4 stars This album was my first experience of Japanese math-rock ever. And I was really impressed.

First of all, I was almost blown by the guitar/drums/noises attack - fast, energetic, cold and almost aggressive - there are my first impressions of this album. Excellent musicianship technique, nervous industrial sound, chaotic noises included in difficult musical structure.

Can you imagine The Mars Volta fastest and heaviest pieces played without psychedelic influences, but with cold calculated and perfectly organized extase? Then you can more or less understand, what this album is about.

After three first songs the tension decreased, sound became much more acoustic and melodic, but compositions still stayed complex. Longest album's composition " I Want to Live in All the Remaining Lives With You " has catchy ,in fact pop-song's, melody, but extremely complex and unusual drumming, changing this music to something very different.

Quite unusual, specific and interesting work. Could be interesting for wider circle of listeners, not math-rock fans only.
