4 stars Quite suitable to call them kinda multirhythmic art. UNBELTIPO, one of offshoots of TIPOGRAPHICA, have been founded mainly by an ex-Tipo guitarist Tsuneo IMAHORI for incarnation of his musical conception and inspiration. He's recruited a splendidly talented rhythm section Mitsuru NASUNO (bass) and Yasuo SANO (drums), each of whom had experienced enough in Japanese underground rock scene. I've met Mitsuru several times in some venues and felt he's a gentleman with frank appearance but on the contrary his bass play on stage is incredibly impressive, intensive, and innovative. Just as upon stage, they play such a complicated rhythmic world so perfectly and (sounds) pleasantly.

From the very beginning an improvisation-like persistent phrase is launched through their brilliant instruments and powerful inner mind. Magnificent impression and psychic addiction are certificated for the audience. Such a mystic enthusiasm could be heard obviously via Tsuneo's paranoiac invasion created with soundscape of the perfect trio. Ethnic essence, metallic bullets, metaphoric acoustic shots, or avantgarde funky chops ... each of them is complexly merged, crossed, and interplayed with other. And the rhythm section strictly support his superb guitar play (and sometimes get excessively superior to his lol). Although no cool speciality nor apparent originality can be heard, their musical unification and combo regulation is awesome really.

Another tough point is that their creation should be too complex for the audience to dance or headbang together yeah!
