4 stars A totally new name to me, but one I will keep an eye on in the future. The same can be said about the musicians here.

This is a side project of Ruins and other Japanese bands. This is also a live album and it seems like the band is mostly a live band. No reason to waste valuable time in the studio, then.

The music here is zeuhl and pretty similar to the zeuhl Magma does. But their brand of zeuhl also have pretty much have a crossover appeal to Soft Machine fans like myself. It is from that angle I approach this album. The music is dense, jazzy and pretty much the ABC of zeuhl.

The quality is almost frightening great. It is obvious the musicians here is of a quality the rest of us can only admire and hopelessly aspire to. The compositions are great, although I guess largely improvised. The tangent playing here is absolute great and the best thing about this album.

In short; I can only add my praise to this album which is one of the better zeuhl albums around.

4 stars
