I really just need to talk about this.
SuG is probably my absolute favorite Japanese bands. Their music really got me into Japanese music and I definitely wouldn’t be the same person I am today if it wasn’t for SuG and their music. I think they definitely, in some way, saved my life. Fuck, I even have a tattoo of their art from their single “Toy Soldier” pretty huge on my body. Today, their new album, Lollipop Kingdom, dropped and I just finished listening to it. All day, the only thing on my mind was coming home and listening to this album.
I’ve said before, I don’t really like doing “traditional” reviews because I really don’t know what to say about each individual track. It just felt too long when I wrote it up! So, I’m just going to say what I feel instead.
My favorite song is definitely “Pastel Horror Yum Yum Show”. The video is totally amazing! I like the concept of cute but scary. The fashion is so good! I usually like all the SuG fashion, though, so that’s nothing new. I really love the composition of the song. The change in music throughout the song is really interesting.
This album is really fun to listen to! There weren’t any songs that I really just didn’t like listening to. I am a huge SuG fan, though, so there’s no way I couldn’t like it. But there were some awkward moments on the album, too. Some of the transitions were a bit bumpy, like from “Pastel Horror Yum Yum Show” to “Gimme Gimme” was really odd. I don’t know who decided to do it like that, but they should be fired.
After the first listen, I definitely wanted to listen to it again right away! So I did.
tl;dr I love SuG. Go download their new album.
