Rock 'n' roll that's as good as it gets

By SIMON BARTZ

OK, the best album of 2002 goes to a bunch of teenage upstarts from Merseyside, England, but the place to be was underground in Japan. on and on....................

Yeah well, he interviewed and reviewed albums from many of those Japanese bands, so it's not surprising they're on his list.

Yes, if you limit your taste to the punk and straight edge genres.

The artists he mentions are better known outside of Japan then in Japan itself.
