AllMusic Review by

A track very heavy with funk-bass gets things started on this self-titled side project of the Ruins' Yoshida Tatsuya. By the second number, however, grinding guitar provides a static edge, letting the audience know that this is not something straight out of the '70s. By the end of the same track, everything has descended into apocalyptic collapse. Korekyojin's addictive groove makes it really impossible, however, to not want to come along for the ride. The music is frenetic, but never chaotic. Every single, psychotic element is perfectly in its place. Despite its hard edge, the album doesn't stray far from standard funk-jazz. Tatsuya may not be wading too deeply into theory here, but he seems to be having a great time.
