Mihi's Favorite Releases + Songs from 2016

6 posts in this topic

I don't have time to write fully detailed reviews, so I'm just going to share with you my favorite releases and songs from 2016 with short blurbs. Also, these aren't best to least best, they're all equal to me and it'd be pretty hard to choose one over the others so they're not in any specific order except maybe alphabetically. Enjoy and thanks for reading!

----------------------------------------------------------------------

 

・FAVORITE RELEASES・

 

甘い暴力 - 嘘キス

2hpsnrk.png

Honestly, fucking phenomenal. 10/10.

This is the new unit that was formed after the disbandment of 黒姫の夢遊病 and 白日ノ夢.

I can't wait for them to release more music in 2017 because this song is lit.

AmyDolly - creation

2alslx.png

Literally disgusted at myself for liking this.

There's something super addictive about it even though it sounds atrocious. I just can't get enough.

Both songs are cringeworthy yet bangers at the same time???

-----

 

アンフィル - アクア

16iis0n.png

This is probably my favorite Anfiel song EVER.

Shogo's voice is so smooth and sexy like milk and it just flows nicely throughout the entire song.

-----

 

Axkey - アイシア/DAHLIA

24ozsq9.png

Both songs are super catchy and the vocals suit the music perfectly.

Pretty perfect release to me <3

-----

 

BLESSCODE - Imperial City

2li8lc8.png

I DIDN'T EVEN KNOW IT WAS POSSIBLE TO MAKE A SONG LIKE THIS.

FROM THE CHORUS TO THE SOLO, EVERYTHING IS PERFECT. 

I THINK THIS WAS THE SINGLE OF THE YEAR THAT I WAS MOST HYPED FOR EVER SINCE I HEARD THE PREVIEWS

EVEN NOW WHEN I LISTEN TO IT, I'M STILL LIKE "OH FUCK"

The 2 other tracks on this release compliment the single exceptionally. 

This release is just so well-rounded and hot like fuck omg

-----

 

DECAYS - Baby who wanders

mx1o3r.png

More like "Baby who fucks me up"

This was a nice surprise this year.

I normally wouldn't have given this a listen, but a lot of people were saying such good things about it and I can see why.

I can get down with any song that has a violin in it tbh.

-----

 

dexcore - The Dead Sea

2wnsrap.png

This was probably right under Imperial City for single I was most hyped for.

I'm really not into harsh and brutal vocals, but when they're paired with hot, angelic clean vocals, then I'm into them.

The chorus in The Dead Sea is fucking phenomenal. It's also my ringtone.

Mistake and Hunger are fucking lit as well. 

I can't wait to hear more from these guys!

-----

 

FoLLoW - FoLLoW

ljfas.png

If you haven't listened to FoLLoW yet, do yourself a favor and listen to this album.

I know the album art is atrocious but their music is SO GOOD.

Ever since hiroki showed me プラネタリウム, I've been hooked. 

It's a shame they decided to disband.

-----

 

白日ノ夢 - 白き記憶

v5cqc4.png

I don't even know what to say other than THIS MINI ALBUM IS FUCKING AWESOME.

Kou is for sure one of my favorite vocalists and every release is phenomenal.

I can't think of one release that I didn't like between Shounenki, Hakujitsu, and Kurohime.

事例03 -策略- from this release is a fucking B A N G E R

-----

 

Kra - 宇宙トラベラー [CELL+CORE]

1z2huyx.jpg

Another band that has yet to release something that I didn't like. 

While these are 2 separate mini albums, I'm counting them as a whole because they're equally brilliant.

Songs like Eclipse are highly reminiscent of Kra's earlier songs and I'm glad they revisit earlier sounds.

-----

 

黒姫の夢遊病 - リィザ

24yd62x.png

SLEEPING BEAUTY, NIGHTMARE KISS

PAINFUL PRINCESS RIZA

SLEEPLESS BEAUTY, FEAR, EVIL KISS

DARKNESS BEAUTY RIZA

RIZA

SAVE ME

RIZAAAAA

-----

 

凛 - 「the end of corruption world」

2nqtycg.png

Kisaki pls come back

All my jams packed into one release

-----

 

MAN WITH A MISSION - The World's On Fire

90vy8j.png

Whoa... something that's not vk.

This is probably my favorite album by MWAM.

The first 3 tracks are so explosive that I couldn't help myself but to venture further into the album.

-----

 

ピノキオ - Melancholy box

e9xkle.png

Someone made a status about this album, so I decided to check it out and I was extremely pleased.

Pleasant album from start to finish with some really stand-out tracks!

-----

 

RAINDIA - トラッシュジュウス

r77xhg.png

Another release that surprised me this year.

I listened to this single on repeat for 4 hours while I was on a plane.

I can easily listen to 碧落ノ彼岸花 on repeat all day.

-----

 

RAZOR - RED INVISIBLE

25yud5h.png

After losing interest in BORN in 2012, my initial thought was: "I'm going to hate this."

Did I? Not at all. Surprise surprise. I literally found all 6 tracks enjoyable.

PRIMARY and RED ZONE are my favorites.

-----

 

SHIVA - 救世主-メシア-

15oa2py.png

UH........ RIDICULOUSLY GOOD. LIKE DAMN.

-----

 

少年記 - TIMELESS

b4xhg9.png

 BANG ME one last time.

-----

 

vistlip - Snowman

2lb1j03.png

I haven't enjoyed a vistlip single in its entirety since CHIMERA.

Either the singles weren't that great, or there was a B side I didn't care for.

With Snowman, I could get behind all 3 tracks which is the first since 2013 LOL

-----

 

パノラマ虚構ゼノン - XENON BEST SELECTION

24q1zpy.png

YAAAAAAASSSSS SO MANY BANGERS

-----

 

-真天地開闢集団-ジグザグ - オキラ

290r21d.png

Dude this release was crazy good especially 本当はね、私わるい子。

!!!!!

were you drunk when you wrote your list? lololol

 

anyway, nice list :) a little surprised you chose Snowman over CONTRAST for vistlip though. but i agree that everything vistlip did in 2016 (EXCEPT aya rebirth) was wayyy better than disasters like COLD CASE. so that's a relief.

 

i'm also surprised how many people REALLY liked anfiel's aqua. i mean, yeah i love it (obviously) but was it markedly better than the other stuff they did in 2016?? i'm probably too biased to tell though haha..

 

also loved everything Axkey did, especially Fantasia, which placed just outside my top 10 singles. RAINDIA was a nice surprise too... never thought i'd buy their stuff when they first started out.

Cool list! Thank you for this:)

白日ノ夢's mini... what can I say besides of being a lovely release?

 

I hope Kra can do more great releases like that to us all ;D

 

"This is probably my favorite Anfiel song EVER" Same here!  アクア is by far my favorite song too <3 Also you made "オフレコディスコ" and "指切り" for favorites from their respectives singles, they are for me as well:) 

 

Looking for vistlip's and don't find CONTRAST songs, I have to agree with hiroki, that was a surprise lol

 

Happy to see Aimer, I have totally forgot about her release with TK! Still need to listen to.

 

I haven't listened to Lamplight=melody and Snowman yet so can't talk about it.

and yay! Tra!!! <33333333

 

I've heard of Man With a Mission! I think someone recommended them to me a while ago, but I just never got around to listening to them. I'll definitely give them a try!
