  1. Not sure if it's the exact same. It's certainly gone through a few iterations. From what I've seen, it's rare that he'd sing the studio version live.

    Actually, Arche is not as bad. It's loud but has a much cleaner sound. TIW feels like they threw overdrive over everything on top of whacking it all up to '11'.

    Production =/= mixing =/= mastering. Production is song creation, choosing instruments, recording them, crafting them to get the right atmosphere for the project. Mixing is the balance of the stems recorded for each song. Mastering is making sure all songs across an album are balanced the same, and getting the final 'sound' of the album with effects like EQ and compression. For example, The Insulated World is a pretty well-produced album (a little laziness in writing aside). The mix is okay, but it's absolutely destroyed by an atrocious master that makes everything sound far too compressed, creating a fatiguing listen.
  4. Yes, the only good version is from「楓」~if trans…~. Definitely. In all seriousness, Ash 2018 is cool. All versions of Ash are cool. I'm actually glad they re-recorded it, as it meant I was able to see it live in person. Great song forever doomed to be a b-side.

    That's funny. I also listened to it this morning. TIW - TWOM single - TIW bonus disc. Although I don't think this is anywhere close to their best material, I still very much enjoyed it.
  6. Never liked CEH from even the first listen. It's the only song I still can't get into. Maybe I'm being unfair. It's... okay. I just feel that it's another loud, bleak, boring song with not much really going for it, and it bogs down the already difficult first half of the album. No way! Downfall is great!
  7. How dare you put those songs in the same sentence. =P Edit: Fuck, I just realised the live version of Followers on the Ochita single is the same performance from that London gig!
  8. Biased for or against? I personally like Devote My Life and Rubbish Heap a lot. Celebrate Empty Howls can go die in a fire. That song sucks. Agree wholeheartedly about everything you say here. I was also at that London show. That was the last gig I went to before all this madness hit. Good times.
  9. Someone needs to rip the audio from the Ochita Blu-ray. There's also the TWOM Blu-ray that has 10 songs from TIW era.
  10. I'm holding off listening until they release this on CD. If it doesn't come out before the next album, I doubt it'll ever be released physically for the masses. At that point, I'll cave. I refuse to pay for mp3s.
  11. Well, it might just be a short song. A lot of people felt Ranunculus should have been longer, too. However, The World of Mercy promotional edit only contained about 1/3 of the full track, so who knows?
  12. Doesn't seem like it's worth the time to make a Spotify account for this. Never used a streaming service before. Not going to start now. The whole situation with DEG, the fucking awful mastering of their last album, the handling of the latest single, and now this, rubs me completely the wrong way.

    Hi, Wataru!

    Yes. Not willing to share here as I don't want this account to be associated with it.

    Other thing to bear in mind is the lack of energy. In live shows, there's a symbiosis between the band (which gives) and the crowd (which gives back). Without the crowd providing energy, a recording can become sterile. So even if it's technically 'perfect', it can be insincere or even boring.
