3 stars We can get drenched with PUNGO's music flood in PUNGO-ra box.

Directly we can realize what they had meant to do, especially through Yuriko's strong intention and inquisitive mind. Actually, I consider PUNGO project should be such as a battle among plays, musical viewpoints, and curiosity of all players. Why should they be disbanded after a year play? Suppose they could not help sinking themselves under remarkably tense situation ... This album "Waltz" is a compilation of their live material, and listening to this can easily notify us that there's less similarity among 14 tracks, except keen tension and overstimulated nerve through the whole album. Various sound essence can be in, and Yuriko's sharp-edged violin, dry-fruity accordion, painful piano, and unemotional voices ... all can be fit for every song and draw out the strong characteristic of every song. And Masami's freaky anarchy saxophone solo cannot be ignored of course. His backbone might be jazz music indeed, but he could make every song avantgarde by his funky kinky saxophone play - later he joined JAGATARA, a Japanese jazz-funk-rock project, and could upgrade their music skill, content, and soundscape ... feasibly.

Under any circumstances, we can understand their music theory cannot be categorized easily. Their seriousness, strict attitude, and tense plus tense condition for music ... obviously those were in their mind. Jazz, ethnic, avant, blues, tribalism, and rock - enjoy completely.
