We gave it a B+

The cheeky gals of Cibo Matto achieve charm by being out of their time and culture. The central artistic equation: two understated Japanese-American musicians, Yuka Honda and Miho Hatori, plus clever and weird production, and a freewheeling variety of genres (techno-pop, ’70s pop-funk, metal, disco, new wave, even pop bossa nova), all visited on Stereotype A with the right degree of irony, craftiness, and stick-in-yer-head melodic zeal. It’s now, it’s then, it’s here, it’s there. It’s good. B+
