  1. OMG this Plastic Tree banner is giving me so much life <3

    1. Seimeisen


      OMG AND MIRROR-ERA D'ESPA!! MIRROR is my favourite album of theirs!

    2. Ito


      It's almost like I should have done a Plastic Tree one earlier... XD
      (also, that D'espa one was absolutely my first thought when I was starting these oldschool banners.)

  2. Not gonna lie, when I read the initial draft, I thought it was gonna be an April Fool's joke. Guess the Zess is all about unpopular GazettE opinions... Before this release, I never really cared for tracks like Cassis, reila, 白き優鬱, or 絲, but I'm really starting to like these new versions, and they all work well on this album. The reason I never really liked 白き優鬱 is because it just didn't work well with the other tracks on DIM (I think WITHOUT A TRACE or 暪し would have fit better), but it works just fine here so I'm able to enjoy it more. My favourites are 枯詩, D.L.N., 体温, and maybe 絲. If I haven't said it enough times, new 体温 is my everything! This track proves that they should do another re-recording set that consists of heavier, more live-oriented material. My main complaints about this release are the mixing/mastering job, and RUKI's vocals (some of the time). One example is PLEDGE; I prefer his deeper vocals on the original TOXIC version. On this new version, he kind of sounds like he's auditioning for an oshare-kei band. There are a few other moments in other songs where I think he sounded better in the original, but I've grown used to the new versions, so again, I can enjoy them more. And regarding the mixing/mastering, I do hope they would have brought a professional on board to do the job better (or that they'd have at least consulted someone), or used high quality equipment for testing. I might edit this with more thoughts...
  3. Well geeee, that sounds an awful lot like censorship...
  4. Wow... really? I used to keep up with the set lists from the first two DOGMATIC tours, and they all had HEADACHE MAN, even the setlists I checked for the ANOTHER FATE tour, so I just assumed they'd include it in every set list (lol)... ETA: I just checked the set list for the DOGMATIC FINALE Blu-ray and that song isn't even there. I've made a false assumption here 😅 That'd be nice! Not sure if it's something we should expect. We did get a DVD for the 10th anniversary, but I don't think we got one for the 13th. Guess we'll have to wait and see...
  5. Shit, now I'm thinking of postponing my trip to Japan for an entire month so I can catch this show
  6. That's gotta be the first set they've played in years that didn't include HEADACHE MAN. Seriously wishing I made plans to attend that show
  7. A few of the iTunes previews are growing on me. Absolutely loving new-体温, and loving how butthurt people are about the lyrics being Japanese. The previews I'm not digging are the ones for CALM ENVY, UNTITLED, 紅蓮, 白き憂鬱, and PLEDGE, and my main problem with those tracks is how RUKI sounds (except 白き憂鬱, he sounds fine, I just don't care for that song). Cassis and reila are growing on me, surprise surprise, but I still think 送り火 would have been a better choice over reila, since reila always kinda bored me. This may be presumptuous, as I haven't even heard full versions of any song yet, but... Here's what I think the tracklist should have been: 枯詩 Cassis D.L.N. Bathroom 泣ヶ原 花言葉 WITHOUT A TRACE 紅蓮 (vocals from original version) 千鶴 おくりび 絲 体温
  8. Man, they must be obsessed with the Xavier Institute of Social Service. I mean, how many song titles of theirs have "XISS" in it? 10?
  9. Okay, so this is not so much a "xenophobia conspiracy" thing, but more of a "we really are the stupidest fucking people on planet earth" kind of thing?
  10. Okay I just listened to the previews... half of these songs are wrecked (PLEDGE included). This is just sad that they chose to celebrate their fifteenth anniversary with this poor selection of (mostly) poorly re-recorded songs. They could have done better than this. 体温 and 枯詩 sounded great, though. I hope whoever leaks this buys the limited edition...
  11. Still haven't heard these 'cause I need to fire up my proxy (fuck you) and download this, but you know you're in for some god-awfulness when people are commenting on a poor mixing job and saying they'd rather have an UNRAVELING treatment. 😟 PLEDGE is one of my favourite GazettE ballads so I cannot be okay with them ruining it (lol). Like, I'm a total GazettE-stan (nothing is more obvious) and even I'm worried...
  12. B-side titles confirmed by All types: 病病 (yama-yama; Sickness) C Type bonus track: butterfly D Type bonus track: 変食家 (Henshoku-ka; The Eclectician) Doesn't really matter yet since we don't have audio previews of them, buuuut... y'know, at least I added the personal touch of translating the titles
  13. TZK looks ridiculous (in the bad way); MiA looks less annoying now that he's ditched the third-rate-kamijo look, but I'm sure he's still an obnoxious brat; Koichi looks like Koichi (lol); Meto is giving me serious Yuuki vibes and he is pulling this look off. The winner is obvious, and so is the loser!
  14. If you got any of this from Bing translate, then I'm 99% sure it's false
  15. Scrolled through Cassis, it didn't sound all that different, which was very disappointing, and now I'm worried that reira will also sound too much like the original. I mean, I didn't want or expect these songs to get an UNRAVELING treatment, but I wanted something more. After seeing the cover art, I started to imagine a darker sounding Cassis, maybe slowed down a bit, with no piano or acoustic guitars. I usually know better than to let album artwork mould my expectations, I don't know what has gotten into me. My opinions may change, since these are shitty quality radio rips being played through my shitty MacBook speakers... I've always really liked 紅蓮, so I don't give a fuck if it sounds the same as the album version (though I didn't listen to that one entirely). It's a good song, sue me bitch. I wonder if any other tracks will get corrected Engrish? Will RUKI actually pronounce the L in reiLa? I'm especially curious about the Engrish in 体温.
