5 stars This album came as a shock to me!Simply beautiful!...Being not too familiar with japanese bands,as the only bands I've heard so far from the japanese progressive rock scene were ARS NOVA and KENSO, I was really curious to listen to a band from this scene...And I was very lucky to have such an experience...

First of all, OUTER LIMITS is one of the most classical influenced bands I've heard...That comes not only because of the arrangements and the symphonic keyboards but mainly due to the heavy and unstoppable use of the violin and viola of Takashi Kawakuchi,he is already one of my progressive rock heroes...All the tracks are just great,balanced between melody and complexity without losing insipiration and prog rock purposes...Stunning!As for the sound the only way I can describe it is the best combination between ARS NOVA,ANGLAGARD and SAGRADO CORACAO DA TERRA with heavy doses of the italian progressive rock romanticism...Hope you can imagine it...or even better hope and wish you can taste someday this beautiful album...4.5 stars heading to 5 and simply highly recommended!...
