4 stars For a long while, we LE SILO freaks had waited for their third studio-based creation (maybe for a decade we had to wait for their newest one) and finally the sunshine day has come to us, with their hard efforts and the independent label Disk Union's great collaboration. Woohoo, what a happiness ... there are lots of their live repertoires in this album, with soft and smart production and arrangement (actually, that cannot be said as my favourite production sorry).

In the first track "Zunda Zunda Tsu", played upon the gig at Rooster North Side upon April 18, 2015 too, the three Le Silers enjoy their funky, multirhythmic play "with the audience". So difficult for the audience to make a handclap rhythm to the song but they always say "Our rhythm should merge with each other", and it might be true lol. Exactly this is to feel unified around the stage I suggest. "Ha-Hi-Ho-Hi-" is one of their repertoires upon stage, that sounds quirkily jazzy with their meaningless, passionate phrase shouting. Sounds quite cool indeed but not simple. Pretty eccentric and full of pleasure as well. "Paro Paro" can be called as one of their gems along with complex multi-polarized rhythm steps, crazy danceable uptempo ballooning, and excellent rigidity under their sound shower. Listen and you will repeat the word Paro Paro with Miyako, I guess. A short acoustic guitar solo (by Yoshiharu) "Snow-capped Land" might be sung as his hot impression when he stumbled upon a snow-filled ground.

"Kenji" ... wonder they sing for whom. A fine, enjoyable track really, that reminds me of somebody familial with them, maybe as a party friend. Surely very pleasant for us to dance to this track under freakout condition yeah. "Hypochondria In May" sounds very suggestive. Suppose they be very enthusiastic but very nervous for music and their life style, and they sometimes suffer from everything around them and create lots of fantastic (and usually mysterious) stuffs. "Numazapa III", always enjoyed upon their gigs, was created and produced by Michiaki aka Mitchie, the drummer / percussionist / singer / iron man. Quite tough, strong, hard edged, and exaggerated, but simultaneously all Le Silers can play / sing the track very hopefully and naturally. Oh, it's exactly their real essence. Superb.

"A Girl Possessed In Kotatsu" ... basically a song of a girl keeping herself warm in a Japanese leg warmer, but not safe and sound. Wonder why not sounds warm but also in this track their attitude for every work and life could be heard. As brilliant musicians and hard workers, and especially Japanese sake reviewers (like me :P), they might consider there is no useless time for them, I'm sure. Sometimes sounds soft and smooth but sometimes sharp and tense. "Breath Of Ice" is a piano solo piece by Miyako, one of fantastic artists and beautiful mademoiselles, where are short but gorgeous piano paragraphs here and there. "Whisky And Soda" is another repertoire of theirs, and notifies us of their incredible enthusiasm for whisky or sake or alcoholic beverage. Oh not forget their symbolic facility of recreation and life, public baths. In "Overture Of Let Me Take You A Public Bath" something unstable or mysterious against an institution that they visit for the first time can be heard, but at the same time we can find they get immersed or addicted in such a mystery. Interesting indeed. The last massive attack "Hevika Shot" sounds like they make a battle against a terrible snake, or they exert a tough tribal texture upon the audience, along with complex rhythms and intriguing music vibes. Another gem of Le Silo, let me call.

Totally this can be called as an excellent album, and let me say this creation could be more fantastic if the remixer clarified their sound more and more explosively upon the mixing of this album, I'm sure. A tad regretful their sharp and strict play sounds slightly softer and dimmer than in the previous two albums. But no suspicion this is a must for us. Thanks to Yoshiharu, Michiaki, and Mademoiselle Miyako for letting us enjoy such a great creation ... and yes, make us crazy forever via your incredible stages.
