to write a review


Good music, but fails to deliver on its promise for English-speakers
For something that touts itself as the best Japanese lesson in the galaxy, this album teaches you nothing if you're trying to learn Japanese.

The second half of the album, which focuses on teaching English to Japanese-speakers, is very helpful and useful, breaking down syllables and explaining phrase by phrase how to speak the language, but the first half of the album, which is meant for English-speakers interested in learning Japanese, is totally useless as a learning tool. Unlike the latter half of the album, the first half does not break down syllables and phrases and pronunciation at all and somehow expects you to pick up on what Joe is singing at breakneck pace. The music itself is good and fun, but for an English-speaker trying to learn Japanese you spend $13 for five tracks that don't even live up to the album's promise of being able to use it to learn Japanese.

Compare these useless five tracks to the latter half of the same record, or even to the Hats On! record Joe did for Japanese people learning English, and it's insulting how much better and more helpful all of that stuff is for Japanese speakers compared to how utterly disappointing and unhelpful the five English tracks are on this record. I'm a big Joe Inoue fan, but this was a waste of my money and I regret my purchase.
