Album Review

This new album is classic Kitaro, with many layers of synthesizer and orchestral textures stating the themes. There are more classical elements on this record, and a more "composed" feel to the songwriting.

Kojiki

I bought this album when first released in 1990 and still consider it to be the standard by which I measure not only Kitaro's subsequent recordings but also all "New Age" and Oriental classical and neo-classical recordings. There is an element in this recording which finds that place where music stirs the very essence of being. Of the thousands of recordings which I own (all genres except a chosen few) Kojiki defines all that music can and should be when seeking to reach that point where nothing else is required for completeness . . . the music speaks and the heavens listen. As the joy of Yo-Yo Ma resonates through his cello, so does the heart of Kitaro through his keyboards. Kojiki is not "on the cutting edge", it IS the cutting edge.

Kitaro's finest

Kojiki is beautifully written and wonderfully executed. This has to be Kitaro's most brilliant work. Powerful arrangements, heartfelt melodies, a most fantastic mix of electronic and traditional instruments all brought together by Kitaro's sheer genius. This is essential Kitaro.

In 1972, however, he met the innovative German synthesist Klaus Schulze during a trip to Europe. Kitaro was...
