REVIEW:
現在みみのこと、20GUILDERSでも活動するアーティストの2年ぶりのソロ'10年作。ゆっくりと大空を滑空し、大地を這い、ときおり声をあげる、シンプルで生命力溢れるギター・インストを中心にした快作。高橋幾郎が4曲にドラムで参加。全編札幌録音。

New solo album from the leader of the re-born Miminokoto with a more zoned folk/space vibe than the garage punk style of his group. Buried Sky... features ex-Fushitsusha/Kousokuya drummer Ikuro Takahashi on several tracks, cutting through voids of drone and F/X with martial explosions and starlight percussion in a way that touches on the horizontal take-off style of prime Tsurubami with added black monk throat-gargling and Mazzacane style moan giving it a devotional sky-kissing appeal that is pure bliss. Also features Richard Horneri on synths for one track. On Junzo's own label. Recommended. (By David Keenan on Volcanic Tongue)

Japanese guitar explorer, Song-writer and Acid Mothers Temple Associate Suzuki Junzo's latest Album explores many styles and moods. It begins with the gentle 'Anastasia' with its rustic electric guitar sound, However, this is followed by the smoke and thunder of 'In through the yellow clouds'. All drum rolls. ommious guitar soloing and buzzing bass for dramatic music. Black Pendulum comes on like Con or Eno doing a spy movie soundtrack.It is sparse, subtle, motorik and edgy. Flea's trance and Is anybody out> both see Junzo kicking against rocks rule book, The first is a bizzarre, free guitar waltz, The second is a strange wlking blues session. The title song is a slow, steady song-lead piece with some blistling guita playing. Showcasing the fact that Junzo can solo with the best of them but only does it when the song needs it. Them two love each other madly is a brief dark twangy guitar piece like Duane Eddy playing SunO))). This gives way to the eleven minutes slab of headfeck that is ' Assassination Of Blind Joe Reynolds' Here the guitar intro to Can's you doo right meets the epic space and time of the start of Leare's Once Upon A Time In The West.' A brain-bending drone track. It all ends with chimes plaintive notes and a meditative lament called '1×8 April'.
