CD Reviews

My first intro to Kitaro, and still my favorite
A. John Gironda III | No Virginia, USA | 02/27/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"A friend lent me a cassette of this in the late 1980s and I listened to it 8 times in a row before I worried about putting wear on it and before I thought about copying it (then listened to it without having to turn over the cassette (on a reel to reel) another four times. Obviously, I had nothing else to do that day, but I could not believe what I was hearing--it evoked soooo much emotion, that of a worldly life). Thankfully, it became available on CD and I bought it many years ago. Turned up loud, or soft with earphones, this album has both invigorated me and helped me relax, especially when I can't sleep; I just let the music take me away.

To me, the album is the story of a man laying dying after living a thousand years, recounting his life to his youngest great-...-grandson. The intro song is just an intro, but the beginning of the second song takes us back to the man's younger days...the tempo let's me see a low level flight over a vast stretch of sand. (Sand is on the cover; sands of time?) Each song then becomes a major chapter or event in the man's life. The small plant in the sand on the album cover...newest life--the life, the son he's talking to as he finally dies. I'd be happy if it were the last album I was able to listen to."

""Millennia" is the original soundtrack from "Queen Millennia, the movie". A soundtrack full of aerial electric sounds.
Simply beautiful."
Indeed a cosmic sound

"This album was produced at early activity of Kitaro.
Although his album was made as a soundtrack of Japanese animation movie "Queen Millennia", listeners can enjoy Kitaro's cosmic sounds irrespective of the movie.

Prologue (Track 1) is a short introduction of Track 2 (Space Queen).
Queen's name is Puromesyume (Japanese name is Yayoi Yukino), who is one of ladies appearing once per 1000 years to save the earth.
"Seiun" (Track 3) is the meaning of "nebula" in English.
"Hikari No Sono" (Track 4) is the meaning of "garden full of light".
"Maboroshi" (Track 5) is the meaning of "phantom".
"Cosmic Love" (Track 6) has been often played in concerts jointed with the next track "Jiyu Eno Kakehashi", which is the meaning of "bridge to freedom"."
