4 stars This is one where I had to write a review as soon as I could! Before the opening Argo suite of 7 tracks had finished I knew this was a permanent addition to the rotation, and I must hit the back catalogue soon. Yuka is a skilled keyboard player who is throwing a new melody at you every chance she has, although the music reminds me of Camel or Yes, her solos are very Tony Banks style. The band is obviously influenced by Yes, the art on their debut album even appears to be a copy of the current 'Yes font'. Although there are English and Japanese vocals, the majority of the music is instrumental and full of keyboard and guitar solos. The strong melodies are the real highlight, I find these songs stuck in my head all day sometimes. Listen to Old Ship on the Grass and I promise, it will come back. The guitar playing is also incredible throughout, with some cool riffs (Landing) and really fantastic leads (Did You Find A Star? and the solo in Golden Fleece stand out), this player is quite busy while always making sure the focus is back on Yuka by the end.

Absolutely worth hearing if you haven't yet. One of the best 2018 releases I've heard. 4.25 stars,
