2 stars The eponymous debut album by Japanese band Shingetsu is a wonderful blend of mid- Genesis (Hackett-Banks sound) inspired symphonic rock and an ethnic flavor. After the re-release of that debut CD the Japanese record company Belle Antique also released this live CD with recordings from 1979. It contains five tracks from Shingetsu and three tracks from the never released second studio album. Again we can enjoy mid- Genesis inspired symphonic rock and ethnic touches although the three new songs sound less captivating, only the great Hackett-like guitarwork is really worth listening. And unfortunately the recording quality is at the level of an average bootleg. So I am afraid that this live CD only will appeal to collectors.
