This review is from: Dragon String Attack (Audio CD)
First off,I'm not a fan of classical musical traditions that tend to lose integrity when paired by American pop music forms,but for stuff like GOS I can definitely make an exception! Shamisan music interlaced with technical death metal,reggae,electronica,funk,etc.--it must be heard to be believed. Shamisan adds such an interesting contrast to the music, either as background ambiance or at the forefront. The last track especially solidifies it's awesomeness as it builds up and then strides back into the same refrain as in the first song to bring the album full-circle!It's great when you have high expectations for an album and after the first minute of listening you know that the musicians: know their instruments,are having fun playing the music,and know the level that they must perform at in order for the listener to be made into a believer.
