3 stars I wonder if Japanese mates can accept and understand this album with such religious and spiritual atmosphere.
...Nah, I guess sadly it's so difficult for them to do so.

In spite of this erotic sleeve (shameful for me to recommend to another person!), in the first quarter of Cometary Orbital Drive Suite very solemn and mysterious are sounds of a temple bell and a rin(Buddhist bell), and voices with a moan of pleasure and pain. Pity for us with hoping Makoto's maximal speed of guitar sounds that his loud guitar should be under these solemn noises. This part might be an entrance of AMT's inferno. I can't listen to it without feeling myself absorbed into that world over there. Well I may make sense of the title of this part Light My Fire Ball... I feel it let me fire my inner mind and exactly be a fire ball. I consider this quarter should be independent from each other. You bet, from the second quarter to the last one, AMT can play a continual riff with changing its form, speed and tempo, loudness or hardness. I always feel these minor alterations are as if a fire ball (myself) should fly around along the cometary orbit, changing my temperature or energy. Over the 7777777 or the Milky Way, my fire ball has no fear, horror or terror. With aggressive and massive attacks, my flame can get larger and sharper. ...And at last I must die as my fire ball be blown out by the cosmic wind on The Milky Way Star...

I'm afraid over 60 minute suite be boring for you but sure this AMT's work be interesting for every spacey people. :-)
