Asian Kung-Fu Generation - Fanclub

Asian Kung Fu Generation - Fanclub

Asian Kung-Fu Generation's third major label full-length album "Fanclub" came out March 15. Now's the perfect time to get into the band that's redefining Japan's rock sound with its blend of pop and edge.

"Fanclub" picks up with the song "Angou no Waltz" which finds the band mixing conventional emotional rock with experimental time signature changes. Continuing towards the middle of the album, the band goes for a relaxed rock with the inclusion of singles "Blackout" and "Blue Train" before closing off the album with more emotional fare like the superbly composed "Gekkou."

Asian Kung-Fu Generation are said to make music as beautiful as their album art, and "Fanclub" is most certainly no exception.
