Otoboke Beaver didn't need to go this hard!

The 405

Itekoma Hits, the band’s first full-length LP, and by far most visible release to date, has no time for your bullshit, and zero time to waste. Clocking in at just 26 minutes and 36 seconds, the album makes use of every second of time afforded.

AllMusic

Itekoma Hits doesn't leave listeners a moment to catch their breath -- or grow bored. Arriving a decade after Otoboke Beaver formed, it suggests they're becoming bolder and more surprising with time.

The replay value is on steroids. I think I've made my mind up on the 2019 AOTY at this rate. Fuck The Comet Is Coming bro. This is the real ... read more

What's with Fantano and automatically giving noise rock albums a high rating? Not that I'm complaining, I wouldn't have even found this if it wasn't for his review.

Well, I had no idea what was even happening for the entire duration of this. I understood about 0% of what was being said. All I understood was that I was being screamed at in Japanese and I think at one point I was told to go to hell?

Itekoma Hits is mostly just a fun, hardcore-punk noise rock album. I didn't even know I wanted ... read more
