Better than OSC-DIS? Hell Yes!,
This review is from: 10 (Audio CD)
Ok, I will start by saying that I am NOT a fan of metal or 'hard' rock. I tend to listen to ska/punk type stuff. Also, the MCMs are a PUNK band, albeit with metal/techno/etc influences. Ok, on with the review. As long time followers of these guys will know, they had left most of their punk roots behind when they released 'Digidogheadlock', which is terrible. With OSC-DIS though, they began to return to these punky roots, and there were many classic songs (Pulse, Midi Surf, Good Girl, etc). For this album, imagine the best parts of OSC-DIS but even better. Sure, there are still 'heavy' rock parts, which ain't too great, but the rest is pure poppy goodness.
My highlight would have to be 'Fly High' which is one of the most awesome songs I have EVER heard. Other poppy classics are XXX Can of This, Good Day, Gaga Life, RDMC, etc. If, however, you are a fan of their harder side, they don't disappoint here either: Chaos Step being the best of these and others like Bit Crusherrrr and Jam!.
All in all, if you ask me this or OSC-DIS, 010. But if ya can, get both! And if you have never heard anything by these guys, you really should check them out. Glorious Japanese-Cyber-Punk-Digi-Metal Heaven :)
