PROG REVIEWER
5 stars As other reviewers have pointed out, the Kenso sound often resembles the best efforts of British "progressive jazz-rock fusion" bands such as Bruford, Brand X and National Health. Some of their most majestic guitar solos also bring Steve Hackett to mind. However, it needs to be pointed out that these guys are much more than epigones. There is such joy in their playing, and their melodies (which occasionally have an East Asian flavour) sound so memorable that they have become one of my favourite progressive bands. Do you sometimes despair that no-one plays prog these days with the same palet of colours, and the same inventivity, as on CLOSE TO THE EDGE or SELLING ENGLAND BY THE POUND? Do you enjoy (maybe) the music of the Flower Kings or Spock's Beard but does the banality of their lyrics tend to annoy you? Kenso's albums are all instrumental. These guys play with great virtuosity and tremendously youthful enthusiasm. All I need to add is that FABULIS MIRABILIBUS is their most original and enjoyable album to date! (However, if you can get hold of IN THE WEST or YUME NO OKA, I'm convinced you'll be hooked as well.)

PROG REVIEWER
4 stars I enjoyed their "Dream Hill" release,but to be honest it didn't do a lot for me. So my expectations weren't that high for this one. They had me right where they wanted me. Haha. To compare the two albums is like comparing black & white to colour. This is so much more dynamic, I couldn't believe it was the same band. It's like they have totally let go of anything that was holding them back.

"Fist Of Fury" sounds like a Prog-Metal song. Fantastic scorching guitar as drums pound away so crisply and bass throbs. Some good organ from Kenichi who has guested on a RUINS album. Check it out after 3 minutes as the tempo picks up and the synths come in. The guitar is back 4 1/2 minutes in. "The Cunning Madrigal" opens with a pleasant melody before a dark and heavy sound comes in. This is incredible ! Again, I can't believe this is the same band.The guitar is beautiful, as is the organ before 2 minutes. It gets brighter sounding 3 minutes in like the intro. "Prelude To Concealment" features more heaviness. The drums and organ are great ! A change 1 1/2 minutes in as we hear a vocal melody and percussion. More splendid guitar. "Wooden Horse Pathos" again puts the spotlight on the organ and guitar as drums pound away with precision. A calm with piano is brief, and it is followed up with some blistering guitar. "The Split Gate" takes a minute to really get going. Light drums slowly beat as synths and percussion? take turns.The song gets more aggressive before 3 minutes as guitar comes in. Nice. It calms back down after 5 minutes. "Rebellion" is a great tune. The first 3 minutes make me feel good with the pounding drums and tasteful angular guitar melodies. Then they turn it up a notch for as the guitar becomes more prominant and organ shines as well.

"The Stairs For Dreaming" is a reflective acoustic guitar piece. "Echoes From Romano" reminds me of CAMEL until the pulsating synths come in. A full sound arrives 1 1/2 minutes in. "The Daughter Of A Recluse" features Eastern sounding synths? in this pleasant tune. "A Way Of Living As Taro" is another good one. An uptempo song with what sounds like vibes. The drums and bass are really well done. "Doppelganger In The Night" opens with what sounds like Hendrix on the axe. Guitar and keys intertwine the rest of the way. "Isolated Jiro" sounds like a ZEPPELIN outake. Nice and heavy with guitar leading the way. "The Understanding" is a short mellow tune that ends strongly. "A Grim Diary" opens with bass and drums before the guitar angles it's way in if you know what I mean. This is incredible ! Just a great, heavy rhythm to this one. Piano comes in and then some vocals after 4 1/2 minutes. Some nice keyboard melodies as the drums intricately beat to end the song. "Amalgamation Of Self And Others" closes the album with gentle keys and some odd sounds.

If you want to check out KENSO this is a great place to start. This was fun. Highly recommended.

5 stars Best prog album ever? Here's my exhibit A. These Japanese dudes just keep on delivering the goods. I'd been a Kenso fan for ten years before I heard this insanely brilliant, furiously energetic album (trying to keep up with Il Berlione or Happy Family, boys?). This really is quite absurdly won ...

4 stars Fast and furious, Kenso come out with all guns blazing on this release. Where some of their earlier works emphasized mood over substance, this is power fusion all the way. Maybe heavy metal fusion. Miss at your own expense. ... (read more)
