- SPIN Rating:7 of 10
The fifth full-length from Cornelius -- a.k.a. Japanese studiowhiz Keigo Oyamada -- further refines the slice-and-dice approach thatprompted comparisons to Beck on 2001's Point and the 1997 breakthrough, Fantasma.With a calm kraut-rock singularity of purpose, Oyamada fuses abristling spectrum of textures and rhythms -- from the title track'sconstellations of acoustic guitar to the Stereolab-on-steroids of"Gum." Sensuous it is: an apt soundtrack for sex, staring out train windows, or traversing the Technicolor mayhem of the Shibuya district.
