If you know the MCM's you will know what to expect, if not then prepare for a rollercoaster ride through electronic influenced metal mayhem. From the off the album uses quirky electro/industrial samples and a combination of live and programmed drumming. All surrounded by simple but effective guitar riffs and some truly execellent bass guitar work. Songs range from downright heavy ('Retalk', 'Let it Rip') to the more pop-punk based ('Happy Ride', 'Scary'). Overall the range of styles ensures a constant interest and will mean everyone has a different favourite track - for me its 'Bomb Idea'. The main characteristic of many of the songs here, or on any of the previous albums, is heavy verses often with almost rap like vocals, bordered by sing along chorus' that only the Japanese know how to make. Highly recommended to all, especially those into industrial and metal. The mystery regarding this band is how they manage to sell out 60,000+ capacity venues in Japan but only fill small (often less than 300) venues in Europe and America. Find out why they are so huge in their homeland and continue to spread the international fanbase now!
