"I'm now reading "The Collapse Of The Hits" (Shiba Nagoya). It's a story about the shift from the software sales to the live markets, rather than negative content, is viewed from the Music Industry's view as a whole. I have participated as spectator in several large concerts in 2016. Usually is overwhelming to listen acoustic music with good sound in a Jazz Box, but the enjoyment in large concerts of the sound environment is not just good or bad at large concerts but I also realized again that it's only a momentary nature that can only be experienced at that time. I think that is more encouraging for Jazz Musicians to return to a more primitive music experiences, not just sound recordings. Like Iron Maiden's concert in April was awesome.
BABYMETAL - Metal Resistance:
BABYMETAL, the long awaited second work. You have two works already? That's a marvelous success! Compared to your previous work, there is presence of Heavy Metal and related music like Progress Metal, Viking Metal, and an approach of Japanese V-Kei of the 1990s. Every song in it has a straight and delightful voice of a teenage girl, althought the sound is heavy, it has a very refreshing feeling, I listen the music itself as an elementary fusion of the Idol and Metal system, if you take it and listen the music, you will notice the excellence of its production."
