403 is one of my favorites from Fantastic Plastic Machine's Sound Concierge series. Although I'm not going to be translating the album notes anytime soon, it seems that the 40Xs are downtempo/lounge mixes, while the 70Xs are more dance/club oriented.

Tomoyuki Tanaka makes some great music, but he's also a great DJ. The track selection is top notch, if you like that retro lounge feel that seems to be a defining characteristic of the shibuya-kei movement. It borders on kitsch, but it's too intelligent and self-conscious to be true kitsch. What you're left with is all the fun and none of the cheese.

Given the inflated import price and relative difficulty of acquiring this album, I'd recommend it mostly to die hard fans can't get enough of Tanaka's work. If you're looking to get into the Sound Concierge series, I would recommend this as a place to start. The other volumes are decent as well, but this is a particularly inspired mix. Buy it if you can find it.

I was a bit late getting around to the Sound Concierge series, and even still this is my first real foray into them. There are several different versions, and as a previous reviewer stated they are all geared towards different genres and overall feels. Some of them are more energetic with more electronic/danceable tunes, some seem to have more funk and soul to them, and then there are some that are relaxed. What intrigued me was honestly Tomoyuki Tanaka, who put this together (of Fantastic Plastic Machine). This was bound to be an interesting mix of songs and the best part is that it was put together by a real student of music/collector of music. I mean, there were some really interesting remakes on this that I simply had to check out.

I really liked this mix of tunes. I think there's a little bit of something for everyone, thanks to the diverse selection of artists and songs. It opens up wonderfully with the great Mario Castro-Neves take to a Stevie Wonder classic, "Summer Soft". I quite like this version as it has a very nice, warm feel with that Brazilian feel; it literally takes you back to the mid-late 70s. Wonderful vocal and instrumentation. Unfortunately, I wasn't crazy about the follow-up "Dream Goes On Forever", which even for an 'eclectic mix', doesn't quite fit in here and... funny as it may sound... oddly dated. But the album picks up immediately after with "Sun Shower", a nice little song with hints of African musicianship and feel to it and children's chorus. Yet again, another song that will take you back. "I Think of You" follows, which is a cute song with simple but good guitar work and male vocals. Later, we're taken back into the late 60's with Triste Janero's classic "Rene De Janero".

A very different compilation. "Night & Day" by Everything But The Girl - hauntingly cool. "A Dream Goes On Forever" - resurrected decently. Give 'er a listen, it's not for everybody, but if you "get it" it's relatively unique.
