+ I don't really get the comments about the lack of bass, I can hear it clear enough for the most part but it does sound pretty synthesised as opposed to an actual bass though which is a shame, but maybe this was done for a more "poppy"/electronic effect.

On my first listen I was hung up on feeling that something was missing and I just kind of assumed that it was the absence of tangible bass lines from the compositions. Now I've realised I think it's more that when they took out the chugs they just didn't manage to get the riffs to replace them. The songs like What's Up noodle around where chugs would've been before ( in Malformation, Rijin imagine the metal riffs gone and only the noodling remain ) and the "heaviest" tracks in here like Funny World are just really fucking bad, like Girugamesh MUSIC and NOW era distilled through Retsu's IG filter. In Rijin everything is still together and the flourishes are just that. This album has stuff that I like that would've been cool on songs in Chedoara, like For the Future is moody and 'aight.

I was thinking about writing a big review for this one, but the only thing I can think is:

 

"Jesus Christ, they really like Polyphia."

 

So, yeah. For me, it sounds like "If Polyphia had vocals"

Now I didn't follow DIMLIM enough to know much about their progression. I listened to their first few releases and wasn't impressed. Then the drama and all the members leaving and I didn't follow, but I listened to this album. I like some of the music, though a lot of it is pretty forgettable. How sudden is this musical shift of theirs to warrant the lyrics to be this petty? I get they're trying to kick the visual scene, but there's a much more mature way of doing so than being a whiny baby about it. Diss tracks are pretty immature (I'm looking at you Nokubura ...) but a diss track to their audience seems even more counter intuitive and immature.

Christ, did the band sit down and discuss the concept of this album was going to be thumbing their collective noses at what few fans they have left? This shit is weird. 
 

Then again, it’s like these lyrics were written with the knowledge that MISC wouldn’t be well received, because we sure as fuck had no idea what we were in for thru most of 2019

this gal is translating the album and they are dissing us fans pretty hard in a couple of songs, lol

their own sales never reaching the level of dezert/girugamesh to be considered a successful sell-out is the biggest self-diss Retsu etc could ever come up with.

 

I will be checking out their next releases for the laugh factor mostly, but we realistically need Akane to come back and end the young things.

All hail Akane, that's for sure

My criticism is about as similar as a lot of people here, the bass is almost non-existent. Other than that, it's way too djenty for my taste.

This album was such a let down, I mean they can do whatever the hell they want so go on change styles but it's just some wasted talent man... Chedoara and previous releases were so much better, even when they started changing a bit in rijin it was still good but this is just plain, boring and forgettable like you could play any of the songs in the album rn and I wouldn't be able to tell which one is it

It isn’t djent. Like... at all.

Whatever the name of the guitar tuning they're using. 

Perhaps you want to refer to what some people here call the "guitar-wanking"? That sort of excessively chopped guitar lines and/or fast high-pitch melodies. That work is featured in both djent and math genres as well, although their differences.

Yup, that exactly. Thanks.

 

It's very unpleasant to my ears.

When I see the word “djent” I think of heavy, down tuned, rhythmic palm muted riffs. MISC doesn’t chug and that’s a huge part of the problem.

I think Rijin was the perfect balance. They should continue on this direction

With only one dude on guitar that is most likely not going to happen unless they at least get a bassist. I think the reason for the huge shift in sound is to accommodate the thin line up.
