Marsela's condition is better. I've met her on the latest gath Very Happy

Anyway I haven't listen the new songs yet. I've been curious with Ikimonogakari's newest album since NEWTRAL hoho

My favorite songs are "My Sunshine Story", "Haru Uta" and "MONSTAR". Especially "My Sunshine Story" has a classic touch from their old days.
"Papapa~ya" sounds funny as expected.

Hi guys ! Long time no see ! Sorry !^^"

I absolutely love the new album. It kind of reminds me of Iki's first album 'sakura saku michi monogatari'. Even the ballads. For me it is their best release since the past few years !
They have been also very active with the promotions ! You guys should chek those links to see all their promotions !

I always wanted her to see her hair tied, so that her cute and round face shows up more.

On to the album, in my honest opinion, their music recently became more "POP-ish", maybe because their target market changed as well. Their control over their song choice and compositions got limited because of the management. I guess that's what probably most happens when you step in to the mainstream.

Please somebody tell me that "you" are as otaku as I am and dowloaded the interviews from this channel??
No?? I hate Sony Music Japan   if they were claming copyrights over the new songs that's fine but they didn't have to block the whole channel.  I only downloaded one part of one of the interviews.  

It's stuff like this that really pisses me off.  

And about the "new direction" (it's not really new it's been like that since Hajimari no Uta), I can't only imagine how much pressure the 3 of them face, think about it they are not quite a rock band, they are quite not a pop band, they don't dance (except for some attemps that I guess management tried to impose), they have to appeal to both teenagers and young people as well as their parents.  And to be succesful in Japan being this type of band I guess it's complicated as hell.  I just hope they don't change the live sets in tours to come and they continue to play their best songs (not that I don't like some of the new songs, but IMO the new records can't compete with the first 3).  It's all Seiji Kameda's fault.   (kidding...sort of).

Yep, not that they don't deliver good songs consistently but I'm inclined to agree.

Iki takes first place. Smile

TokyoHive wrote:Popular unit Ikimonogakari's 6th album, "I" (released July 24th), sold 112,000 copies in its first week and has grabbed the number 1 spot on Oricon's album chart for the week of August 5th.

Since releasing their album "My Song Your Song" (released December 2008), Ikimonogakari has topped the album chart 6 consecutive times. The last gender mixed group who achieved this feat was DREAMS COME TRUE ("MILLION KISSES" in November 1990 ~ "LOVE UNLIMITED∞" in April 1996) 17 years and 4 months ago.

I really enjoyed Egao. I have to listen more songs from Ikimono Gakari, I stopped in Waraitetanda, and skipped straight to newtral that I didn't liked so much.
I don't know why I didn't liked so much their new stuff, but when I her the oldest stuff I kinda like so much.
I liked Hajimari no Uta, but not so much as well, but a bit more than NEWTRAL, so I gonna wait for this album to release, and listen to it carefully.

I would like to know what is the best songs from NEWTRAL (your opinions), so I'll take note and listen later.

I don't know if someone reminds me, but I'm still Smile

I like almost all of songs in newtral
But let me recommend you, Chikyuu is a great song.
It was a song they made when they were still in high school.

And Renshi, NEW WORLD MUSIC, Warattetainda is my favorites too.
I love these kinds of music from Ikimono Gakari.

I don't listen to Ikimono Gakari's musics for a long time so I'm excited to listen again.
It's normal that a band changes with time, mostly if it's a artist from Sony -.- why do you think yui stoped being YUI?
Well, I can't say much more because I didn't listen to the album yet

Hey there Gabriel! Welcome back! Smile
Putting the singles aside, I agree with Chikyuu but would also go for Shiroi Diary, Renshi and Ai Kotoba. They are different tunes with different moods so maybe some will struck a chord with you, maybe some won't.

Lately I got hooked with the song "Tokyo" 3rd best song after Kaze ga Fuite iru and Haru Uta in this album in my opinion. The song is about the story of Johnny. Hahaha joke.

Btw, I also think that Renai Shousetsu and Nukumuri are good songs too.

Post by japoelflaco on Sun Oct 13, 2013 3:56 am

My favorites from the whole album...
1. Papapa ya
2. Ashita No Sora
3. Haru Uta
4. Renai Shousetsu
5. 1 2 3 Koi Ga Hajimaru

The first one is such a fun song, I love how "orchestral" this song is also the many voice changes Kiyoe displays for the song.

Ashita no Sora, I think it's the best Iki song in a long time, it's so good and nostalgic, has a "country" vibe that fits so good with the lyrics and the harmonica solo in this song rules, Hotaka at his best.

Haru Uta it's a song that for some reason I had forgoten about in between records and Im glad that it's included in this album the pace and ryhtm it's so fast but controlled, really good song.

Renai Shousetsu it's a song that like that title says feels like a theme of a Romantic Novel, but only the voice of Kiyoe can make a romantic novel so good.

And 1 2 3 Koi Ga Hajimaru it's a song that puts me in a good mood with all the teenage love theme (yes I have a crush at work).

Personally, I think this is the best album since My Song Your Song, glad that Ikimonogakari still has the ability to blown my mind with their songs. BTW, I cannot wait to hear these songs live, it's going to be the best.

Ahh yes, but I don't know if everyone in this forum has bought the album, I did. But 5 months ago I didn't had a job so that would've been impossible to me.

Don't worry Im sure you'll get to hear "I" really soon.
