Jade Warrior is one of those bands that simply isn't going to appeal to a large audience.  Their unique niche melding rock, folk, progressive Asian, and kitchen sink influences is just too eclectic for most ears.  And I'm certainly not a hard core fan, though I'll admit there's a place for them on my Sunday morning playlist.  Matter of fact, I'm listening to this album on an early Sunday morning (through headphones so I don't wake up the rest of the family). In contrast to the grooves, the uncredited cover art is mesmerizing.  I'd love to know what  the Japanese characters on the sail mean.
