"So the ink hasnt dried up yet on the review of the last Andrew Chalk CD in Vital Weekly and theres already a new one. Talk about being productive! This album contains no less than 49 tracks, all ranging between half a minute and two minutes. As such you would expect a fragmented listening affair, but not so. Even though the sounds are far more diverse than on Mutsu no hana (his previous album on Anarchives), there is a coherence that is very satisfying. Somehow, it passes its 44 minutes in one flow. Smooth and relaxing, but also demanding attention. Droney, but with much air around the music. Theres keyboards-a-plenty, but all with different sounds, some concrete sounds, other instruments, adding up to this most fascinating play. Play this random and youll get an instant new composition. The 49 views are packed in a handmade oversized slipcase (much like Raymond Dijkstras albums) with embossed picture on the front and obi with Andrews name and album title in Japanese. In all, 400 copies are available. I know I was very enthusiastic about Andrews previous album, but Im beginning to feel I like this one even more." [FK/Vital Weekly]
