Review by erik neuteboom
3 stars The debut CD from this Japanese band is an exciting blend of dynamic jazzrock (great guitar and synthesizers) and mellow symphonic rock like early King Crimson (wonderful violin-Mellotron eruptions). I had to wait 7 years for their next album, had Providence succeeded in making another strong album?

The line-up includes a new guitarist and an additional saxophone player. The first track Hcho 40 delivers varied climates, from a tight and powerful up-tempo rhythm and compelling bombastic keyboards to mellow pieces with violin, piano and sampled Mellotron (Vintage Keys). Then the song An Epilogue For Cajolment, it starts with propulsive organ - and keyboard work, followed by flashy synthesizer flights (in the vein of Toshio Egawa from Gerard), powerful saxophone and biting Lifeson-inspired guitar play. Next is the long titlesong The Once Was A Night Of Choko-Muro The Paradise: it is loaded with pleasant shifting moods and good soli on guitar, organ, violin, synthesizer and a kind of talkbox (like Peter Frampton). Entertaining but at some moments it sounds a bit too fragmentic. The other five tracks sound varied, alternating from dreamy with acoustic guitar, piano and even accordeon to heavy with fiery wah-wah drenched guitar soli. Although the female singer lacks a bit power, she sings beuatiful so I would like to conclude that this is a fine progrock effort from Japan.
