The Gazette- PLEDGE PV[Full]


My thoughts:
1. Ruki you're gorgeous, I love you!
2. I've said this before and I'll probably have to say it again, Kai needs more face time!
3. This is a beautiful song and I'm glad The Gazette is putting out songs over 3 and half minutes again.
4. I'm not sure who directed this but lacking creativity much?


Special thanks to MasamuneHiro for posting this since everything by these guys gets deleted by PSC on youtube.

Review: Screw- Duality Album


Tracklist:
1. Dual Assault
2. 刹那の刻 (Setsuna no koku)
3. DUALITY
4. Cursed Hurricane
5. ファム・ファタール (femme fatale)
6. false dawn
7. Lower World
8. ANCIENT RAIN
9. INFERIORITY COMPLEX
10. M.R.T
11. Jail breaker
12. rosary
13.as cold as marble

Since Duality is a whole album, I'm going to shorten up my review a bit and just give a general overview or else this review would go on forever :P
I'm going to be honest and say right up front that this album seems uncharacteristically drab for Screw. I'm used to hearing more power in their music so, in that aspect I'm left slightly dimayed. And I feel like the majority of these songs don't have enough individuality to stand on their own or to really make the album itself stand out as a whole. Not to say that there are no good songs on Duality, if I were to say that I would be lying.
So, first off Dual Assault is your basic intro song, it is not bad but I wouldn't really say there is anything particularly great or special about it. With that said I'm going to move right into Setsuna no Koku, which I really like, it has great rythm and catch and in fact I'm going to go out on a limb and say this is a better song than the title track, Duality. Which by the way is a decent song but I must admit I was disappointed when I watched the PV of this. The drum and bass lines are pretty in your face without being overpowering and I enjoy the chorus but this song really needs more energy......in the vocals perhaps? Cursed Hurricane (which was previously released on the Cursed Hurricane single) is reminiscent of Duality and the only distinguishing factor for me is the guitar line. Other than that I don't hear anything that really sets it apart. Femme Fatale on the other hand is an exceptional song! I'm intrigued right away because I haven't heard a lot of electronic sounding music from Screw, and this has an almost dance-able beat. Femme Fatale is the only song so far that I can really hear Screw's spunk? heart?
Next is False Dawn which draws me in with a great intro but again is oddly similar to Cursed Hurricane and the like. It seems that Screw may be be stuck in this mode. Since I really have nothing else to say about this one I'm just going to move right on to the fantastically beautiful Lower World. This song is on the slower side and a bit down tempo but wow! is it pretty. The piano, instrumentals and vocals are all so smooth and the guitar solo fits in perfectly. And this moves into another good song Ancient Rain (which was also previously released on the Ancient Rain single), while I do like this song, I feel this is terrible song placement. Obviously if you put two songs that are so similar right next to each people are going to compare them. And there really is not enough variation between the two songs that would enable them to be placed so closely together. Tossing that aside for the moment I do enjoy Ancient Rain. It is well put together, and flows nicely, again the guitar solo here is superb (YAY! for Kazuki, as always your playing is amazing).
Moving into Inferiority Complex, the intro somehow reminds me of Sadie's Ice Romancer, am I the only one who thinks so? And this is a decent song, I like the falsetto Byou goes into, as always I like to hear bands switch it up every once in a while, also I like the slower part of this song (about 2:52 in).
Wow! M.R.T. I'm not sure what I'm supposed to say about you. Ummm......I almost really dislike this.
I should say I'm on the verge of disliking this while also on verge of really, really liking it. I haven't quite made a decision yet, but I think I'm leaning towards like. Ha. This song has me confused, perhaps that is a good thing. The next song however, Jail Breaker is I'm sure a good song if it were listened to by itself but again this is awful song placement. This is basically a continuation of M.R.T, the two are practically one in the same, minus a few unique pieces here and there on the part of M.R.T. 
Because I see that coupling similar songs seems to a trend for this album I decided to listen to the last two songs, Rosary and As Cold as Marble, together. And I'm correct the trend has continued, however I feel that this time around there is enough difference in the two that they can carry their own even placed together. I really enjoy both of these songs, pretty while still staying upbeat and As Cold as Marble even has more of a hard rock guitar/bass line while Rosary is softer. Again, I applaud  Kazuki for the excellent guitar solos, if I'm leaving out Manabu I don't mean to, I guess I'm being a bit presumptuous in giving Kazuki all the credit, but am I wrong in saying the solos normally go to the lead guitarist? Either way the guitar playing is fantastic.
The album was not a complete disappointment and I'm glad to see that the drab undistinguishable songs are off set by some great ones. So, overall I give Duality a B.

Alice Nine: Gemini Announcement Accidental....


On NicoNico Douga, Alice Nine are airing their regular program " Alice9 channel" once a month. Every time they are doing a number of exciting projects, yet during the last airing a rather unusual incident erupted.


Unintentionally Saga revealed the album release which is scheduled for February next year. Now was this brave? Manly? Saga-like? (laughs)


The next morning it could be read on Shou' s twitter, who had not taken part in the program that time, nor had been online to watch the program "I slept like a stone and when I woke up...the NEW album had been announced. (*^o^*)"
It seems that even the band members had been surprised, (laughs)


Well, and here are the information on the album so far.
The main track will be a great work of 13 minutes in length, so please look forward to this release!


Title: "GEMINI"
Release Date: 2011/02/09
[First Press Limited Edition CD+DVD] TKCA-73622 3,780Yen

15 seconds isn't much to judge a song by but I hope the full length song is better.

Plastic Tree- Mirai Iro (Future Colors) PV



Ryutaro Arimura you are gorgeous!!!
Seriously though, I'm a GIGANTIC Plastic Tree fan so I'm really looking forward to the Mirai Iro single that will be released on the 15th of December. I've never heard anything by Plastic Tree that I didn't like and if this song is a tip off to the rest of the single I doubt I will be let down.

Para:noir- the RED in the monochrome PV [preview]


Is it just me or is Akane's ( the vocalist) look a little reminiscent of Ruki's look in the Before I Decay music video. Then again maybe it is just me.

Lolita23Q- Whte Blade PV [Preview]


PV Preview for White Blade, the title track off their new single also to be titled White Blade, which will be available on the 22nd of December, 2010.

New Album: Alice Nine


Great News! Yet another Alice Nine album is to be released on the 9th of February, 2011. Unfortunately other than the album title, which is Gemini, not much else is known about this release.
Alice Nine has been putting out singles like they're going out of style, and trust me I'm totally cool with that and I'm looking forward to whatever they bring. But I wouldn't mind if they changed it up a bit on this next one.

W-inds- Addicted to Love PV

For many of you I'm sure that this is old news but truthfully I haven't checked in on W-inds for quite sometime and had no idea they had released something new. This MV is from the Addicted to Love single that was released on June 23, 2010. This is quite different from their previous work and their look has evolved quite a bit as well. I'm really liking Keita as a blond, actually they all look really good. As for the song, I've only listened to it once, but it sounds pretty good.

NEXX- NEO BLACK (Single)


This is NEXX's first single which was released on the 10th of November. Promising.

Tracklist:
1. Neo World Listen Here
2. crackpot


Funny enough there is also a Swedish pop band with the name NEXX, and when I first watched this music video I seriously thought it was a joke (so don't be confused if you come across this at some point) but I'm also ashamed to admit the song is kind of catchy. If interested you can WATCH HERE.

Screw- Duality PV [Full]

The Gazette- PLEDGE PV [Preview]



Ugh! I hate 15 second previews! If this is supposed to get me all excited, it totally doesn't work. I'm excited anyway but that is just because it is the Gazette, but no other reason. I really hoping for some decent length songs on the PLEDGE single, I think their new label is soooo ripping us off!

LAYZis Afraid PV

LAYZis Afraid PV from their upcoming mini-album REWIND (or REMIND?), not sure which.


 
Well....the guitar player (Shunsuke) is pretty fuckin' awesome, and I like the look of Show (the vocalist). As for the PV itself .........Eh, let's just say it is definitely lacking.

Tracklist:
1.finale [not in preview]

3. afraid
4.Marry

This sounds decent enough to check it out but it doesn't catch my attention enough for me to be excited.
 

Merry- Yakou Preview


This preview is too short!! Boo!
But I'm hoping the Yakou single, to be released on the 1st of December, will be as good as their last (Crisis Moment).

Lost Ash- overHORIZON Preview



overHORIZON is Lost Ash's third single release, available on January 19th, 2011 but this is the first time I'm hearing anything from them, I seem to be encountering this often lately, and all though this is a short sample I think they're definitely worth looking into.

New Look: Golden Bomber


Golden Bomber is soooo much fun! I love them to death! I hope this new look means some new music to look forward to.
 I do think it odd that I always find the drummer the most attractive even though I can't actually see his face. Ahhh well, what to do?

New Look: Moran

-OZ- -Lead PV [Full]




LEAD PV from -OZ-'s new album Rouge, which was released on November 10th.
I know didn't write a review for this release, like I had originally planned, and that is because I didn't really have anything good or bad to say about it. As for this song, I think it is decent, do I think it is as good as their older stuff? Not at all, but I can't hlep myself I always love -OZ-. Especially Natsuki, who by the way looks fantastic in this PV.

SuG- Crazy Bunny Coaster


SuG has announced that they will be releasing yet another album called Crazy Bunny Coaster (a maxi-single) on January 12th, 2011.

Ayabie- Parade PV (Preview)


This is the PV preview for Ayabie's first PV with Yumehito as the vocalist. It is really...not bad, I don't I find his voice as attractive as Aoi's but still not bad.

Ayabie- Virgin Snow Color -2nd Season- (Album Preview)



Ayabie's Virgin Snow Color -2nd Season- set to be released on the 1st of December!

The Kiddie- Steady PV



PV for Steady from The Kiddie's major debut album Brave New World, which is available on November 24th.

Kazuma Retires!!


Kazuma from Mannequin announced today that he would be retiring from the music scene.
The message is posted on his blog HERE

So.....yeah this pretty much sucks! I really like Kazuma's voice and was waiting to hear more from Mannequin, this is really a pity :(


SADS- Androgyny Insanity PV

 PV for Androgyny Insanity, one of the seven new songs to be released on SADS mini-album Lesson 2, available for sale on the 8th of December. The PV isn't bad but I think music-wise Disco was a better song. Never the less I'm looking forward to this album, I very happy to hear from SADS again.


SADS- Disco Album & PV


Tracklist:
1. Disco
2. Disco (Remix)
3. Vision
4. Sandy (new take)
5. ナイトメア (new take)




 To be honest I don't really find Kiyoharu very good looking (I mean I could see why one would find him attractive especially you know........if you had been drinking) but is it just me or is he super hot in this PV?!?!

Review: Alice Nine- Stargazer


Tracklist:
1. Stargazer
2. Shinkirou
3. Karma


Wahhh!! Ok, so this single is pretty great! I don't know why I thought I would get anything less from Alice Nine but I will gladly admit that my expectations for this single were way off base. This is one single that I am actually able to listen to all the way through over and over again, usually when going through an album or single I find one favorite and the rest of the songs are mostly sub par.
I had heard Stargazer several times since the PV came out two weeks ago, and like I said when I posted the video I had thought that maybe Alice Nine was caught in kind of a rut with their recent title track releases. Because of this I'm going to use their last two singles, Hana and Senkou, as a comparison for this single. I get almost the same feeling from all three of these songs, not that it is a bad thing, I actually really like all of these tracks and I would say I like Stargazer more than Senkou and a little less than Hana. Stargazer has a nice rythm and the whole song fits together well. And of course Hiroto's playing is magnificent and I adore Shou's held out vocals, well I love his voice anyway! The bass and drumlines really stand out in this song and I think that is a huge part of what makes this song flow so well.
Honestly, my very first thought on Shinkirou was that I wasn't going to like it because I'm really not too fond of the introduction, but I'm definitely glad I listened for a few more seconds or I would have really missed out.
Once the guitar line comes in I'm hooked. The song feels lighthearted to me and has a different sound than what I've heard from Alice Nine in the past. I love that they put a giutar solo in almost all of their songs I really don't think an Alice Nine song would complete without one. At least I would miss it! Also, it sounds like there is some background synthesizer action going on, and I enjoy how they fit that as an undertone to the music.
I have noticed a trend in the last three releases and perhaps it is just a trend for me but I always seem to find the third song on the single the most appealing (on Hana it was High and Low, on Senkou it was Solar Eclipse) and this single is no exception. I think that by far my favorite song on this single is Karma.  I absolutely love the guitar riff to this song, I can't get enough of it. I really enjoy the synchronized volume of the vocals. Where one side of the speaker is cut off momentarily and then the sound comes full blast again. This song actually reminds me the most of Alice Nine's older stuff, mostly because of the low growl-like vocals at about 38 seconds in. I wish this had been incorporated more into the song. And that is really my only complaint for  this whole album.
Yay!! for Alice Nine! This deserves an A+
