3 stars A compilation of all the musical essence of Magical Power Mako.

In 1974, his first interactive communication with the outer space 'Magical Power' was released. Since then he's always been a postman to another world (and even now everyone cannot understand his attitude toward there...and here too!). This Cosmo Grosso has full of his sounds and styles gathered from his 30 year works. The content is exactly spacey - a toy box with various sounds, noises, voices and minds and musical culture all over the world. Let me emphasise the point: he can make good use of many many stuffs as his transmitters (instruments). From his early days he can play over hundreds of instruments effectively for the atmosphere around him. In this album the main soundmaker is a synthesizer controlled by his computer and programming and this synthesizer as his right hand can incarnate his vision, passion, and telepathy from the space. Here are plethora of scenes - a danceable one with electronic rhythm section, a rock and rolling part with heavy riffs, an Oriental telegraph featuring shakuhachi (Japanese bamboo pipe) or wabue (Japanese flute), and a hypnotic lullaby with female voices and chorus. Forgive me I feel such a long communication about 60 minutes might be boring not only for us but even for an alien in the outer space. However, even so, this work has various faces of Mako and we can eat his mixed salad only with the album. In my humble opinion, the previous album 'Magic' was so disappointing that I've expected this work. And I can say it's a good stuff.
