Album Review

Batoh, Masaki – “Collected Works 1995-1996 ” – [The Now Sound]

loun   10/16/2007   A Library, CD

Batoh-san occasionally steps away from Ghost to do some of his own work, which simultaneously does and doesn’t sound like Ghost, attesting to the strength of his influence on the band, while showing that it is not his work alone. This disc is an interesting slice of Batoh-san’s solo output of the last twenty years, from the ghostly presence of “Benthos” to the almost comic sincerity of “World of Pain” to the shamanistic meandering of “Magakami”, to… well, every track seems to have its own vitality, so you are encouraged to screen before broadcasting to determine which tracks most appeal to you. Fortunately, this is not difficult, as the tracks quickly resolve their character before exploring it.
