One Ok Rock – 残響リファレンス 初回盤 Review

One Ok Rock was something I listened to a little over a year ago and I forgot about them.

With their 2011 album, they have firmly taken influence and cues from American 2005 punk rock. It sounds so familair to that style that if I didn’t know I would have thought they were from the US.

But the eleven track album does have a lot of energy with a mix of Japanese and English lyrics. The music is slightly reminiscent of Ellegarden, but really uses the American popular punk rock style.

Not to discredit the band, it’s not my favorite style of music to listen to anymore, but the band is great at what they do.
