Lush. Sonorous. Rockin' J-Pop -- Boris-style.
For those expecting the usual Boris extremes of meditative droning or thick aggressive complex distortion, they may be disappointed.
This is Boris at their poppiest. The hooks, melodies and rhythms are crisp and catchy. The singing refreshingly polished as is the production.
Of course, Boris is still playing with different textures and noise as well as different song structures even in this album.
This is not the typical J-Pop rock album. You can still hear the sonic heritage of Boris, especially in track 4 Luna.
The vocal lines on Track 7 Jackson Head are reminiscent of older stuff, but the instrumentation, textures, and beat are out of some industrial dance.
There are still some reflective pieces such as track 6 Pardon?
If this wasn't from Boris I'd still recommend it but probably for a different audience. Regardless it's still a good album that's growing on me. Boris still rocks.

I randomly heard this album out of the blue and was really surprised by it. If you like shoegaze you should definitely pick this up, you won't be disappointed.
