[c86] ALBATROSICKS – DEKKAINO

Alright so if I even began to TRY and explain how excited I was about this album, I doubt I could explain how thrilling this was.  Regardless of how I have felt about IOSYS in the past and how I feel about them now, ALBATROSICKS has always had a special spot in my heart.  After all, their first album came out seven years ago. Months after this blog was started even!

Still, the last album had been Rebirth Era (which was my favourite of their entire discography) but came out at the very end of 2011. There was a Best Of album and then nothing. It seemed like all hope was lost and that the group was done for.

Obviously that isn’t the case now and I couldn’t be happier! (Now if only I could get my hands on Rebirth Era too…)

Yuuhei Satellite – 濡れた髪に触れられた時
(http://www.yuuhei-satellite.jp)

Yuuhei Satellite is my favourite Touhou arrange group, as I’m sure I’ve said before. Not surprising perhaps since the main members that make up the group all are regular Exit Trance SATB contributers? (Or maybe that’s why I can tolerate SATB so much?) Anyways, sounds like a lot of variety. I really like the Princess Inada track because it’s pretty unusual from what they usually do.

Lost Garden – Luxurious Cattail
(http://lost-garden.info)

Lost Garden again. This time with a Little Busters arrange album. Really starting to like them. Liking them enough to wait for a Little Busters arrange album anyways.

 Toho Warfare:BLACK ONYX and RED BERYL
(http://tenjemi.younoumi.com/)

Another IOSYS split release but one with gorgeous covers (though the REDALiCE ones had nice covers too). I wasn’t really interested because it seemed like they would be metal and not really of any importance to me but then I heard the crossfades (available on the site) and now this is one the releases I’m most anticipating.

Melodic Taste – Anime Song Orchestra III
(http://taste-f.sakura.ne.jp/Melodic/CD007.html)

Melodic Taste’s 3rd orchestral offering, obviously. When I saw the (adorable) cover, I assumed the Jinrui song would be Real World because that is the easy choice? I was pleasantly surprised to find out it was the ED which I absolutely love. Have never been big on the vocals included in this series (luckily there are the two seperate versions) but the arranges themselves have never been that disappointing so I’ll be waiting for this one.

Loli Salad’s Bi-Monthly Music Feature: Volume #01

I listen to a lot of music. All different kinds. I like to talk about it here, obviously. Sometimes though there are some albums that I love that I can’t really talk about in the way traditional to this site. So, I’ve returned with a new way of doing this. At the end of every second month, I’m going to just talk a little bit about a few random albums. They may be new or they might be old or they may not even be doujin related at all.

[C82] Sound Holic – Song of Eyelids, Light and Love

Since they started releasing PVs to a select few of their songs at C78, the jazz/Swing Holic PVs have been something I’ve constantly looked forward to. The art style is adorable and each PV is usually pretty poignantly told. I can honestly say You May Know Dream made me tear up the first few times I watched it. I feel like the latest is still really good and the song they chose is fantastic but the PV just doesn’t tell as good a story as You May Know Dream or Boku no Konote Kimi no Sonote.

C82 Previews

I didn’t do a post like this for C81 but evidentally not much interested me then. The only thing that really came from C81 that I adore is Asohgi’s Kantenboukitan soundtrack and I’ve only just caved and ordered that. I do like doing posts like this though since knowing about an album ahead of time is really handy during the rush of C82 uploads.

I’ll try and update this again next week because I have the feeling a few circles haven’t posted everything even though it’s a week away.

(Also, ALTERNAIT is listed as being there but their site is shut down so I’m confused if they have anything new or not)

ALBATROSICKS – Best Album
(http://albatrosicks.com/)

It’s hard to believe it’s been almost five years since the first album came out. It’s hard to believe they’ve already had eight albums too! Though one was a remix album so if you asked me, I would only count seven. The Best Album is split in to two discs with a combined 24 tracks total from all eight albums.

Lost Garden – Eden’s Pattern

Sound CYCLONE  – Re:Brilliance
(http://cyclone.main.jp/disco/rebrilliance/)

Not a big Persona 4 fan but features a remix D.Watt (Otaku-Elite) and Tainokobone (Azure&Sands) so it isn’t that bad.

Melodic Taste – Melodic Battle
(http://taste-f.sakura.ne.jp/Melodic/CD006.html)

I’ve never really found orchestrated Touhou stuff that interesting but this sounds really good. Especially track five.

Amateras-Records – Re:Imagination -Amateras Records Remixes Vol.1-
(http://amateras-records.com/?p=1018)

Honestly never heard of Amateras-Records before except now they’re name is popping up a lot. Maybe because they’re releasing three albums this comiket? I was actually only interested in one of their other releases, Unlogical Trick. But then I saw Hommarju, of all people, was doing a remix of a track or two on this album. He’s actually worked with A-R before too, it seems. (Crossfade on site)

Allium Project x Compllege –  Human Beings Were Led to this Light

I’m not  interested in either series specifically but I like the idea and everything involved with this. A taishi produced Accel World and Sword Art Online image/doujin album that features a lot of my favourite Vocaloid, IA. I think most (if not all) of the vocals are Vocaloids? Taishi did a track for the IA intro album though and it was pretty good so I’m glad he’s taken a liking to her since I do love both of them and both of them together is even greater.

Teddyloid – Electric Alice
(http://mots.jp/)

Teddyloid has teamed up with fanastic artist JH科学 for this short three track (+ a remix) release.
