I guess singers' voices do change over time. Toshi's voice is not the same, either. Or his vocalisation technique changed. Both of them sound more refined now versus a rawer, crispier sound back in those days. I don't know why but Ryuichi's voice creeps me out. I cannot. Seriously. I only watch their stuff because of Sugizo, LOL :D The songs are good, though.

- 悲壮美

and 11 more songs.

I think I've listened to higher and higher on yt.

But 13 songs on it. Really cool. Sounds like a decent length on the Album. Hopefully about an our music.

Let me be completely honest, I don’t have high hopes because Luna Sea’s new material is verh lackluster, aside from a few Sugizo’s songs. Songs like Rough and Yamibi are a standout, those are grata, but A Will was very lame imo and A Luv (cringe) was better but still very mediocre.

I know X Japan has release very few material, but it’s still been higher quality than Luna Sea. There’s no point in releasing a lot of stuff if it’s not good. Sugizo’s songs and his latest solo album was very good, so maybe let him lead both bands? :)

tbh the best song of X Japan after reunion is imho Beneath the S.K.I.N.

...which is also a Sugizo song  8)

Exactly my point nb. They should all let Sugizo make the songs and they can just play them  :D ;)

yeah, you are right.

And in both bands he wasn't when they formed the bands. But it seems he is very dedicated or let me say... into the bands. I think he really tries to participate as much as he can in the creative process.

I read somewhere he wasn't pleased with the last years of X, because he always wants to get up and tour and be active anx creative. But I'm not sure about it. Maybe it's a false memory..

If Sugizo taking over means we get more good music I'm all for that.  :D

That’s interesting. I mean, I wouldn’t be surprised if that was the case, very understandable but I’d be surprised that he actually said it! 😄 haha Because in X he always seems to be very passive about criticism and all that.

Luna Sea's new album has been released today. I am considering to download it from iTunes instead of buying the CD.
Anyway, listened to the sample,  the songs I like more are Closer and Higher & Higher.

Well, I don’t think we will get a new X album anytime soon.  >:(
That‘s why I need to transfer my attention somewhere else, in this case,  Luna Sea.  ;D

Sorry, I missed to reply your post.
Yes, I have heard of Show Ya. I don't have much opinion because I have only listened to a couple of their songs back in the day.
The only thing is, that I am not too into female singers/bands.  ::)
How about you? I wonder how you got to know so many Japanese music/bands.

I like Luna Sea since many many years ago, only not as much as X. Recently, I spent much time watching their concerts I can find on Youtube.
I must say their performance were all first class. ;D
