Never listened to Tricot before, but seeing the posts in here make me feel like I should. I fucking love Toe, who are also Japanese, play Math Rock and would love some more bands like this.

Sadly it's not T H E but I don't think it's fair to compare. This album does its own thing and I have noticed it's much more darker than their previous stuff (irony). It's really great, Mitete is incredible and I like this newer sound, but I'm afraid they will never impress me like they did with T H E

I have listened to one Spotify rip before this got posted, didn't listen to this one but can confirm some songs stutter. Just listen to it on Spotify

Oh so they're back to being boring and doing what Avex tells them again? Fucking hell, every single fucking time they start to get interesting, they go right back to dribbling out the most boring shit instead of going further with the innovation.


So many better underrated Japanese artists that don't get the attention Tricot does. Total shame.

I really want to know the context behind this. I'm not familiar with this band at all, but from what you're saying it sounds like one of the members suffocates the potential of the group.

Oh idk the specifics of it, I'm not them, I don't even know anything about the members.

 

T H E was a really promising debut despite not really being that special, A N D was half-mid/half really good but an overall letdown from the potential that T H E showed, 3 mostly delivered on that promise and actually managed to combine pop-friendly songwriting while still being just a bit complex enough to satisfy math rock fans (?), and just last year on the Repeat EP they started doing some really fucking out of the box shit despite every song basically being the same song.

 

This whole album is just all the same shit tho, just really milquetoast pop-pandering. And there's nothing even wrong with simplistic pop music, there's some fucking outstanding pop records out there, I love pop music, but there's nothing even catchy or unique about this. Just Avex Trax bootlicking. People who don't listen to much J-music will love this tho, but people who've been listening to Japan for more than two or three years have and are hearing better right now.

 

Anyways, if you're looking for interesting J-music artists kicking around right now, Minakekke, Xiangyu, Mariko Goto's new solo project, and Oyasumi Hologram are incredible right now. If you're looking for something that's mathy and actually unique, Maison Book Girl might be an "idol group" at their core, but they're fucking exceptional and nobody else has ever sounded like them outside of the like two other artists their producer has worked with before. And if you want the alternative, the last two Number Girl albums are basically everything Tricot has failed to be.

Oof. T H E is almost flawless imo, A N D was a slight let down compared to T H E but still great, 3 was great and offered more of their melodic side, but I wasn't very keen on Repeat. Didn't seem interesting enough besides BUTTER which is my favorite song of their. This ain't no T H E but the first 6 songs I can easily call flawless however it starts to lose energy after that. Definitely my second fav from them, but I'm very biased and love them a lot
