The Review!
4 out of 5
Music by Norihiro Tsuru & Yuriko Nakamura.

This CD comes with a 2-page insert. The pages are full of artwork by Japanese artist Yoshiaka Amano. The two pages list credits for the CD.

The music is utterly beautiful in this one. These long instrumentals just blow the listener away with their astounding beauty. Composers Norihiro Tsuru and Yuriko Nakamura provide a sense of peace and inspiration in their music. Tsuru has provided for us before a world of mystic and magic with the music he provided for Heroic Legend of Arislan, and Nakamura provided music for the Japanese movie Summer Vacation 1999, but the tracks here are above and beyond the norm for both of these composers. The music is truly inspiring, and pulls out from the listener the very essence of peace.

This CD is very mellow, soft and quite slow at times. This one relies heavily upon the skills of Yuriko Nakamura, as a majority of the tracks are very piano reliant, and the tracks seem to center around each strike of the keys. The music itself is beautiful and can definitely be counted as some of the best works by Nakamura. The peaceful moments that linger throughout this CD are just the thing you need on a rough day to bring down the blood pressure, and the soothing sounds fit right into the background without a second thought.

I'd have to say beauty, peacefulness, what more could you want.
