This was a truly fantastic album from start to finish. It's the first Alice Nine album I've ever owned or listened to and I have to say that I'm seriously impressed! Songs like Blue Planet, Cosmic World, White Prayer, and Eraser are just amazing. The packaging is also kinda cool. My only dissapointment is that Tsubasa isn't on here...To bad, it's one of their strongest songs. But don't let that discourage you! If your a fan of J-rock then don't be afraid to pick this one up.

Well I have got to say that this is possibly alice nines best album by far. It has an excellent mixture of songs such as "Number Six", "Cosmic World" and "9th Revolover"; all of different styles yet all so flawless. Each song is unique in its entirety and I found myself practically falling in love with their beautiful ballad: "Kousai". On the other had, I really did not enjoy "-Dice-" very much. While the opening is killer and the chorus beautifull sung, the song kind of falls apart during its odd verses. However, this album is definitely a step up from Zekkeishoku and has really shown what great things alice nine. is capable of. I completely and whole-heartedly recommend this album to any fan of Japanese Rock music. You will not be disappointed with your purchase.
This is actually a really good album - in my opinion it's better than "Zekkeishoku". The band tries a lot of new things and the result is a bit schizophrenic but it grows on you after a few listens. There's some really heavy metal-inspired tracks and also a distinct Britpop influence - "Kousai" sounds like Oasis and "Eraser" sounds like James (but in a good way). And of course the singles are great, especially "Jewels" which is my absolute favourite song of last year, and I listened to like 1000 albums (no, really).
My first Alice Nine album. What to say about it? It reminds me of D'espairsray, only not as much industrial or metal as the aforementioned band. Zero is a great way to open. Cosmic World is a more poppy song... actually the real mean shredding doesn't begin again until -Dice-. ^^ Number Six isn't bad either (ironic that it's actually track 7 ;P) It's a nice album with rock songs, pop songs, metal songs, and a few ballads, all crammed into 12 tracks. Quite amazing, that.
This is a really wicked album by alice nine. It quite under expected that this is quite a heavy album. The pop comes quite in the form of the last song, Number Six and Blue Planet unlike the others which are heavier .
