Kagami Star Arts
- Words: June Joseph
- Label: Frogman
Four years have elapsed since Kagami's last album, and it shows. As he shamelessly hops aboard the electro bandwagon, he's still carrying major disco filter and tired hard-house baggage. The only time he redeems himself is five cuts in on "2.27" and on the eighth track, "Perfect Storm." While these two techno offerings are decent fillers, they're sadly out of place on this paean to mediocrity. It's cold comfort that the tracks, despite their staleness, are really well produced. It's just that they're so indicative of the shite out there that you hardly care. Maybe in another four years Kagami will live up to his hype.
