2019 Japanese Music Ratings

Recommended Posts

This topic is starting to feel like a MH tradition now I think haha. But anyways....


This thread is dedicated to Japanese releases in 2019 that the MH Community will listen to and would like to keep track of throughout the entire year. It’s a nice way of referring back to a list, should you forget if you’ve listened to a certain release yet or not. I know I forget sometimes haha. These ratings can also help those who may want to see which releases are favoring well or not, based on each individual user who you may have similar tastes with.


Feel free to set up your own rating system (Stars, ?/5, ?/10, Best to Worst, Oooh to Eww, etc.), but try and use spoiler tags to save room in your post, and save room on the page for the other members’ rating lists.

Keep this list in mind in the event that we, the MH staff, host a JRock Awards at the end of the year :) .


Last Year's for reference:



Looking forward to seeing everyone’s lists at the end of the year!


Yuyo’s List for 2019:

Hopefully I can keep it up for this year, but I surely won't listen to many bands, but here is what I listen too.


Kousai Ravel - Mousou Rabbit :2.5: 
(I still think that the vocalist isn't a good vocalist, but musically they are alright)

i.D.A - 神話双星記 :5.0: (I prefer i.D.A above NETH)

NETH PRIER CAIN - 神話双星記 :5.0:

蘭図 (Rands) - Inferiority Complex & Narcissism :2.0:
It's listenable, nothing special, lot's of looping melody, it's smooth, that's all, but 100% not a WOW thing.

Getting in on this hype so I can actually remember what came out this year and be persuaded to listen to more shit in the process yas. For now it's only the name of the release with a short description. New categories, scores and dates being added in the future.






蘭図 - Inferiority Complex Genuine old school sound and vibes with song variety and Karma. Shows a lot of promise, at its best when total kuroyume worship. Nice



DEZERT/MUCC - 蟲/ガチャガチャムクムク This might get knocked down to shit. DEZERT plays a very MUCC-esque song ( just goes to show how strong the influence is, because the stuff right before and during the chorus is totes MUCC ) with X-Japan sections, a pounding nu metal intro and sweet nostalgic sounding chorus that these two bands are kind of known for. MUCC on the other hand does something that sounds pretty much like you'd expect them to at their most, MUCC-like at this stage. I don't know if either band is capable of better music than this at the respective stages of their career with the other sounding like an UNiTE B-side while encroaching their 50's while the other is like a loaf of wonderbread left out in the rain, but despite of that both of these bands suck now and that's it pretty much it. Still not an offensive release, or I'm not sure maybe it is...
