Subject: I have found a CD that I think you would enjoy
Overall a good album, but not as solid as hide's "Psyence"
(4 out of 5 stars)
"3.2.1 - The album by Zilch, led by the late hide (Matsumoto Hideto) gives some serious grind for your money, but aside from the reworked version of DRAIN by X-Japan, entitled "What's Up Mr. Jones?", and a couple of tracks like "Space Monkey Punks From Japan" and "Electric Cucumber" this CD becomes a little sluggish at times. Highly recommended, but check out hide's solo album "Psyence" or his work with Spread Beaver first, if you can. The musicianship, from both hide and the rest of the band, comprised of Killing Joke and Prong alumni, however, is top notch, and hide's jumbled psychobabbles are at their best."

"I have gotton this CD along time in Japan (release: 97.7) I really love this CD. The singer and guitarist is from japan's legendary rock band X Japan. All sung in English, I really like this album. It has great guitars and rock sound. If u know about X Japan, then you'll know some of the songs like "What's up Mr. Jones?" and "Doubt" are american versions of "Drain" and "Doubt". But this is great buy if you like that realy heavy music. My only dissapointment is that it has no variety like the lead singer (hide) has in his other solo albums. it sounds the same almost, but still very good. My favorite tracks are: "Electric Cucumber", "Inside the Pervert mound" "Space Monkey's from Japan", What's up Mr. Jones?""
12 songs of STUDLY industrial!

"I got this cd a couple months ago when it was released in Japan. The singer is Japanese but he really brings a new sound to the American music industry. Most of the songs are hard rock and industrial but a pretty funky song pops up in the cd. This CD has really awesome loud-grinding guitars. To make it even better, the cd includes many guest musicians that some of you may know such as some who have had credentials with THE CULT and SEX PISTOLS and many other industrial bands. There is also "PODBOY" on the drums. Anyway, this is a great cd and it's worth buying it! Personally, my favorites are "Electric Cucumber," "Space Monkeys from Japan," "What's up Mr. Jones?", "Psyche" and "Pose""
