And just so you know that your romaji bullshit is just as inept and arbitrary, there's no way to get that the san in "Barisan Kyouwakoku" is a 3. Romaji is already a compromise and incorrect from the get-go, but we need those compromises because we can't read moonrunes.
If correctness is such a concern, then the only way to go is obviously バリ3共和国

GOAT live album coming through.

Also does anyone have some other releases from him other than Daikanjyo???
>>
>>53299369
>there's no way to get that the san in "Barisan Kyouwakoku" is a 3
but even if you didn't know that, you'd still understand exactly what song "Barisan [...]" was if you'd referred to it as "Bari-3" your whole life, which is the point of using romanised titles over translated ones

>Romaji is already a compromise and incorrect from the get-go
except in cases where songs have been given official romanisations for international release, which is happening more and more regularly. as an example, Kyary Pamyu Pamyu's staff put her song "Tsukematsukeru" on iTunes with that romanised title, so it's correct because it's been approved by the label and the artist

>the only way to go is obviously バリ3共和国
but because the majority of computer users can't type in Japanese, they use roman characters. for that, "Bari-3 Kyouwakoku" is fine.

are you still trying to argue for referring to things by translated titles, or are you just complaining about the way people actually do things by this point?
>>
>>53299531
>you'd still understand exactly what song "Barisan [...]"
Just as well that you'd understand "A German Requiem" is EIn Deutshces Requiem or "Hello Everyone[..]" is "Aratemamashite. Hajimemashite[...]". Do you understand now? Communication is arbitrary, man. Whatever works is correct. Don't get so neurotic about it.
>>
>>53299586
but nobody does this in the case of Japanese music unless there's an officially sanctioned translation (like in the case of YMO or other artists who've been released in the West)
that's why i was asking whether they'd gotten a Western release or not, because it's so uncommon as far as Japanese music goes
>>
>>53299725
>but nobody does this
except for japanese music that is well-regarded among western circles, such as midori. That nobody does this for your ultra-weeb music among weeb circles is another thing. But those kind of people would argue about what is and what is not denpa.

oh, if it's about things you personally enjoy it isn't anything like a problem. i read it as some objective list like "this is the best of Japanese music!", which is a scary thought.

good albums from Japan include
Afrirampo - "WE ARE UCHU NO KO"
Tenniscoats - "All Aboard"
ZAZEN BOYS - "ZAZEN BOYS"
Scha Dara Parr - "5th WHEEL 2 The COACH"
Incapacitants - "As Loud As Possible"
Happy End - "Kazemachi Roman"
neina - "subconsciousness"
Supercar - "Three Out Change"
SARO - "The Fish Which Is Numb In Dusk Of Winter"

this is the best Perfume album for sure, but i think other albums produced by Nakata are better

no way! they're really on the same high level as "GAME" for the most part, but to be honest, the newest CAPSULE album sounds like it'll be terrible. you can't feel any love there any more.

"Sugarless GiRL" has killer songs like the title track and "Starry sky", but i think there's a lot of filler on that album in particular, with "Sound of Silence" being particularly horrible
"PLAYER" is also good, but it gets dragged down by "Factory" which is unnecessary and unlistenable
as for "WORLD OF FANTASY", i guess it's good for what it is, but i'm almost never in the mood for it because it's so consistently intense and loud
