2 stars Not bad, just not that much Prog. But what's the biggest difficulty here for me, and it's not easy for me to admit it, are the vocals. I don't think it's because of the language, I'm quite fond of Japanese language, but singing here is sometimes unbearable - Kireta Ito is fine, but first part of Nigerarenai Yoru ni Tsukamatte is just awful and boring, until it breaks and more interesting tunes begins to emerge. Then awful beginning returns and the song finishes on Rock end. At least something, at least Rock, when not Prog in this song.

This is typical borderline case, very melodic, very "late 80s" in sound album, something of a Japan Prog awakening (or rather re-awakening). Of course, I was one of those who voted for their inclusion - there is more in this music and even Starless cannot win against titans of Prog, not even against average Proggers, it deserves its neat little space in the back of our catalogue. There are pieces like Again that brings the album Prog down, pure rock melody up.

3(-), it's up to you guys.
