"beautiful." is the third album from Fantastic Plastic Machine. It is the follow-up to "Luxury", as well as the first album after moving from
Readymade Recordsto avex trax. "beautiful." is generally regarded as one of his most critical works, signaling a maturation from his previous Shibuya-keistyle to a rich blend of house musicand '70sPhilly soul. The album took eight months to produce, taking Tanaka to such places as the legendary Sigma Sound Studios in Philadelphiaand New York City's Quad Studios. While at Quad Studios, Tanaka recorded songs with Hirth Martinezand jazz singer Bob Dorough.
