The Japanese psytrance scene likes to sound different, unconventional, sometimes more techno oriented as well. And for me, it can be a hit-and-miss affair. For the collectors and those who like this sound, this is an interesting release. All tracks were made in the nineties, four of them were unreleased. 
UT001 is one of them, it sounds like proto Goa on a fast tempo. Far East Frequency is a catchy trancy track that was released in the Mind Rewind series. Glycogen is a highlight here, a typical brilliant melodic Goa trance composition of the mid-nineties. Apollo is a short but awesome proto Goa track, catchy and easy to digest, cannot go wrong with this to close an album.
The rest is more techno oriented and in my opinion forgettable, not inspiring and did not age well (that is my issue with some Japanese psytrance).
Even though it's not my personal favorite style, it's definitely good enough on a given day.

Rating: 6.5/10.

I'd like to mention that Ree.K is one of the very few woman among the goa pionneer producers along with famous Miranda & also ManMadeMan (which is indeed a duo not a solo woman).

And just for that, this release should get some support,respect and a least one attentive listen ^_^.
