One of those albums that does something totally original. It is very metal and very pop, but also just mixed in such a wonderfully bizarre way so that you can't really categorize it at all. Like many Boris records, it a bit of an evolution of the records preceding it, yet it is still easily identifiable as Boris. It is one of my favorite rock and roll records ever.

Oh Boris, why are you amazing? I mean honestly, who else can kick ass so relentlessly? Whether they're making doom dirges or guitar freak-out sessions, Boris sound cooler in ten minutes than most bands do over the course of their carrer. Smile has recieved a lot of negative feedback which I can't understand. I'd pick Smile over Pink any day. I own both the Japanese and US vinyl versions of Smile and I think that each has certain cuts that are better than the other, so mixing and matching is a must. Flower Sun Rain is Summer 2008 as music for me. No song more fully epitomizes sunsets, lucy in the sky, and heartbreak like Flower Sun Rain. Michio Kurihara's guitar on the US mix soars like a comet, leaving trails of fire in its wake. BUZZ-IN and Laser Beam bring the energy early on, but things slow down for the surf rock meets DMT, acid explosion that is My Neighbor Satan. And just so you know they're still as heavy as anyone, Boris team up with Stephen O'Malley for a black-hole jam which drones on for 20 minutes.
