YesAsia Editorial Description

L'Arc-en-Ciel keeps fans AWAKE with brand new hits!

J-pop's top act L'Arc-en-Ciel keeps the surprises coming. After their powerful SMILE TOUR '04 DVD, they are due to hit the music market with their latest major album in July. It is packed with 12 explosive tracks of which 10 were written by nobody else than the band's driving force hyde himself. Besides L'Arc-en-Ciel's latest 4 hit singles Jojoshi, Killing Me, Jiyu e no Shotai, and New World, AWAKE also features 8 more pop gems. Among them are such wonderful contributions as the theme song for the up-coming Fullmetal Alchemist silver screen blockbuster "Conqueror of Shamballa" as well as its end-title song Lost Heaven. With so many goodies included, all true fans should really be looking forward to L'Arc-en-Ciel's irresistible new album!

Excellent: Hyde & Ophelia Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
I just got this album yesterday. Ophelia instantly becomes my latest addiction with Hyde's impressive vocals along with the atmospheric, jazzy and dynamic music arrangements. The track is excellent with its heavy piano and drum arrangements with the slightly off but attractive saxophone addition. This is a must get if you like Hyde and jazzy music. The track itself is worth it. My other 5 stars tracks are: Last Heaven, Poem, My Dear and Existence, and the 4 stars are Invitation to Freedom, Trust and Stars.

great Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
this is my the first L'arc album i purchased out of my own curiosity. i had listened to some of their songs especially the ones used in FMA soundtracks, so my interest on them grew. i surf the net and just order this album because it just recently out at that time. and i made the right choice! this album blew me away. each songs is very unique and carefully + beautifully arranged. some songs are very catchy (like Jiyuu E No Shoutai, Lost Heaven, Killing Me and New World) that would tune you on instantly. Jojoushi gives a lasting impression on me. This song is so mesmerizing and make me fall in love. Some songs might not tune you in for the first time due to its complex and heavy arrangements (like Ophelia and Trust), but believe me they would just grow on you after second/third listening. The lyrics are so inspiring with their deep and meaningful messages (translations are widely available on the net) this album show their maturity, bring up their musical talents and skills to the next levels but at the same time still retaining their original touch. A very memorable album and deserve a special place in your CD collection. Thanx to this album, I'm officially became a L'arc fan!

A Good Album Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
Even though this album is a very different theme from their previous album (Smile), you can still tell that this is a pure L'Arc~en~ciel album. There are many catchy songs on this album (My Dear, Ophelia, Poem). This album also includes the hit: New World and Lost Heaven (from the Fullmetal Alchemist Movie).

This cd seems to have a more Rock centered genre.

a must-have! Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
All of the songs are good! New World, Killing Me, Jojoushi, etc. It also comes with romaji lyrics, so you can sing along even if you can't read Japanese! Ah... and there's some pretty pictures too.

Amazing Customer Review Rated Bad 9 - 9 out of 10
In my opinion, this is the best Laruku -album so far. There are everything: heart-breaking ballads (for exemple Jojoushi wich is one of my all-time Laruku-favourites) as well as energetic "let's feel happy"-songs (Killing Me, New World). Hyde-fans should definitely check up Awake - the amazingly talented vocalist has wrote 5 of the songs. The rest are mostly composed by Ken and Tetsu.
