From the mellow intro to some of those choruses that are high up there so far you just float away* this is a superb album. I've seen people dancing around through Sunday brunch to this, not bad after a good night before. This is the one that really caught on. Bridge was played to this album more times than I care to say. Don't think it helped the bidding. But could anything have?
Catchy? Oh, hell yes. The volume keeps getting turned up. The piano, the piano! Some of it even reminiscent of Mayumi Kojima. (We'll post a page about her at some point too.)
More great art in another fold out twelve times the size of the inlay. How odd is it? I'll add some scans at some (much) later point and you can wonder what it all means too.
* WARNING: Listening to the chorus of track #3 may cause gaze to wander away from work, kettle to boil unnoticed, craving to check out flights to Japan, vague feelings of emptiness and fulfillment at one and the same time.
ACTIONS TO TAKE: Look down. Despite height of chorus floating above simple guitar riff, ground may be found under one's feet. If necessary, touch ground to persuade self of substantiality.
