Prog Reviewer
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.

Warthur | 4/5 |
