Combining eighties Pop and punk-rock, sung in Japanese and English, Polysics pack a whopping punch. Their cocktail of anime, humour and vast amounts of energy packed into pop hooks, mighty riffs and synth magic. Highlights include the forthcoming single ‘New Wave Jacket’ and it’s B-side ‘My Sharona’ (originally by The Knack) both of which are superb; also included is the previous UK single, and tribute to Kajagoogoo, ‘Kaja Kaja Goo’. This album is a fun fuelled party time rock pop extravaganza, and is not to be missed.
