Kerrang! magazine made a list of 13 essential jrock/metal albums you need to know and I deeply disagree with several of their choices… ESSENTIAL would be bands that changed a scene or influenced tons of bands, regardless of personal taste, right?
As much as I love DOGMA and believe it’s the best gazette work to date, calling it ESSENTIAL is a bit much;
Get Versailles outta here, Mana represents the dude dressing like a medieval princess category well enough, on the METAL side of things we can go with LOUDNESS or Sex Machineguns, c’mon…;
in the direction of sunrise and night light should be on the list;
OSC-DIS needs a spot;
L’Arc demands a spot aswell, maybe True? (suuuper debatable);
Fuck Gokutama Rock Cafe, you can pick tons of more important oshare albuns;
Also fuck Frontiers;
Put Fake Star on that list somewhere;
Glay’s Speed pop or Pure soul?
Yellow Monkey? Siam Shade?
yeah, this is harder than I thought, lol. Anyone willing to give a shot?
