Sei Ho / The West / Towards the West / 西方
Towards the West

Polydor


Year of release:

1985


General:

One of the less-known albums. Funny: the album is nearly a soundtrack, because some of the songs have been used one year earlier in the movie Homecoming. The song "Delight", an instrumental song, got famous because of its vocal version by Anita Mui: 似水流年" ("Years Flowing Like Water").


Other releases:

Japanese title: Sei Ho (The West). Released in Europe and North America as "Towards the West". Some of the songs were previously released with different names on the promotion EPs Four Seasons of Quality und Aura No Saiten.


Track list:

  1. Auspicious Omen / 吉祥
  2. Halo / 日暈
  3. Melancholy / 憂愁
  4. Embayment / 入江
  5. Great Voyage / 渡海
  6. Sacred Mountain ・ Sunrise / 霊峰・来迎
  7. Delight / 歓喜
  8. In Peace / 安寧
  9. Utopia / 無可有
  10. Endless Journey / 果てしなき旅路


My opinion:

Some songs sound like Silver Cloud, others like Silk Road. I like this album. My tip: search in the Internet for the vocal version of 似水流年" ("Years Flowing Like Water").
