  • For those wondering about the pronunciation of the title - 快楽 is most commonly read as "kairaku", but "keraku" is also a valid reading, possibly an old/outdated one. Arika *usually* uses the "keraku" reading throughout this album.
  • I haven't really cared about ALI PROJECT's new music for years. I would listen once or twice and move on, but Keraku no Susume is awesome, I really like every track except #1 and both #10s.
  • Happy Birthday, Arika!
  • I actually see this album as a grown up version of Ryuukou Sekai, of course this is not a bad thing haha. My favorites are 狩猟令嬢ジビエ日誌 (7), 異端者たちの悦楽 (2), 快楽のススメ (3), 禁忌 TABOO (6) and 放蕩娘と無慈悲な遊戯 (4). But, I guess I like the whole album and I couldn't expect nothing more from the lyrics that are perfect for the theme, a mix of lust, desire, sex and, of course, pleasure <3
  • Yeah, it's absolutely incredibly, quite possibly my new favourite! I wish last.fm would hurry up and give 快楽のススメ a proper page with artwork though; it's been out long enough now. My favourites are 陸と海と空と (1), わたしは欲望という名の處女 (5), 狩猟令嬢ジビエ日志 (7), アタラクシア、そして対峙する自己 (8) and Golden Slumbers Kiss Your Eyes (10 - limited edition). Overall though, all songs are brilliant, it's a very experimental album, and in my opinion, pulled off excellently!
  • Kairaku no Susume is an amazing album, it's better than I expected.
  • The lines from Kinki TABOO "Darkness is true / Punishment is real" are the best way to describe Keraku no Susume <3
  • i like it :) kairaku no susume is awesome album. 陸と海と空と is the best song in kairaku no susume album in my opinion :D
  • Everyone's been super quiet lately...where have you all gone?! I was waiting to give others a chance, but I'm too excited, so here's two 35 second previews of the music videos for the new album!! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KsfCj--rEEM and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6wlAlf3Uk4M. They sound absolutely amazing!! I'm pre-ordering the special edition of the new album this Sunday. Who's excited?! I most definitely am!!
  • Not long now until the new album「快楽のススメ」(Kairaku no Susume - Advice of Pleasure)! The song names on the tracklist look really interesting, and the album artwork is stunning!! (http://www.generasia.com/wiki/Kairaku_no_Susume). Not sure why they've written the romaji on the artwork as 'Keraku' rather than 'Kairaku' though. I can't wait!!
