AllMusic Review by

On their eighth full-length album, Japanese rockers Straightener continued their rush through the garage rock aesthetic, but also incorporated new sounds into the mix. Electronica is used for accentuation throughout "Discography," a major hit from the album. Hidekazu Hinata's bass is used prominently throughout the album not only as an anchor but as an occasional melodic instrument in its own right. However, the vocals and guitar of founder Atsushi Horie stand out even more as the key elements in the sort of careful approach to chaos that Straightener epitomize.
