Fantastic debut from a fantastic artist! Mellow and relaxing, yet brimming with passion, all anchored by Yumi's distinctive voice. All of the songs are great, and there's a lot of diversity while maintaining a cohesive tone.

Album Highlights:
*Hikouki-gumo (Poignant tribute to a deceased friend of Yumi's. Used in Hayao Miyazaki's "The Wind Rises")
*Kumorizora (Mysterious and intimate-sounding verses coupled with a passionate, determined chorus create a beguiling track.)
*Kitto Ieru (Creative, constant key changes and an exuberant vocal from Yumi make for thrilling listening.)
*Velvet Easter (A lovely ballad with a fantastic sense of progression.)
*Ame no Machi wo (My favorite song on the album. A lush, melodically rich ballad with a beautiful arrangement. Absolutely gorgeous on all fronts.)
*Sonomama (Folk influences and an emotional vocal performance come together to create a powerful, satisfying album closer.)
