Description in Japanese

LOTUS [DVD付初回限定盤] / Dir en grey

2011年、遂に放たれたDir en grey次なる動き!! "蓮"を意味するLOTUSは、タイトル通りにメロディアスな旋律を奏でる京の歌声としなやかなリズムとは対照的に、未踏領域の低音までギターとベースのチューニングを下げることで生まれたへヴィな音が絡みあった楽曲。4thアルバム『VULGAR』から生まれ変わり、既に秋ツアーで披露された「OBSCURE」に加え、夏ツアー最終公演の新木場スタジオコースト(7/20公演)よりライヴ音源では初となる「冷血なりせば」が収録された今作も、海外エンジニアにより日本国内では他に類を見ない迫力ある作品に仕上がった。 初回生産限定盤は、7/21に行われた新木場スタジオコースト公演より3曲 (「残」「LIE BURIED WITH A VENGEANCE」「逆上堪能ケロイドミルク」)のライヴ映像を収録したDVD付。

      flower power 5

      LOTUS was a nice contrast from HAGESHISA... The packaging is exactly the same format as HAGESHISA'S (minus OBI). The slipcase is glossy, however, which fits with the water on the cover. It also comes with a sticker. Lotus was great, but not my favorite. For one, I thought the balance between Kyo's real vocals and additional vocals was annoying. They were the same volume so that Kyo would be screaming in your ear, even though he doesn't even scream in the song. OBSCURE is interesting. It definitely fits more into their recent sound and has a different tone to it. I do, however, enjoy the original for it's dark quality. The live version of REIKETSU NARISEBA is cool and all, but you can find a live version on their DVD, youtube, etc. It is, however, still an energetic live performance and fun to listen to. The DVD is my favorite part of the single. It contains 3 live performances! one being a song from their FILTH single! The performances were pretty good quality and a treat to watch. Overall, the packaging was awesome, the music was decent, and the DVD was great! Even if the CD for me was just okay, the DVD makes up for it! The lotus is a persuasive plant

      Excellent 5

      When I first ordered this I was thinking it would be all the same style as their "激しさと、この胸の中で絡み付いた灼熱の闇" single from 2 years back. While it wasn't the style I was expecting completely I still highly enjoyed the album. I especially loved the remake of Obscure, only I can't decided which I like more the original or the new one (lol). Now as for the DVD loved Zan and LIE BURIED, but wasn't a big fan of Gyakujo though I can't say I ever cared much for the song in the first place. Still seeing it live was still neat. All in all though it's just what I'd expect from Dir En Grey. Overall 10/10 and can't wait for their next album.

      Fantastic single and fantastic service! 5

      This single is one of their best ones and I cannot wait until their new CD comes out. The CD/DVD edition is amazingly packaged and the poster was a great bonus! This is a huge must for any Dir en grey fan! Shipping was incredibly fast and I am extremely pleased! I will be ordering from CDJapan again! Thank you!

      Great Single 4

      I've rated the Limited Edition higher because of the extra content and great packaging. The packaging was the same as the Hageshi.....single (minus OBI). It had a slipcase and then a mini vinyl-like case that housed the CD and DVD. This version also came with a sticker :D The CD is the same (of course) but the DVD was a real treat for me. Quality-wise it was great, looks just like one of their DVD concerts. It was great to see them play a song from Kisou, and a pretty solid performance at that. Zan and Lie buried with a vengeance were also great performances. Overall, 8/10. Great CD, Sweet DVD, and awesome packaging. Can't wait for their new album!

      This single was OK 3

      This single was O.K. for the most part. Lotus was good lyric wise and Kyo did a good job with his vocals on this. The music itself and guitar work was good. Now to my negative about this single. It may be because I love Shokubeni so much or because I was expecting something of that feel and magnitude be similar but I just didn't like the remake. In my honest opinion I believe the original Obscure was better, in feel and sound. As for the third song I didn't like. I felt it to be somewhat lacking. This is why I gave this single the score I did. I'm a long time dir en grey fan and own almost all their dvds and cds, and while I may not like every song they put out there are always songs that I just can't stop rocking to, (Shokubeni, Vinushka, Obscure, Kodou, Red, umbrella, withering to death, saku, etc) but this single is average, Lotus was good but they destroyed Obscure which was already just perfect and an unmemorable third song which I don't think anyone cares about. Long story short if you like Dir en grey Lotus won't disappoint. If you liked the original obscure then you probably wont like it. The third song suck.
