Psicodelismo pesado, metalizado e soturno vem de terras japonesas diretamente para as páginas do TBTCI.
O quarteto Qujaku depois de três singles chegam enfim ao primeiro disco, e um disco que definitivamente não é recomendado a qualquer audição. Situado sonoramente em uma tênue linha quase inexistente entre Kyuss, King Crimson, Swans (fase atual) e Velvet Underground, os caras cometeram um disco extremamente caótico dentro de um ambiente extremamente particular.
A começar pelos mais de dezenove minutos de "Shoku No Hakumei", umas das aberturas de um debute mais anti tudo de todos os tempos, o Qujaku já deixa explícito o que o ouvinte tem pela frente, e, caso você consiga passar pela devastação da abertura outros prazeres, como a dilacerante"Hadaka No Inochi", lhe aguardam no decorrer de quase uma hora e dez minutos de caos.
Não recomendado a hipsters festivos e indie kids.
