Psycho le Cemu
- Beautiful World ~Kono Hitomi Ni Utsuranai Mono~
(only mp3s: no album: no cover!)
Note: 7,5/10, because there are some really good songs... although still too many "easy/commercial" songs for me! But far better than their previous/first major album!
First of all, I want to say I'm happy: THEY FINALLY REMEMBERED HOW A REAL HEAVY
SONG IS MADE, DAMN IT!
Although we mustn't jum to the roof too quickly: these heavy songs aren't the majority of their album... although maybe an honorable 1/3-1/4, all of them aren't -great-, but some of them are really good (beginning with Neo!). Some soup-songs-composed-to-have-some-stupid-hand-choregraphies remain, but at least they're better composed than on their previous album, and rock influences are far more obvious here, not awful pop or I don't know what! (because there is good pop! michi no sora is most most pop for example, but I love it!) I admit there are still some "not really usefull songs" (I really don't like omoide aruki for example, or the pseudo-rapped song One Day: it has a very good riff at first... but this pseudo-rap wastes everything!), some more or less good tries in the middle of the album (sometimes I like, sometimes I hate, depending on my mood!), but if you skip songs from omoide aruki to yume kazaguruma (save Moonlight Dance maybe) you'll have a really good rock/jrock album, with its really boosted songs sometimes even quite metal, one or two comic-songs, the eternal not-always-usefull-but-unskippable ballad, some slightly "popper" songs, but good pop!
In the end this isn't an exceptionnal album, but at least they're back on the good way, and I can listen and re-listen to it without my ears to suffer too much! And, I insist, they're back on the way of light! GO ON GUYS, NEXT IS THE GOOD ONE, YEAH!
