5.0 out of 5 stars Don't have it? I feel bad for you. 15 Aug 2004
By mooooonshine - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
One of the most under-heard albums in today's music...

Great from start to finish...

Chillin' beats and soothing ambient...

Not cliche, but suprisingly accessible...

These relate to Go Hawaii. If you like electronic music such as Amon Tobin, Boards of Canada, Autechre, or Aphex Twin, then you should give this album a try. I love it and still replay it every day, since my purchase a month ago. You should be able to enjoy this album on the first listen, because it's THAT good.

5.0 out of 5 stars You Ready? 16 Mar 2006
By Soul4Sail - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
C vs J... where to begin? I'll try my hardest not to become to personally biased with this artist as difficult as it may be. The first time I heard Whole Numbers I thought I finally found the answer. The answer to the perfect formula of abstract trip hop, ambience, intel, and signature by one single artist. I had no idea what was in store for me with his following and past releases, I could only compare it to a tech finding the end of the internet, a diver discovering the white whale or perhaps a ghost being put to rest in peace. It's not just this album in particular but all his works that deserve applause, but only should be heard by a public consisting of substance and is appreciative of musical detail and it's design. I can't help but think of the Never Ending Story in the book store, yeah I was once that little kid, thought I had read everything. Obviously you've been either told or stumbled across this album and by reading this please don't look at this as a reveiw or recommendation, look at this as a bloody demand...BUY THIS ALBUM! In close every style of music potentially has a time and place, Casino versus Japan is in a place of his own, Milwaukee (jokes, kind of). Now that wasn't very personal was it?

4.0 out of 5 stars Ketchup on Spaghetti? You are indeed insane. 20 Oct 2003
By Tim - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Okie dokie this album just kicks out the chill laid back groove that your dad was looking for. Think of the boards of canada with a bit more body, and length. The atmospheres and auralscapes that are built up and torn down in the album are beautiful. lazy lulling drones and off chords work together perfectly to create a certain mood, a vibe of just PURE AWESOME.

4.0 out of 5 stars Soothing Electronica 18 Dec 2013
By Hunyadi - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Casino Versus Japan is a unique intelligent dance music form of electronica. I enjoy the ambient noises and thick textured harmonies layered throughout the songs. This is well written and well thought out music. “Local Forecast” is by far my favorite tune from this album
5.0 out of 5 stars Reinvention of a genre, amazing textures, brilliant. 28 Jun 2006
By Alexander C. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Evoking far away lands and a minor key sadness, CvsJ's Go Hawaii has to be considered an excellent piece of electronic texture music; at once blissful, a bit distant and a tad sad.

The closest comparisons will be Boards of Canada, but this is easily more accesible, with better hooks and thicker beats. Although BOC have their place, CvsJ consistently constructs a lush and moody texture that slowly washes over you on every track. With no break beats in sight, Erik Kowalski offsets his gorgeous synth haze with simple and effective meoldies. The effect of these mostly mid-paced tunes is serene and wistful.

Over Island, Metrobolt and Late for School are stand out tracks indicative of the type of music present on the album; but the key to the overall reward of Go Hawaii is the consistency (typically lacking on many electronic music albums) and inventiveness.

CvsJ doesn't overdo it, keeps the editing tight without overselling the tracks (no 10 minute yawners), and infuses every song with a crunchy distortion that adds just the right amount of thickness throughout.
