2 stars While their earlier albums were a great listen and were original in style, this band has gone downhill. If Korn, Slipknot and various other drop-D nu-metal bands are your thing, Dir en grey's releases since Six Ugly are probably right up your alley. They're about as original as System Of A Down or Mudvayne's "I.D. 50", but at least I.D. 50 has wicked basslines, something Toshiya has stopped doing.

This album is better though. Tracks 5, 9, 10, 13, and 14 are up to par with their earlier material, but the rest of the album is not worth your time.
