Shining over you [Dec. 8th, 2003|08:40 pm]
[Current Mood |curiouscurious]
[Current Music | shining over you]

This entry is a bit of an odd ramble for me - but ... I really am liking 666.. but even if I hated every track - Shining over you would make me happy that I bought it.

I find it so nicely textured - and hrmm I think Hyde sings harmony with Hyde even better then he does with Gackt in "Orenji no taiyou" (even though I love that!)

Please let me know...if you are a fan of shining over you... OR
was there some song on some other CD that caught your attn?

You can see a bit of the gamecube cm here: (ahh my url sells me out & shows that I forget to name my pages correctly ^^;;)

I really like Shining Over You! It reminds me of Finale except more like the style of 666... It's interesting. Would you mind summarizing what the lyrics mean? Or is it basically like the chorus?

Shining Over You is one of my favorite songs, but I loved what I'd heard even in the CM before 666 came out... Sweet Vanilla I also like, as well as Hello (I don't really hear a difference between the single and album version?).

Ahaha, let me tell you about the saga of my copy of 666, which I ordered from cdjapan.co.jp. I had them mail it to my house in New York, since my mom is giving it to me for Christmas but isn't internet-savvy enough to buy it herself.

The post office sent it to Connecticut (???) and the office there called my house yesterday, wondering what was up. Apparently, cdjapan put the wrong zip code, and the post office in CT was freaking out, because they don't airmail to where I live in NY. My mom, who rocks, said, "Just send it ground shipping," and hung up before they could complain. They sent an email confirming that they'd mailed it shortly after.

Good God. The things I do for you, Hyde.

Hyde said he couldn't hear the difference between the 2 Hello versions either. ^.~

Yes, the things we do for Hyde - if he only knew..

& it's driving me crazy. "Hideaway" reminds me so much of some other song - but I can't place it.

Hideaway *does* sound like some other song--but we might not be thinking of the same song. That's my biggest beef with 666; I think Hyde's been in Laruku too long, and subconsciously, he's absorbed a lot of Tetsu and Ken's rhythms and musical idiosyncracies, so sometimes it sounds oddly like a simpler version of a L'Arc~en~Ciel hook.

Like, the very beginning of Hideaway, where it transitions from the introduction to the chorus? It reminds me a lot of Honey. There are other places on the album that make me feel this same way...

I agree - It's not that I don't love 666, because I do.. but it sounds more like Hyde trying to sound like various groups he likes.. (then, I've always noticed that about Hyde - some songs are reminiscent of other artists styles)

Roentgen I was much bigger and better effort on Hyde's part IMO - and took him much longer to do too. Maybe 666 is more like "Hyde light" LOL I thought that "Drop of Colour" was going to be a movie theme song but Hyde couldn't complete it in time.

But I got to give Laruku boys credit - Considering how many songs they have written, not many sound similar.. I've heard a few Gackt singles recently - that sound like other Gackt songs.
