The Power Source

Review by David Cirone

Opening the album with the show-stopping “Birthday Song” is a big risk, but who other than JUDY AND MARY can pull it off? Grand scale vocals from Yuki, and serious showmanship from guitarist Takuya set the bar high from the get-go, and it just gets more wonderful after that. “Lovely baby,” “Sobakasu,” “Kujira 12-go” (feat. a slick bass line from Onda) are classics, and “Kaze ni Fukarete” grounds the album from becoming too stratospheric with Yuki’s refined and unusually-understated vocal performance. Final track “The Great Escape” is a knockout punch.
