NICHIYOBI starts of with the fast, crisp breaks of "Gacha Gacha," and it maintains the pace throughout. Even the woozy start of "Bell Bottom Beats" gives way to a rhythm overload. "Tea For One" does slow things down, and "Get the Controller" blips into pleasant chiptune silliness. But "Monster Mushroom" brings back the big beats, but, as evidenced by "Do Not Disturb", "Funky Bugyo," and "On-Pu," Himuro isn't above playing around with perky little melodies either (or, for that matter, mad jazz, as on "Used Music"). The sonic streaks of "Open/Close" liven up the heavy bass there, and he alternates a gentle guitar strum with mad rhythms on "Full Blast." This kitchen-sink approach to sound doesn't always work, however, especially when the aggressiveness overwhelms everything, but in small doses, it's not too bad.
