Once again, Galneryus has demonstrated how great power metal can be when it's done correctly. Absolutely amazing.

What we should be questioning at the moment is whether SYU is actually human.

Their best record in a while iMO. Absolutely awesome.
EDIT: OK this has some really strong tracks but has grown off me a bit. A solid entry from a long-running band, but not
really on the same level as their older stuff. They should the long-awaited Yama-B Sho crossover album to reinvigorate

|3.5 great||Robinanimate | September 25th 20|
I agree that Shu makes Galneryus amazing. He is also the saving grace that keeps the Galneryus battleship afloat. This album has great instrumentation, but the songwriting is not memorable. The choruses are as conveyer-belt mass productions as can be, and the vocals are just above par. I miss the first singer. He might not be as technical as this guy, but at least he had a personal touch, which is something most Japanese metal vocalists are lacking. With the exception of Toshi and Anchang of course. Not a bad album, just not something I will come back to.

I don't know why people keep loving the new stuff because ever since Under the Force of Courage Galneryus has been nothing but average, I mean come on, I play new album and then I play AoS or Resurrection and there's a huge songwriting difference.

Galneryus seems like a more metallized version of X Japan minus the Barry Manilow kind of ballad drudgery this band has been playing. Remain Behind is the only thing that comes close to the X Japan ballads and it obviously stinks. Sometimes fun to listen to, sometimes awfully cheesy, sometimes boring and too samey. Not for the lactose intolerant mind you. The singer emulates the X Japan vocalist perfectly though, even when he tries to sing in English which gets very comical. Not too impressed of power metal versions of AC/DC, keen on dishing out the same album after album to please their fan-base. Stuck in a rut bands are not my taste, I like my metal more varied. You heard one Galneryus record, you kinda heard them all. So far, after 2 spins, the only song that somehow sticks out is the 4th one with an interesting section emerging from minute 18:00 to about 20:00. although I get a deja vu feeling about it. There are a few more entertaining sections in some other sections, but most of them emerge when the wankery is not present. And the obvious awful moments, such as in track 6. Had I been a guitar fetishist I probably would have rated this album even higher. Since I am not, and care more about songwriting and song structuring, this is mostly pedestrian music for me. Fun to listen to sometimes, gets old after a few songs and you start using the forward button, and very few memorable sections.
