ミドリ [Midori] - セカンド♥ (Second♥)
86
Combining the aggressive and abrasive punk sound with the more groovy yet chaotic jazz fusion creates an album that is just extremely fun and energizing to listen to. And it doesn't hurt that nearly every song is somehow super catchy despite how noisy and chaotic it is. The band has also managed to make it's own unique sound, with Mariko Goto's distinctive vocals and Hajime on the keyboard being large standouts to me.

The biggest problem with this album is definitely it's poor mixing, which ... read more

World's End Girlfriend - Hurtbreak Wonderland
94
Maybe I just haven't listened to enough music, but I have never heard anything quite like this album. The imagery it provides is so vivid and distinct yet also so unique to myself and reliant on my own imagination. The varied instrumentation and styles definitely help with this effect, meshing together elements of rock, classical, jazz, and even electronic music. The only problem I have with this album is that sometimes it can get a bit too "experimental" and lose itself for a moment. ... read more
夢中夢 [Mutyumu] - イリヤ -Il y a-

This album is both incredibly beautiful and slightly horrifying.

MASS OF THE FERMENTING DREGS - World Is Yours
95
When I think of J-Rock this is the type of sound that I think of, and this album has nearly perfected that sound. While the guitars and drums are loud and relentless, the songs are still incredibly catchy and fun to listen to. And with a short 22 minute run time there is no room for filler.
椎名林檎 [Sheena Ringo] - 三文ゴシップ [Sanmon Gossip]
84
Sanmon Gossip is one of the most fun albums I've listened to in a long time. Despite not being as impressive as some of her earlier works, it still manages to be just as enjoyable for me. This album is a fantastic ride full of ideas, however this does cause some of the longer tracks to drag a bit since it relies on its ever changing sound to keep the listener engaged. This only happens a couple times though and overall this is a project I've come back to listen to all the way through several ... read more
