The fact that 'Asobi Seksu' translates literally into 'playful sex' should give you a small insight into what you're likely to be getting from this album. Where the first album might have seemed a little too brash in places, nearly everything about 'Citrus' is so accomplished, refined, and downright transcendent that it could very well stand alongside Loveless as a modernized shoegaze staple, bringing exactly the right amount of noise, swirling affects, and sound balance to a record simply drenched in dreamy layers of guitar noise and static. Somehow, Asobi manage to map the uncharted territory where My Bloody Valentine and The Smiths might meet for drinks, whilst maintaining their sugary pop sensibilities. Singer Yuki's breathy sweet nothings in Japanese lie atop guitars and keys that pulse, ebb and build to climaxes that would wear Mogwai out. "It's never felt like this", she croons on 'Walk On The Moon'. And she's not wrong.

Possibly the fact that 'Asobi Seksu' translates to 'playful sex' should give you a hint as to what you're getting from this album...bringing together just the right amount of noise, swirling effects and sound balance, 'Citrus' is a heady rush of acomplished airiness, yet with a devastating edge of guitar noise and static. This album sits in the never before conquered realm where My Bloody Valentine and Sonic Youth might meet for drinks. Singer Yuki's breathy sweet nothings in Japanese lie atop guitars and keys that pulse, ebb and build to climaxes that would wear Mogwai out. "It's never felt like this", she croons on single 'Walk On The Moon'. And she's not wrong.

This album sees Asobi Seksu combine the very best of Lush, My Bloody Valentine and Mahagony into a gorgeous twirl of sonic landscapes that literally brings a smile to my face whenever I hear it. The first album is good, if a little darker and grounded perhaps. Citrus is take-off and soaring flight through bright skies and manic thunderstorms, before gently dropping you to the ground again. Playful melodies, walls of distortion, etherial girl vocals, warm boy vocals, pulsating beats and chilled out bliss, at one time or another this album has it all, most likely all at the same time :)

I really like Asobi Seksu, and I like this album a lot. I have listened to it over and again, and it is brill. My particular favourite is Nefi + Girly.

Firmly in the shoegaze/dreampop arena, this is a wonderful album full of swirling layered guitars, bass chords and breathy dreamy vocals very reminiscent of My Bloody Valentine's Loveless in places or early Lush but crossed with a more jangly tuneful indie sound. Standout tracks for me are 'New Years' - a thumping JAMC back beat, distorted bass and chorus which just sends shivers up my spine, 'Thursday' which crescendos beautifully and 'Lions and Tigers' with a blissful multi-layered guitar and bass chorus. 'Strings' is a little odd in that it completely changes half way through which makes it sound like a part I and II. 'Pink Cloud Tracing Paper' is a blatant MBV rip off but none the worse for it. 'Red Sea' is more reminscent of Ride circa 'Today/Forever', with its long drawn out swirling guitar fade out. 'Goodbye' and 'Mizu Asobi' are more indie pop, 'Nefi + Girly' probably closest to their trademark sound and 'All Through the Day' is more dreampop. If you like shoegaze and dreampop, you will love this as it is so fresh and enjoyable.
