roberthardin Every time I hear a new album by Haco—and my listening experience started with After Dinner—I am completely in awe of a voice that gets more expressive every time! I'll just add that the production on Forever and Ever is amazing too! It's such a great blend of avante garde and ambient. Favorite track: It's Too Dazzling.

- Forever and Ever - フォーエヴァー・アンド・エヴァー ずっとずっと そこに 居られるんだと 感じていたい ずっとずっと そこで 笑ってるんだと 願っていたい ずっとずっと そこで 肩寄せあって 過ごしていたい ずっとずっと そこに 眠ってからも 信じていたい   空はあいかわらず蒼く 風は髪をなでていく 水は川となりせせらぎ 土は生きしものを育て   I wanna stay there forever and ever I wanna laugh there forever and ever I wanna live together there forever and ever I wanna believe after sleeping there forever and ever   空はあいかわらず蒼く The sky is still blue 風は髪をなでていく The wind caresses my hair 水は川となりせせらぎ The water murmurs together with the river 土は生きしものを育て The ground nurtures living things   ずっとずっと そこに 居られるんだと 感じていたい 感じていたい

- It's Too Dazzling - イッツ・トゥー・ダズリング   It's too dazzling to see It's too dazzling to touch It's too dazzling to wipe away It's too dazzling to fly away   Throw the ring, ring, ring of light To the sea   まぶしすぎて 見えない まぶしすぎて 届かない まぶしすぎて 消せない まぶしすぎて 飛べない   Throw the ring, ring, ring of light   海へ 光のリング 投げて   Now you're smiling Now you're smiling Now you're smiling Now you're smiling

- Lemon and Ice - レモン・アンド・アイス   昼下がりに ひとかじりの 檸檬 にアイス   冷やした水に ひとしぼりの 檸檬 に愛す   奥歯にきしませて ひとかけらの氷 檸檬 にアイス   舌先をしびれさせる ハイなき・ぶ・ん 檸檬 に愛す   すっぱい想い出も 溶けだしてくるよ 檸檬 にアイス   つぶつぶの記憶も はじけ出すように 檸檬 に愛す   カリフォルニアの空から 飛んできた 檸檬 にアイス   黄金の皮はぴかぴか 宝石みたいな 檸檬 に愛す   檸檬 檸檬 檸檬 ___________________________________ - Lemon and Ice - Early in the afternoon I bite into a lemon and ice   I love to squeeze a lemon in cold water   A sliver of ice creaks on my back teeth lemon and ice   The tip of my tongue is numb and I feel high from the lemon that I love   All of your sour thoughts fade away with lemon and ice   And the lumpy memories pop up from the lemon that I love   Flying across from the California sky, lemon and ice   The golden peel shines like a jewel from the lemon that I love   Lemon Lemon Lemon

- Day, Month, Year - デイ・マンス・イヤー   Day, month, year   まだ見ぬあなたへ まだ来ぬあなたへ   花びらの重なる その奥に 密の味を   羽音たてて待つ ミツバチのように   まだ見ぬあなたへ まだ来ぬあなたへ   扉の鍵穴から なかを覗きみる   Day, month, year   森に寝ころび 草間のなかで夢を   瞳の蕾よ 肺をやぶって咲く花 いつかそのときを   Day, month, year   会えるかもしれないよ 訪れるかもしれないよ 会えるかもしれないよ 訪れるかもしれないよ   いつかそのときを   Day, month, year ___________________________________   - Day, Month, Year -   Day, month, year   To you who I don't see yet To you who hasn't come yet   Like the hum of a honeybee waiting to   taste the secrets  within the overlapping petals   To you who I don't see yet To you who hasn't come yet   Peeking inside through the keyhole    Day, month, year   Lying down in the forest dreaming in the grass   Your pupils are like buds Some day, some time     Your lungs will burst  and the flowers will bloom   Day, month, year   Maybe I can meet you Maybe I can visit you Maybe I can meet you Maybe I can visit you   Some day, some time   Day, month, year

Enveloped 04:01
- Enveloped - エンヴェロープド   数千の刃が降りそそいでも はじきだすよ   蛍光の真綿にくるまれて あびていくよ   闇から蠢きあって みえなくても   光はそこまで そこまで 差しこんできて   きみをつつみ つつみ つつみこんでくれるさ   ねえそこまで めいっぱい感度をあげて   ___________________________________   - Enveloped -   Even if a shower of swords rained down, it would spring out.   Sealed in fluorescent silk floss, it would bask in the light.   Even if it was wriggling out of the darkness and you couldn't see it.   The light keeps pouring in until that point until that point   It will envelop you Envelop You will be enveloped   Just increase your sensitivity until that point

- Because I Got Hacked - ビコーズ・アイ・ガット・ハックド   Because I got hacked what should I do?   Then you got hacked tonight   Because he got hacked what should he do?   Then she got hacked tonight   spam spam spam watch out watch out watch out   Because I got hacked such a morning   Then we got hacked what should we do?   Because she got hacked such a morning   Then he got hacked what should he do?   spam spam spam watch out watch out watch out   Because I got hacked what to do?   Because we got hacked what to do? what to do? what to do? what to do?

- Let It Take Me - レット・イット・テイク・ミー   ただながれにまかせて もうとめられやしない   うかぶ竹舟のように もうさからいはしない   ただながれにのっていく もうふりかえりはしない   うかぶ木の葉のように もうくやんだりはしない   ただながれにゆられて もうおびやかされはしない   うかぶ泡の虹のように もうはじかれはしない   ただながれにゆだねて もうまよったりはしない   ただながれにまかせて もうとめられやしない   ただながれにのっていく もうふりかえりはしない   ただながれにゆられて もうおびやかされはしない ___________________________________   - Let It Take Me -   I'll just let the current take me I won't try to stop it   Like a bamboo ship floating I won't go against the tide   I'll just ride the current and never look back   Like the leaf of a tree floating I won't regret anything   I'll just let the current sway me and I won't feel threatened   Like a rainbow of bubbles floating I won't burst   I'll just give myself over to the current and I won't get lost   I'll just let the current take me I won't try and stop it   I'll just ride the current and never look back   I'll just let the current sway me and I won't feel threatened

"前衛ポップ・バンド、アフター・ディナーのメンバーとして知られるハコが、10年以上にわたって蒐集してきた素材を活かして作り上げた作品。心和む静謐なエレクトロニカから不穏な感情を煽るシュールなノイズまで、さまざまな電子音の上に素朴なメロディと歌が乗る、不思議な音のポップ・アート。" (CDJournal, JP, 2011)
