Asian Kung-Fu Generation – マジックディスク Review


After a couple less than impressive singles, Asian Kung-Fu Generation return with their newest full-length and thankfully it is another great album. I always thought that the band composes some of the most layered rock songs and is one of the best Japanese bands existing.

マジックディスク reminds me of why I got into the band in the first place with soaring chorus and difficult to interpret drumming and it remains true here. They show that rock doesn’t necessarily need to be pumping time signatures and can sit in slower tempos while still pushing great music. There last couple albums were good, but felt a little bland, but マジックディスク is amazing.

If you’ve never listened to Asian Kung-Fu Generation, it’s time.
