まちわびまちさびMay 15, 2007
On my second trip to Japan, this album had already been out for a while. Back then, we didn’t have Yesasia and Play-Asia and all these fancy importy onliney shops. Traveling to Japan meant I could get things that I just couldn’t get at home. I made a point of getting to the music store as quickly as possible to pick up the CD.
Buying it doubled the volume of my clammbon world, expanded it into the epic pop territory that they have since explored more and more deeply. I’m actually kind of surprised that “epic pop” is not an existing accepted genre; anyway, that’s my favorite way of describing their music these days.
