On his debut, BOKU MO WAKARAN, Bogdan Raczynski offers 26 untitled tracks of oddities, strangeness and playfulness. "2" has jaunty little melodies to accompany the chugging rhythm, while "3" gets starts the drum'n'bass frenzy. Because of the short run times, one gets the idea that these tracks are mostly fragments rather than fully developed songs, with random samples (mostly from Japanese films) added everywhere, as if to bridge them together. And even though I would have loved to hear hear more of the blip-crazed "6" would have been great or the deep rhythmics of "9" or the mutant electro of "11," I get the sense that chaos is what Raczynski is after, but it also gives the album a jittery, restless energy, as well as a surfeit of sonic ideas. The deep resonance and music box-like tune on "14" show a good sense of tonal contrast, while "18" has the drums making good use of dynamic stereo sound. "19" brings in the blasts of noise, signifying the switch to aggressive drill'n'bass time throughout "22" and into the growls of "25." "26" ends things with a muted trumpet drifting into space. A maddeningly enjoyable album.
