They just posted two more songs to their youtube account and both songs sound technically horrible. There’s tons of clipping / distortion in places. It’s like the song was mastered through a tin can and then the volume was maxed out. I really hope this isn’t how it sounds on the final CD because it would be a travesty.
That said, the song Blue is amazing and is very classic Zigzo to me. Upbeat, poppy, a little melancholic.
And for those that don’t know, this album features keyboardist Tooru Yoshida as an official member and he was part of the songwriting process. He has always been touring with the band since the beginning but only helped compose songs off the first album. His contribution to these new songs brings alot of life to the band again and perhaps gives Tetsu more opportunity to focus on singing instead of trying to be second guitarist on every song.
