MUCC new album, "惡" (aku) release

Recommended Posts

 

The title of the new album is 『惡』(Evil) and will be released on May 20.

It will be sold in 3 types and the tracklist contains 16 tracks.

 

Seems like the live distributed singles will be part of it as well as the (rerecorded) demos.

I hope this album doesn’t lean too heavily on previously released stuff

 

I need new songs mannnnnnn

 生と死と君, アメリア, My WORLD, 自己嫌惡 and COBALT are included, so we're getting 11 new songs! (Plus they will be the final versions, not the demos!)

Aku/Waru, same general principle I think. Either way, I think the title is lit, the look is great, but these single demos don't totally fit with this theme of Evil, in my view anyway. Also, Taboo and My World were my fave releases prior to this. Taboo more than My World, but I'm glad one of them made it.

Loving the grandma look!! It's like Horizont's Tatsurou got many years older... the glasses have also changed! :0

Jokes aside, I have no idea what to expect from this album. I haven't been following them for some time now, though "Kowareta Piano to Living Dead" had me pleasantly surprised. MUCC is that band who would let me down a few times but I'll always keep one eye on them, I guess.

Also, the release date is just a few days before my birthday! Hoping this can be a birthday present...

So when we ignore the already released tracks we get 10 new songs (if JUSTICE is a SE 9).

I'm really looking forward to this album!

I have mixed feelings about this album, but I'm leaning more towards optimism. On one hand, they released a really good album last year, one that was a major step-up from 脈拍, but on the other hand, Amelia and COBALT are the only singles that I liked at all; I didn't care for the rest. I am glad that the worst of the worst (e.g 例えば僕が居なかったら, HOTEL LEMMON TREE) won't be appearing. I did see potential in room, but Tatsurou just sounded awful. His voice in general hasn't been sounding great these days.

 

I'm expecting a decent album, hoping for something great, but also prepared for something far below average.

the natalie.mu news piece about the album lists the composers for the songs and all of them have lyrics, so unless some interlude has some minor singing, i'd assume there are no SE or mid-album filler instrumental tracks. https://natalie.mu/music/news/372545
