Review Summary: An underrated album and an overlooked artist on Sputnik who creates rivaled progressive jazz/classical music amongst its greats; ie. Rush, Yes, Genesis

Japanese composer, Hiromi Uehara creates an album filled with soul. Although not your typical genre of soul, Hiromi plays progressive jazz/classical piano, encompassing the deepest visions she sees in her mind. Her music comes from a special place. When you hear such tracks as “Temptation”, you can feel her smooth piano style gracing your ears, as if a tempest is seducing you with her sweet titties and fine ass. The flow and effortless ability she possesses is similar to no other.

Each song is a progressive journey through her mind, thus opening up your mind for a connection she wants with you. Hiromi is no solo artist, or a "one man band", she plays with a bassist and drummer who are very essential for the sound she is creating, one being love, grace, fire, passion, beauty, and moving emotions.

The track self titled track Voice, which also happens to be the opening track, makes the point immediately; the point being, Hiromi slays as hard as Rush.

The first 40 seconds have a mellow build then the melody theme starts, which makes you feel like something special is going to happen. The bass and drums come in around this point and all the of the sudden, your like, the guys rush hard. The drums are prime, the bass is prime. The bass feels like the tech skill from Gorguts, Geddy Lee, and who care’s else, that's good enough. There’s a *** load of odd times on this track as well. The skill of all musicians cruising their instruments with passion and skill is amazing. And they are not wanking, this is music ***ers. What happens on this same track at 7 minutes is sex.

Moving on because I don't want to talk about one track the whole time, the album is of great consistency. Track two, Flashback is groovy, Labyrnth kinda lags a tad but is still good. Desire is progresses into awesome riffs. Haze is the most mellow track off this album besides Temptation and is good to wined down to.

If you want more Rush, listen to track 8 Delusion and get f'ckd hard.

Overall this album flows well, can get monotonous at times, but deserves ears. Any lover of good music that flows well and sounds just like Rush without the vox should check this out.

Check out Temptation, Voices, and Delusion. Best tracks and f’ing jam.

Never heard of her but she sounds like she'd be relaxing to listen to. And as for the review, it's
okay but I wish it was a little longer.
