Here we have Ringo-san's unique take on Rock music combining with four other very talented musicians. The result is a fascinating and well-crafted album that holds up very well after repeated listening. A variety of musical styles can be heard within the compositions, especially Jazz, which makes for a fascinating mixture of songs. And Ringo-san has the perfect rock and roll voice - Strong, in-tune and on-key, yet not too soft or fragile to belt out the hard rock. There's a few songs that are a little too odd to enjoy over and over again, like "Service." But overall the album is solid, even though it may take first time listeners a while to get a sense of what Tokyo Jihen is all about. Alas, the songs are so addictive, the more you listen, the more you like.
