Produced by the very same people responsible for that song (Haruka Kanata), you'll find yourself sitting at the edge of your seat wondering what serving this new-age, anime-ish J-Rock band knwn as Asian Kung-Fu Generation has in store for you! The trend of recent anime opening themes seems to have shifted to J-Rock. While many of us may not initially find such songs appealing, they somehow eventually grow on us. What is different about Asian Kung-Fu Generation is their knack to compose songs that are distinctly Asian - even with a full reportoire of drums and bass. Another unique feature of their music is how they favour inserting long, refreshing interludes to their otherwise heavy metal based music. While interludes are nothing special, Asian Kung-Fu Generation's interludes gives off a low, melancholy feel, even with all their guitars and drums going on in the background. This particular album also features a healthy number of slow tracks that bear a closer resemblance to ballads more than rock music. There's definitely a tune for everybody in here.
I bought this album after buying Solfa. I slowly grew to enjoy every track on Solfa, and I believe the same is happening with this album. Mugen Glider, FlashBack and Mira no Kakera and N.G.S are my favorite tracks on the cd. I'm sure as I continue to listen I'll fall in love with other tracks as well. For any fan of rock I definitely recommend this cd and AKFG, they are a treat to listen to.
While "Sol-fa" and the recent album "Funclub" have taken AFKG to new heights, their first full-length album still has me coming back for more. No other AFKG record starts with such gusto as "Kimi Tsunagi Five M" does with "Flashback". The wailing guitar and energetic vocals transcend so-called "J-Rock". The entire album is full of great riffs from "N.G.S" to the very melodic "Kimi To Iu Hana". This is no longer "J-Rock" but "Rock". "Rock" that shames recent releases from AFKG's American counterparts. "Five M" is AFKG after the calm, here they are raw with emotion and spirit. Despite the tremendous success of "Sol-fa" and "Funclub", this album is the finest work AFKG has released thus far.
