      These guys need their own shelf!!! 5

      This is an EXTREMELY powerful album!!! The album (band) are THE ones responsible for getting me into Jrock!! Full of ultra-heavy guitar riffs, rich and provocative vocals, the GazettE could even learn from these guys!! However, I'm only giving this 4 stars... (More like 4.5) Yes, I absolutely adore the heavy, hard rock, almost metal taste, with an old school 80’s rock twist, however some things disappointed me in regards to the overall album... Some songs just didn’t deliver. They just didn’t fulfill their “duty” in the album. Via Dolorosa, for example, has some deliciously wicked guitar work, however, the tempo and melody slows down too much, into sort of a weak ballad. I got the impression that it was going to stay a heavy rock tune, but maybe that's just what I was hoping for..But, I have to agree though, and think that it's still good. Lost Reason, was sooo freaking awesome, but I got so disappointed by this remix. Hearing Micro rap on it, detracted from a.b.s' work, which was absolutely superb. But just listening to this song again after not hearing it in a long time, made me even grow back in love with these guys! Even WITH the annoying rapping!! An impressive song, anyone who appreciates good hard rock, will LOVE this song, (yet prefer the original.) So somehow, this song is still an overwhelming success! The only other thing that really disappointed me, was some awesome songs that were on the singles, (Fre@k Show, Nervous Breakdown) weren't on here. That was the number 1 disappointment. My favorites are, “Howling” (same as the single version), “Innocent Sorrow”, and “Nephilim” are AWESOME, as are Down to you", "As one" and.. *cringe* “Lost Reason”. Overall, I was disappointed.. a little. There are some songs that don’t deliver, but the ones that do, are really a knock-out!!! Sunao and Shibasaki are guitar GODS!! Nishikawa’s voice, is remarkable, probably THE best Japanese vocalist! His Japanese is delightful, but his English is breathtaking! First of all, you can’t tell English isn’t his native language. But two, his English voice is.. rich, powerful, and has an absolutely charming uniqueness to it. Harsh and potent, yet smooth deliciousness!!! These guys are amazing, plain and simple. Thinking about it now, just disregard the negatives and buy it!! It's so freaking impressive!(Changes stars to 5) Absolutely awesome, anyone will fall in love with rock with this! I can’t wait for a new album!!!!

      Awesome Album 5

      One of the best albums I've ever heard. Apart from the songs included in the singles, the tracks Via Dolorosa, Dress and ReBirth + ReVerse are just incredible. A must-buy for any fan, and if not, buying this will convert you.

      a.b.s. debut album 5

      I'll be the first to admit that I've gone "ga-ga" over a.b.s.! Everything they release is a must have for me! I've had this CD for months now, and I still listen to it regularly. Friend of mine also got me the Blu-Ray for their album tour, and it's almost as good as what they did in the studio. I just wish I had been able to get a copy of the Limited Edition of this Album. I hope they are able to realease another album soon because they are fantastic! If anyone reading this hasn't heard them yet, you need to buy this CD pronto! : )

      Great! 5

      The first song that I heard by ABS was Via Dolorosa. When I listened to this album, I thought "finally I found my favourite band!". I love all songs from this album and can't stop listening them over and over!

      I got so excited when I first caught the PV for Innocent Sorrow online at Youtube. After waiting so long to hear all of the songs I wasn't disapointed at all. It's a stellar debut album that features a wide variety of styles. It's not surprising, considering TM Revolution is well known for his amazing music, but I feel like he has taken it to a new level with ABS. You get to see a whole new side to him that I wasn't expecting. Best songs hands down would have to be Innocent Sorrow, Howling, Nephilim, and Lost Reason. I hope ABS releases more stuff like this in the future that I can get my hands on. I the meantime YOU should get your hands on THIS!
