and lush, orchestrated keyboard textures. Junko Sera is in her finest voice ever, her singing brimming over with untold, operatic power, soaring over the music. She has the aid of a choir and Outer Limits singer Tomoki Ueno, adding some male operatics to act as a counterpart to her full-bodied soprano.

While the original FANTASIEN (which is a rare collector's item these days) was more of a luxury for completist collectors, FANTASIEN 1998 is a jewel of symphonic rock, with a profound metal feel. A very underrated album, much recommended.

Progbear | 4/5 |
