>>61841525 >bad production even though they spent a shitton of money making the album >instruments are so distorted/modulated/butchered you can hardly hear the notes they're playing (to cover up their shoddy musicianship most likely) >whiney volcals
>>61840343 To me it always sounded like Western pop melodies done by someone who never actually heard those melodies, a lot like how most Japanese things are a fun house mirror version of Western culture
>>61841920 I'm not sure what you're saying. I suppose Souvlaki is more open about it being a sad album, with its melancholic sound to accompany the somber lyrics.
To be honest, I don't really listen to the lyrics with shoegaze often. With Loveless especially because it's really hard to understand anything. Maybe the lyrics are actually really depressing and more meaningful than the ones in Souvlaki, but it masks it with the happy sound. I guess if that's the case then sure it's more subtle than Souvlaki in the way that its sound and lyrics are complete opposites. It's not a subtlety that I value much though, personally.
The sound is really what makes Souvlaki so good to me.
>>61841922 I dunno about that. Japanese shoegaze bands are pretty god-tier. Loveless is extremely popular there, isn't it? It was in FFVII and everything after all. Souvlaki probably wasn't that big there, I'd imagine. Maybe because of the odd title and unspectacular cover.
The first time I listened to this, I erased it and redownloaded it because I thought my download was a prank or just fucked up. The others were the same so I listened to it again and now I think it's really nice.
