Silex - ARISE (December 20, 2017)

Album = solid. It may be a bit AOR-ish in places, but I guess Crying Machine had those tendencies too. I'm not blown away by this yet, but I could warm up to it with future plays. Most of the songs from the singles plus the instrumental "Forevermore" are my favorites. Hibiki wrote "Somewhere in Between", which is a bit different for him.

Not just slightly remastered, but completely rerecorded. Different vocal phrasings in a few places, extra little flourishes here and there. I'm guessing some of the tweaks they've made during live shows have found their way into these versions.

yes, listening now for the first time, "Cancion de Amor" (for example) has extra keyboard parts that weren't on the original. I still think it's lame to cannibalise all their EP songs but oh well.

Gave the album a listen today and I´m glad I didn´t buy it.
