4 stars (From PA blog "Japanese Progressive Rock presented by DamoX")

Ethnic percussion sounds and an extremely dry violin solo can let us fall into trance with acceleration.

Consider it should be a rare case that such an ethnicity can be aggressive in front of a progressive rock (or music) outfit. So important is their ethnicity for RYODAN to be united with the audience I guess. Heavily percussive plays and keen violin sounds like a cry of a fierce animal absolutely can construct their original psychedelia up. And another point is they can put enthusiasm into the audience with strengthening the sounds by each instrument. Such a tendency we can see especially in the first track The Wild Boar Ire, in that passionate percussion breaks a quiet atmosphere in the audience completely away. The following song Africa, a masterpiece in this work, is exactly a ritual by RYODAN and friends (audience). 13 players can make a wonderland named Africa, with lots of instruments, performances, sweat, breath ... all are the builders of Africa, okay? Their minimalism is not boring at all but colourful for alternative rhythm and style I feel - in When My Legs No Longer Carry and Meridian Bay the "alternations" should be very attractive for us in spite of each simple sound. In the next All Forest Children Of Tayutafu comes rocomoon, a female vocalist. Mysterious and delicious voices - not heard in their albums - can show many pretty children dance pleasantly and elegantly we can imagine. The last three songs are HEAVEN'S DOOR for the audience. Pathetique Hydrangea can let its flower open gradually, with pretty but solemn appearance and hypnotically eerie fragrance. Upon Cambrian Explosion ~ Sadame. their psychedelia can be completed, all instruments shoot aggressively noisy and enthusiastic sounds and let the audience and us fall into their primeval space mercilessly.

Hey, mates, let's go on a trip with us! As if we should be called so by RYODAN - Party Of Travelers. Highly recommended.
