  • The arrangements are way too synthetic on this album. She should have kept working with Taro Hakase, he really understood her music.
  • 軌跡 (Kiseki) <3
  • 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.
  • masterpiece [6]
  • 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.
  • Least good album. Still enjoyable, I guess.
