Midas and its singer-violinist Eigo Utoh perform a melodic and elaborated symphonic Progressive rock, typical of the prestigious Japanese School of the Eighties. "Beyond The Clear Air" (1988) is often regarded as one of the landmarks of the genre. Included here are four long tracks with some energic rhythms, evoking Curved Air or Outer Limits, peaceful and atmospheric Pageant-styled ballads with flying violin chords and precious guitar solos. Various styles are showcased here, from Rock In Opposition to folk-rock, not to mention Neo-Progressive. This major opus has been jointly reissued by the Musea and Poseidon labels, with a bonus track, called "Green Forest". Dissolved after this sole album, Midas reformed during the Nineties, and continues to publish albums since.
