"Black Hole" third album, and in fact, the LP failed somewhat darker than the first two discs. At the same time the music is also a trail got tougher and earthier. This is reflected in the fact that determines the music with his electric guitar, while Izumi keyboards (organ and Mellotron) pushed somewhat into the background. In particular, the synthesizer can be heard not much - at least he is not so much the focus as never to "A Journey With The Cosmos Factory".
With the title track the album is doing very Crimson. Nestled in cutting Mellotron and swelling organ rock electric guitar and bass mixed-edged and complex. Mizutani here represents all kinds with a guitar, it sounds like Robert Fripp, times like David Gilmour and sometimes like. The play pushes heavyweight then enriched with the mysterious, sometimes screaming vocal interludes. Oddly, the piece breaks off abruptly after just 9 minutes. After the brief, organ-dominated conduction "The Vague Image" - with fripp guitar in the background - comes with "hard image", a progressive blues rockers, fitted in with grunzigem singing Japanese. "Crystal Solitaire" is then compulsory lard-ballad, but, determined by relaxing piano music, very discreet, is indeed almost beautifully turned out.
In the long "A Wandering Young Man", the group may be not quite decide between ballad and bluesy Symphoprog (Pink Floyd). The number pretty long and tough, then, provided with vocals, backing choirs huhuhu, sustained organ sounds and a long guitar solo a la Gilmour in the middle. "In Days Past" is then a slightly jazzy song with funky guitar and bass accompaniment keyboard soundscapes. Here, too, brought the exalted voice (my) European ears slightly. With "Mirror Freak" is again bleak. Mysteriously drives the music, "meditative-Asian" and a little spacey psychedelic then, supported by dense, sometimes wildly out-propelled and equipped with this time organ sounds very suitable, mysterious and imploring vocals. Sonically, the whole decorated with again reminiscent of Fripp guitar excursions, virtuoso acoustic guitar playing and monotone. Great! The final "Magic Window" is still an easy breezy Proginstrumental of the questions Mizutami Izumi and her skills on display.
