Shina Ringo was once known to belt out some pretty great Japanese rock with a glossy Shibuya edge to it. But whatever gloss there is seems to get smudged out with ragged melodies, unusual choices of composition, and an overall fiery confrontational edge. Ze-chyou Syuu is a 3 Cd set that contains live and studio cuts. Each Cd is a mini Cd with 3 songs on it. It may seem like a waste of packaging, but the design is pretty cool. Plus, I always loved this inside live photo that shows Shéna Ringo clutching her stomach and looking crazed while fans cheer on in the background.
