    On his Fleur diary? That's the commemorative set from Shoxx. It's a compilation book of 10 years of Shoxx articles about Lareine plus a CD with a new song. It's a mail order only item -- we preordered it in February or March (I forget) and it's being shipped now after some delay. And later this summer the mail-order Undercode tribute CD "Anamorphosis" will be shipped. That will have 1 new Lareine song plus other bands covering Lareine.

    It's a short CD.

    Jyui: Urei no hana ga tsuzuru ai
    The vocalist from 12012: Dir en gray
    Izabel Varosa: Destinee

    And Lareine, in addition to the new song, is also doing their own version of "Chinmoku no Hane" which Kamijo wrote for Kisaki Project. I hope the new song is "Darkness" which is an awesome sexy one they've been playing recently.

    I couldn't find anywhere more appropriate to post this, but I was digging through some of my things and found this half of a magazine clipping with some LAREINE information, someone here might enjoy it.

    I should probably revisit this band... I seem to recall greatly enjoying Crystal Letos... But knowing me and how I discover bands, I'll probably learn that that was one of their worst albums/compilations or something XD

    Crystal Letos was just a random EP with musicbox versions of their "greatest hits", definitely not their worst, it's still a very pretty album.

    also: looked the album up to check something and apparently it's so rare and out-of-print it's selling for over 95euros on amazon. Wow, definitely didn't know it was that dear now.

    The major label album, "フィエルテの海と共に消ゆ~THE LAST OF ROMANCE~" is amazing, and the 2014 release "LILLIE CHARLOTTE within Métamorphose" combines an amazing single and a mini-album, it's very solid too. If you want to get into LAREINE, these two releases are a great place to start.

    I think I would know... almost 7000 LAREINE plays on last.fm lol.

    Or maybe it was Never Cage I'm thinking of... The rusted gears of my memory are slowly turning now. XD

    I recommend just listening to the "Blue Romance" and "Fierte no umi..." albums, and/or the "Reine de fleur" compilations.

    Never Cage is their 2004 full album. A great collection of late era LAREINE songs, it contains a lot of upbeat rock songs that use the band instruments combined with synthesizer instruments, and almost every song contains a very good guitar solo. But that's the thing about this album... the songs are very similar to each other, they use the same formula a lot with a new coat of paint. But that doesn't change that the formula is very effective and addicting. It's a real fun listen for me and a lot of fans, but some people might get bored with it. Expect solid compositions and a lot of quality songs, but don't expect that much variety in style and sound as you would with the Fierte album. Also, the visual aspect of this album, or late era LAREINE is less colourful and unique compared to the major era. But again, still very good. My favourite tracks from Never Cage are 愛されていた日々-Ever Love-, 月の狩人, and 蒼の巣窟. Here's one of these songs:

    I uploaded this new rip of the beautiful fiançailles VHS! It's soo elegant and gorgeous... Great video to show people the beauty, and popularity of LAREINE.

    also, not sure when it happened, but it seems that a small portion of Lareine's discography has been added onto Spotify.

    Seems super out of the blue but it's a nice detail. Wonder how it happened all of a sudden.

    I wouldn't completely scrap it off considering Közi's ZIZ is on there and other fellow artists are there too, maybe they'll decide to do it too. Also would consider it knowing they're getting more and more aware of the newer foreign/younger fans.
