Exactly brilliant sunrise over the Japanese progressive rock scene!

With the first track [hΛmaebeθ] Yoninbayashi can shoot a psychedelic arrow into our heart and brain. Our heart should get palpitated and our brain confused by this sound explosion. Sora To Kumo (The sky and clouds), with terrific voices by Katsutoshi, is a psychedelically beautiful song. Steady rhythms and melodic sounds sometimes make us relaxed and sometimes anxious or unstable. Why? ...Maybe, we can find a shadow behind safe and peace of this song. Omatsuri (A festival) is impressing with this lyric "I can't help cryin' by visiting at the fest town". Yes it can remind us our old days with weeping. Be immersed in a pathos and palpitated with percussive sounds in the latter. Isshoku-Sokuhatsu (Touch and go), by Katsutoshi, with a bit heavy guitars and mellotrons, should be influenced with Pink Floyd ABSOLUTELY. Ah...some parts are like King Crimson style in LARKS period...I feel. One of phrases is just like The Dark Side Of The Moon, and another One Of These Days or Echoes...feel and chuckle! In Ping Pong Dama No Nageki (Deep sorrow of a ping-pong ball), with the sounds of a ping-pong ball dropping to the ground, lots of graceful and sorrowful melodies go around us. I consider it be so suitable for the last of this wondrous story.

No suspicion that we can get damaged with fantasy. Suprahighly recommended by DamoX.
