Oricon Ranking

'Jet!/Sunshine' entered the Oricon charts at #4, but has dropped to #7 since... not bad.

According to the Power Plant interview in issue #50, they are indeed working on a new album, although they don't believe it will be ready for release this year. 'Dorispo' is literally, "Dorikamu Sports". You may have noticed that a lot of entertainment media in Japan have titles ending in 'spo'. Thi...

That makes more sense, James. Thanks for the clarification. I wonder if the difference between the score and vocal track was just a matter of Miwa, Masa, and Niehya's level of English reading/pronunciation at that point? But one would think Mike Pela would be coaching them on something like that. In...

After listening to it many times, I believe it is:

"I really love you, and you know, I'd swear that you and I should meet. It feels so good, and I'm sure that we were meant to be as one."

Doesn't exactly make sense, but I've seen much worse English in other Japanese songs.

Right now, besides the wallpapers, there are live reports from the 2002 U.S. concerts. I believe they also announce special events for members- I hope I am actually in Japan sometime when one of these occur. If anything else shows up, I'll let everybody know.

DCT Wallpapers from POWER PLANT

I have been requested to post the wallpapers available from Power Plant. To see them, go to: http://www.msnusers.com/DCTWallpapers/pictures They change them each month, as they are callendars. Kind of fun, although I have yet to have anyone ask me what 'DCTgarden.com' is. Hmm... got to get the word ...

I'll bet Fuji TV and showtime.jp have better quality images... I suppose Fuji sold showtime the rights to their filming, so who knows when or if they'll ever air it... Anyway, regardless of the format, DCT made it onto the DVD, which is all for the good.

It's logical to look at DCT's albums from 'Sing or Die' on as a separate stage, possibly due to the change in record companies the band made at this point (which also meant changes in producers, engineers, musicians, and so forth). Their major attempt to crack the U.S. market began at this time also...

That's what I'm doing- you'll get the 'making of amoretto' DVD that way.

I don't understand why some people can't seem to get into DCT's earlier work, but I think maybe they're just not listening hard enough. Nor do I understand why the first album gets panned- it's good! Don't expect a high level of sophistication on a first album, just listen to Miwa's talent, range, a...

Thanks for the info, Tachikaze. It's interesting to look at the pieces of the puzzle of why DCT failed to get a foothold in the U.S. I'm surprised that their lawyers didn't let them know one of the best ways to stir people up here is to apply for a liquor license. I wonder how things would have turn...
