4 stars The madness never stops!

Boredoms may well be the most acclaimed band of the Japanese Noise Rock scene. With their past album, Pop Tatari, they left a footprint in the world that can still be seen today. With Chocolate Synthesizers they try and improve on the same successful formula that Pop Tatari had.

And what's the formula you ask? Well its quite simple. Just add a little punk as base and then throw in everything you can see that can make noise or even a sound. Throw in the guitars, drums, bass, vocals, whistles, kitchen sink, farts, turntable, horns, the trash and even some dirt in it too and what you get is the Boredoms. Of course, all of this couldn't be made possible if it wasn't for Yamatsuka Eye and his mentally unstable team behind it.

The "music" on this album is quite simply one of the craziest collage of sounds ever recorded. The insanity of this album can be compared to the brainchilds of Mike Patton, Mr. Bungle and Fantomas. The only difference here is that its even less structured than Disco Volante or even Suspended Animation (if its even humanly possible), but oddly enough it sounds more accessible than the two albums mentioned if you're used to this sort of music. From the start of the overtly-pompous opener "Acid Police" you know what madness you're getting into. It's pretty clear that you'll be head banging through the whole song. Primal screams, quirky raps, pounding drums and sheer cacophony is what makes this album. It's like an party on acid gone wrong and you're in the middle of it. Themes change quickly in the middle of songs like if all of the members had ADD. One can't help but laugh at this weirdness this guys created specially in "Turntable Boredoms". There are also some wonderful rock moments that keep the music balanced and keeps things interesting. Those parts are the ones that keeps your blood pumping. These rock parts are more dominant on this album compared to Pop Tatari and this makes this album more accessible than it. After this album they'll change their musical direction and focus more on the rhythm section and lose the randomness and quirkiness that defined their early years.

In the end this albums will leave you disorientated on the ground with your clothes torn and with your heart beating like a woodpecker breaking the wood of a tree. It's disjointed, there isn't a sense of songwriting, it lacks direction and just plain weird and I like it! Chocolate Synthesizers was my first Boredoms album and it won my heart over. If you're a fan of the crazy avant-prog of Mike Patton then you'll be drooling over this album. I know I did.

4 stars Ah! My first BOREDOMS album. This has to be the most whacked out and hilarious music i've ever heard. Nothing can prepare you for your first listen to this band. They revel in creating the most cacophonous sonic mess possible. I'm sure many wouldn't even call this music at all. And that would be a very good argument for in fact this IS called noise rock and more recently the term Japanoise has emerged. There is music here alright. There is a punk guitar that is pretty steady on the opening track "Acid Police" which is probably the most structured track on the whole album. After it ends though it is the wild world of sonic chaos. What is absolutely wild about this album is that it takes a major talent to make such unsymmetrical and forced chaos. It is the natural tendency of us humans to gravitate and feel rhythm, melody and harmony. BOREDOMS have mastered the art of melodic mutilations, rhythmic rape and harmonicide in the first degree. Not only do they commit these musical atrocities but they love to take to you on a ride and sometimes complete Krautrock freakouts.

They often start playing some really catchy riffs or bass lines with steady drumming and reel you into a decent groove only to mangle them and butcher them and strangle all life out of what most would call music. They are simply a bunch of little kids on sugar highs bouncing off the walls in any direction that suits their fancy. The result of this madness is actually a lot of fun. They challenge your very conception of what music is and reel you in and then spit in your face. The screams and irregular bombast just leave me laughing hysterically every time I hear this. I mean, geez, it's equivalent to going to the library or something and everybody in the building suddenly going berserk and dancing on the tables and swinging on the chandeliers and making noises like animals. It's just plain crazy! I can imagine many music lovers running away quickly from this psychotic musical episode. I am part of the minority of humanity who actually loves this kind of stuff. I love beautiful melodies and harmonies and "normal" music rest assured, but this kind of bizarre mind-bending music also has a place in my heart for its sheer boldness and ability to take you to places that you never thought existed. Of all the things that come to mind when I hear this, boredom is not one of them.
