Reissue of this very legendary psychedelic masterwork from Japan, first released in 1968. Rumored to be a big influence on High Rise, one of their tracks ("Marianne") was covered by Fushitsusha on Tokyo Flashback II. "Here's what is considered one of the best psychedelic records in the world and certainly one of the must-have Japanese rock albums. The Jacks managed to record a very unique album, very dark and introspective, an album full of tension and contained wrath that maintains its power by refusing to fully explode. You'll find fuzz guitars, tremolo, lots of reverb and the occasional use of flute and vibraphone. The lyrics, for those who can understand them, are an extra asset of this record, and were the reason why Vacant World got banned from Japanese radio. This is the first time that Vacant World is reissued in identical form to the original issue, on red vinyl and with the lyrics insert sheet."
