Soundtrack Katamari Damacy soundtrack
With some eccentric electronic instrumentals, male and female/English and Japanese vocals with a lively presentation, absurd doses of catchiness, and a charm and upbeat sound unlike anything else, Katamari Damacy has a truly interesting soundtrack that should not be missed. In fact if you haven't played the game, pick this up anyway for something special and quirky

BT This Binary Universe
With roots planted in progressive house, Brian Transeau has built a beautiful new sound for himself. From the organic ambiance of the rain to the hyper-processed electronic melodies, This Binary Universe's sound is cohesive and fully realized. You can see snowflakes falling outside the window on "Dynamic Symmetry", or taste the tears from the pianos of "The Internal Locus". Rich and engaging, BT creates a masterpiece in progressive electronic music that any fan of electronica should check out right away.

Pizzicato Five Happy End of the World
Pizzicato Five Playboy and Playgirl
Pizzicato Five Overdose
After releasing 2 mint releases, This Year's Girl and Bossa Nova, the band suffers from "follow-up syndrome"; the pressure is on, and its difficult to best or even compare to a classic record (or in their case, 2 records), so an expected sense of being "burnt-out" comes with their 1994 album Overdose. They take the experimental approach this time, diving further into styles like electronic and soul. Still a worthy addition to the band's discography, if a bit disappointing.
Pizzicato Five Bellissima!
Bellissima! is a great follow-up to Couples, featuring groovy, smooth pacing and appropriately easy-going songs with all-male vocals. Simultaneously danceable and relaxing, a fun and enjoyable pop record reaching out to the jazz and soul tendencies the band would later perfect.
Pizzicato Five This Year's Girl
You probably came here because of "Baby Love Child", but there's much more to This Year's Girl than Futurama notoriety. Arguably their best album next to Bossa Nova, Pizzicato Five show off their definitive sound here, and introduce their leading songstress Maki Nomitya to their party. This Year's Girl is a shibuya-kei classic, unifying everything the band has done in the past adding the sweet vocals of Nomiya to their mix. A fully-realized, thoroughly enjoyable effort from the group.

A Day to Remember For Those Who Have Heart
While I don't particularly like the rest of A Day To Remember's discography, For Those Who Have Heart really isn't a bad album at all. It actually makes a pretty solid pop-punk record, with plenty of catchy vocals and decently fun vibes overall. The hardcore segments and breakdowns are quite cheesy for the most part, especially on "A Shot In The Dark", and unfortunately they're all over the entire album which makes it quite repetitive, but they at least convey a sense of energy and vitality that drives their music forward. The pop tendencies are there but they aren't as powerful as they are on Homesick (which is a good thing), and the more hardcore-oriented sections aren't as pretentious and do a much better job sticking to the punkier side of the genre. The result is something very catchy and decently memorable, seeing the band in the best shape of their career.

bansheebeat Galactics
In a Benn Jordan fashion, bansheebeat brings IDM to outer space with this calming, electric EP. Galactics delivers the ambiance of a space station, and wouldn't sound out of place in Xenosaga. Rather than going for a feeling of emptiness or infinity, the EP simply lights up and pulses for the listener, taking the "emptiness" out of space and filling it with the lunar bases/space hotels of the future. "Above the Stratosphere" is the charming highlight, filled with eclectic melodies and an easygoing, exotic percussion. In its entirety, the album gives a warm, if processed, sensation of living around technology.

A solid, more straightforward rock album from the unique singer. Sadly, she doesn't flex her characteristic squalling vocals enough and subsequently fails to deliver her usual barrel-of-monkeys surprises, leaving a bit to be desired.

Not terribly robust or clever, but it's so damn catchy. Among my favorite of Green Day's records. May be too poppy for some loving Green Day's punkier past.

There?s something sinister dwelling deep inside the heart of J-pop. Behind the cute, bubbly exterior sleeps a hostile, wide-eyed, predatory devil spawn tempting us into sin. We all know it. You think those trance-inducing candy-pop singers are really that cute by nature? No ordinary human being does that on purpose. It?s a sick, demented ruse veiling black souls filled with deceit and bloodlust burning passionately like a hellfire. The sad thing is how they?ve already won. There exists legions of devoted fans that have fallen prey to these wicked entities. Catchiness is to sloth as the child-like, innocent pop songstresses are to lust. We?re going to burn in hell for this.

A genuinely soothing and ultimately satisfying piece. Becky's sultry vocals, like whispers, sedate the listener through breezy tracks like "Epilogue" and "Moonwalker" while turning more active songs like "In the Ashes" into silky dance melodies. A couple songs fall short, but Haunted is a pleasant, relaxing experience.

Pizzicato Five The Sound of Music
Pizzicato Five's third U.S. release is simply a collection of previously released material mostly from their albums Bossa Nova and Overdose. The tracklist is nice, and for the most part is a solid entryway for newcomers to the band, particularly for the U.S. demographic. It's not particularly hard to find or expensive either, and so if you are planning on getting into the band The Sound of Music is a decent place to start, though Made in USA is better. Existing language barriers haven't been lifted, however.

Hiromi Place To Be
Similar to Bjork's Medulla, Hiromi composes an album entirely from her favorite musical instrument and abandons everything else. Also like Medulla, Place to Be is obviously more barren than her previous works, for better or worse, and the resulting album is one best suited for fans and is by no means her defining moment.

Converge Petitioning the Empty Sky
"The Saddest Day" is the best song on the album by a lot. This is probably the worst thing that could happen to the album however. Seeing that it's so superior to the much shorter songs in the center, which range from great ("Forsaken") to good ("Dead", "Shingles) to awful ("Buried but Breathing"), it can be a pretty unbalanced listen as a whole. Though it may be better in individual bursts (even for the album's modest length), its hard to deny the musicianship present here, being a great, highly-technical metalcore album that's a lot of fun despite its questionable flow.
Converge When Forever Comes Crashing
this feels more balanced than Petitioning the Empty Sky: less classic songs and less dud ones too. That said, When Forever Comes Crashing basically follows in the same steps as its predecessor, delivering very technical hardcore/metalcore with attitude, energy and a tad more experimentation.

With Kap Bambino, you'll find some tunes part charming, part cacophony that you'll have to accept the group for what they are, and if you do, you'll find some solid energy and attitude similar to Crystal Castles. This album, however, seems to contradict what keeps Kap Bambino listenable, dragging the group down to a fault.

Owl City Ocean Eyes
Quite a step back for Young. He sees himself in his ocean-loving state of euphoria sprinkled with vanilla and sea salt. He's really just taking his refined Maybe I'm Dreaming sound and selling himself out a bit. While it isn't awful (see "Umbrella Beach", "Cave In", "Tidal Wave"), its still a largely goofy electronic album appealing to the sugary-sweet-at-heart and little else.

Soft Metals The Cold World Melts
Insidiously boring, plain and uninspired. Occasionally The Cold World Melts finds a catchy spot to tickle you with, but there's too little to excite within the songs, and that's not enough to keep it afloat from wallowing in a pool of Glasser/The Knife copycats. I'll be fucked if the cold world does melt.

Owl City All Things Bright And Beautiful
"Potential" is an interesting word. It foresees achievement and failure simultaneously. It never means an artist is guaranteed to utilize their potential, nor does it mean they are doomed to failure. With the assumption of potential comes either satisfaction or disappointment, a prognostic at best.rWhen Owl City, young and naive, released the bubbly and respectable Of June and Maybe I'm Dreaming, I had hopes that he could somehow make his gooey lyrics and dreamy aesthetic work, maybe coming to the realization that instrumentation should be more prominent than vocals, or that "sweet", "delicate" and "effeminate" had an extremely fine line. Ocean Eyes was a slump, going in the direction I had hoped he didn't head for, trying too hard in terms of ambition. It's sad to say All Things Bright and Beautiful is even worse, though it's just how it is. "Potential" was a flickering flame come his 2009 breakthrough, but now it's snuffed out completely. Benefit of the doubt? High expectations? Maybe so. I'm sure it's not that hard to write less ridiculous songs that don't aim for simplistic daydreamy appeal ("Alligator Sky"? "All Things Bright and Beautiful"? Come on) or erect themselves as the "cake and icecream" of electronic music though. Even still, it's my fault, not his.

so like...do all these victory records bands really gain anything by re-issuing not-that-old albums all the time? it just seems like they want to add to their lineup of albums, so instead of working on new albums, they just work on old albums
