Review Text Orange Sunshine, the second album by influential Japanese punk-pop quartet Judy & Mary, follows on from debut album J.A.M. with its emphasis on simple, karaoke-friendly melodies and charismatic singer Yuki's squeaky vocals. In comparison to the group's debut, the balance of the Judy & Mary sound has shifted noticeably towards pop. The punk influence is still rooted more in the ramshackle '70s sounds of bands like the Undertones than the clean-cut buzzsaw guitars and tight harmonies of contemporary punk-pop, as on the ragged backing vocals of "Doushou" and the live favorite and album closer "Dynamite," but there is no doubt that Orange Sunshine is fundamentally a J-Pop album. Another progression from J.A.M. is in the quality of the songwriting, with "Radio" and the near-title track "Hello! Orange Sunshine" both solid pop tunes, and every track on the album is imbued with its own unique hook or structural conceit. With Orange Sunshine, the group increasingly reveal a talent for creativity and originality in their arrangements that gift the 11 tracks on the album with a diversity rarely approached by any of the band's legion of imitators, and arguably never bettered by Judy & Mary themselves. ~ Ian Martin
