A very good example of what Shibuya is (think Dimitri From Paris, Towa Tei (Deee-Lite), Pizzicato Five...) A lot of great samples taken from various sources and styles - none of them are credited however. A naive, simple approach, full of humor (for example, 'Mpf (Mezzo Pianoforte)' sounds like the music from an episode of 'Charlie Brown' where Snoopy dances hysterically on Shroeder's piano), but also very moving ('Mr. Fantasy’s Love' sounds inspired by the work of Jean-Jacques Perrey - think 'Indicatif Spatial' for example - and ends with a gorgeous section of strings). It's also a very 'international' album with the use of English, French, German and Japanese. 'Electric Lady Land' is quite a number (watch the video if you're not entirely convinced). The attempt of reloading Easy Listening for the 21st century works as well as on the first album. "Luxury' offers a great musical landscape for dreamers, lovers and nostalgic people.

<I>Luxury</I>, the second full outing from the Fantastic Plastic Machine, continues the vibe that was established on his eponymous debut. The loungified cover falls this time to The Eurhythmics’ “There Must Be An Angel (Playing With My Heart),” and sure enough, it’s angelic (if a little too long). “Honolulu, Calcutta” is in-flight entertainment at its best, while “Bossa for Jackie” is quiet and sweet. “You Must Learn All Night Long” goes in an entirely different direction and throttles us with a percussion workout. Again, there are some weaker tracks (“I’ve Forgotten My Fagotto”), but the simple sunny fun of this album easily outshines them.
