Kaito-kun The vocals on this album are fantastic! NTsKi shows a lot of range across the album, with a lower tone on some songs (On Divination in Sleep, Labyrinth of Summer) and more head voice in others (Plate Song, Lan se). The instrumentals are really good too, especially that bassline on Labyrinth of Summer. And of course, can't forget that transcendent intro with all the layered vocals. Favorite track: On Divination in Sleep feat. Dove.

petalslip What a beautiful album! Plenty of highlights, but only space for some:
The opener grabs your attention immediately with wordless vocal harmony, accented with breath shifting around you, animal sounds, and gentle chimes. I love this as a mood setter and how it introduces the album’s sonic focus on NTsKi’s vocals.
Track 2 is a beautiful harmony with layered vocals. We even get an excellent remix by Giant Claw that puts them center stage!
Track 9 has a great bass line, love NTsKi’s performanc Favorite track: On Divination in Sleep feat. Dove.

Her collaboration with 7FO, released through EM Records, was selected as one of the best of the year by Shintaro Sakamoto. In addition to her self-produced works, she has participated in the works of Giant Claw, CVN, Shokuhin Matsuri a.k.a foodman, Dengaryu, KM, etc., and has released through overseas labels including TAR and Orange Milk.
