  • This is an album that needs to be heard as an album. The way the tracks work together, it would be hard to separate them and it has an almost Kraftwerk-like sound to it. There's also resemblance to early Future Sound of London and even some Sven Väth throughout the entire album.

  • Charming is the first word that comes to mind when it comes to describing Tokyo Morose's "Specific Ocean". This is stripped down electronica with massive pop sensibilities. It's intelligent pop music, full of charm and character that you can't help but fall in love with.
