  • Tunaboy45 Yeah that video is excellent, bring on the new album whenever it may be!
    July 25 11:44 AM
  • Tunaboy45 new Dir En Grey is bizarre but I love it
    July 25 11:28 AM

    July 24 12:22 PM
  • MrGarland I actually really like this. There's definitely more catchy riffs, making this feel a bit more "light-hearted" if that's the right word.
    July 12 02:35 PM
  • MrGarland One of my favorites.
    July 12 02:30 PM
  • MrGarland Thanks for the recommendation! I've never heard of BUCK-TICK.. Sort of an odd choice for a name, but I'll give them a spin. By the way, if you enjoy the gothic scene as much as I do, I recommend Peter Murphy. I've been hooked for a while now.
    July 12 02:17 PM
  • MrGarland 5:24 I got those chills. He's brilliant.
    July 12 02:05 PM
  • MrGarland I'm loving the **** out of those stage effects they got going on there. Goth Rock at it's finest.
    July 12 02:02 PM
  • MrGarland I didn't even realize they released a live album. And yes, he is extremely passionate. Asians do everything better :)
    July 12 01:47 PM
  • MrGarland Love that group man!
    July 12 01:42 PM
  • crossparallel I'm really, really sorry, Cal :( Wish I could make up in some way. But that's what I did last time and it did not work out. Besides, B-T don't need saving, I trust new ratings will be good, 'cause those 5's are totally deserved.

  • BlackMalachite My debut album be streaming!
    July 6 10:34 PM
  • BlackMalachite
    July 6 10:27 PM
  • BlackMalachite Mostly electronic (of varying genres), but there's a few industrial / classical influences mixed in there along with the electronic.
    July 6 04:54 PM
  • BlackMalachite Sounds good man! I'll pop you the link when it's finished.
    July 6 04:43 PM
  • BlackMalachite Hey, my album's dropping in a couple days. Want me to link you to the stream when it's done?
    July 6 04:09 PM
  • TVC15 Yeah man sure
    July 4 06:36 PM
  • TVC15 Ah alrighty then. Where's the list here?
    July 4 01:58 PM
  • TVC15 Messaged you on Dubtrack the other day. Not sure if you got it
    July 4 01:28 PM
  • TVC15 That's awesome, I'll get on that later
    July 1 03:54 PM
  • TVC15 What's Dubtrack?
    July 1 03:27 PM
  • TVC15 Oh yeah because a few users were getting all snide in the comments section saying I should've waited till Ars' list falls of the main page
    July 1 02:56 PM
  • TVC15 Check out my latest list, you'll love it ;]
    July 1 09:03 AM
  • parksungjoon yea it's different that's for sure but i think for what it is, it's really good
    June 30 06:02 AM
  • parksungjoon yea
    June 30 05:59 AM
  • parksungjoon have you heard easily embarrassed?
    June 30 05:56 AM
  • SitruK6 Sure thing dude ;)
    June 30 05:56 AM
  • SitruK6 I think I'll be home in about 4 and a half hours from now, I'll probably eat and shower real quick and than im gonna have all day
    June 30 05:39 AM
  • SitruK6 Also sorry for the last few days, I've been really busy at work and I was just to tired at times to do anything :/
    June 30 05:33 AM
  • SitruK6 Heyyyy dude,I'm gonna finish work early today(also its the weekend for us tomorrow so **** yeah). wanna talk/jam on dubtrack today?
    June 30 05:33 AM
  • BlackMalachite Thank you dude. That really means a lot. I've been trying to keep my "eccentric" behavior to a minimum, and obviously I've learned not to pull another joke like the fake marriage here on Sputnik again.
    June 29 02:16 PM
  • TVC15 Duuuuuude Kuroki's album is so damn beautiful
    June 26 12:46 PM
  • Tunaboy45 Oh I'm sure they will :') nice to have something to do in-between though.
    June 26 11:19 AM
  • Tunaboy45 Yeah if I'm going to a uni it needs to have some good societies, whether it's film societies, music or heck even a doctor who society. They seem like a good way to keep yourself busy.
    June 26 11:08 AM
  • Tunaboy45 Yeah when I was there all I could think was that it looked like center parcs with lecture halls haha. I have friends who want to go to Liverpool, I know one of them wants to do criminology.
    June 26 10:56 AM
  • Tunaboy45 AAB or ABB, it can vary according to the prospectus. I was thinking of doing English Language with history but it might be too much. You do maths right?
    June 26 10:26 AM
  • Tunaboy45 Not at uni yet, had a look round York Uni on Friday and it pretty much confirms the fact that it's my first choice. Looks amazing and the English Language course sounds like it's right up my street. I just need to work hard on getting the grades now.
    June 26 10:09 AM
  • Tunaboy45 I've listened to Uroboros and Kisou but I'll probably give them a few more listens before I rate them since I still don't think I've completely digested them yet. Next time I'm in there I'll be sure to pick it up. Anyway how are things going at uni?
    June 26 09:20 AM
  • Tunaboy45 I was passing through HMV on Friday and saw the limited edition of Arche but unfortunately I had no money on me at the time. Hopefully it's still there because I've been meaning to pick it up and the limited edition artwork is awesome. This Budokan DVD looks amazing too.
    June 26 07:55 AM
  • Mythodea Haha, indeed. Well, I don't think either of us is too proud and close-minded to derail the discussion. We had nice arguements, understood where we stood together and let the rest to ourselves to ponder upon. It's nice to have such discussions here in Sput.
    June 21 01:21 PM
  • Sinternet that sucks lol. Yeah i feel like i'm gonna be fairly bored all summer so thinking of ways to pass the time is fun, you got any plans to cope?
    June 17 05:58 AM
  • Sinternet Aww thanks man, had my last one yesterday and I think they went alright overall, although i did get a nosebleed in the middle of my English which was fun. How you been anyway?
    June 17 05:54 AM
  • manosg Agreed. He seems to overpraise some albums because he loves a band, but when you get familiar with his system, you start to understand which albums are great and which of them are just good.
    June 15 03:56 AM
  • manosg For sure. I've already watched Motorhead, Iron Maiden, Darkthrone and partly Queen. He makes very good points and regardless if one agrees with him, he provides an interesting perspective. Regarding Yngwie, I was surprised to see that he wasn't so fond of the debut since it's been widely heralded as Malmsteen's masterpiece.
    June 14 03:56 PM
  • manosg Of course I did! It was a very enjoyable video and the dude definitely knows his music even though he seemed to be a big fan of more or less Yngwie's whole discog haha.
    June 14 03:47 PM
  • SitruK6 haha, i know what you mean as i still listen to Filosofem on regular basis.i'll be sure to check 'Slow Riot' ASAP.
    June 12 09:22 AM
  • SitruK6 also speaking of Godspeed, what should i check next by them? (i only heard F#A#)
    June 12 09:10 AM
  • SitruK6 yeah i'm probably over-thinking this way too much haha."typical opinion but it is for a reason."we all know there is indeed a very good reason why some stuff become a typical opinion :).i honestly haven't heard Blackwater Park in ages.btw F#A# Bumped!
    June 12 09:10 AM
  • SitruK6 i may even bump Blackwater park
    June 12 09:01 AM
  • SitruK6 looking at it now, i may actually have albums at 4.5 that are more like a 4 haha.
    June 12 08:59 AM
  • SitruK6 albums i may bump:1) F#A# (Infinity) - holy s*** i love this album so muchhhhh (100% getting bumped but i promised i myself i will revist everything once more to make sure i actually feel like it's a 5)2) In A Silent Way - this made me look at jazz in a way i've never looked at it before 3) OK Computer - i know this is like a mainstream choice but i really like the vibe of this whole album4) Animals - i mean i really, really like Wish You Were Here, but for me this is the better album.
    June 12 08:57 AM
  • SitruK6 if you look at someone's ratings every time you go to his profile you know you're a true sputnik user ;) haha.well i dropped it because i felt like i have some rated at 4.5 that i may actually enjoy more.i really need to revist some stuff and than i'll arrange my 4.5's and 5's (which currently is just filosofem by burzum)
    June 12 08:46 AM
  • SitruK6 tbh i know what you mean, i myself am the same way.every now and than i force myself to do something new (even if it's really small).i noticed on myself that every time i manage to make my life style better i am not just happier but i have more confidence which of course means it's going to be easier trying new things out.
    June 12 08:42 AM
  • SitruK6 Dude I don't want to bother you with your personal issues but I'm not 100% sure that I understood your comment on the "THINK HAPPY" thread, can you maybe explain it to me? (That is of course if u want to)
    June 12 08:08 AM
  • Takato Yes, some songs like thanatos, my ****in' valentine, kimi ga shin..dara Thanatos is by far imo the best buck-tick song.
    June 9 02:59 PM
  • Takato Hey, yes its a fantastic album! (my favorite)Yes, I've seen it, but I have not been rated.
    June 6 12:45 PM
  • Toad aw too bad, thankfully i haven't finished the series so i'm pretty excited to keep chugging
    June 6 11:08 AM
  • Toad mushishi is amazing, i haven't been able to find anything else like it though - have you?
    June 6 10:45 AM
  • parksungjoon **** yeah dude check kinetik as well it's more wubby but still great
    June 2 06:57 PM
  • AnimalsAsSummit its a fantastic album! i gotta get on some more of their other releases, still behind haha
    June 2 04:11 PM
  • parksungjoon i meant in general; if anything i'm finding gauze a little more interesting than uroboros at the moment but that might change in time
    May 28 10:13 AM
  • parksungjoon interesting, so far i think the most offputting thing for me is the cleans and the abundance thereof
    May 28 10:08 AM
  • parksungjoon yeah uroboros seems to combine a lot of elements that are hit and miss with me. how stylistically different is gauze and what band would you compare that record to, if any?
    May 28 09:39 AM
  • parksungjoon alright thanks
    May 28 08:54 AM
  • parksungjoon whats a good place to start with dir en grey if i thought that one song with the chugs was pretty boring
    May 28 07:52 AM
  • Vorpax No, I got the regular version, bought from The limited edition can only be found at Yahoo Auctions and I want it in new condition, not to mention that it's really pricey.
    May 27 01:51 PM
  • Angelboros Indeed, man. Such a dazzling performance and the atmosphere dressing it couldn't have been more appropriate.
    May 27 11:57 AM
  • Vorpax About Arui wa Anarchy, Cayce made a post about the references they used on the tour, here:
    May 26 07:35 PM
  • Vorpax I have seen neither 13th floor nor Warp Days, I don't want to spoil the experience, I will wait for my DVDs XD
    May 26 07:22 PM
  • Vorpax I own Arui, Climax and Yume as well. Ordered 13th Floor and Warp Days, they are waiting for shipping in Japan, can't wait. What do you think about Warp Days?
    May 26 07:13 PM
  • Vorpax I'm trying to decide which one is better, Yume Tour or Arui XD Acchan cries singing Long Distance Call, DOLL Arui tour version sends shivers down my spine... Not to mention the rest of the performances, damn! Perfect execution.
    May 26 06:31 PM
  • parksungjoon neat yeah agreed
    May 22 02:39 PM
  • parksungjoon what do you think of the new gorguts
    May 22 02:26 PM
  • parksungjoon hmm well if it's not a constant flood of "who put this on it's s***" then i might give it a try when i have more time for this kind of stuffdamn it's been a long time since i jammed calculating infinity
    May 22 02:15 PM
  • parksungjoon was referring more to people like pots and cyg and whatnot
    May 22 02:07 PM
  • parksungjoon thanks for the invite but i'm more of a "put on a record and get immersed" kind of guy, especially when it comes to new music. that and i'm sure the chat is unbearable, given the average sputnik regular ~_~so yeah i'm more of a send recs give recs kinda guy than listening in shared rooms
    May 22 02:02 PM
  • parksungjoon ah so like and some other ones... yeah most of my m8s who are music nerds have very irregular schedules so we rarely had the opportunity to use those kinds of sites. idk
    May 22 01:58 PM
  • parksungjoon i'm afraid not, what's that
    May 22 01:54 PM
  • RunOfTheMill You think you'll ever get to see them with your own eyes? :P
    May 12 12:14 PM
  • RunOfTheMill Are all of those live albums also videos? If so, that's a lot of material to watch :0
    May 11 05:56 PM
  • FadedSun Oh damn. That's a tough one. Even though it's Tokyo Jihen, Electric Mole for sure. Expo 08 and 14 are both excellent. Gekokujyo and Zazen Ecstasy are both great as well.
    May 11 02:39 PM
  • RunOfTheMill Also holy s*** dude, you've really been plowing through those live albums
    May 11 06:48 AM
  • RunOfTheMill Yup. I'm hopping on the hype train. I've listened to Terminal Redux twice and seriously astonished at how well it holds up. Never thought I'd say that about a modern thrash album
    May 11 06:47 AM
  • RunOfTheMill I just might, man. I've dug the songs I've heard so far really hard, enough for me to pre-order the vinyl.I've been good just super busy with school. Summer semester just started :~
    May 9 08:40 AM
  • Jasdevi087 ****, Boris even?
    May 1 01:09 AM
  • Aberf where do you listen to all of those live stuffs?
    April 23 11:29 AM
  • Jasdevi087 wow you jammed some jams
    April 19 12:03 AM
  • TheSonomaDude butt tick
    April 15 09:02 PM
  • RikRoach7 Oh thanks, haha. Hope I'll get to it soon.
    April 8 02:29 PM
  • RikRoach7 okay thanks, I'll add it to my list.
    April 8 12:41 PM
  • RikRoach7 I'll get to it eventually, hopefully, but for now I'm busy with other stuff. 13kwg is great though, so yeah, it's on my to do list. ;)
    April 8 06:54 AM
  • RikRoach7 Did you expect anything else? ;)
    April 8 04:53 AM
  • onionbubs no problem lol. great video
    April 6 12:06 PM
  • DrGonzo1937 For sho, man. Hope the assignment didn't beast you too much. haha
    April 1 01:03 PM
  • DrGonzo1937 My band's second ep dropped today if you wanna check it out dude?
    April 1 10:16 AM
  • Jacquibim lol yeah I saw that and quietly chuckled to myself as I don't remember 50% of the albums I rated. Frankly I don't know how people function with 4-5000 ratings.
    April 1 06:18 AM
  • Jacquibim don't go givin me that silent treatment nigga
    April 1 06:10 AM
  • Jacquibim Indeed m9, feel like jamming?
    April 1 06:05 AM
  • Jacquibim Carly Bae be keepin me sane
    April 1 05:54 AM
  • Jacquibim lol ty, I love the owl's expression the most
    April 1 05:40 AM
  • Jacquibim Not a whole lot just kinda dissatisfied with work atm and wanna go to uni myself but I'm not sure how that's gonna work out for me financially. I really don't wanna have a side-job while studying, although my folks have offered to let me move back in but do I really wannaaaaaaa?
    April 1 05:39 AM
  • Jacquibim eh bro what you been up to
    April 1 05:30 AM
  • Angelboros Hey, Infin. On a scale of 1 to avocado, how disappointed are you with the new Babymetal? Karate and The One are boring, not gonna lie, but there were some tracks that kinda went ham.
    March 31 09:25 AM
  • DrGonzo1937 Awwhhh s***!
    March 29 01:38 AM
  • RunOfTheMill Sorrynotsorry I'm a total bitch
    March 25 03:08 PM
  • RunOfTheMill And, I mean, you've turned me into a proper Buck-Tick fan, wouldn't mind getting some physical copies of theur stuff
    March 25 12:49 PM
  • RunOfTheMill Wow thanks man, I think that's all I'll ever need haha. And I'm not sure really. I've always wanted an X Japan album on vinyl, and I've never found one for a reasonable price... And otherwise CDs and DVDs are just so overpriced elsewhere. I managed to snag the X Japan blu-ray box set for 60$ on ebay by 100% luck, but otherwise that same box set sells for like 600$.
    March 25 12:48 PM
  • Jasdevi087 Yo, listen to an album
    March 25 01:28 AM
  • RunOfTheMill Curious, is there any alternative to finding Japanese releases apart from the obnoxiously priced things you find on ebay, discogs, amazon, etc?
    March 24 04:27 PM
  • Tunaboy45 I'll probably give it some more listens this week.
    March 20 03:41 PM
  • Tunaboy45 I've given it one or two listens but I want to give it more before giving it a rating. I've honestly been listening to a lot less music than I'd like to lately with how busy things have been, really enjoyed what I heard though.
    March 20 10:46 AM
  • Tunaboy45 I'm with you on Karate, it's a disappointing song.
    March 20 08:58 AM
  • RunOfTheMill Yeeeeeeee catching up on those live albums and dvds, eh? :P
    March 16 11:37 AM
  • RunOfTheMill Ever listen to Siouxsie and the Banshees?
    March 14 11:21 AM
  • Aberf wow, that should be dope as ****. I'm in.
    March 12 08:38 PM
  • Aberf with the slightest chance to see them live, of course. Their live performance is insane.
    March 12 02:48 PM
  • Tunaboy45 Well in that case I'll start there and make sure the version I'm listening to is the remaster, thanks! (not sure why it took me so long to listen to them)
    March 7 12:23 PM
  • Tunaboy45 Been meaning to get into Dir En Grey but not really sure to start, any advice?
    March 7 12:04 PM
  • JigglyPDiddy Will do~ Currently binging on Team Sleep.
    March 5 10:10 AM
  • Jacquibim bro, come dub?
    February 27 06:52 AM
  • JigglyPDiddy I have NO idea. Lol I'll start brainstorming after college.
    February 26 10:17 AM
  • JigglyPDiddy I REALLY want to do my first review this weekend. I have more time since I finished my painting.
    February 26 10:13 AM
  • JigglyPDiddy I have, babe! I love the remakes. It's a 4 at this point for me.
    February 26 10:08 AM
  • blatho blatho.
    February 25 07:08 PM
  • Aberf I can see that. TK's vocal is the major downside of his music. You either hate it or love it. I like it a lot apparently.
    February 24 03:01 PM
  • Aberf I'm surprised that you haven't checked Ling Tosite Sigure except for the 'I'mperfect'. Apparently, that album is hit-or-miss.Check this one instead, 'Inspiration is Dead'
    February 23 11:35 PM
  • Aberf DSS is actually alright.
    February 23 12:42 AM
  • SachikoM ooh, good luck with your results! you'll be fine, I'm sure. if you prepared properly, and gave it your best shot, you should do well (or at the very least, pass comfortably). will you be interning anywhere during your post-grad study?
    February 10 04:51 AM
  • SachikoM sounds like you've got it all pretty well sorted for the time being. good to hear! have you gotten your exam results back yet?
    February 10 04:09 AM
  • SachikoM oh yeah, it's been up and down tbh. I've fallen out with my family, got a steady relationship going, got myself a room on-campus, and had pretty much everything else in-between, so I'm a bit conflicted about how I should feel. but I'm looking forward to it all, so I guess it's been good. how're things with you?
    February 9 06:17 PM
  • FadedSun What album cover is that in your avatar?
    February 6 06:51 PM
  • RunOfTheMill Damn, don't you live in the are though? Or am I making wild assumptions here?
    February 4 12:54 PM
  • RunOfTheMill Also the X Japan show in London has been postponed till... Next year... Think you can make it? :P
    February 3 09:52 PM
  • RunOfTheMill Dress too. What an album, might be on par with Kurutta for me.
    February 3 05:03 PM
  • RunOfTheMill Ao no Sekai... what a song...
    February 3 04:00 PM
  • discovolante Yeah, maybe. I just remember not being that impressed by it. I may relisten to it soon.
    February 2 07:35 AM
  • DrGonzo1937 Agreed. Never a cheap affair, when it comes to buying Diru merch. haha
    January 30 03:16 AM
  • Angelboros I may not actively watch wrestling these days, but that doesn't stop me from checking out episodes of Botchamania, which I've been doing as of late. SUPER DRAGON!
    January 25 12:28 PM
  • ScuroFantasma That's awesome thanks man
    January 17 07:11 PM
  • AnimalsAsSummit aw s*** will do asap man
    January 16 11:50 PM
  • DrGonzo1937 You call dibs on what limited edition R
    January 14 02:52 AM
  • Aberf I'm glad that I check that one out.
    January 13 11:02 PM
  • RunOfTheMill man that song is really hard to listen to :/ I think I'll need to give 'em time, def takes talent to sing like that on stage
    January 8 09:22 AM
  • crossparallel First thing in the morning! Just got my hands on a rip of Blackstar, and nothing takes precedence over that now. And I'd love to join.
    January 7 06:25 PM
  • BigPleb Na it's ok I'm good man! You ok? Still in Liverpool?
    January 6 07:02 PM
  • BigPleb Keep hold of it man, depending on if my bet comes in tomorrow I'll buy it haha!
    January 6 11:26 AM
  • RunOfTheMill yo you're a pretty big Dir En Grey fan, ya? I've heard good things about them, no idea where to start though and what (little) I've heard I didn't like too much
    January 5 03:34 PM
  • DrGonzo1937 Cheers Cal. I'll definitely check it out! And, nice! You'll love it. The packaging alone justifies what you paid.
    January 5 01:41 AM
  • DrGonzo1937 I have not dude. Is it worth buying?
    January 4 01:33 AM
  • RunOfTheMill Yeah man, partied pretty hard, went skiing and watched an X Japan concert on blu ray ;) alas real life is just around the corner... How about you?
    January 2 12:29 PM
  • RunOfTheMill As am I, brother. Honestly can't think of anyone (that I didn't know personally) who's death has affected me more. But having cathartically jammed Motorhead the past few days reminds me that his music will always be there. Happy new year btw.
    January 2 10:39 AM
  • crossparallel I can't seem to find you with the user search though, maybe leave me a message
    January 1 04:52 PM
  • crossparallel You exchange them for upload gigabytes to keep your ratio. Also, last year freeleech apparently ended on Jan 2nd, so... hurry up I guess?
    January 1 04:51 PM
  • Vorpax We are in a free leech period, you should download as much as possible, so will be easier to keep your ratio later :)
    January 1 04:49 PM
  • crossparallel Going out of stalking to say that if you tell me your JPS username, i could send you some bonus points. Useful for keeping your ratio in the beginning. There was a totally inexplicable situation when I received a lot of these out of thin air and I still have spare ones left now ^^
    January 1 04:46 PM
  • Vorpax Yes, you must read the rules and always keep up your ratio. Do you know the basics about torrenting?
    January 1 04:46 PM
  • Vorpax Sent!
    January 1 04:33 PM
  • Vorpax give me your e-mail
    January 1 04:16 PM
  • Vorpax Jpopsuki, it's a private tracker that contains only japanese music. Do you want to get invited?
    January 1 04:11 PM
  • Vorpax Yeah, I will try to post more often. Are you on JPS infinity?
    January 1 02:34 PM
  • manosg haha not bad at all!
    January 1 12:18 PM
  • manosg Can't complain, it went exactly the way I planned. Hope you had a great time as well.
    January 1 12:07 PM
  • manosg Happy new year Calc bud. Wish you all the best!
    January 1 11:52 AM
  • SachikoM I will. and thank you so much for all of the help along the way. I really appreciate it. :3
    December 22 08:20 AM
  • SachikoM thanks, I'm looking forward to it!! don't think I'll forget about you either, i might even pop in to dubtrack from time to time I'm just having a break to get my life together before it all gets too real on me. take care, and stay posi. :3
    December 22 08:04 AM
  • crossparallel Hahah, I know. I think I will check everything out actually ^^ Thanks!
    December 21 08:38 AM
  • crossparallel I've listened to hardly any really, but I don't believe that should mean I should listen to "easier" metal, anything as long as it is good. Don't care much about genres either. I've heard Dir en grey. And Burzum. And Deafheaven. And Mastodon XD
    December 21 08:28 AM
  • crossparallel Yay! And really, I guess I'll always be a bit uncomfortable with the very existence of ratings and make silly remarks like that, but I also love finding music by others' ratings XD Like I should check some of those metal albums you like. I could listen to more metal.
    December 21 07:58 AM
  • crossparallel And so happy you 5'd I Am Mortal! Is that a 5 or a 4.998? Kidding, kidding. It is brilliant.
    December 21 07:08 AM
  • crossparallel Ooh, Electric Masada is John Zorn! Yes, I should give that a try. I like some of the stuff he did with Naked City, he's crazy ^^ I don't really think MERRY has much to do with anything you enjoy stylewise, but they are good! Maybe check out this live of Gekisei to see if they have a chance with you at all? If you should hear only one thing from all the stuff I infodumped on you though, hear These New Puritans. I can't imagine you won't enjoy Hidden at least a bit.
    December 21 07:05 AM
  • crossparallel PS: Out of the albums you 5'd , guess I should say I've heard Art of Life, Merveilles, Mars, Symphony of the Vampire... but while I recognize they are really well-crafted, they just don't have that special spark for me. California is great though! PPS: And sorry for flooding you with messages like that. Beware next time you ask me about music...
    December 20 06:20 PM
  • crossparallel And then outside of Japan: David Tibet has made some very interesting albums. These New Puritans are my favorite new(ish) band, their albums Hidden and Field of Reeds are masterpieces. You'll also catch me listening to more random folkish music or world music. Shirley Collins is a goddess. Post-punk pioneers. Can't tire of Erik Satie. Nick Cave is brilliant. Etc, etc... hahah, you see, I can find something to love in almost every genre, but there isn't much method to the music I love.
    December 20 05:57 PM
  • crossparallel You'll also catch me listening to Kuroyume, Diru, hide, SOFT BALLET... standard for a B-T fan ^^ Outside of that, really fond of Kazuki Tomokawa. And Jun Togawa is really cool. (Speaking of Diru, B-T, MERRY and Jun Togawa, do you know they all appeared on a tribute album for Endo Michirou? Just heard it yesterday, some awesome tracks there!)
    December 20 05:49 PM
  • crossparallel Yeah, what I have here is more like a collection of albums with personal significance to me whose importance I wanted to acknowledge in some way, but it kinda reads like a list of favorite artists too. In j-rock land, apart from B-T MERRY is a big recent obsession. Really unique band, but their albums tend to be a mix of some brilliant tracks with more standard j-rock fare, one's got to dig a bit to discover the gems. Loving under-world at the moment, probably their best.
    December 20 05:43 PM
  • crossparallel So true about Kodou. I'm really fond of Somewhere Nowhere actually, but I admit it may work out better conceptually than as a song on its own right, and Detarame Yarou is just not their style.
    December 20 02:14 PM
  • crossparallel You 4.5'd Six/Nine ^^ So happy!
    December 20 12:07 PM
  • RikRoach7 Okay, will do, thanks.
    December 19 09:11 AM
  • DrGonzo1937 Well I bought mine off Amazon awhile "used" for really cheap (like 20), but when it cam it was brand new! So check there. The packaging alone was worth 20 price tag like. Ahh, so the DDS on isn't that good? I was looking at that one as well.
    December 13 07:18 AM
  • DrGonzo1937 Also, I know what you mean. They don't stop! haha Japanese work ethics I guess.
    December 13 07:07 AM
  • DrGonzo1937 On Tour13 they were built on the dvd, so I'm sure it'll be pretty easy to attain online with the subs. Tour2011 vol.1,2 are more of a doc on the road to europe and america and just go from gig to gig, where as Tour13 is an actual documentary about the band and such. It was actually really good.
    December 13 07:07 AM
  • DrGonzo1937 Hey buddy. The best doc by far is the "Tour13 Ghoul" dvd, out of the ones I've seen so far. Full-on documentary with English subtitles, and a second disc with a live dvd. TOUR2011 AGE QUOD AGIS Vol.1 and TOUR2011 AGE QUOD AGIS Vol.2 are good, but there's no english subs, just a narrator who speaks in english to give you a very rough idea of what is going on.
    December 13 06:46 AM
  • RunOfTheMill So you've listened to Carrie and Lowell eh? What's it like? I wanna know what all the hubbub is, but I'm too lazy to read reviews. Inform me (;?;)?
    December 10 10:44 AM
  • yourgodisinferior Hey dude! You check out Mosaic yet? Was curious to hear what you thought since like nobody else listens to them.
    December 9 06:16 PM
  • RikRoach7 We'll see - for now I'm busy with their other late work and a lot of other stuff, so who knows what I'll be in the mood for once I find the time to get to the rest of their discography. ;)
    December 8 04:25 PM
  • RikRoach7 I only know the song The Unravelling - since the other songs are rearranged/rerecorded from previous stuff, I assumed that it'd make more sense to get back to that release after getting to know the original versions.
    December 8 04:13 PM
  • RikRoach7 Sounds like something I should like. I'm planning on taking on the rest of their discography chronologically after that - is that advisable?
    December 8 03:32 PM
  • RikRoach7 Regarding DSS, I'm really curious about it. Usually I like it when an album is a grower, and it seems to be just that to most.Regarding 13kwG, we'll see. There a lot of tracks that are amazing, like Romance, Kourin, Alive... - but I can't seem to get into Seraphim.
    December 8 05:03 AM
  • RikRoach7 I have already, but I'm not too fond of rating albums after a few listens, so I'll need a little more time. ^^ Uroboros rules, though. Haven't checked DSS yet, but I know you hold it in high regards. I guess it'll be due in January or so.. I don't want to rush it.Oh, and I checked 13-kai wa Gekkou, listened to it a couple of times, it's great. I have it as a strong 4 at the moment, but ya, I'll wait a little longer till I rate it. ;)
    December 7 05:14 PM
  • ChoccyPhilly I agree, it's going to be one of those albums where i sit back and happily laugh at as I've lost all hope at this point. Not bad! Had a great first term at uni, other than failing to cope with the s*** tonne of work thrown at us but that's all part of it. However, it's time to get to the part where we sort out accommodation for next year and I can imagine some arguments are gonna happen. How about you, man?
    December 6 04:30 PM
  • EasterInTheBatcave I've heard them before, but never a whole album. Is it worth it?
    December 5 10:06 AM
  • RunOfTheMill So I tried out Yume, I didn't like it as much as Kurutta, but I'll give it another listen. I tried 13kai wa gekkou as well, I liked that one a lot even though it's so different.
    December 2 01:16 PM
  • ComeToDaddy Dude, Shakti. I can't stop listening, send help
    December 1 10:12 PM
  • SachikoM Stay posi. :3
    November 30 06:43 PM
  • SachikoM Best to just stay away from the s***storm threads. No good ever comes from them. I only go to them for an occasional laugh, but really they can be pretty sad.... Ignorance is ~bliss~ in this case, I believe.
    November 30 06:36 PM
  • SachikoM Well, I'm inclined to say something like, "did you expect any better?" but at the same time, that is admitting such low expectations already exist, and that is a depressing thought in and of itself. However, chances are six was just being contrarian, so you can at least live believing/hoping that he was being ironic or something.... I don't know tbh, sput just sucks sometimes.
    November 30 06:29 PM
  • AnimalsAsSummit **** yeah dude, thanks. gonna check this as soon as i can, looks awesome
    November 29 10:39 PM
  • discovolante Well, at least there's one song left lol (
    November 27 07:04 PM
  • discovolante Ahh ****, with the new Youtube Red bulls***, the videos are blocked =__=.
    November 27 07:04 PM
  • RunOfTheMill Will do. I'll listen to that video when I'm off work, but in the meantime I figured I'd stop byt and say Jupiter - Sakura -Brain... is omg
    November 27 08:55 AM
  • CamiloG I can see you love them based on your ratings, I will definetly check them. Cheers.
