Description in Japanese

平成風俗 [通常盤] / 椎名林檎×斎藤ネコ

椎名林檎、約4年ぶりのニュー・アルバム!! 全篇にわたりアーティスト椎名林檎とアレンジ&指揮の斎藤ネコとのコラボレーションが実現。斎藤ネコ指揮のもと国内トップ・クラスのプレイヤーが大集合、曲によってはストリングス、ブラス、木管など総勢70人のゴージャスな編成も。巧みにミュージシャンを使い分け、ジャズ、クラシック、ラテンからタンゴ的な要素までサウンド・スタイルも縦横無尽、今の日本のポピュラー音楽シーンに於いては数少ない、非常にエンターテイメント性の高い豊かな音楽が満載。何よりもスケール感のある演奏に一歩も引けを取らない椎名林檎のパフォーマンスは圧巻。映画『さくらん』のエンディング・テーマ「この世の限り」では椎名純平とデュエット。新曲5曲に、カバー曲、既発曲のセルフ・カバーを含む13曲を収録。

    Customer Reviews

    A sort-of soundtrack to the film "Sakuran" 4

    This record starts off with "Gamble," a powerful blast of rock and roll + symphony that is one of my favorite songs ever. If the rest of the record had carried on in that vein, this also would have been one of my favorite albums ever. However, the rest of the CD varies between ambient electronica and jazzy show tunes, with a torch song or two thrown in as well. I'm generally not a fan of electronica, but the tracks on this album are really well done and definitely hold my attention. The jazzier stuff, however, does exactly the opposite -- it ends up sounding cheesy to my ears, almost insincere at times. A good chunk of the record is taken up by these songs, but thankfully are balanced by the quality of the rest of the songs. Not the best Ringo Shiina album I've heard, but it's still pretty good.

    Great album 5

    This album is a masterpiece. Some tracks are covers of her old songs, but the new arrangements are amazing. The track order is very good, the songs follow each other very well. Kono yo no kagiri is a great and dramatical closer. If you like orchestrated music, this album is just for you. Ringo makes great music with Neko Saito and her singing is very unique and emotional.

    Best album in years 5

    I've been a fan of Ringo and her group Tokyo Jihen for years, and she often changes direction and tries new things. With Heisei Fuzoku she has produced by far her bravest, and best work to date. It's eclectic stuff, with electronica, jazz, orchestral, big band, and rock flowing into each other to create an amazing album. This is absolutely essential listening, truly a masterpiece.
