At first I got the feeling "someone is laughing at me" the experimental use of otherwise dismissed instruments combined with endless almost anonimous layered vocal poetry; distorted ambient but not dark by tone. Almost psychotic light/airy elements are used, screaming tragedy unfolds.. great potential.
The more conventional track "River" was dissapointing to say the least, maybe if my japanese was better the lyrics would explain the why question. I'd like more "Shore of night" with the simple baseline to follow the tale. The episode were Ross plays his synth on Friends. Yes!
I'd love to hate it but I can't stop trying to figure it out..
