2 stars "Far out" is an early incarnation of the famous japanese prog band "Far east family band". The music has nothing to do with german prog, but rather belong to a gentle symphonic vein with very light spacey/experimental influences. It doesn't progress much, especially on the two long pieces constituting the original album. The same theme is developed within both movements, making the music repetitive. The omnipresent singing is too gentle, quite ridiculous even if bearable. Only the good guitar save the album from disaster and its gilmourian tone may evoke DSOTM (same year). Drum is unfortunatly flat and binary. Some japanese world/ethnic touches, but too light and too rare. Poor sound quality probably due to an amateurish production. A minor record.
