Great album and fantastic pressing! I do not understand how other labels can get away with charging $25-30 for an LP when Fat Possum is dropping stuff of this quality and charging $17.

Such a transformation! This album is warm, folksy and nostalgic. Very reminiscent to the soft/yacht rock groups of the 70s (I would even go as far as to say that this sounds like city pop). In Sakamoto’s previous band, Yura Yura Teikoku, the music was much more harsh and high energy. This album sounds the opposite and it’s definitely worth your time if you’re a fan of any of the genres I just mentioned. I like to listen to this album right before I go to bed. It’s really that relaxing!
