YEEEEE BOIIII

 

Back when this album was released I was still a vk babby, so you know I sucked all of that sweet sweet mother's milk from...uhhh...Hizumi & co? Okay, this started out weird. But the fact still stands that these guys caught me in my most impressionable phase and left their mark on me with this full-length.

 

Before this was released, I wasn't paying too much attention to them, only knew a small handful of tracks, and even though those tracks were cool, it still floored me how amazing this album sounded and how tight the songs were. Everyone here was at the top of their game and you could hear the excitement, passion and the energy they put into the music, that can only come from such a young band.

 

When I've put it on in recent years it still holds up quite well, but there are some more average/mediocre moments... anyway, it is still my top favorite album of theirs and always will be a minor classic imo.

 

Favorites: tracks 1-4, 6-9 (and the rest are fine/decent)

I don't have anything to say about this because I've never listened to this band carefully, but I approve the insightful music-related discussion!

 

MH needs more of this stuff!

 

Thanks @CAT5!

An interesting info nugget btw: the one who did the two remixes at the end (which are imo kinda useless but whatever xD) as well as the programming on tracks Garnet and 「浮遊した理想」 is Kazutoshi Yokoyama! He has done extensive production/programming/synth work for Laputa and BUCK-TICK among others (he's practically almost the 6th member of B-T at this point, lol).
