Last week was amazing. Not only did I finally get around to pre-ordering After Autumn (COME TO ME, AUGUST.), but my birthday was last week.
YOU KNOW WHAT THAT MEANS. SOTA FUJIMORI'S SYNTHESIZED3 ALBUM IS OUT. GLKDJSLKJ
FUCK MY BIRTHDAY, I DON'T WANT TO BE 20 ANYWAY. THIS ALBUM IS THE ONLY THING THAT MATTERS.
I hyped this album for 3 long months, had astronomically high expectations for it, and it is better than I expected.
Everything about this album is flawless. THE TWO SOUNDTRACKS UP IN HERE (GTI Club and NEO CONTRA), ALL THE BEMANI JAMS, THAT ONE PIANO BALLAD OFF THE COMPOSERS ALBUM, PIANO VERSION OF FLY ABOVE. HOLY SHIT.
While on the subject of music, I actually did give capsule's new album a listen. I wasn't really expecting anything and I guess in a way I got what I was expecting: absolutely nothing. It's a very bland album with no real appeal imho. The songs all drag on too long without any sort of progressiveness to them that makes them interesting to listen to. Highly disappointed in the album and I side-eye the people on last.fm even more.
Don't get me wrong, I get that taste in music differs between people and all that, but seriously?
Stop treating WORLD OF FANTASY like it's the best capsule album. FRUITS CLiPPER and Sugarless GiRL slay WORLD OF FANTASY any day. I used to really like Nakata's work, but I have no idea what even happened to his music lately. capsule has been on a downward slope since Sugarless GiRL and I haven't cared about Perfume since GAME. I get that he produces many people, but that's not an excuse. There are some doujin artists that release several albums a year (sometimes upwards of 3) and still come up with things more creative than what Nakata's pumping out.( Collapse )
And this opinion has nothing to do with my taste in music not having range. I listen to some of the funkiest shit imaginable and enjoy it. For example, BLACK EYED PEAS IN MY TOUHOU? WHAT IS THIS.
(omg I love that song so much ide.) I also like a lot of music that I'll openly admit is a bunch of shit. I'm not afraid to call out what I think is shit music and what isn't. At least I have the metaphorical balls to elaborate on why I think that way instead of just bagging on the artist.
