3 stars What a fantastic architecture melted with splendid music essence.

Actually, according to their musical attitude, "Melting Architecture (Yuukaikenchiku)" seems not to be a mellow music structure in a melting mood, but a sheer heart attack through heavy, eclectic beats merged with symphonic flavour. Their toffee-sweet but bitter-aggressive symphonic taste is created mainly by Nami's flute kaleidoscope. Not only graceful but also sharp like a knife ... her flute can spin your heart. Hassan's keyboard play is always strict but non-assertive, suitable to be called as an extensive ground supportive of all instruments and their soundscape. Hidehiro's guitar launches cool shots here and there, like a music magician tearing air in pieces. And Shintaro / Kei's rhythm section is terrifically steady, that can never be broken by anything disquieting. The five colours can be quite harmonized together, and create superb progressive world.

Just the same phenomena can be seen in their music style. Basically their soundscape leans toward heavy-symphonic we can say, and various elements should be blended into ... especially 70s classic progressive rock one, Oriental divine beauty, catchy essence like sur la mer, and fashionable touch like Chanson. "Platonic Dream" has ethnic weirdness and gracious uptempo pleasure both. "Der Rattenfänger" reminds me not something of a German Opera (as the song title) but a charming Parisienne or so (I wonder if some of them have been to Paris). And the last highlight "Shûdrakarman" is not only a bit catchy but also the gembox of Nami's versatile appearance. The other four have supported her steadily with their skilled play and excellent unification.

Although I hope they can squeeze more and more versatility into their soundscape for "multi-dimensional" rock texture as honestly I say, let me say please enjoy their reverberations all through the EP. Anticipating another favourite change in them for their debut full album, and of course, this EP can notify me their brilliant future.
