Months and 7 reviews later, here's my Comiket 89 recap! I think I've listened to more albums this comiket than any other before. That being said though, there weren't a significant amount of albums that I ended up liking. However, there were a couple of albums that really stood out to me this Comiket.
[Osamuraisan] - Osamuraisan Selection vol.7 ~Bosa Lon~
Osamuraisan... how should I put this? He's a damn doujin music GOD. I can't believe that I've never heard of him before this album. I discovered this album randomly while looking through 9tensu's C89 albums. The crossfade immediately caught my ears because I've been starving for some acoustic guitar music ever since Forest306 went on break (he's sort of back now btw). In addition, the music was also Bossa Nova, one of my favorite genres! Third point, as if the first two weren't enough, was the beautiful voice that I was hearing from Lon. I couldn't resist listening to the album soon after hearing the preview.
A little bit about Osamuraisan: he is a solo doujin artist who specializes in making acoustic guitar arrangements of popular vocaloid songs. You can find his music on his YouTube channel, Spotify, and Google Music. I believe that his YT channel has a lot of arrangements that aren't released on his albums, so be sure to check those out as well.
Anyways! Just to reiterate, this album is a bossa nova arrangement album of 6 popular vocaloid/original songs. They're all sung by Lon but Osamuraisan also included 6 instrumental versions for those who are more interested in his guitar work. Ready for the review? Read on!
[Release Hallucination] - Melancholia
I've got another EP up for review today! This time it's a progressive metal EP by Release Hallucination, a progressive metal circle consisting of Emi on vocals/lyrics and Kaorin on guitars/composition.
Now, I've only discovered them recently through Melancholia's preview. Since then, I've listened to their previous EPs and full album. How did they sound? Pretty damn awesome. Read on for my brief impressions.
I was pleasantly surprised when I first heard this preview on 9tensu, long after C89 was over. AVTechNO! is a doujin circle that I've never heard of before, but it seems have been around for a while. Vocaloid fans will probably be more aware of his works than touhou fans, as he only makes vocaloid music. He specializes in techno and electronic music as his name implies, but his works vary a bit in style.
PULSE is an EP consisting of two songs voiced by Hatsune Miku, an instrumental track, and instrumental versions of the Miku songs. It's the first vocaloid album that I'll be reviewing here! Read on for the full review.
[EastNewSound] - Innocent Abyss
For those who aren't familiar with EastNewSound (ENS), they are an old electronic touhou music circle from 2008. It is a pretty staple circle that consists of its large core arrangers, vocalists, lyricists, and reoccurring guests.
Anyways, it's another Junko inspired album art! Despite that, there are only actually 4 arrangements from Legacy of Lunatic Kingdom (TH15) on EastNewSound's latest album. Does ENS disappoint once again? Read on to find out!
