I've got an original pressing from back in the day, but still awesome to see this being reissued-

Really hoping they reissue Boku Mo Wakaran, which has been on my wantlist since forever.

very good news ! I love this one ! back in the time I ripped my friend's cd version and listened to it a lot.

also I remeber I sampled bits of it for making jingles for my local radio in early 2000's (and 20 years later those jingles are still on air up there 🙂

i will order the LP for shure

Good news. The 2nd disc of my original copy got snapped at a party not long after it first came out. 

At least you had it in use, rather than most record collectors.

Thought I'd give this another listen to see if it's any better than I remember from 20 years ago.

Short answer... No. Still can't really see the appeal and that singing on the first track is dreadful.

Ya know, I’ve always kind of thought that but never put it into words here. I must be missing something...

that aside-- it sounds great. on the included poster (which i loved!) boggy writes that he recorded this album in a week on a laptop and a pair of shitty headphones. and that it felt like a pure and cathartic artistic expression. I believe him. and I have a huge amount of respect (and envy) for an artist to crank out a masterpiece in a moment of inhuman inspiration and have it sound this good. listening to the record again it has not aged. or it's aged a lot but it doesnt matter. thank you boggy for synthesizing dnb, arcade music, bedroom braindance and general goofiness into a work greater than the sum of its parts. it's japanese, it's polish, its american, its british, its everything in between. nihon de homuresu. thank you bogman
