D'espairs Ray's first single since the release of Coll:Set is a very pleasing one, with three very different tracks, ranging from the poppy title track to the dark, heavy, and distorted "PIG" that sounds like something they would have recorded during the Garnet period. D'espa have evolved into a major act, but they still manage to stay true to their gothic roots. Keep up the great work, guys.

Really great!! All 3 songs are awesome I personally like Maze. Must buy for any D'espairs Ray fan, or just for anyone
I bought this cd a while ago and it was my first D'espairsRay cd. I have become so obsessed with them since this cd it's not even funny! I think I spent over $1,000 with all different kinds of D'espairsRay things! But that's a good thing! I love this band so much and I'll travel anywhere to see them!
1.)Kogoeru Yoru ni Saita Hana Its a very different sound than what D'espairsRay usually does. Its lighter, almost to a point of "pop", but uplifting all at the same time (sounds 'heavenly', w/use of chimes & echos, etc.). I can't really give a decision whether I like it or not. (It's prob. bc I have a bias & I like their usual dark, heavy songs.) Hizumi's vocals are just amazing. The melody kind of grows on me, especially the chorus. 2.)MAZE This song has the fast paced, heavier sound that D'espairsRay is well-known for. I like the intro to this song. Tsukasa's drumming is insane. Overall, the melody is kind of boring for me, though. Don't get me wrong, I think the band shows their talents well through this song, but I just don't find it too memorable, even though it sounds like it came off of Coll:set. However, I do like the bridge. 3.)PIG Ok I laughed @ the title of the song. But the intro is just incredible. The instrumentals, the transition into growls,& effect b/w the synthed voice & normal sound is fitting for the atmosphere they're trying to create. I like the overlapping of the screaming & singing, but the angsty whispering voice works in too. HOTNESS.
This single is wonderful. Its a nice breathe of fresh air from the interestingly new style the tryed on Coll:Set and these tracks are really what kind of music the band is really all about. Deffinatly someting you should buy!
