4 stars The situation in the 90's was really time when a certain kind of various music was digested, extended, and was saturated for Prog Rock Scene of Japan. It is limited to obtain the right that Prog Rock of Japan, music from foreign countries influences, and Prog Rock comes into the market now. Especially, to obtain the citizenship of music, musicians of independent production still take an active part very much. However, it did not limit it to Japan to say nothing of the musician who did the effort to expand the place of the activity there.

Work to dismantle the music of the tradition that exists originally in the market of Prog Rock of Japan and the culture and to restructure is really serious. However, Prog Rock after techno and Punk Rock are passed in the music of Japan after the 80's has rapidly really changed the appearance. Prog Rock of Japan that absorbed the element of various music will have the flow that distributes the power to keep to the outside with the state of saturation when rushing into in the 90's.

Some bands that digest various elements and do them experimentally exist, too and they are accompanied by a minority listener and there is an expanded fact though a lot of bands that establish some genre exist in Japan. The genre that is called "Mixture Rock" as a word of the genre that exists only in Japan exists. This word is a word used well in Japan. That is, various elements are combined, they are calculated, and it is intentional. Or, it is guessed that it is a flow of the music experimentally done. It is not a translation that the word applies to all of course. And, it is guessed that this boredoms has not gotten on those main currents now either.

The use of various music and the sounds can be felt if it listens to the flow as music at which they aim. There was a work that gave some chaotic impressions for their initial works, too. And, the aspect of each work was presented and the "Super Roots" series that was able to be called their lifeworks was offered to the listener.

The some kind of force always existed in the music character at which they were aiming after Yamathuka Eye of the person at the center of the band had formed Boredoms. The "Super Roots" series also that is the stage of their experiments gradually increases the perfection in parallel with the activity of the band. They change the flow little by little. Or, after the band is formed, the music boldly calculated is gradually acknowledged to a listener in Japan and an overseas listener. The flow has changed from a chaotic impression initial of them to the conviction. It is "7" or this album of "Super Roots" that forms the music character of Boredoms in recent years. mightThe opinion of the listener in Japan is numerous the fan that loves work at some initial works or these time. The element of techno shown by "Super Roots 7" and minimal music might pair with this album.

They are a bold calculations and various music in the music that they achieved with this album. Or, the unreal world is formed. It might be difficult to specify the genre. It is an experimental part in this. Or, techno. Minimal. Hardcore. The element of Zeuhl is blocked enough. However, they exist a loose impression is never given but enough in the album as one space. The impression with power such as Can and This Heat is expressed and they are expressing an original interpretation of Japan having it. Musical, of be expressed in the drifting space a kind of dash feeling might capture the listener enough. Boredoms might be a band in the field of Avant-Prog of Japan that exists very much at the position of the exception of course now.
