The first single of their 2007 batch release. One of the divisions in my head is releases until Link and after Link and this is the first one released after Link. This single is pretty...different. Seventh Heaven is a quite psychedelic kind of song with lots happening at the same time and it gives me a colorful image. Probably these images are due to the PV which is also pretty psychedelic and colorful. It's a pretty nice song to listen and it's funny to know that they were trying to compose a simple song so that it was easier for the audience to get fired up but even they know this ended up being a pretty complex music but still it's pretty easy to get fired up with it. B track is Honey 2007, P'unk's version of Honey. They did a pretty good job with this too, its mix of fast and slow tempo granted it a nice touch and I think it reinforced the concept of the original version. All in all this is an excellent choice too.

This was the first CD I bought from L'Arc~en~Ciel, and it's one of my favorites so far. SEVENTH HEAVEN is an awesome upbeat song that you never get tired of listening to. And the P'Unk~en~Ciel version of HONEY is great. One of the best releases from L'Arc.
Magnificent L'Arc~en~Ciel has managed to delight their fans once again with this absolutely phenomenal single SEVENTH HEAVEN. The modern, bordering on punkish sound will definitely rouse loyal listeners and new fans alike into truly welcoming the band back to the forefront of the J-rock scene. The catchy melody of this single will have you humming subconsciously for days on end!
This release took me a few listens to really get into it in all honesty, however, I've come to truly fall for this single. The first track seems to follow on the heels of their newer, more upbeat albums, and the second track just kicks butt with the punk/rock sound. (I tend to put this one on repeat actually!) While I'll always be partial to the 'old' feel of L'Arc~en~ciel & their darker rock ballads, their more polished, mature sound still rings true for the band. Maybe best to wait for a full album w/these songs, otherwise fans should snatch this up, at least for the karaoke parts. ^_^
L'Arc~en~ciel's first single in almost two years is definately what fans have been waiting for. The single provides a catchy rythem and powerful lyrics from Hyde. The B-side, Honey 2007, also provides an interesting version of the popular song song by Tetsu. If you're a fan of Laruku, this is a definate buy.
