Journal

  • Taste Evolution.

    28 Oct 2006, 13:50 by dieskies

    I found it to be a good idea to write this journal seeing eklipse's journal much similar to this, except my past taste wasn't bad in some areas and I'm not too embarrassed.

    7 Years Ago and before: I listened to mostly movie scores because they produced some type of image in my mind, when I found that music could do this I really liked these kinds of songs. I also listened to alot of my dad's CDs like J. Geils Band,Led Zeppelin, AC/DC , or whatever CD/cassette my dad would have in his car. In fairly modern rock (it's the late 90s), I liked Creed, Sugar Ray, Green Day, and Puddle of Mudd.

    6 Years Ago: I listened to purely top 40 of 2001--Britney Spears (when she wasn't as bad--you know, Oops I Did It Again, Lucky, that stuff) and N*Sync in particular. I had some friends who would only discuss who the cutest member of N*SYNC was. I also liked Eminem a bit, but my mom never let me buy his album. Though this was a bad stage, it only lasted for about...6 months. …

  • new deal

    9 Aug 2006, 15:16 by bongo2000

    [ 8月8日の出来事 ]

     今日はCDを2枚、入手しました。

    globe のミニアルバム『new deal』
     彼らにとって初めてのミニアルバム。
     ラテンなにおいを出した2曲と、アルバム『maniac』 (2006) でも試みられたバンドセッション形式による3曲で構成。
     あまり支持を得られなかったトランス色はなくなったけれど、ラテンを追求されてしまったら、それもどうかと思ったり。
     一方でバンドセッションによる3曲は、文句なくカッコイイ。ぼくとしては生音方面へ進んでくれたほうが、うれしいです。
     なお収録されている曲はどれも最近のglobeらしく、えらくとんがってます。

    坂本サトル のライブアルバム『LIVE alone 3 ~Tour LIVE alone 3 20050502-0710』
     5作目となるライブアルバム。
     7月26日にリリースされていたのに、気づきませんでした。
     彼のオフィシャルサイトはこまめにチェックしていたつもりだったのですが。
     2,000枚限定生産なので店舗での購入は無理と判断し、昨日の朝、amazonで発注。今日の夜にはもう届いていました。
     本作は、ギター弾き語りライブの模様が収められており、このタイプのライブアルバムはもう3枚目になるわけですが、、彼の声とギターの表情豊かな様子には、改めて驚かされます。
     ただ、どうしても耳で聴くだけでは伝わってこない部分もあり、そこがちょっともどかしいところ。
     彼のライブに参加できたら、それがいちばんよいのですけれど。
  • Thought About TK

    28 Jul 2006, 09:13 by Di-chy

    Tetsuya Komuro aka TK, a high-profile pop/dance music producer in Japan who's best known for producing a number of hit songs and albums especially in the 1990s, is one of my heroes. I spent my teenage years with a lot of his songs performed by various artists from TRF to globe to 安室奈美恵, and have recently realized that I really appreciate his music.

    Not only did he write catchy and "karaoke-friendly" melodies for the pop audience, he has brought a heavy sounds of floor-oriented / music in the market. Particularly in the '90s, his music was always very balanced between pop songcraft and heavier dance music, and that's why I liked it a lot. For example, even now I think that "Boy Meets Girl" by TRF is the best dance-pop song ever in the j-pop history.

    Some critics and snobs are still blaming TK for "producing fast-food music and corrupting the j-pop audience." However, that doesn't even make sense to me…
  • globeの意外なランキング

    27 Jul 2006, 15:49 by digitatorkura

    globeのランキングを見てちょいと驚いた。
    現在のベスト5↓
     1. genesis of next
     2. DEPARTURES
     3. Feel Like dance
     4. Love again
     5. Can't Stop Fallin' in Love

     なななんと1位がgenesis of nextとは。いや、globeの曲の中ではベストだと俺も思うけども、DEPARTURESほどには認知されてない曲でしょ。

     やっぱ genesis of next は、曲も詞も秀逸やわね。何かこう、光線が突き抜けるような、スキッとしたこう、ねぇ。(全然分からん)globe[album]Lights[/album][track]genesis of next[/track]
