Variations: Viewing All Wappa Gappa.
The six-year gap between Wappa Gappa's second and third albums melts upon first listen of Gappa. The band is in excellent shape, very well rehearsed, and full of excitement. Tamami Yamamoto's confident voice is what immediately draws attention - female lead singers are still a rare feature in progressive rock. Through most of the album, Tachibana plays the part of the disrupter, unexpectedly stepping out of the tonality in a solo or adding a noisy texture here and there. These interventions prevent the music from growing stale. Souk" and "Kirmes" are the two highlights of the set and also the less conventional pieces. Kirmes" adds a festive color to the palette and includes plenty of quirky keyboard parts. In comparison, "Ranja" and "The Golden Apples of the Sun" lack panache in the writing and the arrangements.

Japanese band WAPPA GAPPA was formed back in 1992, and over the next 12 years they would release a total of 3 studio productions before either splitting up or entering a state of hiatus. As news from the band stopped sometime in 2004 it’s uncertain what the real status actually is. Gappa is the bands third and so far last studio production, and was jointly released by Intermusic and Musea Records in 2004. And it is a fairly innovative creation we’re dealing with in this case, and a rather sophisticated entity to boot.
