Arrangers include producer Takeshi Kobayashi. Mastered by George Marino at Sterling Sound (New York).

Description in Japanese

It's a wonderful world / Mr.Children

POPの恐竜Mr.Children、永遠のマスターピースとなるであろう衝撃的傑作POPアルバム完成!! 楽曲の全体像は2ndアルバム「kind of love」を彷彿させる、そして名盤「Atomic Heart」的でもある音楽的なスケール感のある作品に仕上がった。今回久しぶりにコラボレートするエンジニア今井邦彦氏により、繊細でパワフルなミキシングがよりサウンドをビルドアップ。前シングル4曲「優しい歌」「youthful days」「Drawing」「君が好き」を含めた構成で、曲間での繊細な音作り、緩急のついたプロデューサー小林武史のアレンジ、よりパワフルでセクシーさが増したボーカル、全てが最高な状態で表現された素晴らしいアルバム。マスタリングはニューヨークスターリングサウンドのジョージマリノが最高なサウンドをサポート。このアルバムによってより多くの人が音楽の素晴らしさに触れるであろう名盤!!

      The most variety of any Mr.Children album 5

      One of their more experimental albums, the amount of variety, the thought put into the entire album as a whole, and of course the great songs make this my favorite Mr.Children album. It's almost like a concept album starting with an instrumental overture that becomes part of the first song 'Sosei' which then transitions into a kind of theme song for the album appearing again as the last track 'It's a wonderful world'. Anchored by this extended intro and the ending, each song in between seems to show exactly how the world can be wonderful. That doesn't mean each song is all love, peace, and happiness though. Actually the tracks have more variety among them with some dark songs, more rock-oriented songs like the anthem-status 'youthful days', 'Loveはじめました', and 'Yasashii Uta' and of course the ballads. The more-rock oriented songs give the album an energy that seems to be lacking in their later more mature and more ballad-based albums. If you appreciate Mr.Children's song-making talents and genius lyrics but get tired of the common ballad format, then this may be one of your favorites too. Highly recommended to everyone. Required listening for anyone who likes Mr.Children.
