Orbital Period

Bump of Chicken's fifth studio album finally makes its way onto American iTunes. As a whole Orbital Period continues the poppier, more musically complicated trend Bump of Chicken started with their album Yggdrasil back in 2004. Motoo Fujiwara's vocals and lyricism has matured much since then, here it's intelligent and always emotional. Layered into the sounds. The sounds on the album are thick and complex, tranistioning to a more mellow, melodic style, yet it still manages to maintain the familiar raw, garage rock style of albums like The Living Dead and Flame Vein. Orbital Period is a concept album, with a space-based theme and bittersweet, poetic lyrics which gives the listener a sense of being lost and found and lost again in this great, wide universe we live in. An album filled with complex human emotions, drifting endlessly into space, it's a journey worth taking.

song title mistake

FYI- the 7th song on this album listed here as "hummer song to itami no tou" is actually supposed to read "hammer song to itami no tou".
Anyway, this album remains one of my favorite albums ever. Whether it's got a more pop or rustic sound, Bump of Chicken's music is always about heart. Those interested should check out lyric translations- this is one of the bands where doing so pays off the most!

Way awesome

I love their song Karma which is from tales of the Abyss one of my family gaming series in the world! I love this song so much that I listen to it when I play the game ten times cooler!
