I have to say that some recently uploaded videos to YouTube from NEO POP STANDARD studio lives are really great. Hello Sunshine Hello Future sounds very good with a guitar instead synth. Also, they are playing Insane from orcd.
havent listened to their stuff since their rap/rock era and well its strange to hear a different sound but its good that they experiment with new genres...and im pretty sure that they never touched the R&B route...but maybe im wrong o.O
I'm a die hard fan of their rap rock era, most like the 2 or 3 first long play releases. But I understand this album, in some way it's the disc that "world world world" really wanted to be. I think that this is just a phase, the next album will be a little more rocker. And after all we have to understand that 10 year have gone from their first indie release, people changes, music taste changes, I respect ORANGE RANGE and like their personalities, this is a great mature album of grown up musicians.
