Tatsuro Yamashita – Silent Screamer [Japan]

Ooooooh, this be nasty. From the opening drum break you expect this track to get you going and it doesn’t disappoint. The eruption into the guitar solo is 80s rock heaven, and these guitar licks have got more bite than a gecko with rabies. The drum break half-way through the track is accompanied by some phenomenal slap bass work – perhaps signifying a change, or some sort of mysterious progression in the song?

WRONG. Even more guitar solo. Rock on Tatsuro.
