Review

The most noticeable feature of bifurcation is the vocalist, known as aki. Without her vocals, this album would have been just another electronic arrange album. Aside from being aurally pleasing to listen to, they add another level to the production, giving it a degree of personality and memorability. As for the actual music she sings to? Definitely appropriate. The instruments and vocals work together very well, resulting in a much-appreciated melody. CYTOKINE's arrange of Nuclear Fusion has not aimed to capture the drama of the original - instead, they have toned it down somewhat. This was personally unexpected, as I have only heard dramatic and powerful arranges of this theme. With regards to choice of arranges, including an arrange of a Retrospective 53 minutes piece is a sound call, paying homage to some of ZUN's other works. Unfortunately, the arranges are very similar, all being performed in the same style. This does not mean they all sound the same, instead, that the album may not be the right choice for fans of diversity. Lithium_C 06:00, 27 May 2011 (UTC)
