Different Sense is GREAT. The music, artwork, packaging, and content was VERY satisfying. The packaging is that of the past 2 singles with the slipcase and double gatefold mini-LP style cardboard case + sticker. I thought the CD was fanTAStic. Different Sense reminds me of Kodou in that there are many different elements in just one song. There's moments of hard rockin out, melancholy ease, emotional sadness, etc. Kyo's vocals range drastically through out the song. One moment he'll be screeching like dying cat, then growling like I don't know what, to singing a beautiful and powerful melody. Even with a lot of things going on the song is cohesive and sounds great. Tsumi to Kisei seems to be quite disliked. I rather enjoyed it very much. It was MUCH different than the original, but elements were definitely noticeable. It was very slow and dense. The atmosphere it generated was quite thick and weighed down. I give this songs props just for being able to generate an atmosphere. While not my favorite song, it is unique and interesting to listen to (though not on repeat because it's SOOOOO slow and dense). Red Soil is (honestly) nothing special. Seen them play it live? Then you already know what it sounds like. The DVD was honestly boring to me. It's another making of footage. There IS like 10 or so seconds of footage of the recording of Dum Spiro Spero so that was kinda cool. Overall I would rate this item 5/5. This single gets me REAAALLY excited for the album!

This single is incredible; everything down to the artwork and packaging. I really enjoy that the packaging is consistent with the past 2 releases because it's super nice(although variety doesn't hurt). Aaaand this one also comes with a sticker. Being a fan of 7 years now, it's great to see that Dir en Grey is STILL able to put elements of surprise into their music. For one, Kyo produces deafening shrieks one moment, chaotic growls the next, and then beautifully sings the chorus. The guitars are heavy yet refined and clean and even in some parts comforting. This song is many elements put into one and on the first listen one can't predict how the song will go. But Different Sense has become one of my favorite songs mostly because it includes a guitar solo! Dir en Grey haven't really put a decently lengthed guitar solo for a while now and it's great to hear one. Tsumi to Kisei is another unexpected piece. Very different from the original, it's much heavier, slower, and atmospheric. It's an interesting listen (espeically the end, for me) because I feel like it puts a lot of focus on the atmosphere of the song. The structure is all there though. And yet another live song. This is cool for people who have never seen them live or dont own any of their concerts, but for people who fit either category, it's a bit trite. The DVD content is great. Personally, I'm not a big fan of recording-of footage, but it's just that. There IS a 15 sec. or so clip at the end that shows recording-of footage of 'DUM SPIRO SPERO.' overall, very pleased with the single and even more excited for the album now. Dir en Grey are truly musicians of the highest calibur!
This single is so full of power... just fantastic. Heavy screaming, but still melodic in some parts. Great! Every big fan of Dir en grey will love the Limited Edition, because the bonus DVD includes a "behind the szenes" from recording this strong single! You can watch them recording and talking. This bonus is about 10 minutes.
I enjoyed DIFFERENT SENSE.
This song is pure awesomeness, everything is perfect, i can say is their best single to date. Tsumi to Kisei is a very atmospheric song, really nice. And for Red Soil, is the best live of this song. The DVD is also nice, but having the PV would be bether :/
