Fan notes:

  • It’s more Denshi/Electronic than I expected but it’s still quite good. Definitely a departure from the Pura sound but in a direction that’s opposite to how Ryutaro’s played out. Whereas Ryutaro went the acoustic/folky route, Akira leaned hard into a more electronic sound. I like Akira’s PC stuff in Pura so this was nice to hear. It still has some of those Date You-Esque shoegaze elements infused as well but they are much less prominent, it might be considered disappointing if you’re a huge Date You fan. I was surprised at how not-hard his solo stuff is considering what a lot of Pura songs sound like.
  • His solo stuff also has a little bit of hip-hop and industrial production elements in it, which undoubtedly would not work with Pura lol. When combined with the aforementioned genres it’s fresh and interesting in his solo stuff, though.
  • The consensus is that “Adventure of one dollar” is his best new song
  • Imo both Weather Report songs are the best

a very interesting album from what I’ve heard so far. I’ll give more opinion, but for now I remember Pura’s more “electronic” tracks. It feels … fun!
