    Also just found out that the "corona disinfectant" my mom sprays on our clothes, groceries, and packages that come into the house is literally just holy water with essential oils so feel free to nominate our family for the Darwin Awards 😤

    Seems like there's no stopping Kaya with the VK covers! Just yesterday he covered MALICE MIZER, and now a SHAZNA classic! Curious to see what he will sing next~

    I do not understand musically limiting yourself to one genre and I also don’t understand going out of your way to express you don’t like something to someone who clearly likes the thing. Do people expect to change others opinions on what they like? Stop trying to decide what other people should and shouldn’t like? Stop trying to dictate what is and isn’t good music? Just listen to what you like and talk positively about the things you like. If you don’t like it, why waste energy on it?

    A lot of people can't tell apart Japanese from Chinese or Korean but I'll never forget that one time someone asked me to "read the Japanese" on their hoodie and it was actually Hebrew

    KISAKI new CD "Nothingness Cage" release

    Sadly the guy is too well established in the VK scene, despite his shitty behavior. Imo it's not just that japan thinks differently of people like him, but guys like him have so much support behind their back they really can get away with a lot of shit. See also Marilyn Manson or Chris Brown. They too did some horrible, abusive shit and still have so many people cheering them on and excusing their acts. And this is why idolizing people, really any people, in the media and entertainment industry is wrong.

    In spite of the controversy, this CD appears to be part of some sort of livehouse relief series, probably to keep them afloat while they haven't been able to host events. Rock May Kan's tweet is worded like they will have other releases from different artists like this to follow.

    I am new to this website. Been listening to some old albums and watching live DVDs (mostly Gazette lol) and was looking for online discussions to talk about albums, songs and live performances. Also, I would like to chat about band/live culture in general. Not interested in talking about bandmen/their personal lives. I am originally from Europe, in my mid 20s currently living in Japan. よろしくねー

[2] To my ears, Full only pronounces "aki", not "banshuu", the full reading of "晩秋". Aki, the first kanji, has the same meaning. Don't know what to make of ban, which is nightfall, whether he meant it to be a lyrical idea guide, or just didn't sing it, or what. [3] The more common reading I've run into is, more or less, "all sorts/kinds/manner of". The first version I had was "complete deception" or "total trickery". Apparently all pronounced the same. Pick and choose your own meaning, here! [3] Another interpretation, I think, would be "reliant on cowardly lies". credits: newsoles As requested like a year ago!

    Rather enjoying this album. I prefer it to ANGELS mostly in the sense that it takes the more poppy/electronic experimentation that album had and runs further with it, whereas ANGELS tended to fall back into more safe, familiar-sounding territory quite a bit (BAD DREAM, Everything, Close to Me, etc all sound very similar to previous tracks they've put out). It also feels more tightly-themed than ANGELS, and having very strongly-themed releases is something I really like about the majority of THE NOVEMBERS discog in general. To be honest I felt rather down on THE NOVEMBERS post-Elegance. Hallelujah felt kind of like a glorified best-of album (all new songs, but the majority of them felt like stuff they'd explored more in-depth in previous releases) and TODAY was pretty weak IMO, but these last two releases have both been pretty good.

    I am very late to the party but since i listened to this album yesterday for the first time (2 times as of now) i wanna give my brief opinion as well. Imo definitely still album of the year contender. The Only band they need to worry about is DEXCORE with their 1st full length. I only can say what an AMAZING album. Lots of variety and i think the rerecorded vocals for their 2 previously released singles are at least as good as the originals - really couldn't choose which version i like more. But i don't see where the guitars sound repetetive... You get a lot variety here. From the songs where the other members overtake vocals i have to say their guitarist was pretty nice and Issei definitely wins the cake. He sounds quite raw at some parts but he could easily also switch to full vocalist at any time with his current potential. Uta definitely tried but compared to their other members i would never see him becoming a full time vocalist in case he would like to - still very nice hearing him. * The only thing which kinda irritates me *and i think its kinda strange that no one pointed it out yet...* is that the vocal pattern in アソビ i totally heard them before. I even got the "original" straight in me head but for the hell of it i can't think of the bands name where i heard it before... Anyway as expected an outstanding 10/10 album for me. * Now i finally remembered the song which the vocal patter from アソビ reminded me... It's from the 1st song of the 1st live limited maxi single from -真天地開闢集団-ジグザグ - 愛シ貴女狂怪性. But now that i figured that out i gotta say the similarities are SO SMALL that it for 99% can't be intenional if it is not even just me making things up.^^° Although it would be pretty interesting to know what other people think about it...

    I feel you 100% on this. As an African Descendant of Slavery, I've experienced similar situations. Who would be more qualified to speak on a culture than someone who's already fully immersed in it? I hate when I see these non-"black" SJW types parading around as "allies", when over half of these muhfukkas don't even truly fuck with "black" ppl like that. Most of these ppl don't even want to live around "black" folk, which tells you how they REALLY feel about us. And a lot of these SJW-types champion ideologies that are harmful and destructive to "black" ppl in general. But yeah, I wouldn't even sweat those people. They're more interested in policing the thoughts and actions of others than their own. They wanna change the world by changing other ppl instead of just being the change they want to see. It's ass-backwards...

    POLL: Best time to take a shower

    I know a lot of people think baths are gross, but I take them way more than showers. Nothing beats a good bubble bath and none of y'all can tell me otherwise. I take baths at night, so I can go to bed all clean and not dirty my sheets faster than usual. Sometimes my bubble bath has a nice scent that helps me go to sleep, too. When I do shower, it's either in the morning or afternoon.

    Hey I hope you guys realize this, but you can make a thread on any albums you want to see get some love in the reviews section 😀. If you wanna make a poll and leave it at that, go for it. Paragraphs hurt my eyes anyways lol.
