Envy - All The Footprints You've Ever Left And Fear Expecting Ahead
I'm not sure if this is the right album art. If you know please tell me.
Envy. My Favorite Japanese band. Almost everything from Japan is good, and this is one of the best of the best. Envy mixes Screaming with an almost Post-Rock-ish sound. Zero starts off the album giving it some of its Post-Rock sound. The track is purely instrumental and displays some of the talent of the band members. After the first track ends Farewell to Words burst on with flaming intensity. You finally get to hear Tetsuya Fukagawa vocals. This was my first Envy album and when this song came on Tetsuya's voice almost made me shit my pants. I instantly fell in love with him. After the intensity of that track it only gets better. Lies And Release From Silence is the first track on the album to break 3 mins, and you won't be saddened at all by it. Left Hand then starts out with awesome riffage by Nobukata Kawai and Masahiro Tobita. These guys really know how to put passion into sound. Then, A Cradle of Arguments and Anxiousness (you have to love some of these titles!) comes on and brings you down from all the intensity of the last two tracks. It is a sort of mellow track and even has some singing on it.Next is Mystery and Peace, one of my favorite tracks on the album. It really showcases the diversity of he band, it goes from ROARING passion to mellow and back again. If you listen to just one song off this album make it this one.
Now, I leave it up to you to find out how this album continues and then ends. TRUST ME IT IS SOMETHING YOU DON'T WANT TO MISS OUT ON!
