2 stars The real title of this album is actually "Fantasien 1998". Marge Litch is a Japanese band whose music is somewhere between symphonic and prog metal. I find it a bit hard to categorize them. Some of the songs are more in the symphonic style like the opener "Starting for Adventure", the closer "Fantasien" and the track "Dealing with the Witch". These are also the best tracks in the album in my opinion. The rest of the album falls more in the prog metal genre. This is mostly due to the guitarist Yoshiteru Yukoyama whose influences are clearly from the prog metal genre. This is also the #1 reason why I dislike this album. Worth noticing is that the singer is female. Despite the English song titles the lyrics are in Japanese.

If I'm not completely mistaken this album is a remake of their debut album "Fantasien" from 1991.

Conclusion: Not a bad effort but this album doesn't get repeated listens from me. You may want to check this if you fancy a mix of symphonic and prog metal.
