In my opinion, this is Buck-Tick's first 5 star album since 2005's 十三階は月光. While they've never stopped releasing good material, the level of quality has varied over the last decade of BT's career. I'd call the last 10 years of Buck-Tick's discography their Potpourri Period; Mixing and matching styles without maintaining complete tonal consistency. Each album seemed more and more like they were throwing things at the wall to see what would stick, with varying degrees of success.

This latest effort, however, is a completely cohesive whole. Everything about it works together. Sakurai and Imai seem to have taken new inspiration from their recent forays into side projects (Sakurai with The Mortal and Imai with Schaft) and returned to BT with a very clear and fresh vision for how they wanted their new material to sound; A retro-cyberpunk electronic rock tone, high-energy beats without explicitly delving into dance music, with tinges of latin american guitar which (surprisingly) blends in perfectly. The dark alt rock of Darker Than Darkness -Style 93- mixed with the noisy beats of Mona Lisa Overdrive and the quirky electronics of 或いはアナーキー.

A very strong effort that is an absolutely essential entry into the band's catalogue. If you're a fan who maybe lost interest a bit over the last few years, do yourself a favour and give this one a listen. Highlights to check out are "El Dorado", "Devil's Wings", "BOY septem peccata mortalia", "愛の葬列", and "NEW WORLD -beginning-" which improves greatly from the middle-of-the-road single version thanks to a new arrangement.
