Review by Anna Maria Stjärnell

Japanese band ATP have reached success in their home land and are now trying their luck abroad.

They have an energetic rock sound, powered by singer Taata’s unique voice. On this album Taata sings in both english and japanese with interesting results. Songs like “If You Ever” are good enough to be measured against any band you could care to mention. The softer “My Old Green Martian baby” has appealingly surreal lyrics and a great melody.

“Deranged Angel” is a refresingly original record with plenty of spirit.

Comment: ATP’s deranged angel is Must Have for any alternative rock fans. Taata has Bork like ethereal voice but more edge( Distinctive may be the right word ). The band lead by hard driving guitar creates many MOMENTS within a song. They sounds like they know what they are doing. And they sound ORIGINAL…
