Cornelius' _Sensuous_ starts off with the title track, a simple guitar offset by its own reverberations until it finally decays. Its simplicity belies the rest of the album, a flood of cheeky Japanese pop. Mostly, it's been cut-up and made discontinuous, as in "Fit Song," the printer-inspired and -sampling "Toner," and the more rock-oriented "Gum." But "Breezin'" stays true to its name, a warm, easygoing trip, and "Wataridori" is a cleverly layered guitar exercise. "Omstart" similarly glides along, while "Music" comes as close as anything to pure pop. The album closes on the oscillating lullaby of "Sleep Warm," with an almost romantic vibe. Sensuous, indeed!

The mastering on this album is broken. Each track includes a two-second gap, and it's quite obvious that almost every track is intended to be gapless. I haven't heard the Japanese version of the album, but I assume it's probably mastered properly, unlike this unfortunate waste. I want my money back, EverLoving.

The music itself, however, is great. The usual Cornelius lushness is all intact, and this is probably his best work thus far. However, it still doesn't make up for the poorly-done mastering. Did they even listen to it before they packaged it?
