One year started passing away. I was arrested in speeding, and am breathing in the fool powder.
However, new album TOWARD THE EVENT HORIZON of JOJ was released at such time.
It listened immediately. I was knocked out by the first song.I think it to be return to the route
of an initial album, MUJYO, and PRAYER of JOJ. However, something is definitely different.
If the tune of initial JOJ is compared to the watercolor, the tune of a next album is feeling
that the bolt and the nut stick up on the canvas.
Moreover, the canvas is a roughly-planed as for the steel board.
Each sound has not been buried behind feeling rough though the sound feels rough.
They are the sounds which have not been listened.
The thing that the restriction of the sound making comes off by having released it from
label different from former might be large.
Tunes of JOJ have been closely linked with the real world as understood even if past release
iis seen. They do not escape the reality to the world away like estheticism Gothic music.
I think that this sound is necessary so that JOJ may face the world.
"Did it go mad the world in this one year?" I like feeling think that the world was changed.
Will it be a grubbed view to interpret the expression of the seen world because of an analog
sound as the strategy of JOJ when the digital technique develops, and it was informationized?
It starts appealing for this album to the world which is not usual and became it.
Even the title is not normal either. "Toward the event horizon".
We can not know the other side of the event horizon.
And, even light cannot occur there, too.
Is the opponent destruction or the complete dark?
Does JOJ face there?, Does the world face there?, Either is not certain.
JOJ seems to have rounded on yen around, to have returned to the first point, drawn the
spiral to tell the truth, and reached a position which is quite different from former.
However, this movement only descends and is sure to exist.
The edge of the black hole is drawn and the spiral is drawn.
Will the opponent of "EVENT HORIZON" be the dark which light overflows?
I think that the answer is in the album.
