1. Buiikikaesu!!

We kick things off with this pretty kickass song.  Whenever there’s a cool bass line and cooler guitar riff, you know you have a great song altogether.  Daisuke-han’s interesting mix of rapping and screaming is very unique to the band IMO.  Also interesting note is that Nao, the drummer is singing the song as well which means everyone has singing abilities.  The song shows how much the band can do.

2. Zetsubou Billy

Most notable as the ending for the 2nd season of Death Note, Zetsubou Billy is so aggressive and very hardcore.  There’s an obvious mentality that the song is very angsty and angry.  After the 2nd chorus run-through they go into an interestingly slower part and the song goes more eviler.  Then all hell breaks loose when they say ~We are kira, My name’s Kira…etc.~  That’s was awesome and is a nod to a character in Death Note as well.  Epic song!

3. Kuso Breakin no Breakin Lily

Funny, how the song starts up with a music box and then gets kinda pop/rock.  Definitly a mood change from “Zetsubou Billy”.  It’s very fun and carefree, but when you least expect it, they get very metal and dark with Daisuke-han’s vocals which was so random for the song.  I love Nao’s voice when she finishes up the song.  I mean a drummer and a singer?  Totally gains respect points!

4. Louisiana Bob

Back into the aggressive stuff, It’s either more or less surprising because it’s just like the previous track but reversed.  There’s more of the angry stuff than the fun sounds.  The fun sounds actually is only the chorus.  I really like the drum solo and dark stuff.  Then there’s the singing that was so interesting and pretty darn cool.  I think I would have enjoyed more if it was more cleaner if you know what I mean.

5. Policeman Benz

I really enjoyed this track being so in your face and full of interesting bass lines.  I mean there’s a lot of screaming and not really anything decipherable.  Then the chorus gets a strong beat and it becomes something of like an anthem.  Oh my, Daisuke-han cusses like a sailor BTW which is funny hearing him saying ~Fuck~ over and over again.

6. Black¥Power G-Man Spy

I love the entrance for the song, I totally do.  Sounds sneaky and mysterious.  It seems like Ryo was trying his hands at rapping and it sounds pretty nifty.  To be honest this is Ue-chan’s song (the bassist)  There’s just a lot of moments for him and even the song seems so short.

7. Akagi

Oh, this song is fast and full of hard rhythms and some awkward moments from Daisuke-han.  I do like when things calm down for a little for Ryo’s line.  Then after a while his voice is filtered and the song goes into a march sound and then this guitar line happens that I remembered off a single when it was in it’s beta stage.  Still it is the shortest track off the album.

8. Kyokatsu

Drum starts the song up and then there’s some screaming before Daisuke-han’s uhm rapping I guess?  It’s also very angry and just has some great momentum even with the drums changing beats every so often.  The chorus has Ryo singing and he’s not such a bad singer, which is a good thing.  Then things became odd when I heard some things that sounded like “Buiikikaesu!!” which was surprising. 

9. Bikini Sports Ponchin

Another one of the tracks that I love the start of.  Then the lines became very scary sounding and Daisuke-han gets fast again and does various things like growling and squealing.  I think the song was for the awesome rhythms it had going for.  Every line had something new to it and was awesome.  Sadly vocally, I didn’t understand anything except for Nao’s line…which was still covered by the music.

10. What’s up, people?!

Literally, the first song I heard and it was the opening theme for Death Note.  The song has a great sense of rhythm and awesome lyrics.  I really like Ryo’s vocals as it is so fast and made sense.  Then, I guess the chorus is where the bass starts playing up.  The whole song was basically awesome, until the end.  Where it got so messy and just screwy…Still the rest is awesome.

11. Chu chu Lovely Muni Muni Mura Mura Purin Purin Boron Nururu Nero Nero

Like the title is so random and I have no idea what the hell it means.  It sounds funny and upbeat at first before Daisuke-han pops in because he makes the song more metal.  Nao’s solo lines sounds so friggin awesome.  Still the chorus is very repetitive because it’s the song title.  Nao’s says half of it and the rest of the group says the other half.  It doesn’t get too annoying because I do adore the song.  I want to say this is Nao’s song because she sings most of it anyways.

12. Shimi

The song is a slow hardcore song evident by the slow drumming and guitar riffs.  Then after the beginning it speeds itself of and Daisuke-han is going all over the charts on the singing.  OMG, another Nao solo?  Anything with her voice makes the song better.  Ryo though screams his ass off and then it goes back to the slow tempo again.  I have to say though I dont like the singing in this part.  Still it’s pretty good.

13. Koi no Megalover

This song being the final song is so random because it’s the first time I’ve heard synth in a MTH song.  Even then the song sounded so fun and totally unlike them.  Then it’s lead into the stuff I’m used to, but everyone is singing so fast that it’s hard to understand what they said.  I actually ended up liking the song for some reason that c’mon synth usage!

Song of Avoidance

  • Shimi

Buiikikaesu, to me is such a hardcore album.  I mean all the songs are pretty much metal in some way or another.  I do like how everyone plays more roles in this album than previous ones and had to be happy to see Nao singing a lot.  This album is one of their bests and it’s great to see alot of the songs that I know of appear
