Although Benzaiten highlights a point in his career upon which Kitajima was being deeply influenced by western music, the musical axiomatic axis of this record is still exceedingly rooted, as well as undoubtedly and strongly indebted, to traditional Japanese music. With an underlying score of serene complacence, the overall sound of this album overwhelms and precedes the strong involvement that Kitajima would develop to New Age Music.
With a vast array of influences, which goes from electronica to psychedelic rock, the music of Osamu Kitajima works on many sources and components, absorbing inspirations from a vast panel of artists, genres and styles of music. Nonetheless, it has a strong and cohesive identity, which sees in serenity and calmness the basic principles of its objectives, perspectives and overall aesthetics.
Elevating what he has assimilated on traditional Japanese music to a standard upon which he deliberately showcases the marvelous upheaval of a deeply gracious sonorous beauty, filled with the most subtle aspects of his music, Osamu Kitajima delivers a formidable spectacle that is not only wonderful, but is also astoundingly spiritual and poetic at the same time. Seeing the possibilities music has to offer as a means of educating the individual, as well as purify his spirit and cleanse his soul, as well as his character, Osamu Kitajima foretells a journey that has his music as the basic component of an erudite understanding of art, delivering a sonorous experience whose main antagonistic purpose seems to rule over the calmness of human nature.
