School Food Punishment: “Futuristic Imagination”

School Food Punishment make like Commando on “Futuristic Imagination” and ruin the bad guy’s shit. The villain here is the ever-present J-Pop Ballad, oversaturating Japan’s pop charts and taking violin strings hostage as the unfortunate hallmark of the sound. This dreadfully named four-piece throw a steam pipe through the ballad’s chest and saves the violin, freeing it from the pits of cheez and making it the pivotal sound of “Futuristic Imagination.” This song is basically a J-Pop Ballad at the speed of rock, all the emotion of a slower song oozing out of those strings and those vocals while also sounding completely enjoyable. And I love the clicking noise just running underneath part of this track. School Food Punishment reinvigorate the ballad here, and in a just world would end up like John Matrix…a hero worthy of a lot of praise.

  1. This is so good, but so polished it sounds like it would be an OP to an anime theme song.

  2. It is, Eden of the East.
