Just an audience applauding….Is that it? Yep! There’s so many of them too. Whatever, let’s just move right on with the next track.
2. Ippiki Ookami Ron
Damn, what a hard song we’ve been led into. Miyavi is straining his voice on purpose and what a surprise for the 1st song. There’s a melody in the song which was pleasant to hear above the furious guitar playing. There’s somewhat of a tribal sound to it which sounds pretty darn cool too. What a nice 1st track.
3. Eccentric Otona Byou~Kudo Gaki ver.~
Miyavi speaks a bit before the mish-mash of sound comes in. It does sound a little like the previous song which I guess wasn’t too bad. Though the chorus is pretty catchy and in your face for sure! I love the furious sound overall, awesome song.
Yeah, you know what, the intrumentals suck and aren’t even long in the first place, I didn’t really hear what was going on but I guess it was put in for aeshetic value.
5. Aa, Kanashiki Kana Yatoware no Mi no Blues
miyavi, stop playing with your cell phone, lol. Then some beatboxing starts up and we enter an acoustic track. I’m surprised that this would’ve been on this album. miyavi sounds pretty good not screeching across his songs. He’s created a catchy beat with it and does his signature chuckle. Then the chorus comes and here we are with screechy miyavi….oh well. Still one of the golden moment of the album.
6. Coo quack cluck -Ku Ku Ru~Oresama ver.~
A very grungy and dirty song, Coo quack cluck is a slower rock track but sounds pretty weird too. I’m pretty sure this was the easiest song to create. The chorus is a bit dependent on the beat and I kinda was a little turned off by it. Still, as one of the songs that did get a PV, it was just as dark.
10 seconds of wasted time of motorcycles starting up….though it does lead to…
8. Joushou Gaidou
His strongest song off the album is in this powerhouse of a rock song. It’s like crazy but still has a great melody to it. miyavi sounds great in his deep voice and then he hits this anger voice and it’s awesome. Everything is blaring and just wowzers, it definitly made the instrumental before it useful too.
9. Shikenkan Baby
Then it fades away to a more slower hard rock track. It’s got a continuous beat and even has a good instrumentation. What really caught me off guard is the repetition of some phrases. It’s a little messy but after a few listens I got used to it. The chorus is pretty hardcore too if you ask me.
10. Ossan Ossan Ore Nanbo
The next song is a shortie. Still it doesn’t let up on the powerful sounds and has some synths in it??? I was pretty surprised but the song was just so busy and full of stuff and I really couldn’t pay attention to just one thing. I think it’s messier than “Shikenkan Baby” so watch out for the song. What’s up with the ending though WTF….
11. Ashita, Tenki ni Naare ~Doshaburi ver.~
Oh wow, I like this song, it’s devoid of any hard rock feelings and we’re left with a happy, acoustic leveled track. It’s pretty nice to listen to after all that loudness. It’s a simple track really with piano too. Hehehe, giddyness all over.
Dangit, not another one, I didn’t really catch on with this one either luckily it’s the last one of the album…I can’t believe Miyavi would just have this many to begin with.
13. Tom to Jerry
Obviously an homage to the cartoon classics, Tom to Jerry was another standout track with a march-like rock arrangement. It’s a more regular rock track but it’s got some great things going for it. miyavi actually ad-libs too which is more or less a surprise to me since I haven’t heard it since “Girls, be ambitious” of last album.
14. Requiem (Acoustic Version)
Before going solo, Miyavi was part of Due le Quartz, a visual kei band. Miyavi decided to go acoustic with one of their songs and really, I’ve never heard the original. This one was just unusual at the beginning with Miyavi just sounding off. The beat comes in for a bit and he gets real loud, then suddenly gets quiet, it’s just all over the place…ick.
Song of Avoidance
What the hell, this album was definitly a step down from Gagaku, I mean for one all his best singles weren’t even on this album only two made it and were remade. POP IS DEAD and Jibun Kakumei should had its place here. Failure not adding them. Still a lot of the new songs were pretty good. Too many instrumentals though icky.
