"Balancing The Twilight", by Satoru is an Alternative Rock album that takes you back to the days of the early Art Rock Movement. Hints of World and Latin sounds give the album a texture that is truly unique, especially in the rhythm aspect. The Baritone vocals and ringy, tonal guitar progressions are quite haunting. The arrangements are very original, combining classic Alt sounds with new and innovative ideas. The album is well produced and sounds fantastic. Highlights are "Too Late to Change" with David Byrne like spoken word verses, intricate rhythms and a fat bass line. "Like Shadows in the Twilight" features a tweaky Jazz guitar progression and a haunting vocal performance. "Same As Us" has a heavy Eastern influence and an intense layering of instruments. If you like David Bowie and Talking Heads, you will like this one.
