5 stars As other reviewers have pointed out, the Kenso sound often resembles the best efforts of British "progressive jazz-rock fusion" bands such as Bruford, Brand X and National Health. Some of their most majestic guitar solos also bring Steve Hackett to mind. However, it needs to be pointed out that these guys are much more than epigones. There is such joy in their playing, and their melodies (which occasionally have an East Asian flavour) sound so memorable that they have become one of my favourite progressive bands. Do you sometimes despair that no-one plays prog these days with the same palet of colours, and the same inventivity, as on CLOSE TO THE EDGE or SELLING ENGLAND BY THE POUND? Do you enjoy (maybe) the music of the Flower Kings or Spock's Beard but does the banality of their lyrics tend to annoy you? Kenso's albums are all instrumental. These guys play with great virtuosity and tremendously youthful enthusiasm. All I need to add is that FABULIS MIRABILIBUS is their most original and enjoyable album to date! (However, if you can get hold of IN THE WEST or YUME NO OKA, I'm convinced you'll be hooked as well.)
