"Not many Japanese musicians have made it big outside their own country, but in this is as in so many things Ken Ishii is the exception to the rule. His first album, Jelly Tones, released in 1995 brought his name to the mass public both in Europe and Japan. Another two albums Metal Blue America and Sleeping Madness earned him even more respect and established him as one of the select few Japanese artists with a place on the international stage. Flatspin will undoubtedly take his impressive reputation a stage further. Originally conceived as a soundtrack to a Japanese equivalent of James Bond, it sees him pushing boundaries again whilst delivering what is his most accessible album yet. The new album includes the recent single 'Slapdash', described in the press as 'a compulsive throb of neon bright swirls'. On the other hand, stand out track 'Iceblink' is expected to be the new single, on the album it appears as an instrumental and as a full vocal, supplied beautifully by Inner City vocalist Paris Grey. All in all. Flatspin shows Ken on top form yet again."
