2 stars Eclectic soft prog from Japan. Music is not melted in one mix, but combines of many different songs, and each song contains few different styles. Some positive side of this way of mixing is all the album is enough different.

Main music components there are symphonic, neo-classic ( more immitation, than real one), post rock, electronics and operatic vocals. So, everyone can find something he /she likes? Sound is good, but very safe, polished, even commercial.

Possibly, bigger problem there is that all music is mostly based on melodic, almost cheesy pop-rock. So, even when interesting pieces are included in song, this pop-sweet basis just destroys possible great result. Many acoustic instruments/ strings are filling the space quite pleasantly. But again, I really more like some very separate pieces (plenty of them), but not the song (and album's music) in whole.

The album is long, but isn't boring. To be honest, I am not sure about classification of this music: band connection with any form of metal is very limited. However , in some moments you can hear Nightwish echoes.

Interesting, but more as experimental work, than as final musical product. Somewhere around 2,5.
