Boris Smile was formed in 2004 by A. While originally created as a solo project named after his young Russian neighbor, it quickly became a band with a rotating door of musicians. Boris Smile released their first full-length record entitled Chapter I in the summer of 2007. The album follows Chung’s personal experiences in high school, documenting the angst, self-doubt, and absurdity of youth.

Boris are certainly a creative little group, with an extremely extensive back catalogue only going back ten or so years. One can be sure that after so many releases in such a short span of time Boris would dry up creatively" In short terms, no. It is a fair statement to say that Boris have never made the same album twice. From their early drone material to their ambient masterpiece Flood and more presently, their fuzzed-out rock sound, Smile shows that Boris have not only reinvented their sound but have also kept remnants of the past.

Smile (2008) by Boris. Labels: Diwphalanx Records. Genres: Psychedelic Rock, Noise Rock  . Album (Studio full-length).

Ah Boris, that Japanese juggernaut that has released no less than 18 albums since their inception in 1992; for many years, the Japanese trio was an underappreciated - indeed largely ignored - group that explored virtually all dimensions and terrains of feedback-drenched stoner, drone, psychedelic, noise, and thrash metal on its own terms.

Underrated masterpiece for sure. To understand this mess of an album you first have to understand where Boris has been up until this point. They started their career in the doom drone genre. Over fifteen years, they worked their way through sludge, post rock, stoner rock, and even punk several times over. They were at a point in their career where they were looking for something entirely new. In 2006 Boris teamed up with Michio Kurihara to tackle psychadelic music with the creation of the acclaimed but obscure Rainbow. After that they teamed up again to make this record. As you can tell by the album's unique casing, this music is much less straightforward. It feels more like a journey than it does a collection of songs. It will take you a multitude of wild places that most metal bands would never dare to go. In the end though, its a fun and memorable collection and if you have an open mind (and a nice stereo) you'll have yourself a time. The three standouts for me are the whacked-out Message, the emotionally compelling Flower Sun Rain, and the booming nihilistic Untitled.

Oh Boris, why are you amazing? I mean honestly, who else can kick ass so relentlessly? Whether they're making doom dirges or guitar freak-out sessions, Boris sound cooler in ten minutes than most bands do over the course of their carrer. Smile has recieved a lot of negative feedback which I can't understand. I'd pick Smile over Pink any day. I own both the Japanese and US vinyl versions of Smile and I think that each has certain cuts that are better than the other, so mixing and matching is a must. Flower Sun Rain is Summer 2008 as music for me. No song more fully epitomizes sunsets, lucy in the sky, and heartbreak like Flower Sun Rain. Michio Kurihara's guitar on the US mix soars like a comet, leaving trails of fire in its wake. BUZZ-IN and Laser Beam bring the energy early on, but things slow down for the surf rock meets DMT, acid explosion that is My Neighbor Satan. And just so you know they're still as heavy as anyone, Boris team up with Stephen O'Malley for a black-hole jam which drones on for 20 minutes.
