Re: Olympics: Masa's "Star Light Zone" from Sonic 1 featured in Olympic Opening Ceremonies

So Misia got to sing the Japanese national anthem, based on her philanthropical efforts, I guess.

But there's still the closing ceremony...

Re: Seventh of July Sunny Day

One more year (with another used VCR player - thank-you, Habitat for Humanity!) and my videotape copy is still going strong.

What would I ever do without it?

Do you think Sammy Sosa is a DCT fan?

Re: New Album (Oct 14, 2020): DOSCO Prime

I downloaded the album from JPS and listened to it with my wife. First, thank-you Yukifox for the great review; it gives some background on what was done to each song in the remix. The first thing my wife said as we listened was "Superficial"; she was referring to the lack of depth in Miwa's vocals....

Re: New Album (Oct 14, 2020): DOSCO Prime

As a 'survivor' of disco (the original phenomenon), I can't say I enjoy this. I am not a big fan of DCT's remakes to start with; I think so much of Miwa and Masa go into their songs that there is very little that even they can add. Some of these songs fit the dance/disco format, but I still don't co...

Re: New DVD/Blu-ray Release: ENEOSxDREAMS COME TRUE (Dorikamu) 30th Anniversary Eve ~ENERGY for ALL~ Concert

I had forgotten about the 'ATTACK 25' restart. I have never been able to get into that album and concert. I could appreciate the songs a little better after watching the DVD, but the main thing I remember about the package is the weird Space Shower special on the bonus DVD, where Miwa complains she ...

Re: New DVD/Blu-ray Release: ENEOSxDREAMS COME TRUE (Dorikamu) 30th Anniversary Eve ~ENERGY for ALL~ Concert

I picked a used copy of this up at 'Book-off' during our trip, and watched it yesterday. Good song selection and performances, although, as mentioned in another post, Miwa's high notes were a bit weak. She looked tired, and (dare I say it?) old, yes 54 at that moment, I know. She also made a few mis...

Re: New Single: 'G' - February 19

Yes, this is very cool.

We're leaving for Japan in about a week, so I'll have to pick up a physical copy and see if we can check out the Gundam film.

New Download/Streaming Single: 'G' - February 19

The theme song for the new Gundam feature 'Reconquista in G' will be the latest DCT single. Release date 2/19/20(!) Give it a listen:

Sounds like it might be the best thing we've heard in awhile from DCT (nice cover art too).

Re: DCT skips Kouhaku again...

DCT have been NHK's darlings for just about their entire existence; a spot on Kouhaku is pretty much the band's call. As far as J-Pop is concerned, NHK always goes for a balance of old and new.

No DCT for 2019. I wonder why?
