3 stars Kila Kila Kila is the only album i've heard from OOIOO and i was, unfortunately, not that impressed.

Kila Kila Kila is not a bad album by any means, but it could be so much better. First of all, there is a lot of experimentation going on, and it's not very accessible. Melody and musicality takes a backseat to sonic experimentation on most of the tracks. There is a lot of variation, in that no track sounds like the previous one, but the tracks themselves tend to drag on for a bit long in the same musical ideas. There are some very catchy parts, especially on "Siziku ring neng" and "on mani", but the bulk of the album is too cold and experimental for my ears. It almost seems like the band decided to make a really avant-garde album and then write the music inside the frame that they set up, instead of the other way around. Most of the vocal parts seem contrived and could have been skipped as well. One of the most uneven albums that i have got, quality-wise.

So why even give it three stars, you wonder? Well, as i said, there are parts of the album which are extremely catchy, and even if "ene soda" fits like an apple in a bowl of crisps and the title track is an abomination of nature, there is a slight chance that someone with more of an ear towards the avant-garde might enjoy "Kila kila kila" more than i do.

The spirit is there, and i won't be giving up on these girls too soon, but i cannot recommend this album to anyone other than the really adventurous listeners.
