Opinions go~ D:

I have the same feelings as last year when I first listened to Dear Deadman, i.e mixed. Their recent stuff sounds too clean for me, and it's especially hard to compare Linear to the previous releases as it's a pretty experimentative album with the extra keyboards, electronica and semi-rap.

With that said, I guess it'll eventually grow on me like Dear Deadman did. BIRTHDAY is my favorite track so far.

I'm not sure what I think of it yet either. Most of the songs were too, soft, I guess. The additional electronic elements and that slow experimental sound take away the raw sound I actually prefer from them, but it's interesting. I wonder where they're heading with this.
Not to say I hate the sound, lol. Very un-Straightener to say the least. Just different from their usual stuff. It'll take me some time to get used to it, even though they've been kind of easing you into the general sound of the album with past singles.
AFTER THE CALM might be my favorite. A toss up between that and BIRTHDAY.

奇跡の街 -cover version- from Lightning is my most favourite song from them.

I wonder if you already know that the new work comes STRAIGHTENER, which recalls the old style they had.


I forgot, there are only 9 L.E.
