This cd by the Japancakes has to be one of the most beautiful, and brilliant, works of the last century. Every single song on this disc plays like a miniature piece in one's life. Although there aren't words, this is what the Japancakes are known for, and the music well more than makes up for this loss. There are plenty of dynamic shifts to keep it from getting dull, and the pedal steel work is absolutely the most spectacular thing I've ever heard. This CD is a must have for anyone who likes beauty. Period.
