Spazmo transonic rhythm: first came the idea, then came the action and then it got hot. Like the birth of the atomic age and, what the hell, it's deeply troubled adolescence a first time BOREDOMS experience stuns with sheer brilliance. It's an event after the occurrence of which there is no going back. By turns manic and explosive, brooding and quiet, whimsical and awkward, the Boredoms rock harder, wilder, and cooler than the most chest puffing Metal Heads and cock o' the walk rappers. And even when their self invented "Bore language" hits a peak in barbarous density, naive and spastic introspection usurps all expectations. If ever there is one band that can transform shorted circuitry into a sublime maelstrom, it's this Osaka goon show. Vision Creation Newsun follows the groovitude of the much loved Super Are with additional funkiness and space time continuosity. It is Funk, it is Trance, it is drum'n'bass, and it is wayyyyyy Psychedelic. The Boredoms' pirouettes into new musical highs with each subsequent release have consistently impressed the world's rich supply of joyless humbugs, won over the clinically indifferent, and amazed the unamazeable. They've been doing it for years, the same reliable line up that has always created music for all 'noids to rejoice to vocalist YAMANTAKA EYE leading a celebratory loin cloth journey to the heart of the sun; guitarist YAMAMOTO SEIICHI surfing grooves effortlessly with the silkiest pickin' since Ry Cooder discovered Sangria; YOSHIMI P-WEE adding her graceful as the kitchen sink drumming style while keeping it with the corps; plus a new starship trooper who just pushes the beat farther into space.
On Vision Creation Newsun, the Boredoms continue to pursue the phoenixlike transformation first revealed on 1998's Super Ae, rising from rock's modern primitives to become elemental prog-mired magi. This nine-track song cycle features symbols for titles. The 13-minute opening track is an epic paean to new-eon sun worship that centers on a circular rock riff, a firestorm of free-form tribal drums, and snatches of Beach Boys-style vocal harmonies that burn out in a haze of sweeping analogue synths. It sets the tone for what is to follow. Successive tracks bleed blissfully into one another, an ebb and flow of elemental energy riding successive waves of distortion and clear blue sound. Time signatures are perverted with phase and delay. Like the movement of a tape loop around the spools, the slack is reined into a tight merciless groove backing lunar chants and solar madrigals. So expansive it literally defies description, Vision Creation Newsun provides an infinitely rewarding listening experience. --Chris CampionSee all Editorial Reviews

This is a great place to start. Not as screamingly bombastic and noisy as some (pop tatari, or chocolate synth), and not as elongate and hypnotic as some (sea drum... Read morePublished on May 17, 2007 by Geoffrey R. Balme

Nothing much to say here, it's just Super AE with more drumming. Same type of album though, and also very good.Published on February 17, 2004 by Peter
