BxMxC is the best track on the album. I feel Oh! MAJINAI comes off as just too silly and is the only track i'm not a massive fan of. if I rate the previous two albums 9/10 this is a 8/10 with only Oh! MAJINAI bringing it down.

On first listen I truly don't know how to describe this album, except that it's kind of like blindly grabbing a handful of candy out of a Halloween bag and eating it all at once. It's so fucking all over the place, but in a way I like. My immediate favorites are Brand New Day (I never imagined Polyphia's sound would mesh so well with Babymetal), Kagerou, BxMxCx, Arkadia, and DA DA DANCE out of the non-singles. Shanti x3, Elevator Girl, and Starlight are all still bops too (never got into Distortion though, it feels REALLY incomplete during the verses). My main gripe with this album is just how much fucking autotune is all over Su's vocals though. I just saw them live a month ago and the girl can sing her ass off and then some, so it blows my mind that they feel the need to drench her voice in so many effects. And honestly, it feels like she's mixed a bit low on some songs too, there's so much going on that her vocals struggle to come through at times.

I think this album is definitely going to grow on me though, even the songs like Oh! Majinai, BBAB, and NNB that didn't really leave much of an impression on first listen. But I'm one of those unabashed fanboys that just really loves how much fun most of their music is, and I appreciate that each of the three albums has a pretty distinct quality to it so far.

I've been waiting for this for many long months and time has finally came, this record leaked literally 5 minutes after my heart has been broken to thousands of pieces and now I'm listening to it crying tears of sadness and happiness at the same time.

 

Please guys, support this band as much as you can! this is true beauty, already pre-ordered my bundle.

Peace brothers <3

Too much autotune and other electro stuff going on, not enough metal. They try so hard to be legitimized as a metal band, play metal festivals, appear in metal magazines but then release their poppiest album to date, it makes no sense. 

 

There are some great moments on the album though, like BxMxC, Shanti, Kagerou, Da Da Dance, Starlight, Distortion and parts of other songs. The new mix on Starlight is terrible and songs like Pa Pa Ya and Shanti sound out of place because all other songs have this 'future' vibe with synths and stuff. Also, I'm waiting for Arkadia live proshot because the background sounds/choirs are way too loud. ITNO and Future Metal are just useless fillers, they said that they've recorded a few more songs that didn't make it to the album, I'd rather hear that.

 

The album isn't that great as a whole but there are some great ideas and songs. It's not nearly as creative as the previous two, that's for sure. They're definitely trying to gain western fans at all costs but that's what you get with fabricated bands from talent agencies.

Solid album, a clusterfuck of sounds and some songs are so much catchier or just straight up more interesting than others and I would never subject myself to listen through this front to back again but the greatest songs on this are definitely very enjoyable (Shanti, BMC, Brand New Day for example). Still, the band seems to be nicely maturing and finding a better sound with each album drop, which is nice.

Okay y'all, fixed the tracklist to feel more like an actual cohesive album (especially like their first two) and it's far more palatable like this.

About half of it I like, and the other half I don't like. The last 4 songs are probably my favorite, with Arkadia being my number 1 tbh

Finally getting a chance to listen.

This album is such a mixed bag. Some songs are great, and others I practcally hate, like track 5. Holy shit it's terrible. And it pretty much insults me that they would put an awesome breakdown in the middle of it, especially with the awfulness that came before and after it.

everything is pretty fucking great, most to all growers too which I personally like, though, bmc is easily the worst song they ever made. possibly the worst song to come out of an established Japanese artist ever, what an abomination is that.
