1. HALLOWEEN PARTY
Wow, what a cast of people chosen for this song! I mean you have both members of VAMPS, Anna Tsuchiya, Kanon Wakeshima, Tomoko Kawase in both her solo monikers, yasu, DAIGO, KYO, Tatsurou, Aoki and various other musicians (which I’ll talk about in the next track). This track is just dark and fitting for the occasion for sure. A lot of different vocals and tones that it is messy but in the way that only Halloween would deem it perfectly fitting. Now seeing as hyde has the most vocals, it was great hearing familiar voices as well like all of the above (especially the female singers). The hook/chorus of the song eerily sounds like Tomoko’s own “Lollipop Candy♥BAD♥girl” but still this song is a great song and everyone that took part (even the secondary guys in the PV should get a pat on their back for this awesomeness).
2. Penalty Waltz
So for K.A.Z, Hitsugi, RINA, Aki, and whoever else plays instruments in the group, they get their own instrumental track and it’s a pretty interesting waltz. It’s funny to see how it moves and then get interrupted by sounds of monsters breaking things and making sounds. I mean it doesn’t stick as strong as “HALLOWEEN PARTY” did, but I guess it was to make up for the people that didn’t sing on the main track so I can understand why this is here.
Wow, HALLOWEEN JUNKY ORCHESTRA is a unique and quite awesome of a group filled with known stars in the rock field. This single was pretty awesome and definitely is colorful and bizarre and just all kinds of random. I think another song would’ve been a lot better than Penelty Waltz, but I understand why it’s there….I hope they can do something in the future and not be a one-time thing.
