The Curiosity Award is going to Japan this month. What art drummer Tatsuya Yoshida delivers on his latest work is one of the most insane productions of the still young year. Has the avant-garde fan, who thinks he has already heard everything, ever taken advantage of Zeuhl-Punk? There is no room for big explanations, but if you like hypercreative/hyperactive Japanese (and French) with absolute devotion to music, you should pay attention here. Kobaïan, the artificial language invented especially for this genre, is included free of charge. "The music of all-encompassing power" is simply not made for words. It is something like Free Jazz with rhythms almost incomprehensible to mortals. Tatsuya Yhoshida is responsible for bass, vocals, guitar, keyboards and drums. "Alone" sounds as if it has compressed all the musical styles of the world to 53 minutes and shaken them well. Pretty sick. You'll be amazed. The Prog-/Hardrock-Medley at the end really breaks all boundaries.
