 - 20 Jazz Funk Greats
55
20 Jazz Funk Greats by Throbbing Gristle does not have jazz songs, nor funk songs, nor songs that number in 20, nor songs that are, dare I say, great. What I find 20 Jazz Funk Greats to be is more a collection of 11 songs that gets caught in the middle of trying to be at once accessible and experimental & industrial without really making something interesting. It's too industrial, sparse, and plodding to be danceable or accessible as synth music (with the exception of maybe "Hot on the ... read more
 - 98.12.28 男達の別れ (98.12.28 Otokotachi no Wakare)
100
This album is most likely the most acclaimed live album ever on the internet, exemplified by sites like Reddit, Album of the Year, and most notably Rate Your Music where it's also listed as the 17th best album of all time. Reading things like that makes you a little bit skeptical about how great this live album could truly be. Though part of this skepticism was influenced by my love of LONG SEASON and my unwillingness to let it go as the best Fishmans album, I was skeptical nonetheless.

 - Yurameki In The Air
100
ゆらめき in the Air (Yurameki in the Air) is the final studio work Fishmans released in singer, guitarist, songwriter 佐藤伸治 (Shinji Sato)'s lifetime. It is also one of Fishmans' best songs. "ゆらめき in the Air (Yurameki in the Air)" has a higher emphasis on electronics than previous works, which I imagine is the direction that Fishmans' overall sound would have headed for had they gone on for longer. The only real reason I speculate this is that I want it to be the ... read more
 - 8月の現状 (8 Gatsu no Genjō)
83
8月の現状 (8-gatsu no genjō) is the second Fishmans live album and it's great. Especially the versions of "Walking in the Rhythm" and "Night Cruising" (which is somehow even dreamier and spacier than the studio version). Like Oh! Mountain, a comparison can be made between 8月の現状 (8-gatsu no genjō) and the Kiss live album Alive! in that neither of them are actually very live and had heavy over-dubbing. Also like Oh! Mountain, 8月の現状 (8-gatsu no genjō) is ... read more
 - 宇宙 日本 世田谷 [Uchū Nippon Setagaya]
95
As a surprise to absolutely no one, I think that 宇宙 日本 世田谷 (Uchū Nippon Setagaya), the final album of "The Holy Trilogy", is also an amazing album. It really is the culmination of all of Fishmans' studio efforts (outside of LONG SEASON). All of the great qualities that I've previously applied to Fishmans' album applies to 宇宙 日本 世田谷 (Uchū Nippon Setagaya) and more. I want to say more about this album but I just don't really know what to say. It's great, ... read more
