Review by Kazuhiro
PROG REVIEWER
4 stars Dawn and history of Raga Rock. And, the necessity and it derives concerning the establishment of the music. As for the probability of the genre seen in the middle of the 60's, the base of the activity in about the United States and Britain might be known. These genre and definition that derives of course at the same time worldwide are the parts of uniting the flow from the classics music of India and the music character. Or, it flows including the fashion seen in the 60's. And, if an age part is considered, it is a part in psychedelic and the garage. And, it is likely to be able to apply it to the expression united with the part including the flow of Beat Rock.

Especially, it is guessed that having rolled markets in the part of the fashion and Raga Rock most reacting on sensitive appeared remarkably in Europe and America. Establishment of expression that catches age by individual musician method and music character till then. Especially, the fixation of the genre in Raga Rock was remarkable establishment and the derivation at the dawn of the 60's. The name of the Beatles, Traffic, and The Byrds will often rise as a part of the dawn when talking about the music character of Raga Rock. This genre gradually established of course at the same time in the world is a flow exported from the market in Europe and America. And, the expression expands further by musical instruments and the knowledge that entered from each country.

If the member of this The Orient Exprss and the music character are regarded, the part where the music character in the latter half of the indeed 60's was remarkably expressed in the performance might be emphasized. And, the expressed music character will be able to be caught at the same time as a band that should exactly call one chemical reaction as a history and a situation of Raga Rock.

This Trio is multinational as the formation of the member. It is understood that this Trio to which it applied to the definition of Raga Rock that had been gradually established as a point that should make a special mention at this time and the music character that fitted in was formed worked with inevitability and flexibility indeed. The member of this Trio is Iran and Belgium. And, it is said that it reached New York at last from France respectively. And, the part where the classics musical instruments have been introduced as a point that should make a special mention further in the form of the performance will be able to be enumerated.

Musical instruments used for this album that they had them announce only. Especially, it might be musical instruments that demonstrate the feature in this album that are called Electric Oud. Musical instruments like to harp spread to the Middle East. And, electron Sitar is taken an active part of course, too. Or, the introduction of Dumbek and Melodica like to Tabla tells it to the listener with a very peculiar impression for their music characters. And, the history that this album is put on the market from familiar Meinstream to the fan of psychedelic in the west coast can be understood enough as an inevitable part and a history to their music characters.

Part of a few garages Rock and Beat Rock that can be thought as the overall music character. And, the ratio of psychedelic that catches the emphasized age. Uniting of music scale spread to the Middle East. Musical instruments and express of taking to not simple ethno but psychedelic and Raga Rock being united well and having succeeded in the expression might be this The Orient Express.

As for "Fruit Of The Desert", complete Groove of the percussion instrument twines round the music scale of the Middle East that Electric Oud does. The union of an intermittent dash feeling and the melody has originality very much. It is a tune that unifies the element of Raga to the parts of a few Beat Rock.

As for "Dance For Me", Groove twines round the melody of the complete Middle East that Electric Oud does. It advances as the route of a few psychedelic twining. It is likely to contribute as the melody of the song that emphasizes atmosphere has originality very much.

"Layla" is a tune from which the flavor of complete psychedelic is emphasized. Rhythm of Melodica that does melody of hunting and united percussion instrument a little. The performance combines. A good flow including solo and the sound effect of a percussion instrument on the way of the tune is constructed.

"Birds Of India" starts by an enchantment sound effect. The melody of Electric Oud that continues the atmosphere is expressed well. The impression of the tune has been decided by matching the melody of the percussion instrument and the arpeggio. It is a tune from which the element of Raga Rock is emphasized.

"Train To Bombay" shifts to the flow that the flavor of complete psychedelic is emphasized from Intro with the percussion instrument. Performance of Electric Oud that produces melody of a few Acid Folk and Raga Rock. And, the chorus who had the song and the harmony suitable for the tune. A good dash feeling advances in union.

As for "Caravan Of Silk", the melody and Drone of the solemnity are emphasized. The melody of Melodica and Electric Oud that gives the melody of the complete Middle East might be good. A part the performance heavily expressed in the rhythm of constant Drone enchantment with the blissout is continued.

"Azaar" constructs the atmosphere of Drone that the line of a rhythm of six rhythms and constant Bass is good. The song by the round twines after Melodica pulls it. In addition, the melody advances aggressively attended with the dash feeling. The melody of Melodica and Groove with the stringed instrument are complete.

The atmosphere of psychedelic of "For A Moment" is also complete. The dash feeling is continued from the beginning and the performance combines. It is a flavor of psychedelic to be on a roll in the rhythm of the percussion instrument played at high speed. Or, the flow that drinking Beat Rock is recollected a little might be good.

"Impulse" is Solo with the percussion instrument. Original solo that Dumbek does might be good. Solo that matches some percussion instruments and does is very fantastic. The call and response with the percussion instrument is expressed well. Especially, the melody of the percussion instrument might be vocal. And, it connects with the following tune with this flavor continued.

"A Little Star" is a tune with a good dash feeling. The flavor of the percussion instrument to decide in "Impulse" contributes in this tune. Part of melody to emphasize bright chorus and Raga Rock. Their expressions are told with originality always.

In "Cobra Fever", the melody of a complete enchantment is a feature. Atmosphere of heavy melody and Sitar. Or, the melody of Melodica also contributes to the tune well. Psychedelic and Raga might fuse well. It is a very fantastic tune.

Raga Rock gradually established in the 60's and the derivation might have exhausted an indeed original band to the market. It is said that this album was taken up among DJ. One chemical reaction made Raga Rock and psychedelically is this exactly album.
