While I don't mind a 709sec. rock song (even though his engrish is damn terrible) or even a metal arrange here and there, I'm not too big on their full rock/heavy rock arrange albums craze lately. I think their guitar trance and ethnic songs are pretty amazing, but they aren't that great at rock/metal - not bad either, but it gets very boring after a while. And I found Metallical Astronomy very disappointing compared to their great series of vocal arrange albums, or even TOHO PIANISM I.
Really though, a circle is a collaboration of musicians, right, as a whole and on each particular track, no? So isn't tagging each song separately kinda wrong; I mean, would you start tagging Pink Floyd songs as 'Roger Waters'?
Everything off the - 地 -KUNI- album is tagged as SOUND HOLIC by more people than those who tag each individual artist. As much as I personally understand the difference between a circle and a band, I have to retag everything in WMP since it imports all foreign characters as gibberish, and it's never clear how to tag properly, especially when so many people are involved in producing one track.
