Eito's album came out on the 16th... I didn't order it, saving money for concert DVD later on.
As usual, they provide three versions. LE A, B and RE. Uhm... Yea.. Carry on then...
The album contains 15 songs + 3 additional songs for the Regular Edition which are the unit songs and one song composed by Yasu. I can't believe it has been 2 years since FIGHT look how fast time flew. Maybe it's only me, but Eito's albums somehow got its own specific theme. Like Kansha ni Eito, KJ1 & KJ2 was like "We'll do anything, please do notice us. We got everything for everyone!"; Puzzle got this nostalgia theme going on; 8Uppers with its mature & serious sound which fit the movie; FIGHT was lighter, more uplifting. The latest album, JUKEBOX got this 'manly' feeling in it... ... in a way...( Collapse )Overall:
This is pretty much a nice album. Not as superb as 8Uppers, but definitely better than PUZZLE.
And as my title stated, YASU IS amazingly confusing. He wrote many diverse songs. Like we can definitely tell which artist that he listen to (my guess: Miyavi, lots of GreeeeN, Kyaripamyupamyu while making Crouton
). This guy got too many influence it's getting hard to find his true core. I mean I thought he would stick to his acoustic guitar performance like Watashi Kagami, Kimi to Boku,
(and Sankyoudai's songs). But then he came out with Desire, Crouton, 'Tte!!, Snow White
& Your Wurlitzer
. And all of them are listenable! Other Johnnys like TOKIO and Kinki Kids who often wrote their own music, got this distinct sound of their own. Ryo stuck with his adoration of Saito Kazuyoshi, Jin definitely with his US's sound. But not Yasu. Yasu is weird.. Yasu is scary.
Ok, I have to go to work now... :(
