4 stars This album "46" created by a veteran (but vivacious) Japanese progressive rock unit QUASER was released in 2016 to pray for earthquake, tsunami, or terrorism victims like The Great Hanshin Earthquake, The Great East Japan Earthquake and Tsunami, or 9.11 Terrorism ... all of disasters have happened when the minute hand pointed the 46 minute. I've listened to some tracks upon the stage in Hiroshima, just before the 24th Memorial Day of The Great Hanshin Earthquake, and got pretty immersed in their magnificent, thrilling, intensive play. The four Quaserers, especially Takuya who suffered from the disaster 24 years ago have strong intention to pass down the serious story for every young people from now on, and this album should be the memorial collection for all Japanese.

Yes you have extreme brave ... the first track "Braves" is their supporting song for you, who cannot know what you have to do under kinda tough situation like a disaster. They sing it shall be alright you have clear encourage everytime, everywhere. These words along with deep, heavy, jazzy, and beautiful symphony can come here because of their action and passion 24 years ago. "Resilient City" was recreated by themselves via mystic melody lines and crazy powerful footworks. "Flight Of Hope" should be possessed around everyone. Gorgeous keyboard play and guitar cry might toss you a hope of delight. One of the most melancholic melodic prescription for you is "On The Beach" filled with meaningful lyrics and heartwarming sound collection.

Of course as you've realized already, their strong intention to hope safe and peace can be heard especially via the last symphonic suite "Repromised Land". Powerful melodic departure based upon critically strict rhythm nation is perfectly, permanently synchronized with Takuya's stoic lyrics. Theatrical sound diversity goes ahead smoothly but every phrase rings your bell definitely. Tough journey to a new dimension for them should let themselves digest the real world and understand which way they must go ' guess they would have create the material under such an ardent mental condition. "We have to walk for the repromised, reconstructed land eternally, even if slowly" is their sincere message through the epilogue.

This brilliant creation will notify you of massive vitality and forcefulness beneath human mind. Let me say thanks to QUASER a Japan pride and power, please.
