Album Review

Reviewed 2010-01-31
Japanese band (with one frenchman) lead by an old man who's a legendary bass player, here he plays a fuzzy sort of echoing guitar most of the time. described as 70's downer pop and bar-rock which sounds perfect to me. I would also add that if someone can get this in Quentin Tarantino's hairy palms, the album would be heavily featured in his next film, Jackrabbit Slim. FCC: All lyrics in Japanese (or French).


***1. strong sense of narrative on this one. fem vox too
*2. breaks it down in the middle to speak some lovely french while the guitars screech behind. most featured is a really jangly sitar-like guitar
**3. really upbeat, almost surfer-rockish in the middle but the old man croons like it's a lost-love song. Women laughing later, children laughing
4. dual vox. refrain: (en anglais) "I love you"
5. guitars kinda do their own thing here, yet never clash, prolly as intricate as they get here too. also, fem vox
6. tiny dose of piano. too, insistent guitars. more french dialog. "Ce soir" refrain. melancholy, i want to say but the guitars almost overpower such a feeling
7. sounds like saying goodbye. something about a chinese man
8. more solid guitar (rather than the echoey fuzzy stuff). dual male vox again, and strumming to come to a peaceful end. [Ends at 2:20, then hidden tracks]
