Customer Reviews

Excellent album from MONORAL

Note: The international version of "Turbulence" omits two tracks ("Pocketful of Joy" and "Visions in My Head") compared to the Japanese release, so if you're looking for those two tracks, you'll have to find them on the "Visions in My Head" single. "Turbulence" is an excellent album with a lot of heart behind it. If you like music with an alternative/hard-rock/grunge flare, MONORAL is definitely a group worth checking out, and they're a band based in Japan, most would note them for singing the theme to the anime "Ergo Proxy" ("kiri", featured on this album). Even if you're not an anime fan, I think many people who like the stylistics mentioned would find something to enjoy from this album. From the strong energetic phrasing of "Sparta" opening the album, to the melodic "Session 9", every track has a strong root to it. A few of my personal favorite tracks include "Tuesday"; "Perfect Gold"; "Sparta"; "Vimana" and the reflective "Monkey Cage". For the price, I would recommend buying the whole album off Itunes. It's well worth the price. I'm glad Itunes added this to their MONORAL discography, and I hope "Petrol" finds its way here too since both albums are equally strong.

Music that can touch you through sound

When I came across MONORAL, I was watching Ergo Proxy and found myself mesmerized by the opening theme "Kiri." I just had to know who was this band. I never slowed down the credits long enough to get it right, but I got it from somewhere that song credit belonged to Radiohead. So naturally, I hunted down Radiohead music, but something was wrong. The performance of "Kiri" certainly was not Radiohead's. I had to know whose song it was, and finally, I came across them as completely be accident as I came across HYDE, the incredible force of feeling and sound with such a passionate tangible voice that reaches acrosses the ocean and through speakers to touch my soul that signed the group with VAMPROSE. MONORAL's sound overwhelms me and embraces me, carrying me to places that can only be imagined. Anis' voice does to me what Eddie Vedder's voice could do, stop me dead in my tracks and consider, yet Anis' voice is distinctive and unique. Ali and Anis make a great team, creating music that should be recognized and appreciated regardless of nationality. They're awesome.

Love Monoral!

They are amazing! A must buy! Some of the best, unique music out there!

Biography

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '00s

While nominally belonging to the J-rock movement, Monoral don't really have anything to do with the style, playing an alt-rock/grunge mixture with eyes set on Muse and Pearl Jam instead of upgrading '80s music like so many of their compatriots. But this is only fitting, because the duo is comprised of two half-Japanese musicians fluent in English (a fact heavily employed in their own music): Ali Morizumi, who handles guitars and bass, is half American, although he grew up in Tokyo; and Anis Shimada,...
