A Lighter Side to Ling Tosite Sigure: just A moment (2009)

just A moment (2009) by Ling Tosite Sigure CD album

I lied. I can actually fully enjoy some of Ling Tosite Sigure’s earlier discography other than from their years beginning from 2012 and onwards. One album, that is.

Given that once you get a taste for Ling Tosite Sigure and or TK from Ling Tosite Sigure music the urge for more quickly becomes undeniable. I further delved into the mystery that is Ling Tosite Sigure and their singularity of a sound. A sound akin to a burst of exploding pounding passion (just A moment, a 7days wonder). That fire.

While I favor TK’s solo music project more under the name TK from Ling Tosite Sigure because of the sheer elegance. This album release contains something that I might have been further looking for when it comes to Ling Tosite Sigure, in particular. A lighter but also more experimental side to Ling Tosite Sigure‘s usually highly aggressive rock sound. I love their regular sound with high energy, I do, but their sound can tend to wear me out. It’s great listening when you might lack energy but not exactly ideal if you do not have this problem most of the time.

My Favorites

[Notes: TK’s singing was undulating quite delicately especially in a 7days wonder. Makes one feel extremely good. Embarrassing but true!]

#1-a 7days wonder

The guitar and bass melodies along with the precise drumming by Pierre Nakano have just enough attitude and conveyed humor that it might be why find the song so lovely. What I love the most about a 7days wonder is how graceful it sounds. I wonder if that is possible but there you go graceful Rock. If that wasn’t enough 345 and TK intermix their singing in this song making the song sound incredible. Everything about a 7days wonder is absolutely perfect. So beautiful.

#2-JPOP Xfile

#3-moment A rhythm(short ver.)

#4-Telecastic fake show

#5-a over die

Tracklist Total: 10 | Label: Sony Music Associated Records (Same record label as TK’s solo music project)

I like, no, love this album. Such exquisite music artistry on display! While I love close to all of Ling Tosite Sigure’s discography. This album cements Ling Tosite Sigure as a band that I will now revere forever more. They are not a singles band but a consistent band when it comes to full complete music album releases which is the mark of true music artists. Preferences: Fantastic Magic by TK from Ling Tosite Sigure, Flowering by TK from Ling Tosite Sigure, and just A moment by Ling Tosite Sigure.

Given how taken I was by just A moment. I am certainly aiming to get this album release on CD sometime in the near future. After I purchase the Best of Tornado Hyper Tornado Edition, that is.
