5.0 out of 5 stars A Shoegaze Masterpiece, 6 Jun. 2007
This review is from: Citrus (Audio CD)
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.
