REVIEW: MUCC - THE END OF THE WORLD

Without doubt MUCC are one of the most popular and well-known Japanese rock acts. Since years they please their fans with musical highlights. With the new album “THE END OF THE WORLD“ the Musicians surpassed themselves once again.

MUCC open their new album with the smooth rock ballad of their album “THE END OF THE WORLD”. The voice of vocalist Tatsuro gives the listener a familiar feeling but this track also makes clear that the band has further developed. “ENDER ENDER – Album Edit- “ is the second track and the complete opposite of the first one. Starting with synthetic sound effects and hard guitar riffs this song turns out to be an absolute danceable track.
“Ms. Fear” reminds of the long-known MUCC sound and will please all the rock lovers. The virtuosity of the instruments underlines the characteristic voice of the vocalist and the refrain sticks to ones mind already after the first time one hears this track.
The forth song is the already previously released single “HALO”, another rhythmical, catchy tun that animates the listener to dance and jump. “Tell me”, “999 -21st Century World-“ and “369 (Mi-ro-ku)“ form the central part of “THE END OF THE WORLD”. Besides the top vocal performance, those three songs could hardly be more diverse. Whilst “Tell me” is rather calm and quiet, MUCC once again show their real rock soul with “999 -21st Century World-“. Especially the latter features incredible drum elements. The beginning of 369 (Mi-ro-ku)“ reminds of a western song mixed with elements from the 80s. Withstanding all kind of different rhythmical elements and influences all three songs have a special charm that distinguishes them as unmistakable MUCC songs.
“JAPANESE“ almost appears to be an anthem for their own homeland and consequently vocalist Tatsuro sings the lyrics especially emotional, somehow softer in the strophes and a little bit harder in the refrain. One might think that the next track “Hallelujah” is another ballad of the band, but in fact this track is another glorious rock song of MUCC, which doesn’t have anything in common with the well-known eponymous carol.
“World’s End -In its true light-” might be already known by anime fans, since it’s the opening of “Meganebu!” MUCC did a very good job composing a rock track also suitable for an anime opening theme.
Last song of the album is “Who I Want to Die”, one of those ballads that makes you feel goose bumps and shouldn’t be missing on any album. “Who I Want to Die” might be a track that causes the on or other tear at the lives and is a great finish for the album.

Eleven tracks, 47 minutes and a huge amount of creativity and virtuosity make this new album to an absolute highlight. The European version of the Album features additionally to the eleven tracks another special goodie: A guitar pick of Miya. This would be another reason to call “THE END OF THE WORLD“ ones own.

SIX NINE WARS ended. At the last, Yoyogi, a great scenery could be seen.
We completed a really deep tour. I’m glad and thankful, that we could share this period!

image

Also, thank you for the yuzu*. Though, it’s absolutely a grapefruit, thank you. (* note: yuzu is a citrus fruit and plant originating in East Asia.

image

And then, a cup of alcohol after the final, for which I was looking for since the beginning of the tour.
It was delicious! It was delicious, but, somehow frankly

* note: insert drunk screaming here which was presented by Yukke, and it would be a great task to translate it *

or in better words, I was thinking “There is still a lot of things before us! We must do our best, right?…Un…delicious.” 

as I was drinking and “Hmm”-ing, while chewing on my food.

Henceforward, it became an even more enjoyable 9.23!!!!!!

55/55.            Finally, I wrote this as a title!

Lastly, I’m thankful for everyone, who took part in this seven month!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
