Casino vs. Japan`s first full-length is addictive. I want to listen to it more and more without being able to explain myself what is so addictive about it. Yes, the music layers sound hazy, it has looped melodies with crunchy, distorted rhythms, but I don`t know what creates that euphoric experience. It is sheer beauty from beginning to end, different from later albums of Mr. Kowalski, hypnotic and evocative. These sounds are enveloping and stay in mind long after listening. Unforgettable and really cool. I wish the album was more accessible to listeners than now.

As much as I love pretty much everything Mr. Kowalski has done, this record holds a very special place in my memory banks. Usually I see everyone talking about WNPTB or Go Hawaii (both of which are stellar records!) but sadly I think the self-titled goes overlooked alot of the time. There isn't a whole lot here that sounds like what came after it, but instead it's more of an ambient record. Four big suites made up of several tracks each, all of which thread together in a blue drugged haze, visiting territories more in common with artists like Gas or even some of Eno's work on Apollo (if it were tuned-into via a broken radio signal coated in reverbs). There's even some pretty straightforward guitar playing on this record, which is a great thing as the guitar sounds are warped and covered in bright chorus usually. Add to this alot of really beautiful loops and that warm crusty tape-production-sound that Kowalski has pioneered and perfected, and the whole thing just works out to be a really pleasant trip through some subterranean multidimensional art gallery. Plus there is a really evocative photo of a bluish bedroom under the disc tray, and that alone is enough to hint at what you're getting from the music...Absolutely perfect in every way!
