Review by Kazuhiro
3 stars The situation of Prog Rock of Japan in the 90's agreed at time when the stage with a new market was requested with the diversification. In the music character of Prog Rock of Japan that had absorbed various music in the 70's, the part where music that followed legitimate when thinking compared it had occupied the market was a main current. However, Prog Rock of Japan that had derived in the 90's was time when a lot of bands that temporarily showed the directionality of the avant-garde had been exhausted.

The band in Japan had the situation that advanced to foreign countries at this time and was known at the same time. The barrel band will have been a band that centered on Boredoms and Koenjihyakkei. The band in active Japan might also have been receiving a lot of high appraisals in foreign countries in the 70's and of course the 80's. However, the market of Prog Rock of Japan of this time was time when a very original system had derived.

In the situation, the formation of this band gave the impression that presented the aspect of the mutation and appeared. The member of the band was almost acting as an amateur at time when this band was formed as a point that had to make a special mention. However, the power has succeeded in the production of an original music character as the flavor of the band.

Mike Patton that evaluated the music character of this band described this band before as the attraction. After the activity of one year, eX-Girl formed in September, 1997 announces the debut album. And, the point that this debut album was announced as a point that should make a special mention in June, 1998. And, "Gong" and competing are accomplished in the major city in Japan in August, 1998. There might have been a fate in this band. Of course, this debut album is announced from the formation in only one year. Therefore, it is not a translation to be offering a complete technology. However, a familiar, deep existence of "Hoppy Kamiyama" and the fusion of this band have succeeded in the band that is called Pink and Daimonji known well in Japan in attempting the differentiation surely with other avant-gardes' bands.

If the debut album of this eX-Girl is considered overall, original Rock where avant-garde's flavor is included is developed. And, amateur's flavor is included a little and it is also true that their colors are expressed as individuality including the flavor. There is competing of Gong and Magma in the history of their activities. And, there might have been one charm and evaluation as a result if the part where live in foreign countries had been always dared after it debuted was considered.

"Diva" develops Rock with the sense of relief while adding flavors of a few Funk. Melody powerfully sung. Progress of Chord of heavy rhythm and peculiar guitar. And, it is partial of the chorus whom they do in all members. The avant-garde exists together to Heavy Rock.

In "Upsy Daisy Ramsy", a heavy rhythm and an acute angle song are features. Sound of metallic decoration. Sound of guitar that gives processing of effect. As for the tune, the tempo will double before long. Part of original chorus who gets on the flow. The flavor of a few psychedelic and avant-gardes has gone out well.

As for "Gyu-Nyu", an enchantment voice twines round Riff of Bass with the guitar that gradually collapses harmony. Groping and the challenge of their experimental parts might be included. After excluding the rhythm and continuing the part of sedition, the tune rushes into the world of a complete tohubohu.

"La Perla" is a tune with which the composition of the tune develops one after another. Line of sound of decoration and heavy Bass. Expression of feelings lyrics to get on avant-garde part. Especially, the progress of Chord that makes the guitar a center has a complete anacatesthesia. The melody and the composition without harmony so much might have the part of the boundary as structure of the tune. It is conversion of an intermittent tempo and a tune that gives the impression in a straight line as much as possible.

"Sex Machine" is a tune in which the work of Hoppy Kamiyama is very reflected. The arrangement of the avant-garde whom they do while leaving the melody of the tune of famous James Brown twines.

"Ghost" is Intro of the sound effect and a part of the voice. The sound in which the effect is made good use of comes in succession. It progresses while piling up the sound with diversity. Very enchantment development is given. It is likely to have aimed at development to imagine the name of a song. The part of the narration and the repeated simple sound might be one of the experiments of them. The tune suddenly moves to the following development. The part of sedition and the part where a bright chorus is alternately repeated give width to the composition of the tune.

"Chin Chiku Linn" is a part of Rock that develops intensely. Coming in succession of voice. It goes one after another in the sound in which various effects are given to the rhythm intermittently repeated repeatedly.

"Planet F" goes out ahead by the chorus and advances chaotically. There is a little this tune experimental part. The chorus gives original development.

"Space Prot" develops completely straight Rock. As for the part of the avant-garde whom Japan regards, a little original music character might be included. Part of song constructed with chorus. Straight Rock is constructed compared it.

The chorus of "Deutsche B" who is reminiscent of the music of Arab is impressive. Chord of the guitar to get on a steady rhythm produces a complete anacatesthesia. There might overall be a flavor of Post Rock. The repeated melody and chorus's effect give the gaga part.

There might already have been an established a little music character in the debut albums of them who had been formed as an amateur. Of course, the work of Hoppy Kamiyama also backed up their music characters. And, their activities were evaluated at once in foreign countries. If this respect was considered, this band might already have had the fate. It might be not easy to listen to a complete technology and directionality when thinking as a debut album. However, there might already have been individuality and existence.
