Spastic. That one word may sum up the experience of listening to the almost amazingly hyper Japanese band Polysics. Mix a gallon of potent energy drinks with ripsaw distorted guitar, jackhammer pogo stick rhythms, frenetic half sung half screamed vocals and indescribable electronic treatments, then pour on a layer of mostly Japanese lyrics scattered with English words.

Some flash from head thrashing rhythms to eerie synthesizer laden interludes, then back again to explosively jarring bursts. Music sounding right out of classic video games often punctuates their beguiling arrangements, almost as if the song had lost a life while gaming only to stand right up and face the world yet again. Until the end of the song, of course. Some may find the effect overwhelming.

Their 9th album from 2009, "Absolute Polysics" may qualify as their most aggressively energetic. The assault on the senses never ceases. A short pithy instrumental called simply "P!" launches the album off video game style. Images of Mario bashing his head into blocks and smooshing mushrooms may waft from consciousness. This erupts Krakato style into "Shout Aloud!" a phrase that seems like a laughable understatement when juxtaposed with the wailing music that suddenly flows.

A downright fantastic amalgam of styles and moods. "Young OH! OH!
