"Morita Doji inhabits a headspace somewhat similar to that of Nick Drake. While her life didn't end in tragedy (she simply retired and shunned the spotlight, which still gives her a strong mystique,) the sense of overwhelming melancholy ensures that fans of the one will find something to like in the other.
The similarities being what they are, Doji has one major difference: the sadness doesn't let up. Drake would occasionally find himself couched in sounds that let the light in, albeit only on the surface. Doji is relentlessly downbeat, emoting fear, sinister atmosphere, ghostly regret, and sadness, never emerging from the pitch black world she evokes.
Of course, that makes her work a love it or hate it proposition: nothing this intense will leave anyone unmoved. But as such, she is one of the great hidden treasures of Japanese music. No one has nailed any aesthetic more completely than she has, and the fact that it's immediately accessible (everyone from age 10 to 100 will know exactly where she's coming from in the first 30 seconds) makes a strong case for genius." - jrawk.com
