Review Summary: man those Japanese people are crazy (in a good way).

Happy hardcore, a genre, is very hard to screw up when making an album. There are a few simple steps to follow in order to make the music. No matter how dizzying the music sometimes is, everything boils down to these key ingredients: sonorous bass beats, ridiculous speed, and synthesizers. As one might imagine, the end result is hardcore techno, one of the more absurdly aggressive types of electronic music. While many forms of hardcore techno are pure aggression without end, happy hardcore is unique because it brings cheer alongside its violence. It really is as strange as it sounds, because although the genre’s music is meant to sound happy, it often sounds maniacal instead. For the duration of time you listen to this, it will make you feel like you’re losing your mind. Some will find this an unpleasant experience, while others will bask in the insanity. Either way, it’s definitely worth the risk.

Imagine millions of alien parasites entering through your ears and controlling your mind. Now imagine feeling that sensation for the rest of your natural life. It would make you 100% loony! Yes, I’m suggesting that this album messes with your head. For someone with ADHD, though, this would be the perfect album. It’s loud, fast, disjointed, and nonsensical! It’s the musical equivalent to being high, and just one song should be enough to entertain a blonde for hours! It’s as fun as roller-skating down Mount Everest while being chased by ancient mummies (who can ski)! Only a real sour puss would think such ridiculous music to be boring.

Let’s be serious for a second – this isn’t the best happy hardcore album ever. Too often songs fall into the kind of mindless repetition that toy factory workers endure on a daily basis. Besides the numbing beats and random bursts of musical insanity, there isn’t much that separates this album from the pack. However, despite a penchant for familiarity, the songs are consistently good, and make for an all-around solid album. It’s been done before, but they’re doing it so well that it doesn’t matter. I shall say no more. Listen to this album if you dare.

dream, with jon anderson from yes. most of it is completely amazing but kitaro's lyrics are really cheesy, which i guess is why most of his catalog is instrumental

are the extremely positive reviews becoming tiring? honestly the music on that one is some of his best so it's hard to justify anything lower than a 4-ish imo. but i might make the review rating a 3.5 if you so wish.
