In addition to several noteworthy tracks like "East Funky Dream -Alternative-", "And Then There Were None -Smooth REMIX-", and "クチナシ" which were noticeably redone the album also features a live performance of "ephemeral" (Track 05) from Flowering Night 2011.

Review

This is a must have for fans of Sound CYCLONE and a great place to start if you're new to the circle. Much of the album has been either re-mastered like in the case of track 07 "And Then There Were None -Smooth REMIX-" or re-recorded altogether like in the case of the opening track "East Funky Dream -Alternative-" or track 08 "クチナシ" which benefits tremendously from the inclusion of a real drummer and brass section. It also features the definitive version of Sound CYCLONE's Jazz tune "ephemeral" which was preformed live at Flowering Night 2011 to cheers and applause from the audience in addition to one completely new track and several tracks Sound CYCLONE contributed to Innocent Key and A-One. In short a great Touhou arrangement album whether you're already a fan of Sound CYCLONE or just getting into them, 5☆'s Ycdtosa (talk) 23:50, 10 March 2016 (UTC)
