I don’t think it is the very first one I heard, but it is the first that I associated with the genre J-Rock and the song that got me into it: 1/3の純情な感情 by SIAM SHADE.
(and no, I will not post the song, video, pictures or any links, because frankly, I am a bit sick of that being the only thing I see associated with SIAM SHADE recently, and certainly am sick of all the covers. At least FLOW had Daita as a guest guitarist (and he helped with their arrangement) but seriously… Though I will be screaming as loud as everyone else when SIAM SHADE plays it on the 21st in Saitama.)
(Sorry it has been so long, but I think I am back…)
Day 10: How You Got Into J-Rock
Yup. You guessed it. SIAM SHADE.
I think I mentioned it earlier, but I had a friend who made me a CD of the Kenshin themes. And a certain theme caught my attention. Once I started seeking out all the SIAM SHADE music, I then naturally started seeking out other J-Rock music… and became hooked.
Back to SIAM SHADE again. XD And this version especially. This song was written as a thank you to the fans, and this concert was their official farewell concert. (They did two more concerts after, but those were technically after they had officially disbanded - encore concerts, if you will) This song was the final encore of the Live. I cry with Hideki every time I watch this, and I cry listening to the song.
Now I know I am entering dangerous territory here…
But I would have to say that the Most Overrated Band is L’Arc-en-Ciel. Most of their music just sounds like a cacaphony of sounds to me. It almost sounds like they are playing four different songs at the same time.
I honestly don’t understand how they are so popular.
And don’t get me wrong. I think they are talented individuals seperately, but together… not so much.
But as I said in the previous day: Everyone is entitled to their own opinion.
