4 stars What happened? Why did Mako play definite rock and roll music?

If you have already listened to his first and second albums, I suggest you'll wonder why. You strictly mentioned, this album is not as experimental as the previous ones. Consider we can explain this project as Magical Rocker Mako and his friends. How do you think? :-)

Without any complaints listen to it, believe me. From the first track Jump To You you will be driven rollin'. This type of sound is what Mako has not shot previously and in my humble opinion he might want to play seriously rock-oriented music. His support members, especially Shoji Watanabe and Keiichi Nishina, could get so massively active and let Mako's identity be exploded positively. Even an experimentally percussive stuff The Story Of Our Master is not only percussive but has heavy bass and rigid drum sounds in its latter half. And exactly Give Me Present! Pleasant and funky rhythm and sound thanks for your present, Mako! :-) A streamingly quiet song Rest Light Down, and So with wonderful linger...A-side of this work is chill!

Elephant's Jungle is the only experimental and avantgarde song in this album I think. Each instrument play a cry of an animal and the whole sound can hear as the atmosphere in the jungle. The masterpiece is Jump, the real rock and roll. 'Tsuki Wa Oboro Ni Kasokeki Yo' can I explain the paragraph? It's very difficult for me to show a Japanese mind. Fuzzy moon has got to be dimmer and dimmer...sorry. Anyway, loud guitar, funky voice and fantastic percussions can make us crazy. Dance and sing! Mako showed this style only here. Interesting one.

I'm sure this is a great rock album by Mako's project. Highly recommended.
