Editorial Reviews

With his sophomore release, In Focus?, Shugo Tokumaru takes his melodies and arrangements to a whole new level with increased focus, tighter orchestrations and even more memorable moments. Songs like "Decorate" and "Katachi" showcase Tokumaru's songwriting capabilities and set him apart as an established Japanese pop singer. In Focus? raises the bar and offers another great record to fans and critics alike.

Format: Audio CD
I'm still not sure why this guy isn't a huge star...it may be because he doesn't sing in English. But his music is so strong, so inventive, so gushingly melodic that it transcends that enormous barrier handily. This is by far his best effort, and again is largely a one-man show -- although there is a live drummer on more than half the cuts. It's a dazzling work, with incredibly intricate arrangements, thrilling dynamics, soaring melodies, and a vast instrumental palette that, even if it is largely sampled/sequenced, is just wondrous.

The only artist I can compare to Shugo in terms of dedication, care, technique, and flash is the Punch Brothers, but Tokumaru is by far the better songwriter. Even when things get incredibly detailed, as odd meters and tricky subdivisions fly by at a blinding rate, the power of his melodic hooks binds it all brilliantly.

Please take a chance on this one.

This album is great. Shugo always have that happy-go-lucky vibe in the songs, which I cannot imagine anyone not liking as long as they are open to it. The extreme wide variety of instruments with the uniqueness of them all makes for a real charm to listen to. As far as I can tell, it's impossible for Tokumaru-san to create a bad song.

Listen to it in the summer while sitting on a bench and watching people pass by. Nothing I can think of will offer you more peace or satisfaction.
