Prog Reviewer
4 stars The best definition for VERMILLION SANDS: The Japanese RENAISSANCE. Beautiful and refined music, sometimes a little bit folky, very pleasant to the listener.

The female vocalist, Yoko Royama, sings in English and Japanese (when she uses her native languange, melody line seems to be even more delicated), and her voice is so clear and sweet like the true Annie Haslam.

But VERMILLION isn't a clone. Despite the evident and strong RENAISSANCE's best period influence, this band sounds less classical but more "electric" (guitar work is better than the British band effort), always keeping the elegance.

All songs are beautiful and very well done, conforming an album highly recommended to those who are looking for mellow and exquisite music. And a must to RENAISSANCE style fans.
