I didn't say look at the photos, I said listen to the music. ;-)

I think Masami Akita is one of the very few people producing
unbelievable music while working in the context of a popular artist.
Yes he's probably moody and dramatic, and yes his site is devoted to
protesting KFC... but his music is spectacular in my opinion. He shows
a very strong understanding of sound on an intuitive level I believe.
