Vocaloid hide.....seems a be a bit in bad taste but that's just me.

So, this is obviously an old topic, but the new song has been released for quite some time now.

Here is the 'vocaloid hide' version of the song.

And here is the original demo version of the song, which was also released.

What do you think?

By the way, X Japan Podcast did a pretty good episode (in two parts - part 1 and part 2) on this song and hide in general, about a year ago. Part 1 also includes an interview with Eric Westfall, who worked with hide's solo projects as a sound engineer.

This is my administrator color.
