4.0 excellentJared Floryan | December 29th 16

Based in New York City, Cibo Matto are nothing if not equal parts aromatic and quirky. The shibuya-kei band's first official record Viva! La Woman was a colorful album as much as it was varied, though the offering managed to stay consistent throughout the duration taking into consideration the amount of diversity it displayed. In an attempt to showcase progression, Cibo decided to somehow offer even more sounds with their sophomore release titled Stereo Type A, while also expanding upon the lyrical themes in the process. There's a stronger focus on melody and atmosphere this time around, but a broad range of styles isn't disregarded; "Blue Train" and fan favorite "Sci-Fi Wasabi" reach heavy metal and hip hop domains respectively. CM's second effort is still unmistakably them and it's yet another damn blast and a half, although some tracks here are nowhere near as memorable as what was presented on Stereo Type A's predecessor. Even so, I definitely recommend checking out both albums all the same.
