11:01 pm - B'z LPs?

ryosato
 Have there ever been any vinyls released by B'z? I've been collecting records and I would looooove to have some B'z LPs!!! 

Does anyone know how common putting out vinyls is in Japan? I was there in August and I was able to find some Hide / X-Japan ones in a huge CD store, but only a few, and they were re-releases of old stuff (obvsly.) 

Are there any good J-pop / J-rock vinyls you recommend? :D

10:33 pm - New PV - BURN

blueskycomplex


Due out on 16 April, apparently.

I rather like it, although the video is cheesy as all hell. It's got FIRE! And EXPLOSIONS! And LIGHTNING! No shirtless Koshi though. My inner 16-year old can't have everything, apparently :P

current mood: bouncy

4:58 pm - Action PreOrder on its way

ryosato
Anyone else pre-order Action from CDJapan? I just got a confirmation that my CD shipped out today!!! Eeee! It's not released until 2 days from now, right? I guess they got it in time to ship a bit before the release date.

Any idea how long it'll take to arrive? I had it shipped on registered air mail, and I live in Colorado... all the email says is 4 - 12 days. Gah that's a long time. I hope it's closer to 4! XD;;

Also, sometimes CDs come with bonus items if you pre-order, at least in Japan, right? Will Action come with anything? Or is that just a special once-in-a-while deal?

Everyone else waiting anxiously? I know I am. XD

8:50 pm - B'z will be inducted into the Hollywood Rock Walk

i_hearttomjones
Not only are they Japan's biggest-selling artists by far, but B'z are huge even by world standards. Sales of over 75 million albums and singles puts them in 7th place in the world, and no one can deny they have earned the right to become the first Asian artists to be inducted on the Hollywood Rock Walk. The announcement today coincides with the 19th anniversary of their debut release and shortly before the release of their 44th single "Super Love Song" on October 3. The duo, vocalist Inaba Koji and guitarist Matsumoto Takahiro, plan to take part in the induction ceremony on November 19. The only Japanese on the Walk to date are businessmen: Kakehashi Ikutarou, founder of instrument maker Roland, and Korg founder Kato Tsutomu. Established in 1985, the Hollywood Rock Walk is a collection of handprints, signatures, and memorabilia from Rock 'n Roll's greatest musical performers and innovators, who have contributed the most to forge the integrity and promote the growth of Rock 'n Roll as an art form. Inductees are chosen through secret ballot by those surviving among the existing 175 honorees, who include Aerosmith, Black Sabbath, Eric Clapton and Van Halen. B'z nomination had some help from inductee and friend Steve Vai, with whom they have performed. The Rock Walk is located on Sunset Boulevard, in the outer lobby of Hollywood's Guitar Center.

7:32 pm - B'z News

ryosato
So, since people seemed to be interested in having B'z news and such posted here, I thought I'd just pass on the cool stuff that I've heard about lately. Most of this I heard about first on the net party site, but I really only go there every few months because I just don't think about it, I'm not a big message board person now that LJ exists, you know? But since I DID bother go look recently, and found all sorts of cool stuff, I thought I'd share it with the rest of the people on here that probably haven't heard yet. ^_^

First off, B'z new single will be coming out on May 9th. The single will have two songs, Eien no Tsubasa (which is a theme for an upcoming movie that looks like it's possibly about WWII fighter pilots?) and Lonely Stars. If you go here you can hear clips of both songs. And here is the 2:40 length version of Eien no Tsubasa on youtube, with the music video that must have been released for the movie.

(Lonely Stars sounds awesome, but I'm not HUGE on power ballads, so Eien no Tsubasa isn't doing as much for me. At least, that's what I thought at first, but now that I've listened to Eien no Tsubasa more, it's really starting to grow on me, just like all their ballads tend to. XD Tho I'm still looking forward to Lonely Stars a lot more. It sounds a bit more original to me. Discuss?)

In other news, B'z also just did a new song called "Friction" for a racing game called "Burnout Dominator." From what I've heard, the song IS on the American release of the game as well (oooo I want it! XD) To download the song, go here! (If downloads aren't okay lemme know, but I figure since this doesn't appear to be something that'll be released on a B'z album, it's okay?)

Now for the last and possibly most awesome thing, if you go to this site you can watch the Osaka Namba Hatch concert! It's not the entire thing, at the beginning some of the songs are cut short, and it doesn't go through to the end, but what is there is awesome! This is totally the best concert I've seen (okay, I've only seen the dvds, not actually been to one, but still) because Koshi just seems WAY more into it than usual - which is saying a lot! Definitely check it out, it rocks. XD Watch it here! I believe this concert was a limited one, I've heard you could only get tickets by buying one of their CDs and 1000 or so of them had tickets in them... I'm so jealous of the Japanese fans that have these chances!

I guess that's it. Hope people enjoy some of this stuff as much as I have.

PS: In that concert there's an English version of "Home." I would kill for an mp3 of this!!! Does anyone know if this has been released or if there's any way to get it??? I'd be forever greatful~!

1:59 pm - Poll

ryosato
Hi everyone! This group is sadly very quiet, but I'd like to use it more to post news and stuff! However, there is the B'z Net Party forum online, and I think that it's possible that basically everyone on here is on THERE. Now, I prefer LJ 'cause it's so much more convenient, since I'm already ON here. So I was wondering if other people felt the same way! If so I'll totally be more active in posting news and information and stuff as I find it!

10:33 am - IKAROSU

ikarosu
Hello everyone! It's great to see a LiveJournal community for B'z fans. I've recently joined LJ, therefore I'm a newbie around here. As you probably may have noticed, my username is based on a B'z song title.

I got hooked on B'z from watching the dorama "Beautiful Life" (FYI, the song "Konya Tsuki no Mieru Oka ni" was used) around two years ago. Since then, I've been listening to a lot of B'z songs.

I've bought the B'z original albums (in chronological order) "Brotherhood", "ELEVEN", "BIG MACHINE", and "THE CIRCLE". I'm missing "GREEN", which would've been between "ELEVEN" and "BIG MACHINE". My favourites from each B'z album would be Brotherhood's "SHINE", ELEVEN's "Seventh Heaven", BIG MACHINE's "Hakanai DAIYAMONDO", and THE CIRCLE's "IKAROSU" (this one obviously). Notice how they're not singles. I also have the B'z singles "May" and "BANZAI".

That's all I have to say right now. I will try to be active in this community.

B'z rocks!

Hi there, I'm newbie here.

I'm also new to some of B'z's songs becuase I stop listen to J music for a while, so I miss some (many, tons) of B'z singles and albums. But, actually, I think I'm a bit ancient. Coz I listen to B'z since B'z, In the Life, Run, etc. Their last album I bought at the time was The 7th Blues. Then I jump to their rather new songs like Ocean and those in The Best Pleasure II... I will surely have to find those songs I've missed at cd shop soon. ^^

Imho, I feel Koi no Budokan or Banzai or Yasei Energy sound familiar to me, like those in their early albums that I love, moreover, the sound is more mature (and Inaba-san's voice is better ^^). One that not change is Tak-san's guitar, so unique, I can remember it anywhere. For Ocean, even though I don’t really like their early slow songs e.g. Mo Ichido Kiss Shita Katta, Alone or Itoshihito yo Goodnight, but I like Ocean a lot. ^^

I feel I have a lot of homework to do now, try to catch up with their works (consider they are very productive band, I must have a realy hard home work ^^). Anyway, I'm happy to come across this community and found a lot of discussion regarding B'z's work. Will have to read all topic of this comm. So happy to found fans coz around where I live, not many know them.

PS. Hope you don't mind my broken English, I'm not a native. ^^'

10:48 pm - Hello

paul_is
Hey what's up? It's hard to believe this community's been around for three years now! I made this community when i was still in high school, and i'm sorry I haven't keep it updated with Bz info/promoted as much as it could be. What's up with all you guys/girls?

Anyway, the reason I posted is because I want to raise a question to B'z fans, mostly those from the old school who got into B'z when Loose came out, but it really applies to everyone that digs B'z;

Do you think B'z music is getting weaker?

Personally... I think so. Tak is the reason i picked up a guitar, so this is hard for me to say. After Eleven i thought "Will they stay in this more mature style?" and was uncertain of their future. When Green came out I was floored. I LOVED almost every track. So much energy in those songs, even the slow ones.

When "Yasi no Energy" and "It's Showtime" came out I was like "Why are they following up so soon?" The singles were good, but certainly not on par with those from Green. When the album came out I was really disappointed; I didn't like much of the music at all. Everyone slips up once and a while, but their newest material just doesn't excite me the way their other releases did. The single "Banzai" was pretty rockin' but I wasn't feeling "The Circle" at all.

So... what does everyone think? Am I an old timer or is old B'z better? Discuss ;)

9:01 am - Glad to see this community!

Hello everyone. Glad to see a community for B'z fans. I've been a fan for about 2 years now. Negai was the first song I hear that really captured me, and since then I've devoured everything B'z.

I'd like to know everyone's opinion on what maybe be the track with the BEST guitar solo. I'm trying to illustrate Tak's greatness to a few friends and I don't want to just start throwing out tracks without a bit of input and research first. While I've listened to most of B'z music there's a LOT to go through and I'm afraid I'd forget something great. So post your favourite guitar solo if you have time! Thanks.
