    All right, well now that I have my hands on the album I can officially give my opinion on it. Naya I am really tired so I might not finish this but so far it sounds pretty good the intro song is absolutely spectacular, there's so much energy going on and the guitar rocks. I've already heard Drain from the previewd and the full PV but that's still a really awesome song. Voltage is something new, it's really pop metal song if I can say that but the breakdown is the most interesting thing becausE I have Yet to hear something like that. Incomplete and Zantetsuken are the usual good new girugamesh tracks. Antlion pit is a catastrophic beast! Sato she does really good here and he does some sick low growls. I gotta say that Nii is just ruling this album. So far this album is shaping up to be their best one yet. This new sound that they've embraced is doing them good and I hope that they continue on with this sound. Edit: All right, so I've almost thoroughly listened to the album and the only song that isn't really hitting me is "Live is Life" and the new Zecchou BANG. I feel the production on the new one is nicer but the instruments sound dull, especially the guitar. The guitar in this song contrasts so much with how the guitar has been throughout the whole album, strong and very "in your face" Other than that, the album is pretty much a strong one and I love it to death Pros: Intro, Drain, Voltage, Resolution, Alone Con: Live is Life, Zecchou BANG

    Let me go ahead and say that the one downfall to this single is the instrumental of Shooting Star. It's lovely but during the A-melo, there isn't much going on besides the drums and the electronically distorted guitar...unless that's Saga. On the second verse you can hear Tora playing really quietly in the back. Shooting Star wasn't what everyone was expecting, but it's exactly as I predicted. Out of the 3 title tracks, Daybreak was going to be loved, Shadowplay would be the crown track, and Shooting Star would be in 3rd ranking. I, personally, love the song. It is rather relaxing and it does sound a little R&B but Shou sounds lovely and I'm not one to focus on Shou. Last time that happened was Hanagasumi from [9]. While I do love it, it is my least favorite of the 3 singles. Affection is a step in the right direction. This is the rock Alice Nine that I constantly want. There are some badass riffs, Shou sounds a little aggressive in his own way, there are some really awesome bass lines, and that guitar solo from Tora is just full of energy. I know most aren't going to like the auto-tuned "Come on, Come on, Come on" but I don't mind, I think Shou uses it very playfully here. I also love that the chorus isn't a chord progression but more of a riff than anything. I love the live version of Kasumi so that just bumped this single up a lot!

    Now I'm not in the mood to really write a huge in depth review or anything like that, but, I would just like to say that this album was my entry to this band. This album is the first thing I have listened to from coldrain, a band who I had previously avoided due to some pretty dumb reasons. This album was absolutely amazing to me, it had some pretty amazing songs: The Revelation, The War is On, Time Bomb, Chasing Dreams. All the other songs to me were all pretty good but not amazing. This album has some really amazing choruses which are just the highlights of most songs and I love that this album isn't full of heavy breakdowns all around, but it includes some pretty great, yet short, guitar solos or awesome melodic breaks between the songs. I went back to their previous releases such as The Enemy Inside and Through Clarity, my favorite song from Coldrain has to be Inside of Me from Through Clarity (it even helped inspire some new songwriting for me). I can definitely tell that in their new album, the drums sound a lot tighter, and the guitars are most focused on a melody than trying to keep the rhythm of the song with riffs. All in all, I have found an amazing new band to follow, some great new songs to jam out to, and an addition to my "Top albums of 2013"
  5. Well done, 摩天楼オペラ, absolutely spectacular! The -overture- sort of brings you in to what you know is coming next already. It's a great SE and it transitions nicely into GLORIA. Plastic Lover is a very nice song, absolutely in the style that I was expecting more of the songs to sound like in this album~ 悪魔の翼、just by the previews alone, had already made it as the most anticipated song for me on this album. The intro just pumped me up, the chorus is rather abruptly put in but the majestic-ness to it just overcame that. There's a beautiful calm spot between the song that was just elegantly added. The fact that 2 single songs came after this was kind of boring but Freesia and Camel are two good songs so it wasn't all too bad. Merry Drinker is a very powerful song, love the energy that goes along with it, gets me headbanging along to it for some reason. Both the guitar solo after the Chorus and the outro solo was just pure Anzi love~ SWORD as i expected is a very strong sound. Yuu really likes to get that bass drum going the whole time huh? He does the same thing all throughout the final song, 喝采と激情のグロリア. MY GOD, that BASS in SWORD just made my ears jizz!!! Great song, definitely my #2 on this album. Somethingのブルー, by the length alone, was looking to be the album's ballad this time around. It's got a very nice orchestral background and the chorus is really something beautiful. The small guitar melody after the 1st chorus somewhat reminded me of a GALNERYUS melody(calm down, not saying they are copying them or anything). The fact that the songs fades into a piano melody was just the best ending for this song! Midnight fanfare just transitions beautifully from the previous song. Clearly, this the album's instrumental. Blasts forth into the instruments rather abruptly though. It would have been nice for some buildup but the instruments are too good to give a damn. Just be Myself(JUSTICE) was very badass but there was a lot of repetition in it with some small changes in melody every now and then. This song has a structure similar to a regular song. The song plays a chorus, Aメロ, chorus, guitar -keyboard solo. Bメロ, and then the outro. 喝采と激情のグロリア sounded just amazing from the previews, I knew I was in for a treat. Guitar is absolutely the best thing about this song, and the piano sections in the Bメロ is just exceptional with the perfect pace to it. This was the best song to finish the album with, can't think of any other that would have fit this spot. All of the new songs were just absolutely amazing and they picked the best songs from their singles to add to this album (Although Psychic Paradise would have been better instead of CAMEL). Thank you, 摩天楼オペラ!
