Very audacious and deeply authorial by any perspective, the work presents harmonies that are driven by a lucid and sensible creative conscience, that marvelously exposes the consistence of its infallible diagram of artistry. Despite the fact that the songs are somewhat concise – which is something unusual for the genre –, they express a great volatility of consonantal flavors, mostly diluted at the vastness of its own sonorous tapestry of evocative, but lugubrious serenity; the record evolves, and the harmonies evolve altogether, in a convergence of patterns that makes the strength of the sound to gracefully contrast with its everlasting horizon of invisible tranquility. A marvelous liturgy of somnolent allegories become trapped in the fragile oceans of a conscience that never sleeps, but quietly waits for the world to dilute.
With a consistent serenity built all the way up to its frontal axis of silent glory, the music of Aokigahara is simple, but vehemently captures a rapturous stream of life at the insight of its fantastic conception of an introspective universe of timeless despondency. Despite the extension of the album, the profoundness of the work really incorporates and disperses elements of transcendental mordacity, that elevates its creative splendor to a more peculiar degree of latent sensibilities.
With a great degree of experimentalism on minimalist symphonies, Yūrei no hi is definitely a very competent musical statement, that showcases in the strength of its delightful drama placid, but expansive pieces of surreal majesty, that, at the same time, recognizes the efficient and composite structural boundaries, that never allow the harmonies to be too dispersive nor overtly dimensional. The album has its deficiencies, though, as sometimes seems too vague and drastically diffuse; nevertheless, represents the genre of folk ambient music with a very original premise, and laborious skills that knows how to introduce precise elements into it, without sounding artificial nor generic. Yūrei no hi is definitely a very good album, with gracefully lucid compositions, perfectly aware of its abilities and dispositions.
