Review

This album is hidden gem in my opinion, it has a really outstanding instrumental performance (especially for a doujin circle) but is held back by some of it's vocals. That being said if you can look past some shaky vocal performances there's allot to like about the album. Tracks like タクティクス, East Funky Dream and 貸したゲームがラクガキだらけで返ってきた件 make great use of the chorus of vocalists on stage and are the stand out vocal tracks as a result. Of the instrumental tracks "Higher than the Sun" standing out among the rest with some ear catching guitar work by Crouch but it's worth noting that all of the tracks (vocal and instrumental) feature solid instrumental performances. I'd recommend watching the performance of track 5 Night Flight [Urban Midnight MIX] which ShavaDava uploaded to get a feeling for the album. Ycdtosa (talk) 23:38, 10 March 2016 (UTC)
