this cd is GREAT, the new line-up for the band was totally in synch, and it sound perfectly harmonious. lot more 'jazzy' than the 1st cd, with some interesting melodies and catchy tunes.

This was an awsome album, I cant get enough of it. Shiina Ringo, lovely voice as always and the music is sharp but relaxing, kinda make ya feel like your in a warm club or soemthing with a fine drink. the title fits the sound. 'adult', wonderful. And maybe its just me but the inside of the box this special package come in is scented with something. nice touch. highly recomend this.
Although I'm not that satisfied with the album, it's still worth my money. I like the songs "kenka joutou", "himitsu", "shuraba"' and "tegami". The "himitsu" LIVE that came with the DVD is simply stunning too. That is what made me love the song so much. All in all, Shiina Ringo (tokyo jihen) had came out with more great music again!
This album was an odd journey for me. I ordered it having never head the music of Tokyo Jihen nor Ringo Shiina. I knew their "Shuraba" EP sold well, so I was curious. Plus, I'm a sucker for Limited Releases. At first listen, it struck me mainly as a quirky mix of Pop, Jazz, Fusion and Alternative styles. It was so odd, I listened again... and again. And still, each time I hear the music from this album, I like it more and more. Once I finally got around to watching the live performance on the DVD, I was totally hooked! Now, I can't get enough of this odd, quirky band. The songs are well written and the musicians are great. Ringo's voice is a perfect fit for the uniqueness of the tunes, no matter what genre that particular song falls into. It's all just plain fun and a joy to listen to. Perhaps this CD is not for everyone, but judging from personal experience as well as the fan base Tokyo Jihen has acquired already, if you give it a chance, I think you'll really like it.
Shiina Ringo has surfaced with yet another superb album. Creativity and uniqueness still prevails in her latest offering with her band, Tokyo Incidents. Music that defies mainstream commercialism, that is what I like about her style. I have to agree one point with Bryan though, and that is the cologne. Like him, I thought it'll be one full bottle of chemically-induced nice smelling liquid. I'm still sceptical about the way it's packaged, especially confusing for overseas buyers like us. Overall, no complaints. Worth a try, but buy the regular edition will do.
