Review by Mellotron Storm
3 stars The cover is pretty cool with the odd shaped sun (Newsun) shining brightly upon a baby in diapers. The back cover is a picture of the ocean and mountains with again this new differently shaped sun shining down. I wish the music appealed to me as much. Don't get me wrong I do like this record, I was just surprised to hear a combination of Spacerock and Krautrock instead of Rio / Avant. Just about all of the songs blend together on this one.

"Circle" is the longest track by far, too long actually. It takes a couple of minutes to really get a melody as drums lead the way with spoken vocals in the background. We get some percussion as well as a guitar melody 6 minutes in. This is catchy. It has a spacey ending that goes on for some time. "Star" continues briefly with the loud spacey sounds as drums pound away. Spacey synths blow across the soundscape. It sounds like native drumming on "Heart". The space winds have stopped as we now have a good beat. There are these annoying squeeking sounds throughout.

"Spiral" becomes uptempo after 2 minutes in this Spacerock inspired tune. "Tide" continues briefly with the loud synths from the previous song before we get light drums and spacey background sounds. The drums beat faster 2 1/2 minutes in as gentle guitar comes in. "Two Circles" has a catchy beat with spacey sounds and vocals. "Arrow Up" sounds like a CAN inspired song, even the vocals sound like Damo. Some good bass 2 1/2 minutes in. "Omega" has a good rhythm with male and female vocals. 1 1/2 minutes in this is all swallowed up by spacey sounds. "Zutto" has percussion, lighter sounds and electronics as guitar comes in.

If your into spacey music you should really check this out.

Review by Warthur
5 stars Not so much a collection of songs as a sprawling psychedelic stream of consciousness, divided into different movements as the band see fit, the Boredoms' Vision Creation Newsun is a neo-psychedelic freakout par excellence, the band dialling back their noise rock roots without entirely disconnecting from them so that a slight air of dissonance and chaos underlies proceedings. Imagine Can jamming with the Flaming Lips and Acid Mothers Temple in an upbeat celebration of total weird and you may be in the same ballpark. As the multi-instrument hub of the band, this is eYe's finest hour. A true classic of modern Japanese psychedelic music.

5 stars This is by far my favorite Boredoms album, and in actuality is my favorite album all together. As far as style goes, it's a mix of electronica, psychedelia, trance, math rock, noise, and all out madness. Perfect blend of profound discovery and cosmic belly laughing. As far as comparisons go, Id ... (read more)

5 stars Carbonised by the neutral gravity of Diemos and seasoned with a smijin of adult video idol Oikawa Nao's inner thigh sweat and housed in the sweetest box imaginable The Boredoms pull off a master-stroking stroke of genuine genius. That this was realeased at the business end of the 90s and that th ... (read more)
