Wow, what a whirlwind tour of someone pioneering just about every advancement in electronic music production for the last 20 years. It's like when you hear Within You Without you after I Wanna Hold Your Hand and you're like... wtf happened in music and culture in such a short time for these to be lined up next to each other?
Polyrhythm really does stand out tho. Before that you hear A+ drowning-in-harmonies bubblegum J-pop. Once you hit Polyrhythm though you're in completely uncharted territory
Natural Ni Koishite is one of those tracks that is completely 100% unlike any other song I've ever heard period. Tracks like that are my favorite of his where they're like an island in his career and you can hear elements of them elsewhere but that particular flavor and combination only happened once. The glitchy production and the insanely complex chord sequences occur elsewhere but the actual principles of the composition and that combination of the two are novel
