Ich finde es sehr schade,das es diese CD`s nur als Import bei uns gibt.
Bestimmt wäre sie hierzulande unter Animefans ein großer Durchbruch gewesen.
Für Fans japanischer Electromusik auf jedenfall ein Muss.
Ich habe die CD gekauft,ohne vorher zu wissen was mich erwartet.Dieser Kauf hat sich gelohnt.Bereut habe es ich nie.
The genre this falls under in techno/pop(My iTunes says electronica/dance but it's basically the same.), which is the genre Miku is best suited for in my opinion.(Of course you'll find her covering almost all genres on the internet.) There's quite a few slow songs and some really catchy, quiker songs that always makes me want to dance. The songs Packaged, Last Night, Good Night, and Strobo Nights were also featured in Miku's first game, Hatsune Miku Project Diva, which I also own. Another song on this album, Finder, was featured in the sequel to it, Project Diva 2nd but remixed.
KZ, the composer, definitely has a unique style when using Miku, like most Vocaloid composers, as he(actually I don't know KZ's gender...) sets her to a higher pitch(Last Night, Good Night for example is so high I thought for a while no human could sing it until I saw fan-made covers of it.) and the songs themselves have a very nice techno/pop feel no matter what song it is. It's hard for me to pick a favorite song but I'll note the ones I like listening to the most. Anthem, the first track, has a really good dance feel to it to me and I really like how slow it starts out and has a "fuzzy" like sound in it. Packaged of course is the iconic song for this album and like many Vocaloid fans I love it and how it has such an upbeat feel. Light Song and Finder I have almost the same opinion on, both have a very nice pop feel to them. Strobo Nights and Last Night, Good Night I'd say could be my favorites, Strobo Nights is easily just as famous as Packaged and I love Last Night, Good Night because of its slow, dream-like feel to it. Couple that with Miku's voice and the translation to the lyrics, this is the song that made me fall for Miku in the first place. Track 6, which I don't know the title name because it's written in kanji that I can't read, I'd also like to note as I love it too. Mainly because it sounds like traditional Japanese music, it makes me think like it should be played at a Japanese festival.
To finish things up, this, like many other Vocaloid albums, any Vocaloid fan should get and add to their collection of songs.
Hatsune Miku is the first Vocaloid database that has changed the way music is viewed and created in Japan forever. It all began when users uploaded music that contained her voice onto Nicovideo, (Japan's equivalent of Youtube), just a few days after Miku was released. A few of these people made a name for themselves because the songs that they composed sometimes rivaled that of professional musicans, and the end users were encouraged to try and sell them as the fine print from the publishers specifically states that anything made using Vocaloid software is equivalent to composing music using any other type of instrument.
And what you're looking at here is the first commerical album containing music sung by Hatsune Miku and composed by a group who calls itself livetune which was a top seller at Amazon Japan's site for quite some time after it was released over there a year ago. I'm not talking about top in its genere either; I'm referring to overall sales. Yes, the album is that good, but before I go any further though, here is the track listing for the album:
4- Shooting Star
7- Light Song
9- Hibi no Yume Omoi
11- Dokdoki Heart Tune
12- Strobe Nights
13- Last Night, Good Night
14- Packaged -piano ver.-
15- Our Music
Now if you were looking at this track listing on the back of the case, you'll notice that it's actually a small cardboard enclosure covering the jewel case. The designers for the packaging of the album clearly understood that the experience begins literally at the box; a laser hologram of expanding and retacting squares along with what looks like a rotating radar oscilloscope centered right where the edges of the squares make contact with each other when they reach their biggest size catches the eye and really goes well with the surreal illustrations that grace both the front and back sides of it, which is really open to your interpretation (my guess is that Miku has the power to alter reality wherever she goes). The disc iteslf is an etching of the jacket illustration found inside the box and looks pretty well detailed, but at this point you'd probably want to put the CD in your player and start listening to it.
The style of music that the box says for the album is techno pop, which is one of Miku's ideal genres. There are also a few non-electronic tracks to add some variety to it. Now if you're one of those people like me who say, "well I don't like techno because almost everything I hear is a repetition of the same beat over and over again with no variety in the melody," do a youtube search for some of these songs first. Don't worry; it's safe to do without feeling like a pirate since a decent number of tracks from this album were originally released on Nicovideo to be viewed by anyone for free. The key songs you should listen to are:
2- Packaged: This was the song that put livetune on the map. What's really impressive about this song is not the fact that the vocals and music mesh so well together, but it was completed in around a month just after Miku was up for sale in Japan. Yes, the artist is that good. The lyrics are Miku's uncertainty about herself singing her first song, but after she realizes that the end user was the one that made this all possible for her, she sings her heart out. This was also one of the songs chosen for Hastune Miku: Project Diva, a rhythm game created by Sega for the PSP.
12- Strobe Nights: This is another well-known song on the internet. Very atmospheric and refers to Miku's fascination with seeing the stars in the sky for the first time and reacting like a child by trying to "catch" them. Like with Packaged, this song was also chosen for Project Diva and was used to promote the game before its release.
13- Last Night, Good Night: One of the most recognized tracks on the internet primarily because a music video was released for it done by redjuice, the same person who did all of the illustrations for this album. It's also an interesting song in that it's supposed to be a lullaby, but Miku reflects upon the fact that since she's immortal because she's nothing more than an AI, she worries about the person in the song she's watching over and hopes that something will work out between them in the future. This was also another song chosen for Project Diva.
Now if you liked those three songs I mentioned, then you'll love the rest of the album, as they're around the same length and quality, which means that's over an hour of really good Vocaloid music. And you'll also understand why Hastsune Miku has become the world's first virtual diva.
So this CD is excellent! It features 15 tracks all of excellent mix quality. The best of course being the legendary super hit "Last Night Good Night". I'm reasonably sure this is not a Chinese / Taiwanese reproduction but the genuine Japanese artical but I won't swear to it. I have to say unlike many mp3s, I can tell a difference between the CD rip and the internet downloads. I know Anime fans and most people around the world prefer at this point to steal our music, but I encourage you to make an investment and support the Artists you love so they can continue to bring us more songs to move us and get us moving!
