Man, I don't know how to feel about Walkure deciding to charge more for albums. I hope this isn't doesn't mean they are financially hurting or something.

Well it seems to me that they are releasing less than they did at one point, so less releases generally = less cash (my accountancy skillz are the stuff of legend).

You do of course run the risk if you ramp the prices up too much that people will just go, "meh, I'll wait till I can find a second hand copy".

Thankfully they put pretty much everything out on iTunes anyway so it shouldn't affect me personally...

Looking back at some of their past releases, I realize they've actually cleared the 3000 yen mark plenty of times before. Like the last Concerto Moon album was that much. I think I'm just overreacting and didn't really notice it until now.

Apparently, the new album features a cover of classic soul chestnut "Da Doo Ron Ron" by the Chrystals, as in this:



Er... WTF?!?!?

sample lyrics:

I met him on a Monday and my heart stood still
Da do ron-ron-ron, da do ron-ron
Somebody told me that his name was Bill
Da do ron-ron-ron, da do ron-ron

Yeah, my heart stood still
Yes, his name was Bill
And when he walked me home
Da do ron-ron-ron, da do ron-ron


I think they've been consuming the same hallucinogenic substances as Galneryus' Sho did before making his infinitely wise selections of songs for his covers album.

To be fair, I hate it when HR/HM bands just plod through faithful covers of other HR/HM songs...so at least it's not that...but still!

Can you say Ba-Ba-Ba Ba-Barbara Ann? Wink It's gonna be one of those kinds of album throw-ins, a la Blind Guardian.

Ugh that one still pisses me off. Having "Ba-Ba-Ba Ba-Barbara Ann" suddenly blare at you after the epic album closer is too much of a mood swing even for me.

It doesn't sound half bad on 'Tokyo Tapes' though.

Maybe it's the "Blind" thing? Wink

aaaaaand...here goes with the MV:



First listen sounds good. This was a blind buy anyway (ha ha. pun intended) for me but always good to have expectations confirmed. Bring it on.
