4 stars This is the debut album by Igzit-Nine and again shows that there are plenty of strong jazz- fusion bands in Japan. Since the recording of the album the rhythm section has been replaced by the guys from Sixnorth ? I don't know the reason why as the ones on the album seem to be doing a strong job to me. This album has much more of a progressive feel about it than others, definitely much more in the fusion vein than just avant garde jazz (I use the word 'just' very loosely of course).

With each song about five minutes long, it allows the band to stretch out while not getting to far away from the theme. This is music that is structured and complex, with many layers so that the listener needs to pay attention to get the most out of it. It is music that both jazz fans and progheads will enjoy while those into fusion will have a blast. Not too far out of the norm, its very listenable nature makes this an album to savour.
