SINGLE REVIEW: Gackt- RETURNER ~Yami no Shuuen~


Gackt- RETURNER ~Yami no Shuuen~


Oh gosh, I was wonderin when this day would come. Gackt is the first Japanese artist I EVER listened to. I can’t even remember what song is was, but I liked it. I personally feel that Gackt is really talented, and one of the better looking male japanese artists out there. With male artists, you often just have to take talent over looks, but I’d say Gakct is pretty good looking. Then again, I’m really not the best judge of male attractivness… Gackt has been famous in Japan for god knows how long… I think since before I was born. Personally, I always thought that he was a bit of a wierdo as far as personality, but I suppose that that is debatable. Regardless of any strangeness, Gackt is great. It’s my pleasure to review his newest single, ‘Returner ~Yami no Shuuen~’


Yet another great song from Gackt: RETURNER ~Yami no Shuuen~. My favorite part is probably the wooden wind instruments, whcih are always fantastic. I love the oldish feel that they add to the song. The music of this song is really the best part, because the great electric guitar riffs combined with the obscure sounds make it super cool, and the mood is just set perfectly. I love the way that the beginning comes in with steadily increasing electric guitar, and how the wind pipes chime in and make a really dramatic atmosphere. Gackt’s vocals are really well controlled and his voice is at it’s typical level of supremay. This song is one of my favorites from Gackt, and I really enjoy it. The song is perfect for the new Fuurin Kazan drama that Gackt is appearing in, and I’m not sure if it has any ties ins with the drama itself or not.
