And that's where The Boy And The Tree comes in. The ante is upped yet further, with the tracks almost gaining traditional song forms at times. The usual beautiful dub/ambient sounds are here, with lush voices speaking in not-quite-words, but most tracks feature full rhythm (log drums, african/japanese/jazz sounds etc.) and some have quite a fast tempo (relative to the usual tempo in Yokota's ambient recordings). And while I would recommend you buy the other two albums in order, this album is definitely the best product of Mr. Yokota's offbeat, relaxed vision so far.
Again he proceeds to combine beautiful, sweet ambient sounds to just immerse you totally in his sound. It's like voices and sounds that you recall from your past, like looking back hazily through time. I don't know how he manages to do it, but there is something magical about the music he makes.
From what other have said to me about Susumu Yokota's music, it seems to transcend all boundaries, his music can mean many things to many different people.
For all those who like electronica, then this has to be an album you must consider buying. Again the cover design is just delightful.

This incredible offering from Yakota is art in it's truest sense. It's a slice of Japanese culture seemingly etched on to a canvas in a hut on the side of a mountain. Read morePublished on 21 Aug. 2008 by Love-Is-Music
