Exactly Sona, Channel Pressure has alot more going for it than a lazy hat-tipper to beach boys harmonies and tropical instrumentation drenched in reverb. In fact, it doesn't really have any of that. It's just a really solid synth pop album.
I'm kind of hoping the new OPN sounds a bit like that (but a little more obscure, knowing Lopatin's sonic trickery)
