5.0 out of 5 stars Magnificently captivating, 27 Jan 2009
I'd been putting off watching Paprika for a while, mostly because I was a dubious about how a film based on dreams could hold it's own against a film like "Millenium actress". I've been humbled.

You can see that every part of the film has been observed through a fine toothed comb. The lush backgrounds, the characters created with depth and personality, the amazing plot and storyline. All of these are done superbly, but even more incredibly the score was mesmerising. I don't normally notice such things, but every time music came in, it created an atmosphere, gave an emotion and enveloped you in the rest of the film. I can't think of any reason to give this film less than five stars, it's a pleasure to view, it's an auditory dream, it's story is second to none. My only gripe is that the majority of westerners won't see it because of subtitles, but more shame them.

4.0 out of 5 stars Worth more than a listen, people should buy this anyway!!, 5 Jan 2004
I've got all of Sponges albums, and this is by far the best overall. It hasn't got a track as aurally pleasing as Molly, but every song on it makes for compelling listening.
If the album did have something as memorable or as unique as Rotting Pinata, it would have gladly received 5 stars from me. However, when listening to it, it never seems to go amywhere, as it's so consistently good, but at no point does it become truly amazing.
If you like any of sponge's other stuff, this'll make you like them more.

I've been listening to this constatly for the past month, and it's the first album in years to keep me interested. Lyricly, Jean Grae is untouchable, combining peotic writing with amazing wordplay. The beats roll you along, set the mood for the tracks perfectly, and most of all keep you well entertained.
As you can guess from the title, a few of the tracks are taken from other artists. The Eminem cover is particularly well done, and Jean Grae emulates his style better than a master can a student.
It really is one of the best albums I've heard for a long time. Waiting for the next one with eager ears :o)
