This album is beautiful. However, it's quite obscure. And not only that, it is also obsolete.

You see, not long after this album was published, KOEI put out a much larger print of the album "Uncharted Waters II Special Edition." The album included this entire 12-track CD, but also tacked on five songs from the first Uncharted Waters as a bonus. So if you want easy access to this fine, fine album, buying the Special Edition is the way to go.

But, if you are a super-duper collector, and you already own the original "Uncharted Waters" album, I could see some value in having this one as well. However you get the music is up to you (this CD or Special Edition, your choice). What matters is that you get it. These are some of Kanno's best, and most ethnically diverse, compositions in her entire career. The music is simply astounding.
