6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By The Wolf TOP 100 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 17 Jan. 2011
Format: Audio CD
Shugo Tokumaru is a Japanese singer/songwriter.
His new album 'Port Entropy' is a riot of fragile
mayhem, mystery and highly infectious silliness.
(There are other enchantments to be gathered on
his 2006 recording L.S.T. so don't just stop with
this one). There are twelve tracks in the collection
all of which project an unaffectedly naive ambience.
It is as though Mr Tokumaru has taken time to go
up into the attic to reconnect with the contents
of his childhood toybox. Memory and melancholy
combine in material of quirky complexity and charm.

Crikey! This gentleman has command of a huge array of
musical instruments and they all fall into place in the
most inventive ways to serve his idiosyncratic vision.
Many of the tunes are really pretty and nothing wrong
with that but 'Rum Hee' has both power and passion.
The ebullient percussion reminds me somewhat of Samuli
Kosminen's exemplary contribution to Jonsi's 2010
album 'Go'. A ritual dance for man and beast alike.

The dynamic twists and turns of 'Laminate', with its
chiming chords and luminous vocal harmonies creates a
kind of unforced warmth rare in these high-tech times.

'Straw' kicks-off like a village hall hoedown but the
fractured stop/start rhythm never quite settles down
into the four-square pattern required by the genre.
Mad as a box of frogs with a broken lid and just as slippery.

The plinkety-plonkety broken toy piano accompaniment to
'Orange' is as disconcerting as it is delightful and the
sunny reggae flavour of final track 'Malerina' is a hoot!

'Port Entropy' is eccentric, captivating and lots of fun.

Highly Recommended.

This is a wonderful album. You have probably already heard it, if you are looking to buy a physical copy, and I would urge you to. It's important to support the artists we enjoy.

Amazing follow up to Exit 13 Sept. 2012
By Senbonzakura - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Tokumaru Shugo is simply amazing. This album picks up right where Exit left off and even improves in some areas. You don't need to know Japanese to appreciate this album. Fans of Radiohead, The Arcade Fire, Elliott Smith, ect. type bands will enjoy this album a lot. There isn't much advantage to getting a hard copy unless you can read the Japanese lyrics booklet so downloading the MP3s is a good option but I would say buy this album if you are a music lover. You won't be sorry!
