Review Summary: Too much of a good thing

Kyary Pamyu Pamyu's fourth release in four years Pikapika Fantajin has the sensational pop star rattling albums off like a japanese version of The Smiths, but quantity does not always equal quality as Kyary's last two records show a glaring inconsistency in quality. Like Nandacollection, Pikapika Fantajin consists of top notch singles rounded off by uninspired deep cuts that range from tolerable ("Family Party," "Sungoi Aura," "Explorer") to borderline unbearable ("Koi Koi Koi," "Serious Hitomi"). The six or so sing-along/dance friendly top notch J-pop songs however are strong enough to warrant replaying Pikapika Fantajin all summer long, as long as you're willing to skip tracks somewhat often.

Idk how an album rife with skippable tracks is still rated 'great'

"sounds like a repeat of nandacollection then"



Yeah that's why the review is so short because I basically said all that needs to be said in my Nanda collection review
