Year of release:
The first album that Kitaro composed together with his wife Keiko. The inspiration was the Butoh Dance of Koichi Tamano.
First: this release sounds like Kitaro. But you can hear the influence of his wife - and this is a good thing. There are parts that are not typical for him. Who expected a third part of Sacred Journey of Ku-Kai will be disappointed. A good album.
Second: a nagging fan I am. It would be good if Kitaro would invest some of his creativity to create some new sounds. I own several synthesizers myself and some sounds used on this album are really standard sounds or you can buy them on CDs.
