3 stars I saw this band in Verviers (spirit of 66 ) as a part of a duo with another band ( it was not Ars Nova) that I cannot recall but it must've been Japanese also. If I remember them and not the other one , it is either good or bad . Actually I think of them as pretty good musicians doing slightly different music from the Japan standart prog band - this makes me think of Kenso or Bi Kyo Ran to a lesser extant. Another way would be to classify them in Canterbury , but the music on here is not very fun. They all excell as musicians in technicallity and dexterity , but lack inspiration and inventiveness. This band in concert was lead by the bassist , and I don't remember that much vocals.

3 stars I dont hear much Canterbury here, a little bit of Kenso (in the instrumental passages) but not as intense. Very enjoyable music though. At times they rock pretty good and fall into a nice groove which keeps it interesting. The vocals in Japanese are pretty good and I like her voice, they also do not dominate the music which is nice.....the well thought out instrumental passages carry the majority of the disc. For me this is to a lesser extant the typical Neo Prog thing and leans ever so slightly in the fusion/symphonic realm!! Make sense?
