Album Review: Fire Bird - Miyavi

Miyavi's latest album Fire Bird was released on August 31! I decided to preview it on iTunes before buying so I could pick my favorites. I don't know why I was thinking it would be like his earlier albums (Gagaku, for example), so  I was caught off-guard when I heard the track samples. I didn't know what to think at first, so I waited a few days before listening again. I saw YouTube had the album posted by Universal Music, so I decided to listen to it that way so I could hear the full songs. It's still weird to hear this style from Miyavi, but I kinda like it. I didn't feel that his vocals were as strong as previous albums which is why I wasn't sure how I felt at first and why this isn't my favorite album by him, but I'm sure it will grow on me. 

I think my favorite track is "Afraid to Be Cool" though "She Don't Know How To Dance" is also a good one. :)

I plan on getting my favorite songs first and get the full album at a later time so I can get the track "Epic Swing" on iTunes. Curious about the full track list for Fire Bird? Here it is!





1: Another World
2: Fire Bird
3: Dim It (feat. Rosie Bones)
4: Raise Me Up
5: You Know It's Love
6: Afraid To Be Cool
7: She don't Know How To Dance
8: Steal the Sun
9: Long Nights
10: Hallelujah
11: Epic Swing

Welcome to
The Otaku Reviewers



This blog, "The Otaku Reviewers", was started in February of 2010 on this very same platform, Blogger. At first, it was a venture into the informational and informal world of comics, anime, video games, and Japanese culture. In other words, just a random blog.

Over time, the founder of the blog credited with the pseudonym "RPGhero" was joined by two fellow bloggers and friends with the names "Chansu" and "Deretsun". Together the three bloggers looked up interesting Japanese culture facts, recommended new anime, talked about their own "otaku" interests, and traveled across the United States to various anime conventions.

There have been off periods when the blog ceased production of content and there have been times when there would be dozens of blog posts per week. The schedule varies depending on the lives of the people behind the alias'. However the pattern is that we always get back into the game with even newer information about Japanese culture, anime, video games, and other nerdy hobbies.

The motto of our blog is:
"A cure for your apathy and an inspiration for your dreams. ...Applies to Otaku, anime fans, J-pop junkies, and the like"

The purpose is to blog about cool stuff related solely to anime and otaku stuff. There's no other reason we're doing this.

If you like our blog, please support us in however small a way that you would like. We appreciate our readers!
