7/10 Jack Customer review, 14th December 2015
I like this album. It's not terribly deep, or anything, just a bunch of Japanese guys horsing around with synthesisers, and occasionally poking fun at Japanese culture. It blends a 1980's synth style with robotic voices and a slow beat. The end product provides for good party music that ranges from a Japanese "Running Man" show to futuristic space music. After a few listenings I wondered whether or not there was more music of this genre out there. It's somewhat reminiscent of early Devo with primitive synthesisers but more mellow and poppy.
