2 stars Typical 80's symphonic japanese prog , that iIdiscovered in the mid 90's and made me wish I had not. Just kidding. But this does take some getting used to, as this might have been of importance for people discovering prog in those years, but to me this is irrelevant , pointless and tedious music adding nothing to the cannons of the genre. On top of it , this sounds overly symphonic and as usual , the japanese vocals irk me badly - a remark I must make of most of Japan groups. This is said without the slightest racist intent as I still hold dear and fond memories of an ex-japanese fiancée. This might be of great valor to people so I give it 2* as to not hurting anybody and it did have the merit of appearing in 85 - time when only England and Japan neo kept the movement alive.
