Asian Kung-Fu Generation – 新世紀のラブソング Review

coverAKFG was one of my favorite rock bands during my early days of Japanese rock. They had one of their songs as a theme for the Naruto and I found some of their other stuff and continued to follow them.

With this single, which is the newest thing I’ve heard from them this year, they return to form. Even with only two songs, AKFG still show that they are royalty in Japanese rock. Previous releases contained different time signatures and almost impossible to replicate drum beats, but
新世紀のラブソング just feels like home.

Hopefully there is a new album on the horizon because they haven’t made an album that didn’t impress, even if the music itself might have been a little strange to be designated as rock.
