Highly underrated, unique visual kei band that never grew very big overall, but developed a strong, devoted following until their breakup in 2007. This is their first CD release that wasn't on a compilation and the three songs on it show exactly what excellence they were capable of.

Quirky and strange, lots of gothic rock influence but not fully genre-qualifiable(as per most vk,) despite my attempts to do so anyway. Truly a shame these guys didn't get more attention.

Highly recommended to anyone looking for something unique.

Bought it off y!jp auctions.
