Wappa Gappa - Gappa (2004)

The third and final album from this Japanese band.

The band was a quintet with a lineup of drums, bass, guitars, keyboards and vocals.

I have very much appreciated their first two albums. The band has something I find hard to describe, but who makes their albums well worth spending time with.

Gappa is sadly their final album. 

I would have loved to see this band develop and flourish. In particular with the very goods vocals of Ms. Tamami Yamamoto. Her vocals are really cool and jazzy.

We are again treated to over an hour worth of jazzy, melodic prog. There is a lot of neo-prog here too. The music has a Japanese flavour.

The vocals are in Japanese and that makes this album very refreshing. Ditto for the art-work.

The vocals floats on the top of some melodic guitars and keyboards. 

The music is good throughout this well over one hour long album. Something that makes me mourn the demise of this band..... Well, their three albums is to be enjoyed.
