BAND-MAID -「start over」(July 25, 2018)
#11
No guitar solo. Piano centric. Don't like it.
#12
I didn't hate it, but I hope this isn't a new direction they're taking (the title kinda indicates it though).
#13
I don't think they care if we like it... I mean, the last line is

"I don't give a fuck"

I'm going to reserve judgement until it releases.

Between Bridear playing the bait and switch with Dear Bride, and World Domination being their hardest rock to date, I'm guessing this will be just another blip like Daydreaming was.

Hah, you weren't kidding. Doesn't that kind of go against their imagery? I like nice maids not mean ones. Laugh
Occasionally, I write Western and Japanese music reviews.

I liked it, sometimes their stuff can sound a little samey so to me something slightly left-field is to be welcomed. That said I could see it not going down that well with some of the established fanbase.
#16
Yeah, esp. since they were going in a more heavy direction with each release. Now this isn't exactly back to "Maid in Japan" or anything.

I agree. I think some of their more recent tracks have been pretty forgettable and lacking melody. This is a nice change of pace

Kanami probably just wanted a chance to show off her piano skills Wink

It's Saiki. She's always been the 'mean' one. Miku is the 'nice' one. Allegedly Wink
Feel free to request a translation here. And check out my previous work in this section.
Please bear it mind I'm always busy though and it may take a while!

I kinda like it? Misa has always been a pretty good bass player, but she really gets to shine on that.

...and is it just me, or does Saiki look better the less makeup she wears?

Totally unsurprised to see it was Kanami on the piano, too.

...and lastly, it sure looks like that video is aimed at a Western market.
