AllMusic Review by

While still a five-person band, Japanese shibuya kei founders Flipper's Guitar broke out with a wide array of sounds on their debut CD. Bossa nova ("Coffee-Milk Crazy"), beach rock, and jazz ("Hello") all make their way into the sound. At the time of its initial release, Three Cheers for Our Side was a landmark in new sound, despite not breaking any major marks in sales. On its 2006 re-release, however, the album re-entered the public consciousness and the influential Flipper's Guitar (long since broken up) found its way back onto the charts.
