3 stars Like Erik Neuteboom said, this is among the first japanese bands that i heared. All the music of Gerard is around the stunning keyboard wizard Toshio Ega - his work on hammond, korg and mellotron make envy every key player of of this planet. The music is mainly influence by ELP but with a good cantity of bombastic symphonic arrangements and neo prog moods. Anyway this album is not their best but enjoyble in places, i think the title track Irony of fate is the best here, features nice and smooth piano intro and than an absolute madness on keys, moog. The lyrics are in japanese so for the listners is a minus in Gerard's music. Irony of fate is a 3 star album not bad, not by far, but the next 2 Gerard - Pendulum from 1996 and Pandora's Box from 1997 and the previous one Empty lie, empty dream from 1985 are much better.
