When you discover a band that's been around for awhile, it's often common to find their first album lacking a little something. Maybe it's too raw or doesn't yet contain that element that drew you to the band in the first place. Not so with TMGE. This is their 'roots' record, where they explore all facets of rock and pop. No riff or cliche is left untouched, from muscular Who-inspired power chords to hilarious Beatles harmonies. This album is definitely not as ferocious as their later records, but it is an absolutely crucial step in the formation of the TMGE sound. It is also just a terrific record in it's own right. As usual, I don't know what they're singing about, but it rocks just the same. Highly recommended.

All these years later, I still get a thrill when I put this disk into the player (or, truth be told, cue up the tracks on iTunes) and its followup, "High Time." TMGE drew on the same wellspring as a number of other Japanese bands like The Blue Hearts, Blankey Jet City, and Guitar Wolf--a straightforward rock'n'roll gusher that mixes '50s rockabilly, '60s garage rock, and the more aggressive elements of the British Invasion. Based on the records the band is lounging around looking at in the photo in the CD booklet, it's safe to say those touchstones in particular included The Who, The Animals, The Damned, and The Stooges, among others. The music bears it out, from the opening notes of opener "Tokage" (=Lizard) with its swinging, vaguely rockabilly feel updated for the 90s, running through to the instrumental closer, "Remember Amsterdam," with its blend of surf guitar and a Santana-esque groove and organ. This is solid, straightforward rock that actually swings.

For those who don't know, TMGE had become a pretty big band in Japan by the time they pulled the curtains closed in 2003 with three soldout arena shows around Tokyo. Over their career, the band went from the relatively clean, overdriven sound of this disk, their major label debut (which came on the heels of an energetic, if less interesting in the songwriting department, indie label live disk, "Maximum! Maximum!! Maximum!!!"), to a much heavier and ultimately less interesting hard rock sound across subsequent releases. The band clearly milked the sound for all it was worth and it was time to move on. (As an aside, though, that doesn't explain why the guitarist's and singer's respective post-TMGE bands Raven and Rosso sound like, well, TMGE.
