    review from Progweed:
    Blecch... well for one thing there is NO excuse for looking the way these guys do on the back cover. A straight out of the early 80s look complete with makeup and huge hair and so forth. On the other hand, having spent time in Japan, I know that their "pop culture" is about 5 -10 years behind the U.S., so I guess I can understand. As for the music, this is simply acceptable neo-symphonic with very good musicianship all around, but fairly uninteresting compositions and songs.
    At first I thought things were going to be alot worse than they actually were, as the opening track begins with the funky slap bass (a style I hate) that pervades the album. When the female vocals come in, they really sound like the kind of Japanese elevator pop I was constantly exposed to while I lived over there. However, over the course of the album, more interesting compositional elements tend to come to the fore, and the keyboardist and guitarist are actually quite good. Unfortunately, the music is extremely vocal oriented, and though the singer does have a *technically* sound voice, I find the phonetics of Japanese vocals difficult to get used to, not to mention the already horrific associations I have with the aesthetic feel of the album.
    Overall this is pretty overdone and slickly overproduced symphonic that borders on pop and stereotypical neo-progressive, and though it has some good moments, I really can't recommend this at all. - Greg Northrup [February 2001]
