3 stars Cinema is founded on the ashes of Fromage, a fine Japanese progrock band that acted in the shadow of Outer Limits, Gerard and Ars Nova. This album has strong classical overtones featuring beautiful violinplay, sparkling piano, orchestral keyboards and opera- like vocals. The music evokes Pageant (lush symphonic atmosphere and sensitive electric guitar) and Outer Limits (classical instruments). The main part of this album contains the long track "Color of soul" (almost 20 minutes) featuring all the above mentioned elements and a wonderful Japanese undertone with a koto-like sound. If you like classical music and symphonic rock THIS IS ONE TO DISCOVER!

3 stars Cinema is one of the unnoticed japanese prog bands from the '90's and early this dacade, with 3 albums in their pochets.The band was formed by the ashes of another famous band from Japan Fromage, 3 members from that band made the final Cinema line-up in 1992. Into the state of flux is the second album of Cinema from 2000. The music of this album is very symhonic, but not in the way, for ex: Teru's Symphonia plays, is more towards classical side of symphonic prog, sometimes sounds like a truly full symhonic orchestra. Now the compositions are very smooth, sometimes very mellow, elegant and with a lot of emotions. Hiromi Fjimoto - the female voice is very smooth and very elegant in approaching the prog music, ex is:Memories of Amber. This symhonic prog is very well combined with some guitar interplays made by Tohru Ohta. The violin did a great contribution on this album made to sound very good and elegant ex is :A Dayfly and a Sunflower (this is one of the most beautiful, smooth and elegant piece I ever heared from a band from Japan) simply amazing piece, the album worth to have only for this single piece alone. The cherry on the cake here is their magnum opus - Color of Soul - a piece of nearly 20 minute of real treat for every prog listner, excellent. As a whole this album worth some spins, this is not that symphonic prog you listen every day, sometimes is hard to get in this kinda approach of prog, but when you do , leave you knock out. I will give 3 stars for this album, a good one in every way and enjoyble, but not quite a masterpice of prog music, I know better albums from Japan. The album is available on Musea records, so enjoy the symphonic side of Japan.

3 stars 3-4 stars, I hope I'll decide till the end of album which probably wouldn't be to hard because I have a lot of time. Oh, how I've end up stuck in listening "A Trick of the Waves" and "A Dayfly and Sunflower" over and over again ? And it's not because of voice.

I found voice somehow irritating, I'm not keen on opera thing, but it's listenable. "Dayfly" has perfect piano (or synth) tones right before drums and guitars came out. And in "Trick" it's few seconds part at 1:18 which is repeated variously thru the track. First two track I found just ... annoying. I didn't ever believed that I could say this so easily. It's not my style. "Flux" is too much electronic, or at least it sound synthetised (synth piano) and hollow inside, not real, without melody and too much agressive. And "Amber" without any catchpoint, nothing to hook on, or even enjoy. Then nice instrumental "Breeze", sharp contrast to first track. The rest of them is good. "Evening" with really calm mood inside. Three stars, but it's good one.

4 stars Very much leaning toward the classical side of progressive symphonic music, 'Into the state of flux' is an album of fine elegant compositions and particularly cultured playing. Violinist Tokiko Nakaishi is particulaly impressive. It's probably fair to say this is more music for, and from, the he ... (read more)
