The mini-album consists of electro-music so, you won't find any ballads or mid-tempo songs. If you are a fan of ShuU's band KEEL, this is not the music you would expect to hear.

It's perfect for hanging out at night, for listening in your car or for a DJ session. It is also perfect for old girugamesh, Die Antwoord or Gorillaz fans. Since MR.8's music is not aimed for just rock music fans, but for a much bigger and general audience.

The opening theme of the mini-album is "HELLO". It starts with of what could be a mantra or a ritual refrain with oriental sounds followed closely by electronic music, that will lead the songs throughout the album. It is the kind of futuristic music that you would expect in a cyber-punk universe like the one of "Ghost in the Shell" which is attracting a lot of attention these days.

The next song, "TABOO", composed by ookuma "keito" kunio from WHITEHEAD, has a clear influence of Boom Boom Satellites' music. The 3rd track, "seven drunkers" is the first instrumental song. "tearless" was composed by Shin Kimura from ninja beats, a good friend of ShuU, who became worldwide famous after his music performance at a TEDx event. This is definitely of the most outstanding songs in the whole album, with catchy English lyrics and a mix of pop female vocals. It is the kind of songs you could expect to hear as an anime opening theme.
