But those are pretty low sales week…barely 3k CD (counting that 2K were FC editions, though not sure if FC figures count for Oricon), I know they are in a different league, but Dir en Grey just outsold them by x6 and after 1 week are already out of the top 50…Im still waiting for my copy, but doesnt look like the CD will have a long run.
On other things, they were just doing a stream for a new MV filming, seems they went to some abandoned temple in the countryside. Looked like a nice scenery for the MV.
I wasn’t judging in any way, it’s just an objective fact that commercially/chart wise this is their most successful album so far, but of course these numbers aren’t everything. I’m not sure if Oricon “already” includes streams, downloads or anything too and it’s limited to tell whether something is “popular” or not, especially outside of Japan.
Already received my FC edition a few days ago. Make sure to rip yours to your PC, because it has an additional Intro and a hidden/secret track
I don’t consider it their worst album at all. It’s experimental, diverse, creative and daring. It definitely still needs to grow on me, but it has some of their most interesting songs since 2012-ish. I’m glad they’re trying new things (even though some people won’t enjoy this) instead of being stuck and treading the same path over and over again like Dir en grey or lynch have been doing for 10 years.
Of course, if that’s your first encounter with MUCC, Kuchiki no tou or Tsuuzetsu will be quite a trip, just as it’s vice versa probably haha
The fan club edition is an actual hardcover book (probably about the size of a DIN A5 book and about 3 cm/1,2" thick) with pictures from the recording sessions. The CD/BD are housed on the last page of the book and it comes with a random cheki (instax polaroid) of the band/members during recording (@TrentReznor: I actually got Tatsurou the man himself haha). It also has a digital bonus (1 hour video from recording a song in real time and PVs for every song).
I think it’s a made-to-order edition, meaning you could only pre-order and can’t buy it anymore (except second hand).
