This song has joined the guest of haruka nakamura, ARAKI Shin, and Hiroki Chiba, and the strings arrangement throughout the album is Hibiki Ichinose. Interlude: A Ceremonial Ode (M-6) and the title track "Altar of Dreams" (M-7) was influenced by advertising the 1980's Scheido starring the model Yamaguchi. The title track is also a song born from "clear dream", which once brought April to a reality evacuation, and the rest of its calming beauty is covered by the tension, as if the control of the clarity dreams works when facing the unknown world. Following "Silk and Satins" (M-8) is a direct analyzer of the form-forward clarity dream.

This glittering piece expresses destruction, mystery, undility, hope, and dream, and more at once, is full of new aspirations of ASPIDISTRAFLY that has spent 10 years rebuilding the world of clear dreams and memories. </p>
