Paintbox – Trip, Trance & Travelling

Paintbox full lengths

Already got the Paintbox Lp’s before Christmas. I also bought the cd version of  “Trip, Trance & Travelling” with the intention to give it to a Japenese friend who is into psych music. Now I think I just burn a copy for him, coz I think the cd version does more justice to the cover art and the booklet has way more pictures than the LP version. Anyway one of the best album of 2009, if not the best. Japanese Burning Spirit Hardcore mixed with Folk, Psych and J-pop. In general I hate guitar solo’s , but Paintbox’s guitarist Chelsea plays them with such an incredible skill and soul that it doesnt matter at all. As soon as he lets his guitar howl in the first song “Cry of the Sheep”…..

The next song “A Field in the Moonlight” is way more weird with kitchy J-pop vocals and a saxophone. You either hate it or love it:
