4 stars A delightful surprise of instrumental excellence which oozes moody class and technical proficiency. "Four Corner's Sky" is filled with a variety of jazzy rock music brimming with musical artistry unlike most anything else out there. The songs may be straightforward enough for fans of fusion music, but these Japanese players have surprising ingenuity when it comes to making the old sound new-- not to mention possess the monstrous chops it takes to make this kind of music genuinely entertaining.

I warn that the "lead-violin" sound will likely not appeal to everyone (not right away at least), but for those who feel like taking a chance it proves to be a unique and dynamic change of pace-- don't worry... Tsuboy's playing sounds NOTHING like any of the mid- west noodling found in Kansas' music, in fact, he makes Kansas sound very mediocre. Tsuboy uses the instrument to achieve some very cool sounds, often carrying the melody but also sawing out eerie textures and soundscapes. The rest of the players are no slouches either-- they all have their moments to shine throughout the variety of songs recorded here, which range from up-beat and enthusiastic dances of dexterity to slow-tempo balladry.

A must for fans of instrumental or jazz/rock music and those seeking something off the beaten path.
