Toshi's new song 'Masquerade' (2018 January)
« on: January 15, 2018, 09:32:10 AM »
So, apparently Toshi recorded a song called Masquerade for a TV series called Maskmen.

You can listen to a 1 minute extract here, unfortunately the song is only available on iTunes Japan.

https://itunes.apple.com/jp/album/%E3%83%9E%E3%82%B9%E3%82%AB%E3%83%AC%E3%82%A4%E3%83%89-single/1334513238

According to this article, Toshi is also the composer of the song. https://natalie.mu/music/news/265019
X-ed pretty hard on first listen. My first Japanese band and second Japanese music love after Miyavi.  My Interview with Yoshiki

That's very nice and his voice sounds great.  I wonder why only iTunes, Japan, though. Not fair! lol.  I wonder if it will be available on some other site, some other way or maybe a video released? That would be great.
Sometimes our tears blinded the love
We lost out dreams along the way
But I never thought you'd trade your soul to the fates
Never thought you'd leave me alone

This feels very reminiscent. Like it's something similar from his "Aoi Hoshi no Tabibito" album, but I can't quite put my finger on it. With that being said, it sounds nice so far, but without fully listening to it, I can't really give a proper opinion on it.

Oh I liked this a lot! I liked the shot up above at the start of the video. Toshi on the piano. Watch out Yoshiki! He even does the dramatic Yoshiki trademark at the end too! Nice job.

Somehow it sounds like every other ToshI song I have heard... Not bad but...
