  • One of the best bands in the world. Fuck your genre labels.
  • The close band is Ne Oblisviscaris
  • I'd be very surprised if some of their stuff wasn't inspired by The Mars Volta.
  • TK's singing is erotic.
  • Heheh.. to be young and ignorant... i feel old now..
  • Какие же классные. Нет вообще песен, которые пропускаешь мимо (как обычно бывает, слушая альбомы понравившихся исполнителей). И не надоедают вообще!
  • Nevermind. I think I know what TK's solo music is in terms of genre. It's closest to being experimental rock. Apparently bands like Radiohead (which I love) have increasingly blended other musical genres such as electronica, jazz, and classical for some of their more experimental rock albums. Makes sense really because I recently found out that TK occasionally uses an acoustic-electric guitar when he plays music. Meaning he's really attempting to push the boundaries of common performance techniques.
  • jessicotomie. Sorry you think that because I wasn't shouting. But if you don't like my comments you are free to ignore them like I do on any type of social media.
  • \/ I'm afraid you've shouted at the wrong place. your explanation should be written in your personal diary. have a good day. cheers.
  • I neither agree or disagree. Sure while I don't really have anything against the label JRock. I understand why it exists. If some wish to use it, well, it is still perfectly reasonable considering nobody can deny Ling Tosite Sigure's music originates from Japan. I mean the lyrics, obviously. Though I have played their music in a classroom and I will tell you this: everyone for a moment wasn't even aware it was being sung in an entirely different language. Sort of had to mention the music was being sung in Japanese to my fellow peers at the time. :) Ha, the power of music. Breaching across those language barriers (though that is not to say any one is trying to globalize their music). Their music is fine the way it is. BTW: Let's not be so harsh. It's important to note that even anime fans are regular people and they definitely have other interests besides anime. That is only one label.
