      -Great Overall- 5

      This version of Glass Skin comes in a cardboard sleeve. There is Glass Skin, with vocals from Kyo, mellow guitars from Kaoru and Die, moody bass from Toshiya, and a complex drumwork from Shinya. The B-sides are also noteworthy as it is a break from live tracks, check out Agitated Screams of Maggots -Unplugged- especially. ^.^

      Great 4

      I liked this song better than Dozing Green. The additional tracks are pretty rockin' too!

      Could be their most emotional single 5

      The first thing that struck me with GLASS SKIN was how complex it was. I had to listen to it several times to truly grasp it's depth, but it was never a case of me finding it hard to love the song which I did instantly. It still amazes me of all the hard work you hear from the band when performing this song. With the previous single, they not only re-recorded an old song, but reworked it completely. This time, undecided has only been adapted into a more unplugged kind of sound which suits the song perfectly and makes it far more haunting and beautiful than the original recording. It amuses me how so many people are disturbed by AGITATED SCREAMS OF MAGGOTS -UNPLUGGED- as I couldn't stop laughing the first time I heard it. It's just too awesome to be true! Besides, I consider this more a little nice bonus than something that's meant to be taken too seriously. The limited edition also includes a live recording of RYOUJOKU NO AME in amazing quality! The performance itself is incredible and only makes this already excellent single release even better! GLASS SKIN is incredible, and could very well be their most emotional single ever (and that's saying quite a lot!) With three extra tracks that are all great, this is one awesome release!

      GLASS SKIN 5

      Amazing single from Dir en grey. GLASS SKIN is a very beautiful song, and nothing like they had ever done before. The remake of undecided is fantastic, I like it more than the original version. AGITATED SCREAMS OF MAGGOTS -UNPLUGGED- came out in a totally unexpected way, but I really like it. And the live version of Ryoujoku no ame is also great, especially since it's one of my favorite Dir en grey songs.
