The Review!
5 out of 5
A T. M. Revolution Album

This CD comes with an eighteen-page insert. The first page is a very small song title list, with a very interesting picture of the back end of a car on the opposite page. The next six pages consist of the same format of One page with a picture of Takanori Nishikawa (T. M. Revolution) and Japanese Romanji lyrics to two songs on the opposite page. The Seventh and eight pages are full color pictures of T. M. Revolution singing. The next six pages are in the same format as the first six. The next page is just the Japanese Romanji lyrics to the last song, a bonus track from Rurouni Kenshin. The final page is a list of credits for the CD, and the special thanks section.
Also included in the CD package is a small pocket pencil board with a full color picture of T. M. Revolution and the album title on one side, and some personal facts about T. M. Revolution on the other side. And a postcard from Tofu Records to send away for information about upcoming artists, promotions and the like.

Most Americans when they are asked what J-Pop is, they immediately think of dance music, or Techno with lyrics. And granted, that is true for some artists, however, it?s artists like T. M. Revolution that reminds those people that the only difference between American Pop music and J-pop is the language of the lyrics. This one could come straight off the billboard charts with an amazing collection of varied songs. Like the artists found on any radio station in America, T. M. Revolution jumps into the ears and just keeps you up. Here is a collection of songs that go from a rock beat to the dance numbers more familiar to the American J-pop fans, to a softer more ballad type, and right back into a fast, furious, fun world of music. The varied styles of songs show the great range of the artist in his ability to move from one genre to the next without blinking an eye. It is this type of artist that we follow throughout his career, from humble beginnings, to the inevitable retirement. The music itself is catchy, even the slower songs have the quality of a classic that keeps you listening multiple times. Whether you know the Japanese language or not, this album is still fun to listen to. I was highly impressed with the artist?s ability to bring in a listener.

I?d have to say a good all around view of what J-pop really is.

Fangboy says?I like it, I really, really like it.
