    Am i the only one who finds those effected voices (quite) unbearable?

    I've had this album for years now and always wanted to like it.
    So i've been coming back to it from time to time. To give it another chance.

    But every single time i put it on the player i just can't get over those effected voices and enjoy the music.
    They probably fit the spirit of the album, but still…
    This time i'm gonna definitively give up and put it on sell. Sad story.

      I admit, "Hana," the first track on Asa-Chang & Junray's album JUN RAY SONG CHANG, blows me away. Against a backdrop of cinematic strings comes a Japanese spoken word piece, both male and female, regular and distorted, perfectly accompanied with a tabla. As the voices speed up, so do the strings. Beautifully bizarre. The rest of the album doesn't quite live up to the promise in "Hana," though, though the circus-on-acid "Preach" and the freaky festival of "Goo-Gung-Gung." Much of the album seems to be examining the textures of the Japanese language itself, stretching it and cutting it up, with some tracks more successful than others. "Kobana" simply seems to be a restatement of "Hana," with a harmonica instead of strings, but "Jippun" speeds us through a swirling landscape, with bits of shakuhachi floating on the surface, finally puncturing the surface with a scat-like vocal. "Kokoni Sachiari" is all organized clutter, with heavy metal feedback and folksy plucking all in the same track. What a way to take Japan into the future!
