      SOROBORU 5

      Uroboros is a fantastic album. Just about everything was perfect to me: the artwork, packaging, music, and content. The 2CD, DVD, 2 LP version was quite the price, but it came with all of the above. To start off, the package is HUGE! It's the width and length of an LP. The slipcase is a nice leather type box with the album title written in silver glimmering letters. Inside there is a case for the LPs, and a case for the CDs and DVD. The LP case is a double gatefold case, while the CD DVD case is a tri-fold. Instead of a booklet, a hardcover book is included. It contains both english and Japanese lyrics, and incredible artwork. A bonus sticker of the cover is also included with the package. The CD itself is great. Dir en Grey really outdid themselves on this one. The album is a mixture of their old and new self, ranging from hard-hitting, heart-wrenching songs full of despair to songs that are easy on the ears and put one in a trance. The bonus CD contains 4 unplugged tracks from the album. My favorite is Red Soil as it sounds COMPLETELY different than the original. The DVD was the weakest link to me in this package. It shows scenes from the recording of Uroboros and interviews with the band members, and also some live performances of just the band. The footage was actually kind of boring, seeing as I can't speak Japanese very well. The performances were cool to watch though. All in all, Uroboros was fanTAStic. Music was amazing, packaging was of high quality, and it was full of content. 5/5

My favorite is Red Soil; it sounds completely different than the original and VERY interesting. The DVD was the weakest link to me in this package.

      The Past, Present and Future... 5

      The wait was unbearable, but I waited till it was dark outside when I plugged this disc in. It didn't take any longer than the first second to have me in complete trance all the way through till the last second. The only thing I could say was that it was probably their best album yet. After having listened to so many times that I know every single detail in the songs, I can say that it truly is. Why is really not that easy to explain under 2400 letters, but I'll try. SA BIR is the greatest instrumental opening I've heard from any band - period! VINUSHKA is not only a great insight to what the whole album will feel like, it's their most epic song ever! The two delicate singles GLASS SKIN and DOZING GREEN could never have prepared one for the powerful darkness this album holds. INCONVENIENT IDEAL which closes the album is their most emotional song ever. Really, there's no point in talking about every song because they are all perfect! I can't even pick favourites, I just thought I'd say how the album starts, how it is somewhere in the middle and how it closes. The amount of hard work put down in this album is astonishing as DIR EN GREY manage to push themselves in a direction that make them better and better with every album which is something I can't think of any other single band have ever accomplished. The unplugged disc contain 3 tracks once again and they are just as great, if not better than those from the previous album! In particular RED SOIL which also feature completely re-recorded vocals. The DVD is nice with some interviews as well as two songs performed live in the studio. I have yet to listen to the vinyl records, but that will definitely happen one day. UROBOROS is so great that I can't possibly imagine how their next album will ever manage to top it, but I've said the same thing in the past with their previous albums as well and they always prove that they know how. They managed to capture the past, present and future of themselves with their darkest album yet.
