I cannot say enough good things about his album. Personally, it came out of left field. I was swept up with the critical acclaim as a friend recommended it to me. To use a few of his words to describe what really makes this album good, Japanese Breakfast does an outstanding job with their mastery of noise. Every level of hearing seems to be filled with some melodic contribution to the overall song. On nearly every track no less! The lyrics are meaningful and the singing is splendid.
