About two days ago was actually the first year anniversary to Loli Salad. But I forgot had other things to take care of. I suppose the anniversary comes at an inconvenient time but nonetheless, happy belated birthday Loli Salad.
I though tit might be a little strange I didn’t review any Touhou albums. So after downloading this I decided this was better than nothing. I was recommended UI-70 awhile ago but never had the chance (read: lazy) to downloading anything. I While I find that this album and Riddles Covered in Flowers sound like two completely different things, I’m still impressed.
Hmmm… it seems like I’m doing to many music reviews. But it was just C74 and the music releases is just one of the best things! Unfortunatly, the second Umineko Motion Graphic is not the best. It’s not even that good.
I’m not even going to waste my time doing a normal review. This was the one album I was super pumped about (actually, there is another ALTERNAIT released at C74 but I’ll be damned if I can find it). I had to torrent this album and I’ve never torrented anything in my life before (that’s right, I just watch anime on veoh) so I was pretty giddy when it finished. Torrenting has always been this mystical process and those that have done it have all been an awesome clique I always fell short of joining. So I was pretty excited when this album finished, regardless of the terrible format it was in.
But about the actual album? Believe me, me talking about loosing my torrent-virginity is WAAAAY more interesting. I love Niira Etsuko don’t get me wrong. I think she has the most beautiful voice ever. Even the b-side tracks on the first Umineko Motion Graphic were awesome. They themselves would have been better that the motion graphic song this time around.
The main track (which I can’t find the name anywhere, sorry) doesn’t fit with the series at all. It tries to be rockish but it just sounds plain. It doesn’t hold the gripping, haunting feeling that the other songs held. The other songs are just as emotionless and plain. So I won’t even bother talking about them. (Sounding like this, it almost sounds like I haven’t heard the album at all!)
The video itself is the usual Motion Graphic standard. This time focusing on Kanon and Shannon and by association, Jessica and George. But as boring and lousy as the song was (actually, with the video it isn’t so bad I suppose) the video was pretty awesome. You really gotta love how evil Beatrice and Maria looked. Even if it doesn’t have the same feel as the first videos, you gotta appreciate how the art is improving. I don’t much care for the CG but I think it’s an improvement. Near the end there were really lots of great scenes. And did you see Bernkastel? Now that was cool. Hopefully we’ll see Bernkastel, Lambadelta, The Stakes AND… *drumroll* Warugi- *shot by Rosa*.
Disregard everything I said about Aitouka. I love the song, I love the video. Go play Turn of the Golden Witch. Now.
Expect some actual reviews in the coming days of more C74 albums. I’m without games right now due to some video card problems so it’s just music. But with some more ALTERNAIT albums on the way you better believe I’m going to forget about this travesty and focus on some awesome.
Apparently (as in I don’t know hell all) the new Albatrosicks album was released today (or sometime this weekend, maybe not released yet). Irony bites me as I had just wrote the review of their originally titled first album: ‘First Album’. Now I am freaking pumped seriously. This album ‘Planet Liberation’ seems totally different form the sounds of the first album which all sort of blended together and sounded strangely alike. There are two flashes instead of just one and (dr.)ARM’s style is totally visible in the flash and the music. So let’s see if I can find the album now! Piracy away!!
With this I’ve organized the categories a little better. There is a new music category which was the old music section from ‘other’ downloads have been moved under there but that doesn’t mean that the downloads there are limited to music. They usually are so why not move it there? Expect a few awesome additions to LS in the coming days to the first year anniversary of Loli Salad (It’s not for another week or two though).
When I found this I was amazed~! I never thought I’d see Distorted Pain (originally Karen of Yousei Teikoku who is awesome and has done songs for Venus Versus Virus and Innocent Venus, among others) sung by Hatsune Miku. But even if the game isn’t that popular, this song is. I can’t go to… like… five sites while looking for stepfiles without running into it!
