Title: (Band) GLAY
Post by: redux on October 02, 2007, 09:51:31 PM
One of the first bands I heard of when I was getting into Japanese music was GLAY, but at the time I was on 56k Internet and so it was virtually impossible to get hold of their stuff. I got broadband and still found it was difficult to track any downloads down, finally now that I have torrents I've downloaded the discorgaphy and I'm really quite impressed. Either no-one's thought to think of making a therad for them because simple no-one likes them or well...they just haven't. So...any thoughts?

daigong edit....for EPICness...thank you thank you Kaizer for settin it up :heart:

Post by: ©MicHi on October 02, 2007, 10:27:20 PM
yup, actually b4 i start in to the H!P world, i was a glay freak... its kinda the starting for me into the japs song... i started hear them on the 2001, when one love album just came out if i not mistaken~ the song was really really nice!!! their old song also nice, then i bought the compilation album, glay best n etc... then i wanted to watch their vclip, i bought the "GLAY VIDEO 1 to 5" and it was so COOL!!! i like the way hisashi playin' the guitar!! kakoii!!!

the 1st concert i watch is the 2001 tour!! it was so nice... enenehehehe...its been long time since i talk bout glay... but i just bought two of their concert last month, the ROCK n ROLL SWINDLE 2006, and THE FRUSTRATED TOUR @ UNIVERSAL STUDIO 2004... the universal studio concert was SO NICE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

although in my heart now is H!P and AKB48, but sumtimes i feel like wanna change mood, i play GLAY song~

@cookie holiday: wow, where do u download the disco??? and do u know where i can download the other glay concert, like ONE LOVE concert and etc???

Whoa..a Glay topic. They're like my favorite and I own almost everything they've released. Yeah..not many people seem to like them for some reason.
Title: Re: (Band) Glay
Post by: redux on October 02, 2007, 11:19:17 PM
Yeah I was really surprised that no-one had evenstarted a topicfor them here, nevermind not discuss them. I've only listened to the first two albums so far but they already seem brilliant., they were actually one fo the reasons I got into JPop too, I heard a 30 second preview of "Two Bell Silence" which is an awesome song...only now I've been able to find more of their stuff.

@©MicHi - I've just been able to start using torrents so I found their stuff there, here's the link for the discography (up until Love is Beautiful album I think, if you want a link for that too jsut let me know.) - http://mullemeck.serveftp.org/jps_beta/index.php?page=details&id=30844

Unfotrunately it's not being seeded, so it may take a while to download (took me about 2 days over a 1MB connection).

Also I've had a search through a fair few sites and come up with this - http://www.isohunt.com/download/14358037/one+love

BUT, this may not be the One Love tour, it's up to you whether you want to download it. I can't find a torrent description but the file is around 700MB so I'm guessing there's a good chance it is what you're looking for...I'm downloading myself right now because I want to know myself so if you can't be bothered getting it right now I'll let you know in a few days.

I remember when Glay was THE biggest thing in J-pop, bar none.  All over TV, every single a number-one hit.  They appeared chipped off the Luna Sea block but skyrocketed to an arguably higher level of popularity.  Are they still in the Guinness Book for playing a concert in front of the largest audience ever assembled?

First song I ever heard from them was "Glorious."  Rockin' good tune.
Title: Re: (Band) Glay
Post by: donkeykong83 on October 03, 2007, 12:47:33 PM
Yeah 1997-1999 was their year. It was all about GLAY. Hell...even jumbo planes had their faces painted on it. Thats how big they were. They were still able to remain big up until around 2003 where their popularity and sales slowly started going down...which is pretty sad.
And yeah they still hold the record for the largest concert ever held in Japan which was back in 1999.
And heres some other interesting info...

# Their first compilation album, "Review", was the best selling album of all time in Japan in 1997. As of 2007, it is ranked at #3. Back then the album even made it into the World Guinness Books of Record for being the biggest/fastest selling album or something. But that record has probably been broken a long time ago.
# In 1998, Japan's telephone service was temporarily put out of order to allow for the mass number of fans to reserve tickets to their upcoming tour.
# Their contract transfer from Pony Canyon to Toshiba EMI is the most expensive transfer in Japan's history, at 4 billion yen.
# The live held in Beijing (a sold-out live of 35,000 audience members) in October 2002 is the most expensive gig in China's history.
# "Yuuwaku" was the biggest selling single in 1998.
# their "Survival" video single is still the biggest selling musical video in Japan.

^ Righto will do! I'll get started on it now, I don't think there'll be any problems with the files but my download stuck at 99.99% so I just cancelled and they all seem fine (so far).

EDIT: Does anyone have and preference of where I upload them to? I'm gonna stick them on Megaupload once they're done but just let me know if there's anywhere else you'd like them for whatever reasons.

This link contains the first four studio albums (Hai to Diamond, Speed Pop, Beat Out! and Beloved).

That's another 5 albums from GLAY, these ones to be precise:

Pure Soul, Heavy Gauge, One Love, Unity Roots & Family and The Frustrated.

I've still got to upload the best of albums and compilations as well as the "Love Is Beautiful" album. I'll get onto that later tonight or when I get home tomorrow.

EDIT: For some reason I wrote "6 albums" in the megaupload description but it's just those five I've listed here, sorry.

Why don't you just re-seed the torrent at http://mullemeck.serveftp.org/jps_beta/index.php?page=details&id=30844 (http://mullemeck.serveftp.org/jps_beta/index.php?page=details&id=30844), or create a new one if you are unable? Then let others seed them again.

Just checked the torrent, theres about 25 leechers on it right now, 15 are at 99 %. You probably just have to seed for about 2 minutes, for everyone to get 100%.

Title: Re: (Band) Glay
Post by: redux on October 08, 2007, 01:26:35 PM
Not everyone can use torrents or they may not be registered at the site that's why. Anyway you're a bit late, I've already upped all the albums except the latest one which is damn easy to find on the Internets on various sites. The only stuff I haven't uploaded is compilations or best hit albums (which I wil ldo if someone requests). I'm thinkin' of the people you know?

Glay is awesome. They were the first ones to really get me into the world of jrock and jpop. I first got into them in 2002 and still love them. :]

^ Hi Daigong. : D Too bad I can't make it to the upcoming concert (again). So broke.  :depressed: I've been wanting to see them ever since I got into them...  :(

Yeah? I think so too. They're really unique imo but I only know a few people who are really into them like me. Some people I know even make fun of them because their music is "soft", unlike the so hxc bands like the Gazette, Dir en Grey, etc.

My favourite live? From the ones I've watched, I'd have to say HIGHCOMMUNICATIONS or One Love. xD What about you?

Title: Re: (Band) Glay

People go early too!

if you wanna experience the Teru Spraying water in your face experience, which is amazing, you gotta get there are at least 9 am.

&I really hope there's lots of Japanese fans there because they make the entire experience charming, with the cheering and the jumping at the end, I've never had that before but it was nice to bond with these girls that came from so far away :3
I think I met a girl who went to the Glay Expo in 2001 IDD

Anyways, that's what I love about these concerts is that you really meet people from all over and even though it's the meaning of Global Communication, in the ends it's One Love and you really get to know what it means :3

Dai: Thanks Dai. xD

Woo!  :canada:

I love like 99% of Glay's songs. xD It just depends on my mood on which ones I'm going to listen to.  :D


Scarlet: Awesomeeeee you got to go! And you get to go AGAIN! I'm so jealous. TT^TT

Yay for Takuro in your avatar! xD

Omg which reminds me, there was this girl who wrote a blog about going to their concert last year, and she was saying how what Teru did was gross (as if the bands here don't do that), that after the first song it got really boring (she isn't a fan, a friend of her just invited her to come), and that Jiro should start his own punk band and leave the rest of Glay because they were dead weights.  :roll: She makes me raaaaaaaaaaaaageeeeee so much, up until now. :angry:

@Kaizer: lol thanks, the only thing you don't have to envy is the wait in line, it's craziness and today it's 100 degrees, I'm praying it'll get cooler by the time Glay is in L.A. because those sidewalks get HOOOOT! D8

lol thanks XDD
I likes yours too :3

omg I read that, that girl seems very full of herself. And come on, that's something mostly all entertainers do, I've seen those big time macho wrestler guys do it, it's a cool crowd thing D:
but I agree, buying one single years ago does not qualify you to know everything about glay and this girl acts like she's seen cartoons more entertaining, she obviously is not into the music and is pretty much saying that it's beneath her. That's insulting.
Because even reporters who were there, not even listening to a bit of Japanese music made decent critiques, how is it that a girl with a blog can be a better judge? Specially one who didn't want to be there? I'm blaming it on her attitude, not the band.

That was in San Fran though, i was in L.A. and the atmosphere was different!
I'll try to talk more about it in the piece that Dai wants me to write :3

but yes Kai, it's bullocks, don't fret, we all know they rock <3

^ Oh I know. But still it'll be worth the wait! I've been wanting to see them live since 03.  :gyaaah: How long have you been a fan?

That would be much better though, I hate the heat. >-<

She IS. She talks like she knows EVERYTHING about them. Yeah it's VERY insulting. I know it's her opinion but god, she wrote it in her blog, which is public, which will be read by TONS of GLAY fans. =__=

Nasty attitude lol.

Okay ^^ Omg I still really want to go.  :cry:

Anyway, yeah, they definitely rock!  :twothumbs

I've been a fan since 04 :3
My cousin really liked Japanese music and she made me a mix CD.
I told her I liked the 3rd track that was "Rain" and she let me borrow how new One Love Album XD
and it all just escalated from there, I was mostly into Moi Dix Mois and Janne Da Arc at the time lol

I agree >;
I mean if she's gonna go to a concert and review it why spend time criticizing them on a personal level instead of critiquing the music?
Title: Re: (Band) GLAY - (US TOUR 2009 - win tickets!!)
Post by: Kaizer on September 05, 2009, 03:11:20 AM
Oh awesome, quite a long time now too. :D

I first heard about them from a friend who was already into them and he was like "Try listening to them they're really good!". I was like okay but I wasn't that interested at first and then my best friend started getting into them and she let me listen to their songs. I thought it was pretty good so I borrowed Review and Heavy Gauge and then I borrowed my friend's Video Glay 4.

I was like "LOL the guitarist and the bassist look like girls! D8 (I wasn't used to all that stuff yet)". I liked Teru at first and then moved on to Hisashi and from then on he's always been my favourite. xD

I was into Utada Hikaru back then when I was just beginning, and a bit of L'Arc~en~Ciel because of Rurouni Kenshin before I got into jrock and jpop. xD

Yeah exactly. She said she only liked Yuuwaku because of the beat and then she was like "Oh it got boring cause I don't know what the heck they were saying.". It's good if you understand the lyrics but you don't have to understand it to appreciate good music. =/

Edit: Btw, JDA rocks! xD Too bad they still won't get back together after two years...
Title: Re: (Band) GLAY - (US TOUR 2009 - win tickets!!)
Post by: Scarlet on September 06, 2009, 04:47:27 AM
That was sad when they took their "break" >:

lol I don't blame you Hisashi's hot ;D
Takuro's my idol :3
it's probably because he writes amazing lyrics or because he's taller than all of them IDD

she only liked it because it was the only song she heard before or something like that, I try to ignore people like that
because you can't speak logic to them, if she cannot realize how amazing Glay is then she is lost to this world >:

&Agreed, I wish time would speed up >;

Scarlet: It was, and that was at a time when I was only starting to get into them too. D: ABC has been awesome though. xD

I used to be like, super obsessed with him (along with friends who were into them) LOL. We were crazy fangirls. Takuro's my idol too, both him and Hisashi but Teru and Jiro are awesome too.  :D

I know. She fails greatly. =.= She should stick with whatever music she likes now and stop picking on Glay and Japanese music in general. >8[

Daigong: Yeah. They were original pvs so you know how YT shuts down accounts who upload music videos and stuff. My old account got suspended because I uploaded pvs haha. e.e

Glay @ the House of Blues Sept.12
(http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y119/ghost-love/teruhashihob.jpg)



The Line
Got there at 7am!
there was already 20 something people in front, not a big deal, but you just knew how I felt.
(http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y119/ghost-love/Pastheline.jpg)
the pass the line crowd, the girl in red was first in line :3
(http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y119/ghost-love/FriandSat.jpg)
In front of the House of Blues, though this is a picture of the "Tonight" board.

Well waiting in line was very boring, I brought friends this time, but they were mostly reading books. Even more people came, it was nice listening to the stories people were telling about Glay, I met some fans who came from Japan, Tomoko &Miki, and their friend I can't remember his name. But it was like a funny lost in translation because they spoke little English and I little Japanese, so we mostly used body language. They asked us if we came last year, and If I was in any pictures, I told them that I did come last year, and then Tomo rummaged inside her bag and pulled out a small magazine, and handed it to me, I didn't realize what it was until I took it. It was Happy Swing Volume 53& Happy Swing volume 50! And it was about the Verb tour in 08!! I immediately freaked out, I specially freaked out when I opened it and saw a pic picture of the crow. I WAS IN IT!! I freaked out so much at that time, I showed them and they congratulated me and were cheering , then she asked me if Jiro took a picture of our section and I told her that I remembered that, well guess what? She turned to the page it was on and I found myself AGAIN!! I showed them and they confirmed it! Tomo flipped on Happy Swing 53 and pointed to the crowd in the Picture of the Great Vacation free concert in Yokohama,and said that it was her, I freaked out for her and we were just soaking in Glay Fan-girl-ness. He gave me back the magazines after telling us to let another group od fans look at them gave them back to them and Tomo told me that we could take pictures of them all we wanted. Though through Lost in Translation she pointed at me and said "Takuro, Takuro Takuro" and made a motion of cellphone picture taking as she said it and said "it's okay". After taking like a hundred pictures of Takuro, and Erika of Jiro we gave them back. They asked us who our favorite member was, Erika and Diana (friends I brought) said Jiro because in the short time I've introduced them they were just crazy about Jiro. Tomo and Miki were also Jiro fans, I told them Takuro and they freaked out and started showing all these pictures of Takuro and telling me that he lived in L.A. and he also had a house in Japan, and that he moved from L.A. to Japan, back to Japan and back to L.A.! Well I was dying inside and these girls were so happy that their idols could be adored by people so many miles away from their homeland. They had jet-lag though so they went back to their hotel room to sleep, it was 2am for them so I wasn't surprised, their friend stayed but he slept in line, we took care of their stuff while they were gone though. Then they started rehearsing! around 6 something, i went to go to the bathroom and what do I hear? "My Love, Try Love" Oh my God! I pressed my face against a glass door by the bathroom and I could see Hisashi, Oh my God, I told the other fans that were there to go see, and then there was a line to see them. A girl with blond hair was there just listening, she said that if she saw them she would cry, it was so sweet. I remember that was me last year, I was crying in line while they were rehearsing, and during performance at the show, wow. I love how Glay can touch so many people and all over the world.


The Show


(http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y119/ghost-love/HOBGLAY.jpg)
Hours Passed by, and a short misunderstanding about our tickets later, we were in! Well as Soon as my ticket was scanned I RAN IN and I mean "RAN IN" I got from the door to the rail in 3 seconds! I even almost threw down with a girl who wanted my spot, she pushed me and I shoved her back, she was Japanese too, and I can tell you that the rest of the night she tired to push me back. Well that was the girl to my right. The girl to my left was so nice though, we took care of each other all threw out the concert. The girls in front of me were rude though, they kept pushing us back even though we weren't pushing them, so I didn't understand them, I also didn't understand how people can leave their hair down, and expect it not to to pulled! Alright so the concert begins! Lights go on, and Hisashi walks out with his Jedi light-saber toy, oh my god! Fangirls were loosing it, I was loosing it, Hisashi is so cool! Next to come out was Jiro, and yes he had a light-Saber too! (I think, he was holding something!) right after him was Takuro, he was a total rock star, like we know he is posing and doing all the things we love him for, and then Teru, walking to his mic with his arms wide open, I was in love, I always forget it, but Teru is such a great performer because of how he interacts with the audience, even though that Takuro is my idol, my God, Teru always steals my attention.
"The Great Vacation" Begins and we're all going crazy, already there's a girl behind me trying to push me away, not gonna happen, in too in love and into this moment to let her. I'm singing a long and just in love with everything, shaking freaking out about Takuro playing too close to the crow, my entire section was just calling out his name "Takuro" "Takuro!!"
"Yuuwaku/誘惑" was next, and omg it was craziness, " Morning Moon,yuube no namida no wakemo kikazu" I was getting pushed badly this time, I tried to ignore her but it was bad, so I stepped on her foot and she stopped, I can still feel the bruises she gave me by the way. I let it go and just jumped with the crowed I sang out with Teru's voice and hundreds of Glay fans, singing a long "I don't know how to love don't ask me why!" at this point Hisashi's solo came and he stood in the middle of the stage I was near there and I saw him shred that guitar and the beautiful sound of it rang in my ear, I remember then that Hisashi's outfit really reminded me of  the Live a the Expo in 1998, still Punk rock at heart.

I think that "Cynical" was next, the energy of the crowd was picking up and that girl wouldn't quit it, well when that soon was over. Next was "サバイバル/ Survival" and before Teru started talking to us, again, a guy behind me told the girl who was crushing me to stop it, then he said some words to her in Japanese that I will not repeat here, let's just say that bitch got what she deserved, the rest of the night I never felt her try to push me away again, thank you mysterious man!
The next song was "Starless Night" and you know Teru, first he made us sing with him and had a little cheering contest, he spoke to us, and told us about his "Broken English" oh but he was so cute, trying to translate his Japanese into English but a fan didn't know how to translate it. Well we were doing the "Ooooh wow" and he tried to separate the boys from the girls, a girl who was singing on a boys part went red when he pointed at her and said "Just the boys!"

After this I think they played two ballads, "However", and "Be with you", and "Run" "Hashiru Hashiru, Hashiru!!" I can't remember the order though, they either played it before these two or after, that I think it was "Verb" well it was amazing! and everyone was headbanging and jumping "Doushite ano toki te wo hanashita doushite ano chikai wo kowashita " going crazy over Teru pulling Hisashi too close to him, Takuro was hunched over demanding perfection from his guitar, it came in the dramatic sound of the bridge.  He was wearing these pretty boots they were shiny and blood red, Teru's boots had these little feathers on the sides that would jingle as he walked, it was cute and very rock n roll.  Alright so I think that after Verb, they played "Synchronicity" with Teru beginning this beautiful vocalizing that just blew me away. Next was "I am xxx " Everyone went crazy again, and I'm telling you that it's not "omg omg I'm being squished" all the time. It's very tame but at the same time it's amazing because you can jump comfortably and have fun comfortably. So we're all losing it at the chorus and freaking out again " Yes I am, Oh Yes I am we are in love" It was very in the order like the  Fillmore set list. I think there was a change in the beginning though I can't remember it now. " Next song, i knew they were going to play but I still freaked out because it was one of my favorites, "High Communications" Teru made us some weird punching X thing with our arms 'High communications beat emotion escalation" more jumping I smiled to the girl next to me who turned to me and smiled at me back, then the bridge came up in the middle of "I love, try love" the crowd jumped and cheered "hey" it was very cool how fast we got the choreography down!  Next was "More than Love" which I think was the last song before the encore, at the middle of this song Teru decided to rip off his shirt and at the end collapse on the floor, Takuro laughed when he did and did Jiro, awww it was so cute you guys! Then they left the stage. Of course there was going to be an encore because their Glay and we love them and want more. They came out and Teru had a shirt on, fan-girls mourned, it was a tour shirt by the way, I think the whole band had them on. "彼女の"Modern..."/Konojo no 'Modern...'" was the first encore song, well the crow went crazy! I felt even more squished now and somehow ended up separated from my friends and all the way nearer to Teru which meant I was farther from Takuro, though I wasn't sad.I let it go though I was too busy jumping "Kimi no sex, drugs, rock and roll!!" It was time,for Jiro to rock the hell out of us with "SHUTTER SPEEDSのテーマ/Shutter Speeds no theme", of course the fan-girls were going crazy! and we would jump insync to "Hey Man" Next was "Acid Head"which was amazing, even crazier than Konojo, and Teru was spinning so crazily! Then something happened, I freaked out more than usual, why? Maybe because one of my favorite songs was next! "ピ-ク果てしなく ソウル限りなく/Peak Hateshinaku Soul Kagirinaku" in an instant Teru got the crowd to do the windshield wipers and of course we all proceeded to jump once the lyrics started. "It's My Life Tomerarenai! Dokomadedemo Hashiru!"Well the evening ended withI'm In Love" it was really beautiful, Teru would mix in the name of L.A. in there somewhere, and the crowd was just taking in his voice, while Teru strummed his guitar and sang, Takuro took his pick and put it in his mouth and proceeded to play his guitar with his fingers only. I would've taken a picture but my phone died! Well I was in heaven, and all the while clapping my hands to the tempo repeating the anthem we all swore by "I'm Just in Love, I'm just in love, I'm just in love oh Singin' my Life".
I can't remember the order of songs sorry, I have really bad short term . I do remember ,however, Teru just showering me  when he sprayed water into the crowd,  I remember Hisashi throwing his pick way back into the pit, I remember Jiro taking a picture of my section, again! Glay took a picture with us too, I don't think I'll show up this time but maybe my hand will! It was so cute Teru was just like "Do you mind, if we took a picture with you guys?" I remember Takuro talking into the mic, I remember me freaking out about it, I'm only this much of a fan-girl for Takuro! We didn't do the end jump together, but my section only a few did the girl next to me and I held hands and jumped when they did. The concert was over, I was parched I made my way to the bar and asked for water, after the concert my friends who never even knew who they were or have liked Japanese music at all were all of a sudden in love with them! We swore to follow their next U.S. tour entirely. This is the reason that I am so in love with Glay, the way that they can bring people together and the message that they give, and the way they treat their fans. You can tell that when Teru saw a sign that read "We Love Glay" he said "Oh that's so sweet, I love you too," you can hear it in his vioce that he meant it. Or even how excited Jiro was it was written all over his face that they honestly cared for us. Many bands just see their audience as money, but not Glay, and like Glay a lot of other bands don't.The Great Vacation Tour ended, with promises to return to the states again!

recently their case for Copyrights of their songs was settled.
It was in the news since 04 I think, that their company sued them or something.

Yay~ now Glay officially owns all of their songs <3

@Dai: I think that it was because they switched companies, and back in 04 their previous company basically said that they owned their music since I guess that was something that they didn't tell them, so they sued them.
That is what I heard :3

I've been so busy lately, hardly any time to go on forums sorry~!!

in any case I bring good news.

Takuro announced in his Myspace blog a few weeks ago that they are working on a new album this year.
there has been no new album since Love is Beautiful back in early 07. Only compilations and singles.

there will hopefully be an American addition to their album tour since they did promise to return, so it maybe be next year.  It all depends on when the album is finished and how many arena tours they plan to have. And of course cost, if they can risk coming this year or if it's better to make anticipation for next year.

That's the glay two cents from me <3

So I just heard their new single, Precious (releasing Sep 8). Its a bit slow and the PV looked kinda cheap. Still need a few more listens to decide whether I dig it or not.
And their new album...titled..."GLAY" will be released on 13th October. Woot!
