Guitarist Tsuneo Imahori contributes a fine Marc Robot-Type solo. In all, six guitarists are credited on the album, including Boredoms’ Seiichi Yamamoto, and Haco has not always kept them under control. The record opens as though determined to thrash about in some hyperactive avant rock sandpit of distortion, but then proceeds to calm down, perhaps with the help of that oceanic bowl of orange pills on the cover. On “Starry Night”, Haco at last unleashes the vocal harmonies she does so well. Elsewhere, sound sculptor Pierre Bastien contributes his machines to a couple of tracks. She is at her best when assembling a landscape of colourful sounds and then singing over it, sounding like she’s not so much fronting a group, as a menagerie of pets.” —Clive Bell (The Wire, UK - July 2000)
