Kuchizuke -Shiki TV Size- (Shiki Edition Bonus Track)
I know I haven’t been following BUCK-TICK for long, but I actually enjoyed this is a bit more than “Dokudanjou Beauty”. It felt really different hearing a more darker song from this J-rock band. There’s something about Atsushi’s vocals that sound angry and pretty epic singing this. I was surprised they didn’t explode in the chorus, but it’s a small setback because I enjoyed most of the song anyways. Good song!
Taking things a little bit slower, Yougetsu sounds really depressing and very emo. Then again you’re talking about BUCK-TICK so it’s not a surprise at all. Now, Atsushi’s vocals are pretty much filtered through the entire song. Now I’m not fully deep within the V-kei community, but even I know that this song is just a little too boring of a song for me. There’s just a lot of bad connections in the song and just seemed made in 5 minutes…like it’s nothing to shake at.
Being the 2nd and final single for the “RAZZLE DAZZLE” era, BUCK-TICK did it good with Kuchizuke and I ended up liking it quite a bit. There’s just something about it that was really good and being a tie-in to an anime, that could be the reason why I liked it alot. Yougetsu however, kind of just bombed all around and I hope it doesn’t make the album’s cut.
