ストレイテナー (Straightener) – Dear Deadman Review
I think that I will always be in the opinion that Straightener are going to be one of the most influential Japanese rock bands that have existed. Going from a trio to a foursome, the band only expanded their music.
Dear Deadman may have been before that addition, but the album contains some of the most classic songs by the band. “The Novemberist” has to be one of my most played songs. It’s funny because even though I might not recognize the actual titles, I can recognize the songs plainly.
The album is a must listen, don’t even think about passing it because it’s also an important transition album.
