Malice Mizer

I'm kinda new to all the j-rock stuff but pick up cd's whenever I can. Had seen alot of chat around here about Malice Mizer so when I saw a cd I picked it up to check it out.

I got Memoire + Voyage - sans retour which has a killer cover btw ^_^ The music is great! Cool songs and great liner art.

Is their much else by this group that I could pick up? Any reccomendations?

I only like their music with Klaha. the Bara no Seido album, imo, is the best thing they've ever done. however, it's very different from their previous works, and is less popular because it's not pop-ish. it's very gothic influenced and has mosly opera-style songs. their singles after that are all very good, too. the c/w track on the Garnet single is the closet thing to a real rock song they've ever done. ^^;

I like Illuminati the best....that is when Gackt was in it. (that is a song BTW), I mostly like M.M for their look. I think Mana is a cute girl for being a GUY! Cuter than me....not fair!!!!!!!

They're okay. I find them easier to actually listen to than most j-rock bands (that is, when the music is removed from the visuals).

Awwww~~~ There's nothing wrong with a nice rant about the evils of bootlegs! Not that I'm giving one either... @@;

Speaking of MM...(my MP3 player is psychic... or something)

I think she was going to rant in the opposite direction.

Personally, Merveilles is my favorite CD. I will most likely get FLAMED for saying this, but I am COMPLETELY anti-Klaha. I don't like his voice, I don't like his looks, and I don't like the direction the band was going once Gackt left and Klaha joined.

*shrugs* Personal preference.

((I also like Mana's new band, Moi dix Mois. ))

I think so too !! Klaha's voice is soooo beautiful !!! More beautiful than Gackt's one ! Gothic influence si so much better than pop's !!
