The Celebrity Cafe zieht vergleiche mit ELO und Folk:
The early tracks on Lighght, notably "The Ballad of Mr. Steak" and "Carry On Phenomenon", augment the pop immediacy of his previous songs with heavier, synthesized dance rhythms to create upbeat violin music not dissimilar from some of the later releases by Electric Light Orchestra. [..] Closing songs "Hahaha" and "Fantasia" are great demonstrations of Ishibashi's skills as an orchestral arranger. Delicate vocals float over intricately woven musical textures that combine plucked strings and synths to deeply immerse you in the fantasies in his head. With tracks like these, Kishi Bashi once again uses folk music to help us escape to beautiful, imaginary worlds of pure emotion, even if just for a few minutes.
