4 stars Welcome to mysterious Shipwreck. The invitation to their theatre gets started with the first track "Flying", that exactly gives us huge passion and power with their quiet ballad and enthusiastic sound saucer. Please get knocked down firstly.

"Chandelier Suite" is one of their masterpieces. Shows a variety of sound appearances ... sometimes powerful, sometimes sensitive, and sometimes dry and cool, along with speedy and kaleidoscopic warmth of sound. The voices are too weak, delicate for this soundgarden, but we can be taken to a dreamland with their beautiful heavy rock chords. On the other hand the following track "Soft Napalm Pillow Dreams" is a slow ballad, with superb chorus, crying guitar works, and graceful piano solos. Safe and sound via such a hearty stuff we can gain into our heart. "Mount Davidson" is a fragile song, that has warm stability and cold instability. Well matured, well balanced with the two contradictory flavours, quite amazing one really.

"Unclouded Eyes" sounds like a heavy symphony with cynical tone colour alterations and mixture with plainness and eccentricity. Such a complex chord progression cannot confuse us at all but notify us something comfortable. Cannot digest this song easily but get invaded smoothly, oh well. Another drastic sound theatre "Save The World" runs like a whirlwind of colourful explosive flowery flavour launcher ... simple riffs based upon fascinating rhythm kicks and cool but deep bass quakes let us dream a clear dream. And the last magnificent suite "My Fantasy" blows our ears onto the dark side of the moon, where are complete distorted harmonies and sensitive percussive sonic theatre. What is showed by the heavy and sharp ending? Real mystery, enjoy much.

Thanks to chris s for the artist addition.
