Editorial Reviews

"Fiendish and crazed, Ruins explore string-popping ideas only to degenerate into complex whirlpools of distortion, then regroup into a new version of their original idea with surprising grace. Ruins grow on you like a cancerous cell, and are killer." -- CMJ

The members of Japan's Ruins have extensive experience and tireless commitment! A furious barrage of explosive and intricately composed drum(s) and bass, Ruins covers all stops between hardcore's hysteric intensity, metal's pummeling dynamics, and the confounding inscription of progressive rock. No slack. No slop.

Absolute masters of quick-change, stop-start tempos and time signatures, Ruins crafts an unprecedented amalgam of originality, all sung in a peculiar language of the group's own invention. The first album to feature bassist Sasaki Hisashi, Refusal Fossil [Special Edition] re-issues the long out-of-print Refusal Fossil full-length, plus five previously unreleased tracks, all remixed and re-mastered by the band's Yoshida Tatsuya (Koenjihyakkei).

Also featuring a host of guest musicians from the Japanese avant scene (including Yamamoto Seiichi of Boredoms), Refusal Fossil [Special Edition] boasts twenty-five cuts in all--over an hour-long blast of zig-zag calisthenics!

... actually, the songs seem pretty tight and organized. This album comprises twelve unreleased tracks from 95-97 and eight live tracks recorded at SHOWBOAT Tokyo on 7th Feb. 97, and feature guests on sax, vocals, guitar, and keyboard. Displaying the usual but good side of ruins we all know and hopefully love, are the first twelve tracks. Each song manages to have personality within the framework they write. Occasionally expanding on that, doubling the bass melodies with some odd keyboardish effect, or the electronic manipulations of "Still Life," an adequately titled piece. The next eight are live tracks and I think are more interesting because of the guests, and the different sounds they contribute to the band. Ends on a prog rock medley which is dedicated to and features tunes from twenty-four prog bands. Though I can only recognize one of them...

i just got this album and it's great! the sound quality is blown-out and distorted which makes it stand out among the other ruins albums i've heard. it's not a bad thing! it just sounds like it was recorded on a 4-track with levels in the red. there's no digital "clipping" like the other reviewer said. but it does sound like a wall of noise sometimes, in a good way. plus there's some awesome live bonus tracks featuring special guests. one of their best albums!

10 plus years in, but here Ruins oddly sound like they were still not ready to put forth their demented angularities with great conviction yet, and the production does not compliment anything either. RF is a very ugly album, both in ways intended and not, and besides for a few clue-you-in passages eliciting that mind blowing competency coming together to remind listeners why this group is important, sounds like speed addicts in a garage.
