AndreaGMar 17, 2009Wow! a great album from this japanese musician, sounds like the Beatles and is masterpiece of pop and folk music, beaufiful, a lot of emotions. Recommended Tracks: Highlight songs (track pics): The guitars of "Parachute", the dark Katamari-psychedelia from "Green Rain", the sense of "Clocca" and "Hidamari". Album's Centerpiece: The magic of "La La Radio", there are many emotions in this song, maybe the song of you can't believe of exist in this world now, a wolderful centerpiece of folk pop rock music, easily THE BEST SONG FROM 2008 so far!! over Deerhunter, Fleet Foxes, MGMT, TV On The Radio and another ones. This is in my opinion THE BEST ALBUM FROM 2008. Finally, i'm so sad, because music that is popular these days sucks. It's more about image than talent, he's a genious, original, a master, and It's the obscure, almost unknown people who are usually the most musically gifted. The world needs more of these incredible and beautiful music !!! Hands down!… Collapse

AnthonyMNov 26, 2008If John Lennon were a contemporary, young, Japanese guy with a laptop and a mess of instruments I could easily see the record he might come up with sounding something like this. A variety-bag of ear candy.… Expand
WesM.Oct 3, 2008I don't even dig J-Pop (though in fairness, that's a way-too-over-general label), but I rather enjoyed it; catchy and original.
GPalfNov 18, 2008Hmmmm....... a very large hmmmmm for this one I'm afraid. If YOU have the innocence to get through it then fair play..... but if on the other hand you are a bit sensitive to quirkyness that seems to be trying too hard or if you plainly dislike music that doesn't deliver on the first 3-4 listens then I call this one twee little stinker. For people who like incense and/or enjoy being different. Musically I find it sinply annoying though production is quite nice on it.… Expand
