Simply outstanding music

"I discovered Hiroshima with the purchase of this debut album when it was first released. Of all Hiroshima's albums/cds (and I have them all), this still stands as their best work, due to the absolutely phenomenal "Da-Da." It is the finest meld of eastern instrumentation, jazz and electric rock ever achieved, with simple, but very moving lyrics. That cut alone is worth the purchase of the cd. Add this to your collection - you will not be disappointed."

"Since listening to Hiroshima in concert 17 years ago in Orlando,Florida, I have very much enjoyed their fusion of jazz sounds and japanese instruments. One of their first albums, (Odori) really got my attention because of its sweet sounds and female vocalists that made it unique from other jazz fusion sounds. Their later recordings in the mid 1990's to current with the exception of "Black and White" have strayed too much with the mainstream and with male vocalists on track have changed the sound of Hiroshima. However, with the recent title, I'm beginning to return to Hiroshima's smooth jazz sounds. Bring back Hiroshima's female vocalists!!"

"i first heard hiroshima a couple of years ago and not knowing what they actually sounded like partly because the guitarist or the singers weren't with the band at the time, i decided to buy one of their cds for the peaceful japanese music they played on the show. i finally listened to the cd tonight and was pleasantly surprised by the jazz fusion sound and the quality of the music. i don't think very many people know the band as well as they should maybe because of their name not really recognized as the name of a band that would play good jazz fusion. also, i've yet to hear them played on any radio station. if you like jazz then this cd tinged with a japanese music edge is a good way to start listening to this particular band. the singers are very good and you'll get some singing and some music without the singers. hiroshima deserves critical as well as american recognition."
