||Nivraym CD (2001) |
Kengo Sakamoto albums If any group of people is going to outdo crazed progressive rock, it would be the Japanese. And Koenjihyakkei, one project of Ruins member Tatsuya Yoshida, absolutely fits that bill. Their third album, NIVRAYM, and their first with replacement vocalist Nami Sagara, is a tossed salad of crazed but structured compositions featuring thrilling polyrhythms and acidic funhouse keyboards. It's a day-glo version of a 1970s lunatic fringe that only existed in a cartoon world of semi-made-up language and kaleidoscopic repetition. The meltdown synths and vocal harmonies of "Axall Hasck" and the tumbling drumbeats of "Becttem Pollt" are only the tip of the iceberg.
