2 stars Guitarplayer Terutsugu Hirayama was a member of famous Japanese 'heavy progressive rock' band Novela, along with keyboard virtuoso Toshio Egawa who left Novela and founded Gerard. Terutsugu also left Novela and formed his own band. This is his fifth solo effort, not his best. Most of the seven compositions deliver great, often sensational work on guitar and keyboards and the musicians are capable. But their is no spark, this CD lacks musical ideas although it's not a bad album. If you want to discover Teru's Symphonia their music, you can better start with his earlier work. Rating 2,5 stars but I have to click on 2 or 3 so this time I choose 2....

3 stars Vocals were always a very weak points in the previous releases of this Japanese band. Don't be confused : even if all their titles are in English, all are sung in Japanese. But in this respect, I have to say that Megumi Tokuhisa in doing a better job here. She does not sound so much to a fifteen years-old little girl any longer. Of course, she is ageing since the first "Teru's" album (recorded eight years prior to this one).

Instrumental passages or songs ("Stand By The Edge Of Memories") are still the best moments but during "Mother To Mother", her voice is more than acceptable (she does remind me of Lene Lovitch). It features a very nice melody and is to be ranked in the smooth part of their repertoire (just as "Pandora's Progeny" which is more complex and also holds some rockier bits and bytes).

"Animal Life" is one of my favourite song from this recording. Lush keyboards and solid beat. A good introduction to the excellent "Quiet Life". One of their best song ever released IMHHO. The band did not produce anything really great since "Symphonia 1" featured on their debut album. In a way, it also reminds some sort of symphonical work. Very catchy vocals (when it is pleasant, it also needs to be mentioned), like during "Animal Life" the melody is enjoyable and the guitar work is very well performed as well. THE highlight.

This album is finally truely symphonic (it's about time!). Most of the tracks offering very melodic work. The closing number is another good example. "Divine Drops" is definitely an interesting number as well.

It is on par with their debut which I had rated with three stars. Same for this one and a good entry to their repertoire.

3 stars Teru's Symphonia was and is one of my fav symphonic prog bands from Japan with their highlight , at least for me, Fable on the seven pillow from 1991. Clockworked earth is their fifth album from 1993 issued by Musea and is another good symphonic album in a good japanese tradition. Maybe not as great as previous one Fable or next Do androids but this is a fairly good album all the way. Some very nice and well composed pieces are for me Pandora's Progeny, Animal life and Quite life , each one with rich symphonic arrangements, lush and intristing keybords and good sound. Even the titles of the pieces are in english , Megumi Tokuhisa sungs in japananese, not a bad thing at all, it gives a certain unusual and in same time intrsting atmosphere. The musicians are capable to deliver good passages with plenty of great moments, I like what I've heared, is symphonic prog not really of the highest calibre but intresting and pleasent most of the time. 3towards 3.5 for sure, another worthy album of this discret band that I think is little unnoticed when talking about japanes symphonic prog school.
