Michan was notably disturbed when I played Salome.
It's a pretty discordant song, huh...
looks like Kaya and Kozi will be hanging.
There was some picture on facebook from Közi's birthday and Kaya attended so mayb they're friends?
You know.... Mana (sama as usual) related.... they are all friends
Közi's one of the many Kaya lovers ya know
Mana doesn't have friends, there are just some strangers he finds less frightening than others
What a nice way of putting it!
Well, my copy from cdjapan is shipped, awaiting)
For anyone in the UK, Salome is up for pre-order (MP3) on Amazon - http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B008 ... =dm_sp_alb
Judging by Vampire Requiem, I'm guessing they'll be £0.69 per trackor so, which is pretty cheap. Its only available with Salome/Babylon and excludes the introduction tracks, but I'm not too fussed about them anyway.
As it always happens to me, I find the B-side much more interesting and enjoyable than the main song, and BABYLON is so awesome imho.
BABYLON was supposed to be composed by Misa, but in the credits, Misa is NOWHERE! Not even in the "special thanks" section, weird :S
Btw, @MissUMana if you get to hear Prologue -La pleine lune- I'd be thankful if you could write what Renaud Valdenaire says! XD
With pleasure, but I couldn't find it on Youtube. If you'll send me a link, I'll write what he says, and translate it (I assume his part is in French?).
Yup, it's only him speaking in French and some noise/instrumental music XD Gonna try and send it to you!
You're not alone in this, Kaya always seems to put the best song as a B-Side.
I hated all the samples I heard of this single but I have to say it's quite enjoyable having heard it fully now and I prefer it abit more than I liked Vampire Requiem to begin with.
I'm actually really surprised everyone preferred Babylon. It just sounded really... incomplete. In fact, I'd go as far to say it was possibly his worst b-side.
Salome I was extremely pleased with though; Misa really delivered with the instrumental and let Kaya do his own stuff with his vocals. I think I'd enjoy it more if I could understand what the hell he was going about though.
SALOME's composed by Iori from cocklobin XD
If you wanna know what he's going about, buy the CD, the leaflet has the lyrics translated in english
It's been a while now since I wondered if "cocklobin" is the Japanese pronunciation for cock robin, or possibly the American band called "Cock Robin"?
Ah, thanks for the clarification. I'm sort of confused though: Iori composed Salome & Misa composed Babylon - but did Misa 'arrange' both of them or was it seperate? Either that or I read the press release entirely wrong, aha.
Gonna post some of the credits to clarify to everyone:
Lyrics by Kaya
Music by 源 依織 (from cocklobin) <- Iori

Renaud Valdenaire (M1) <- this is weird 'cause there ain't no translation for what this guy says in the first track XD
Oh and as you can see, they skipped Misa entirely in the credits, while on the obi, in japanese, it says BABYLON's been composed by him, tho.
Thanks Koji! Would you be able to transcribe the English lyrics? I bought my copy as a digital download from Amazon.
Kaya have said that it is printed wrong and put the correct credits in his blog..
