L'arc-en-ciel is one the best J-rock bands around and they prove it with every album they bring out! Even if this one is a bit old, I'm addicted to "Killing me"!

I feel great this record, has strong songs, has songs that make you meditate and other songs that invite the love and passion
This is a strong hyde album as he composes most pieces and his most beautiful ballad Hoshizora.(Starry Sky). This is my favorite L'Arc album along with HEART. I enjoy all tracks and you can play this whole album without skipping no tracks as they all add to the theme of this artistic album. I have the U.S. Version but I will soon buy the Japanese version because it's such a great album I want two! A Dark and Anti War-ish album at times. I feel like this is their most interesting and beautiful work.
I bought this album 3 years after the release date, it's for me one of best L'Arc~en~Ciel album, you can't miss it!
Awake is a mix of good (New World, Killing Me) and... not so good (As One, Ophelia). It's an album where hyde as the primary composer is quite apparent, especially in tracks like Ophelia and My Dear, which sound like they're ripped straight from one of hyde's solo albums. Laruku fans will want to pick it up, but new fans would probably be better off starting with one of the older albums and working their way up.
