4 stars From nursery rhimes to odd signatures and an excellent second track in 5/4, this "crazy" japanese band is first of all a funny listening. Even the most "anvant-like" songs are very light. I don't understand the lyrics but the positive energy that the band transimts to the listener tigether with the strange metric of thel lyrics make it very enjoyable.

Then you can find the surprise of a melodic piano piece like "Ao-Tenjo" which is tender and soft. The use of silences in the second half of the track is intriguing. Very nice. Effectively the piano plays an important role on almost all the tracks which have a length between 4 and 6 minutes, apart of the 2 minutes opener.

As I have written, the whole album is highly enjoyable, but the melodic songs have more appeal, at least on me. Out of the melodic side, the drumming on "Since 1970" is remarkable. This is another kunky track with a signature that I struggle to identify:.

In the complex, it's a very good album. The lyrics in Japanese can sound weird to somebody, but if you don't mind about a language you are not familiar with (I think progheads never mind about little things like this), you'll enjoy as much as I.
