4 stars Please eat Mako's mixed music salad.

This title as looking down on us or as looking up toward the outer zone... First I said 'Huh?' in spite of myself (not kidding!), but at once I heard the album I was absorbed deeply into it. Hahhaha, how crazy, how funny & funky, and how clever Mako is!

I consider this album was the first Mako produced as a story or a conceptual one. (At the beginning starts the 'SUPER RECORD' interlude and lets us chuckle surely.) Each part has a title but it's almost impossible for us to realize the interval between one part from another. We may think this work as one song or track and the names of whole parts as a stream of the work. Mako could make this work by himself only, and could play over a hundred instruments wonderfully. Exactly this can be called as music salad... extremely plenty of instruments(an electric guitar, drums and percussions, a keyboard, a sitar, and various wind and string sections), a sound effector & controller, and Mako's noisy voice sometimes inserted...all are natural and appropriate for the song. And surprisingly each sound gem is not scattered chaotically but set systematically by him. Into the 50 minute song Mako could push completely his attitude and intention at this moment...except some messages for the outer space... :-)

This is one of the raw materials for us to understand Mako's spacey mind SLIGHTLY. Now this stuff has got to be a rare with a premium and difficult to get...sadly.
