3 stars This Japanese band and their debut album takes us back to the days when Japan had a strong symph prog scene. Bands like Mugen & co.

This band with the strange name is a through and through neo-prog band though. The songs are pretty long and has some symphonic traits. They are very melodic though and the songs are not that technical and intricate details driven. The music is a mix of British neo-prog and Japanese symph prog too. In short; good keyboards and guitar solos with Japanese pop and folk music flavours. The female vocals is typical Japanese. I am now very confused because the songs has English titles. But the vocals sounds very Japanese to me and I cannot detect any English words. Anyway, the vocals are a bit of an aquired taste and demands an open mind. I think they are great, though.

My gripe is the lack of any really great tracks here. The fourteen minutes long Message is the best song here. But that and the other songs tends to be a bit too anonymous. But this is still a good album and a very welcome addition to the scene. I sincerely hope that this band will follow up this album with more albums and they have been put on my watch list. Fans of neo prog should both get this album and put the band on their watch list too.
