Start of a new phase for JAM Projecf

Thumb Rise Again came at a time when Lantis clearly realized JAM Project's truly broad international appeal and, rather than having Kageyama Hironobu et al go in a certain direction, invested in them. Starting here, all of JAM's albums included American session musicians and internationally shot PVs to match (in this case, Thumb Rise Again's was shot in Los Angeles).

What you get here is a more ambitious and experimental JAM Project. At nearly eight minutes, with backing strings, Groundbreakers is nearly impossible to do live, but it is an impressive work that recalls their Victoria Cross album. You have the blood-pumping Thumb Rise Again and Samurai Party but also the more contemplative tracks like not just Groundbreakers, but Viva My Life and Long Way To Go.
