GACKT – Stay the Ride Alive

Filed under: GACKT — solarblade @ 3:01 am

Track Listing

  1. Stay the Ride Alive
  2. Stay the Ride Alive (Classic Edit)
  3. Stay the Ride Alive (Instrumental)

1. Stay the Ride Alive

Why is that I found myself really liking Stay the Ride Alive a lot?  Being another one of those Kamen Rider songs, I was happily enjoying this a whole lot more than that last release “The Next Decade”.  This song just feels epic and GACKT’s vocals are pretty radiant with the heavily string/guitar based arrangement.  Pretty good song overall

2. Stay the Ride Alive (Classic Edit)

Yes, by now everyone should know that Kamen Rider singles never have true B-sides, all they have are instrumentals based on the main song and that’s the case once again here with Stay the Ride Alive.  Now, it’s a classical rearrangement filled with horns, strings, and piano.  It actually reminds me of KH music, but it could just be me. 

 

 

Seems like GACKT is getting back to releasing solid music especially with “Setsugekka -The end of silence-/ZAN” and then this was great.  Even though Kamen Rider is avex owned and even the single is avex-made which means that it won’t be making its way onto a GACKT album anytime soon.  Still, maybe since it is the 3rd Kamen single, we might get something out of this in an album, but I wouldnt hold my hopes high for that.  Stay the Ride Alive is my favorite within those 3 singles, it just sounded great. OH YEA HOORAY FIRST 2010 RELEASE, REVIEWED!
