[J-Rock] L'Arc~en~Ciel
#71
It could just be because of Gundam 00, but Daybreak's Bell has got to be my favourite post-2000 L'Arc~en~Ciel song. It kinda sticks out like a sore thumb on Kiss because of how good it is.

I have no idea what that is, but my favorite post-2000 L'Arc-en-Ciel song is easily 'X X X'. I can easily understand why people would strongly dislike that song though. 'Chase' is another one I really like from that era.

Ah, I had "Daybreak's Bell" in the OP, but that video got blocked by Sony of course. Here's the short version for Gundam 00 at least.




It's a bit dark and a lot more moody than most of their songs from that era. Also, I really love the rhythms on it as well as the chorus. I mean I don't think the band is as good as when they first started (which is not an uncommon case), but I am surprised they made a song this great so late in their career that stands with the best of their early material.

I should revisit Butterfly. I remember it being a fairly good album, but I'm not too enamoured with X X X or Chase. Laugh

'Butterfly' is uneven as hell, but I like it quite a bit Smile
