Following on the acclaim of her debut album R', Rurutia's second album is no sophomore slump. Presenting 10 tracks in a fusion of rock, pop, highly imaginative lyrics, and the artist's etheral and sometimes tortured voice, "Water Forest" smooths out some of the rawness and wrinkles from Rurutia's debut (such as off-key singing), and moves from the alt-rock sound toward more esoteric territory, retaining a blend of both. The opening track, "Pavane" is possibly the best song on this album, ranging from quiet, luminescent verses to dramatic choruses accentuated with hard guitar--a truly artistic achievement. The three singles on the CD are as varied and good as the other tracks. Once again, Rurutia has released an excellent album. The only thing that would make it better is if it were a little longer.
