I don't write reviews and my English isn't good enough to write one, but I can't help commenting on this album.
Taishi, a DJ, and Aoba Ringo, a seiyu and singer, have created their signature song "Insanity" in 2007. In 2010 they formed a unit "TRäkker", and this is their maiden work.

This album is a brilliant blend of trance and Aoba Ringo's vocal, you can either think it is a vocal trance or song (J-Pop?) album.
I do not think there is one song in this album which is not worth listening to, but "Separate Wings" definitely is the spotlight that it was chosen as the promotional song of the album (you can watch the PV on niconico in high quality). Many people complained the edited version is too short (3 minutes) but if you have this album, you can enjoy the whole track for almost 10 minutes!

My second favourite song is "Trail of Dust". This is a HR/HM song, but with a sudden the tempo changes and a beautiful breakdown follows.
I somehow thought the guitar in this track sounds like CROW'SCLAW, and later I found out taka the guitarist from CROW'SCLAW is really the featured guest! What a surprise!

There are also a few instrumental songs. "Standard Unison" is a typical J-Trance track, "Outsider" has a darker feel and I like how the violin sounds, while "The Inner Gaze -Will-", a blend of trance, ambient and drum 'n' bass, has the same uplifting atmosphere with "Separate Wings".
A new arranged version of "Insanity", "Insanity -Rebirth-" is also included. This will definitely please old fans!

In conclusion, either a trance or J-Pop lover shouldn't miss this album. You won't regret every second spent for this 1:18:43 long album!
A vocalless version is also available on the bonus disc, which is oriented towards pure trance listeners, but you must pre-order to get the extra bonus disc.
