As requested, here's the second album by Japan's Dada. This guitar and synth duo (each plays both) released their first impossible to find LP on the legendary Vanity label. I understand it's supposed to be very Fripp and Eno sounding (never been able to track one down personally). Well...if that was the case with their debut, there's little evidence of it here. This album pretty much divides itself evenly between two compositional poles. The three tracks composed by (or in the case of track one, co-composed by) Kenji Konishi are madly percolating cartoonish little electronic treasures that sound equal parts Bernard Szajner, Mort Garson and Bruce Haack and are the principal reason why I'd urge one and all to check this out posthaste (they're tracks 1, 5 & 6 in case you're interested). When Mutsuhiko Izumi is at the compositional helm however, things take a turn for the ponderously grandiose and schmaltzy. Put that aside though and just make a beeline for what's special about this odd little record.
