Of course, everyone in the western world even slightly interested in Japanese pop culture probably knows Plastic Love by now. The rest of the album is a bit different, having more of a 80s throwback to the 60s vibe - not normally my thing at all, but the songs are all really well written and the whole album just sounds so lushly produced. Thoroughly recommended. If you want a quick taste of the general sound of the other tracks, Night At The Amphitheater ( アンフィシアターの夜) has gotta be my fave here.
