Let's start by saying - this album is utterly amazing. To some, it would appear as badly recorded noise, almost unlistenable even. However to others, it is some of the most beautiful music ever made by human hands. Takashi Mizutani is a legend. I never knew such sounds could be coaxed out of an electric guitar. Yet, Les Rallizes Denudes are so off the radar of the average person (I almost feel I'm whistle-blowing by even posting an Amazon review) that I have never even seen Mizutani mentioned in any Lists of so-called top guitar players or Rallizes mentioned in the UK music press. (If I am wrong on that, I will stand corrected) And I guess that's the way most Rallizes fans really want it to stay. The last thing we want is someone like Fearne Cotton breathlessly telling her listeners about an "amazing Japanese band" she's just discovered. Five out of the six tracks are (to my ears) from the legendary "Le 12 Mars 1977 a Tachikawa" album, but IN MUCH IMPROVED SOUND on "Heavier". This really is music to separate the men from the boys. It is musical Marmite - you will either love it and want more and more, or you will simply hate it. End of.
