    The arrangements are way too synthetic on this album. She should have kept working with Taro Hakase, he really understood her music.

    My first album of her and my entry into Akiko's musical cosmos. I adore its godly melodies, Akiko's "jubilant" voice(s) and symphonical arrangements a very lot. Moreover, I like the concept of that record (the 4 elements: air, fire, water, earth and their compatibility). Favourite tracks: #2, 3, 10, 12, 13, 14 and 17.

    Akiko's decadence started rising in 2009. Cleverly crafted compositions and a rare eclecticism partly ruined by over-the-top arrangements, bad vocal and instrumental choices, useless effects and synth overload, messy mixing and mastering. That pretty much sums up Harmonia. Low on magic, a big letdown compared to everything she's done before, yet very far from a bad record (I do like it anyway)... only very frustrating.

    v listens to a shitload of bands that are much worse than this album. apparently grandhipster loves DCD ripoffs and isnt able to recognize original creation. tho I do admit she sounds sick on this album. maybe chako hattori recorded it instead of shikata lol.

    Great concept album. The composition is flawless. So is the execution, except for 志方さま's established inability to deliver correct pronounciation of foreign languages (remember HOLLOW?) ._. I couldn't help being thrown off of the magical moments of 遥かなる旅路 by the nearly unrecognizable deliverance of the Turkish and Uyghur lyrics. (FYI, one is my mother tongue and the other is a close relative that I happen to speak a little; and I didn't even notice that until I looked at the booklet.) If you know none of the foreign (i.e. non-Japanese) languages used in the lyrics, it's an astounding masterpiece. If you happen to know any of those languages,... it's still an astounding masterpiece XD. You just get distracted by the mispronounciation in the first few listens; but then you get used to it and start appreciating the omnipresence of the beauty overall. Long live 志方さま!

    This is a stunning album... I love every track, and I like the fact electric guitar is more present, that's a welcome change -it sounds great! :D (but don't misinterpret me, I LOVE her acoustic songs :)

    A masterpiece! I have no words to describe it... But what else could we expect from such a talented, wonderful, unique artist?
