An amazing effort to combine house music with the artier sides of pop and rock. A very engaging and surprising listen.
A crazily upbeat and hyperactive hardcore punk/noise rock record--probably the most focused and mature thing Melt-Banana has done in their impressive (and longer than you might realize) career. No one else sounds remotely close to this band--vocalist Yasuko might be the most unique 'singer' in modern rock with her chirped/screamed/rapped delivery (all in English), and Agata is easily one of the most inventive guitarists working today. I dare you not to fall in love with this album.
