      excellent 5

      buen remix todas las canciones se escucha muy bien sonidos unicos todas me gustaron mucho ay una cancion que se escucha que desi gloria

      A highly polished remixing retrospective 4

      Of all of the 'remix' albums Hirasawa has released either in his solo years or as P-Model this one may be my least favorite, but with that said still an amazing piece of work. It is essentially a reworking of solo-career songs into a more hyper electronic P-model-esque style; in some songs I can clearly hear the success of the project while others I feel fall a little short. My overall personal opinion of it reflects more on the individual tracks rather than as a whole concept. The first track, Solar Ray 2, is a fine reworking of the original but I think the new instrumentation is a bit lackluster. Aurora 2 takes music from the song Heaven, which is an interesting idea but I don't think it holds up very well compared to either original tracks. Philosopher's Propeller 3 is amazing! He uses pretty much the same instrumentation as the first but adds hyperactive electronics to it, unforgettable. I like the remix of Gemini much more than the original from Siren, this time around a get a far better feeling for the emotion behind it. As well as Gemini I like Sim City 2 over the original, for similar reasons. Another earlier solo track re-recorded in a more electronic presence; again, however, I think some of the initial energy in the composition is lost in the remix, still one of my favorite tracks on the CD. I can't say I like Gardener King 2 very much, the music is kind of dull, intentionally quieter, but I feel like it just sounds unfinished somehow. Forces 1.5 is a great companion to the original, as well as 'God Hand' version, very exciting and 'epic' in style, I personally prefer Take The Wheel, the original melody behind Forces, but this is still an amazing and very popular song redone for even more energy. From the last of Hirasawa's first trio of solo works comes Virtual Rabbit 2, a hyper 'electrofied' version that doesn't compromise the original at all, one of my very favorites. And finally, In the Square 2 is very similar I think to Vistoron's Antimonesia, very eclectic but pleasant and calm, ending the CD in a very favorable note. Overall, I like the album, I think it has some weaker spots, but it is after all a remix album, and has some of the best remixes I've heard. A necessary piece to any fan's collection.

      Master Susumu 5

      Susumu Hirasawa is the king of new age j-pop. This album is a compilation of themes. But all songs are mixed. I like the songs "Sekai Turbine" and "Berserk - forces". Only for Susumu Hirasawa Fans
