The Pillows – Fool on the Planet Review

The Pillows are Japanese indie rock royalty. They’ve been around for such a long time and influenced a lot of bands. Strangely enough, I found The Pillows through an anime Furi Kuri.

They provided the soundtrack and I immediately was hooked on their indie rock style that wasn’t entirely serious. The Pillows are unique in their talents and abilities.

Fool On the Planet is the first release because it has the most songs from the anime that I remember. “Ride on Shooting Star” is an addictive song, simplistic in how it gets stuck in your head.

Released in 2001, it holds up very well to today’s indie rock. It might be nostalgic, but Fool on the Planet is one of those albums that every one does need to hear.
