I’m a major Deco*27 fan. I’m a super major GUMI fan. Ergo, this happened when I saw the crossfade for this album.
Album Name: パラヴレルワールド
Release Date: 7/19/10
A short piano intro piece. Ocean in the back and so very nice~
If you listen to this one right after the intro, it sounds like a continuation sort of. You can hear Deco in the background vocals, if I’m not mistaken. Now, I’m a total fangirl when it comes to either of them, like I said. Please keep that in mind. We basically have a nice pop song on our hands with some cool guitar in the back. The chorus, however, breaks the mold and is pretty heavy sounding.
Ahhhh, I’ve been obsessing over this song for a couple days now! I would have thought it was after Yowamushi Montblanc on this album because aren’t they apparently chronological? Unless we’ve had it mistaken and Mosiac Roll is actually before that one? Or maybe they aren’t related at all and the PV just feautres a lot of shout outs? Okay, that seems unlikely. Anyways, for the song. Well, this is classic Deco*27. Which is good. Immaculate guitar along with Gumi’s almost coarse sounding vocals. The chorus is catchy and when the vocal-less guitar solo near the end starts it always feels so badass.
It’s a little hard to go from something so exciting and ‘resolute’ to something feeling much lighthearted (but knowing Deco the lyrics are probably anything but). You can hear Deco much better in this one too. They really go together nicely. It’s seriously like Gumi was made for him. Which would be okay because, if this album is any indication, he’s got the most masterful control and such a winning expertise with her. I would honestly be happy and not have a complaint if, from this day on, he only released songs with her. (That isn’t to say I don’t like his Miku stuff. Cause I do. A lot).
Ah, Yowamushi Montblanc. I still get chills. Like I said when I posted the PV before, I never imagined, back when Miku came out, that a program could have such heart and feeling to their voice. Well, them along with an insanely talented producer can make anything happen, right? This is one suhc case where you can hear sorrow and heartbreak in not only the song but her voice as well. I honestly also thought, back when Miku came out, she’d mostly be used for anime and j-pop covers. If you had told me back then that the other Vocaloids who would follow could sing songs so well they can make you cry or sing songs so well you get chills, I’d never believe you. But then we have this song and it proves all of that is possible. The chorus sounds so sad that is makes your heart want to burst with lyrics that fall pretty much along that line and a continuous pulsing beat in the back that just don’t let up. Maybe I’m just looking into it a little much because I love the song but still, if it makes you feel that much, it must be doing something right, right?
A slightly slower track. The vocals sound disinterested at first but pick up for the chorus that sounds so nice against the rest of the ‘spoken song’. The song itself reminds me of Mosiac Roll a little, just toned down. I especially like the chorus near the end that started off small and quiet before exploding into a satisfying conclusion.
A short outro piece. That is the continuation of the intro. They’re pretty much the same except this one is sans the ocean sound.
Fang’s Rating: 10/10 (biased 10 is always biased but seriously a great album that Vocaloid fans should really check out)
Recommended tracks: 3, 5, 6
