4.0 excellentEli EMERITUS | March 16th 11

Terrible day: Organic Chemistry final at 7:30am, rainy and cold, and I puked in front of a cute young lady on the sidewalk. But when I put New Album on, all that shit kind of went away. Oh yeah it's cliche to say such, but each track exponentially kicks more ass as the album moves along. It truly is "dreamy," and could almost be considered Boris' "pop album." For all the people who have been writing this band off as a drone based stoner novelty, you need to fucking hear this. And if their next two 2011 efforts are as good as this, then Boris is poised to be THE band of the year.

3.0 gooddreamobile | March 20th 11

I was all set to hate this album. I mean, let's be honest, who wants j-pop from Boris? However as soon as I heard Takeshi's giddy vocals on the first track I couldn't help but smile. From then out Boris pull out every cliched trick in the book, from corny synths to club friendly drum machines. But they sincerely sound like they're having such a good time that I can't fault them for it.

3.5 greatOU818 | May 5th 14

it's Boris but it's j-pop, it's j-pop but it's Boris, and if it's Boris' j-pop, then it's alright to say the most.

0.0 Cam EMERITUS | April 22nd 11

I just hope this will end up being an anomaly in Boris's discography and not the foretellings of a newfound direction for the band, because, as fun and enjoyable and catchy as this is, it pales in comparison to Rainbow and Pink and Flood. They're just way too good at that heavy stuff to keep up this shit.

My girlfriend's 9 year old sister is in the process of making up an anime series. I'm pretty sure I'll be giving her this album as a possible soundtrack candidate.

4.0 excellentmyhigherpie | March 26th 11

Catchier than the top 40 and 100% stoner friendly, and just completely rocking the entire way through.

3.5 greatVoivod STAFF | March 20th 11

Moments of sheer brilliance that this band can produce with a snap of its finger, are mixed with moments of pop-esque "naiveness" in the New Album, with the latter somewhat watering down the overall quality of the record. Nevertheless, the record remains a thoroughly interesting listen.

4.0 excellentZion | March 19th 11

I've played this album 6 times today. That never happens. I recommend Luna Sea to anyone who likes this album. Different, but good.

3.0 goodYoung Buck | March 18th 11

Boris try and make an Asobi Seksu album... i think they should have just made another Boris album

0.0 INFINITY ACTRESS | March 17th 11

I was extremely skeptical about this, but it's really sweet

4.5 superbFadedSun | March 17th 11

Very, very surprised by this album. It's incredible. Every song is good. You could consider this Boris's pop album, but that doesn't mean anything. This is quickly becoming one of my top Boris albums, but people are going to hate on this album, I suspect, since it's not whatever album they loved from Boris part 2.
