What They Say
Renowned for the wild, biting lyrics that personified their killer songs, The Pillows unfurl a new compilation of unreleased tracks, including full-length versions of their signature hit songs from the series Fooly Cooly.

This CD features a full-color insert booklet with new Fooly Cooly cover art, lyrics, and song titles translated in English, as well as romanized lyrics.

The Review!
When I saw this come in the mail, I said out loud, "OH NOES, not another FLCL disc!" I was bummed. However, listening to it has been a pleasant surprise. Its more like a branded The Pillows album than an FLCL product. No chitter-chatter, no bull. This is a solid rock album, and it had a long way to go to win me. Guess who got won? If you like J-rock, pop this in for some no-frills proto-pop/punk. The only negative here is that many of the tracks sound very similar to each other. I wonder how long they took to write this disc.

Best Track: Beautiful Morning with You. I like the juxtaposition of the soft and hard rock, and again, getting me to like that sort of transition is a trial by fire.
Skip-it Track: Runner's High. This grated on my nerves more heavily than a nasally-delivered convention lecture on the cultural relevance of fansubbed Naruto by someone who doesn't know that VIZ representatives are sitting not 20 feet away. Entertaining and ironic at first, irritating the longer it continues.
Rating: 3.5 of 5
