Customer Reviews


"I Gotta Kick Start Now" is the second single release from the awesome band that is VAMPS. VAMPS have truly outdone themselves this time: "I Gotta Kick Start Now" along with the second track "TROUBLE" truly expresses VAMPS' versatility as musicians. "I Gotta Kick Start Now" is more on the rock side of things: bringing in heavy 70's influences, but with a VAMPS twist. On the other hand, "TROUBLE," the cover of the original song by the U.K. group Shampoo, serves as "I Gotta Kick Start Now's" upbeat, dance-counterpart. With tracks such as "I Gotta Kick Start Now" and "TROUBLE," this single is a must!! I highly recommend it to anyone - VAMPSADDICT or not.

Another great single from VAPMS

Though I would've prefered a ballad like Hyde initially said, this was almost just as good. I GOTTA KICKSTART NOW really shows off Hyde's ability to manipulate his vocals into different tones (serious, sexy, ect.), something that he was seemingly hesitant to do in the past. TROUBLE was also very good, though I feel Hyde could've worked on his English pronunciation a little bit more. Sadly, I have to give this single 4 stars, mostly because it is too similar to LOVE ADDICT, and its lacking a serious B-Side. Hopefully their next single EVANESCENT will change my mind, as I'm looking forward to a serious, FAITH style song from VAMPS.

Vamps is a project of Hyde, the vocalist of the visual kei stars L'Arc-en-Ciel, and guitarist K.A.Z., mastermind of the industrial/alternative rock unit Oblivion Dust, who used to work with Hide of X-Japan as well. K.A.Z. and Hyde had collaborated since 2003, and in 2006 K.A.Z. co-wrote Hyde's third solo album, Faith, but it was only in 2008 that they finally made their musical relationship official, announcing the creation of Vamps, which was to be recording on its own label Vamprose.
