Album Review

Vision Creation Newsun finds Boredoms moving even further away from the random noise that marked their early output and settling into a loose, jam-oriented aesthetic. The first two tracks (no song titles here, only symbols) find Boredoms further investigating pounding tribal rock with propulsive drumming, energetic guitar work, and vocal chants. The overall feel bears some similarity to Super Ae, with tracks that draw from Krautrock and psychedelia, but Vision Creation Newsun adds a folk element, including softer instrumental textures like hand percussion, lengthy cymbal washes, and acoustic guitars. Some passages even flirt with new age, as they weave bird songs and the sound of falling water into the mix. These delicate touches aptly demonstrate the sonic range of Boredoms, but some of these meandering pieces can get tedious. Still, the highlights are many. Guitarist Yama-Motor is the star here, and most of Vision Creation Newsun's best moments come from his hypnotic style and deep bag of effects. He is equally at home with the Spacemen 3-style feedback shriek of the second track as he is with the minimalist acoustic work that dominates the latter half of the album. The dual percussion of Yoshimi and ATR is also powerful, but when songs break into long drum solos, Boredoms will lose their more punk-oriented fans. This is not the left-field triumph that Super Ae was, but it's a strong album nonetheless.

Customer Reviews

Buy the ticket, take the ride.

If "Super AE" and "Super Roots 7" were blueprints of what was to come, then "Vision Creation Newsun" is the fully realized structure built atop their foundation. It is a monumental piece of work, one that can only be truly appreciated after close examination. Cymbals, electronics and guitars ebb and flow over chaotic tribal drums and chants.

It is beautiful, cohesive and complex.

"Vision Creation Newsun" is undoubtedly (the) Boredoms best and one of the best albums of the 2000's. It may take a few listens, but once it clicks, you'll be listening over and over for days on end.

It grows on you!

At first I wasnt even sure I liked this and really wasnt sure why I even bought it, but the more I listen to it, the more i like it. its a very cool psychodelic jam session that if you just let it play you wont realize that an hour has passed youll be so lost in the sound scape and pulsing beats that the boredoms create. you definately wont be bored by this album.

Music you can see

and feel. This music is not only beautiful by itself, but is a great companion when you go into "other worlds." Turn this album up loud, and when a strange noise comes blasting through you will feel it through your whole body. The tribal drumming will make you see elephants. In all seriousness, you can see the music, feel it, and almost taste it.

Years Active: '80s, '90s, '00s

Of all the artists in Japan's thriving noise-music community, the Boredoms undoubtedly had the most fun. Although their maniacally extreme cacophony was by no means accessible listening, it was underpinned by a gleeful sense of humor that helped them find a limited (but still surprisingly wide) audience among alternative rockers. A typical Boredoms track might feature massively distorted guitars, squealing synths, any number of odd found-object noisemakers, or studio-manipulation effects; conventional...
