Released a couple of years after his death, Hide's Psychommunity compilation presents some of the fastest, most maniacal guitar works of the late Japanese guitarist. Hide was regarded as one of the best guitarists in modern Japan, and the breadth of songs on the compilation makes a valiant attempt to showcase the reason behind the acclaim. Metal bits like "Rocket Dive," almost British pop pieces like "Lemoned I Scream," and B'z-like modern screaming sessions like "Pink Spider" all attest to the versatility of the artist and his guitar.
