I've fallen out of the habit of watching PVs, but decided to check out xaa-xaa's latest and it really held my attention. Now I've been on a MV/PV binge. Let's talk PVs! Share your favorites/least favorites/etc. new or old, j-jpop, v-kei, j-rock and k-pop (i guess) I loved the color and style of this MV as well as the song. I don't know how xaa-xaa does it every time. Kazuki is really expressive (well, at least when it comes to showing despair lol) It reminded me of another one of my favorite mvs by pentagon. I mean the art direction is just *chef's kiss* and speaking of bands who release their best mv just before they disband, SuG's SICK'S is one of my all time favorites
Since it's already 06/13 in Japan, discussion about The GazettE new album - NINTH can be open. For myself, I didn't bought the album. Maybe I buy it later digitally at least if it will appear on worldwide itunes. But I'm still thinking, because I'm not a fan perse. Album is digital available at: Amazon EUROPE, (FR DE ES...) (Amazon Japan and US don't sell it) iTunes Japan (on 06/20) So, what are your thought's about the album and why should someone support the band this time? If you bought the physically CD, what did you think of the packaging and the price in overall. Is the price the quality worth it? As for what I've listened out of the PV Falling I must say that it doesn't sound that band. But if is really enough to support a band I actually never support? I give it a longer thought. But it sounds much much better than their early years. The GazettE - Ninth review After 3 years, The GazettE finally drops out an FULL album again. This time they called their album Ninth and released it in 4 different types. I myself went for the digital version. I thought I started to like the GazettE after LEECH. But the releases after it couldn't keep me listing to them and I still think DIM was their best album, even if DIM also not really fit's my taste. So will this finally change with Ninth?! After all the guys used 3 years to drop an album with only 2 singles in between and just a best album to fill up the time. Let's give it a listen. 1 99.999 [1:17] *** Intro track, which has some heavy beats and some strange up words a bit of electronic military vibe. Which lead into the next song. 2 Falling -NINTH MIX - [3:48] ***** The song starts quietly with a nice melody soon filled into a heavy guitar beat with a nice speed up. clean and grunting vocal fits and leads each other perfectly. Ruki's way of singing is just stunning. All breaks fits, guitar/bass and drum fits each other 100%. A song which is easy to like. and the song also ends quietly which leads you into the next song. 3 Ninth Odd Smell [3:23] ***** Stars nicely with some drumming beat which will flow in some heavy guitar beats and a harsh voice scream, then it's leads in some clean singing and some harsh singing and goes to clean singing and so on. Which totally not get's annoying its in perfect harmony. Just yes please! 4 Gush [3:27] ***** This song reminds me of some older songs of them but still different when the song is playing? Ruki's voice starts electric but it fits totally the melody and will turn later in Ruki's usually voice. The beat of the melody is nicely heavy in the parts Ruki sings more calmly and a good keeping up beat when the song is wild. It keeps up nice speed. Also the more harsh voice it's totally lovely. It's very easy to listen until the end. But the song still ends abrupt in the more electronic kind of beat. as it's broken. 5 The Mortal 4:04 ***** Starts with a typical dark heavy VK growl (in a good way). However after about 40 sec the song totally get's calmly and you hear a beautiful voice singing, which leads slowly into more heaviness. Also a perfect song in harmony. Melody doesn't get annoying and is very easy to listen until the end. Ruki's voice is full of emotion. Maybe a bit to calmly for my own taste but yet it's damn beautiful! Get me a bit more of this kind of songs! 6 虚蜩 [3:47]***** This song also starts calmy intro already leads you into a damn master melody. Ruki's voice is calmy like a beautiful ballad way, but with a kind of rock sound melody behind. Also you can hear emotion in his voice. 7 その声は脆く [5:02]**** ballad, at bit too calmly for my taste. But 100% a very nicely song for people who really like calmly songs in this kind of style. The way of singing, Ruki does it really beautifully. And melody is also 100% in harmony. It's very easy to listen to the end. 8 Babylon's Taboo [3:35]**** Some parts really sound a bit of as I know it from someone. Marlin Manson or something? However, this is also a nice song, melody doesn't get annoying. Also this song is filled with a more dark feeling. 9 裏切る舌 [3:30] **** The melody I did hear somewhere before, maybe some pierrot taste? But it has a nicely up beat which I've heard more times. Still GazettE has nicly adopt it and put in some own taste. The high pitch voice of Ruki in this song is also nice. I also like that they don't slow down when Ruki is singing more clean but just playing with a nice up speed which keeps the song nicely speed up. 10 Two Of A Kind [4:00] *** The start and the heavy parts of this song is a bit similar to 裏切る舌. It's like a version 2 with just slightly changes. this song doesn't really give me a wow blew away feeling. But the song is in harmony. 11 Abhor God [2:58] *** Starts as a heavy metal song, nice guitar riffs good drumming behind, nice bass vibe. good grunting screaming voice. But melody is looping up. 12 Unfinished [3:51] ***** The last song of the album, the song starts nicely fast with a more happy rock pop beat, a song which stays more easy into your head and with surly a typical gazette sound. Also a kind of different singing Ruki but that's amazing. A totally different but a nice closing song for the album. Final Thoughts, After so many years, The GazettE finally released an album I fully like. And that never happened before. In these 3 years of releasing only 2 singles and a best album. The guys surely did put something together which is easy to like a truly master piece, no more annoying breaks, slowing too much down etc . I really would like to listen more to this kind of Gazette, because this is what I always hoped they would go to. Surely people will totally dislike this album, but if you want real quality and something real nice for the ears, something you really can call music, then this album will surly give you that. Tomorrow I gonna purcahse it on itunes if available to give the band a bit extra support! Hopefully their next releases will be as so good as this one!
