4 stars Shouts in our mind that we do hope to get stability or something even in an unstable condition ... cannot avoid feeling such a phenomenon by four talented artists via this album "Leap Second Neutral".

Complex and powerful drumming by Toshiaki, deep and heavy bass moonquake by Hiroyuki, and sharp-edged keyboard kicking by Noriya, might tell their "strict inconstancy" terrifically filled with sensation of speed. As if we would stand upon a fragile plate ice, we should always have gotten scared of their uptempo instability, but it's not true actually. Listen to the first track "M-B" and you can feel that these four superb "sound magicians" could get quite stabilized and harmonized like a clear, square crystal upon such a complex poly-rhythm structure. Their powerful loudness cannot be forgotten always, while delightful, funky, fancy grooves in "Neutral" go through our brain massively.

On the other hand, here is another fluctuation like "Stum" (as the title ... immature wine ... says) with risky state of sounds downstream eternally. The sound structure of "Solid Box" should be solid indeed but Mahi-mahi's flexible saxophone can make this track more fluid and more liquid than we expected. Even into short tracks like "Monaco" their intensive complexity and eccentricity should be squeezed fully. We can enjoy their sounds of dizzying speed and various appearances in their principal theme "strict inconstancy", like long-matured whisky or wine. Splendid theatre.
