Well you know how it is… they jump the shark (like HEROES after s1 or s2). After a certain song or album, you just now at that moment they sold out and that you’re never going to hear that “artist” ever again. I hate people who say oh you’re only saying that because they went major & main-stream or whatever but honestly… I’m just basing it on the sound or the soullessness of it.
I’ll post links to a song in case you never heard their “real” music and only heard their crap music they released after increase in popularity or whatever. I wish they would go back to where they are or leave whatever they are right now but honestly… I just think they’re dead. The fame & the money just suffocated the music. We get the most boring, crappy lyrics, and gay songs. It’s just gotten to the point that after some relesae that I downloaded that I deleted shortly after I decided to never download this artist again. Thta’s what DEAD means to me as far as artists go. If someday they release something with a song title that’s decent I may give them a chance but honestly I really don’t see it.
sidetalk: When I first found out about them with the sakura thing with the indie I was pleasantly surprised. Then I try to delve into Japanese Indie which there isn’t much of ? So on one of their first 2 albums they had amzing songs and maybe 1 dud or 2 (basically indie GOLD). Like, here’s AMAZINGNESS from the 1st or 2nd album that I think they’ll never return… probably at this rate with these retarded song titles. I think it started with BLUE BIRD. IF SO, ever since they did that song to NARUTO they’ve been turning to shit. These songs are so boring and soulless compared to their first 2 albums. the sad part is their 3rd album sold more than the 1st 2 albums combined even (or close to it from the wiki). their 3rd album is so BAD. There’s like only 1 good song which isTHIS (kuchizuuke). and I’m annoyed that the top plays on imeem are the shitty anime songs of theirs when their 1st 2 alubms are so AMAZING> SERIOUSLY download/buy ’em. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED>They made me start saying I like J-indie… well that style.
AND I HOPE TO DEAR GOD that school food punishment doesn’t turn to shit too after they did the ending of the song to that SHITTY ANIME (yes IT IS SHITTY. johnns lol wut. & it’s just so boring after the first ep… hell the first ep is pretty boring too & the characters are just flat). The song they did for that anime is good I think but the single that released for that had this other song that I didn’t care for & it also had this annoying remix of a song they did before.
I looked up and found that Ikimono gakari did do songs for other animes. But i think it’s more like they gave a song on their album as opposed to writing it so it’ll be used on the opening. I don’t know.
PLEASE DON’T COMMENT ABOUT SOME JPOP ARTISTS SAYING THEY SHOULD BE INCLUDED because in my opinion they sucked from the start (I don’t like jpop so the chances are HIGH). To die, they have to be alive first.
OMG I listened to the song higaneshi (linked above) by ikimono gakari & I understand the lyrics well/hear it really well. in fact i was puzzleｄ by the lyrics at that time ｌike 大体三日間でひと月の疲れを癒してる… I don’t know, it just looked confusing at the time but now it’s like why was i confused? (actually I decided to add a couple lines of the lyrics to the SRS & trust me I CANNOT do that with their “3rd album songs” those lyrics are just downgrade ) It also seemed to be a lot faster to me then, now it’s like… i wish this song was was faster. It’s been god knows hwo long since I heard this song … a year or so or maybe less. I love it when I can feel my progress in my japanese studies… AND I never looked up what the band name means and then eventually I connected tabemono and ikimono and ~~gakari/kakarichou etc. hell it’s not really studying anymore… mostly FUN so. AJATT FTW
OH WAIT there’s another one…
Gawd she’s terrible now-a-days. All the singles she’s been releasing has been really terrible. I can just judge from the song title. they’re so boring and cliche and juts ugggggggh. I mean technically she wasn’t “alive” at first since her first album was rather bad. I don’t remember there was one good song on it. but the whole album was just boring with the melody, with the lyrics, and especially the english. the english/engrish wasn’t boring but it was really FORCED. That’s why I especially can tell that her new songs suck even before hearing them with the title which is in english… which don’t even sound that cool. Her second album is better and it’s just with her style of music you have to evolve…. otherwise it gets really BORING and as far as i can tell she is fallllllling to crapp music. it’s always the goddman anime that makes artists turn to crap? lol. well she did some song for bleach and then i think the 2nd time she did it, you knew she was just gone. she’s DEAD>
