Review by Sean Trane
2 stars As with Bellafon and Gerard , this is the typical neo japanese product from the 80's and sharing the same flaws as those two bands. Not my cup of tea espcially dicovring this in the mid 90's and to be fairer one should read my other reviews of Japanese 80's prog to understand my feeling of that music > Gerrard 1985 album.
Review by Warthur
4 stars Mugen's third and final album follows much the same musical approach as their first - offering a blend of delicate symphonic-flavoured prog with the sort of melancholic, melodic pop-classical soundtrack stuff which Western audiences might recognise as being the sort of music a lot of anime soundtracks are built on.

As I said in my review of the debut, you could see this sort of stylistic blend as the same sort of experiment as the development of neo-prog in the UK, since both involve combining earlier prog sounds with more popular modern genres and using a 1980s aesthetic with the keyboards. On the whole, it's delightful music to daydream to in the background - heck, perhaps that's what the ladies on the cover are doing.
