Osamu Tezuka is one of the most famous Japanese manga(comic) artists in the world.
"Buddha" is one of the epics among his mangas.He described Budda's life in his manga.
As you know,Buddha is the guru of Buddhism.
Akira Itoh is a keyboard player ,and he is famous as the member of Far Out & Far East Family Band.
He made this album inspired by the manga "Buddha".
First,when I found this album,in fact,I thought that it was boring.
Because Akira Itoh made a lot of New Age albums and they were boring for me.
I was surprised when I heard it for the first time.
Because it is the brilliant prog rock!!!!
This album is a concept album,and between tracks and tracks are not separated.
FLAC files are not separated(I don't know how to cut the files of FLAC)
But mp3 files are separated.(I know how to cut mp3)
Enjoy as you like !!!
Since May 28th,they can watch the anime movie "Buddha"(original manga by Osamu Tezuka)at the movie theaters in Japan,but no relation with this album by Akira Itoh.
