Electric Mole is the Dynamite Out of solo Ringo: everything sounds bests.

It's obvious why someone who doesn't like Ringo's jazzy side would prefer most things on EM but I'm not saying that they played a bad rendition Mayonaka, although that was my first impression back in the day, I just prefer the original.

Electric Mole's Mayonaka was pretty good I thought ? considering that there was no Tokyo Paradise Orchestra I think they did a pretty good rendition ?

I think you're crazy. Electric Mole is more jazzy than KSK and Mayonaka. Mayonaka is a horrible example of the "jazzy" Ringo since it's a ska song, not jazz. Phase 0/1 was praised when EM was released for being a perfect blend of rock and jazz.

Mayonaka's guitar solo is beastly.

I wasn't saying that Mayonaka is a jazz song but rather that I can't imagine those people that complain about her recent music to want to have anything to do with the original version of that song.

But, I do agree about that performance being a perfect blend of rock and jazz. I'm still really amazed at how they rearranged the KZK songs, I remember when I first heard KZK I was disappointed because I thought she could never perform most of those songs live. But, clearly, I didn't know her well enough back then =).

He could not have been a fan back then... so what?
He may have heard KZK before Electric Mole (like I did), and even if he wasn't really "In love" with the album, he could still be amazed at how they pulled it live, in Electric Mole.
What's your point Jihad?

Why? Even with the ska band it's more rock than Adult and Variety. It's classic Ringo.
