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 D ...

4 stars It always breaks my heart when I hear all these fans saying they hate diru because their music and their visual Kei changed. I'm not going to lie, I'm more of a fan of their older music, but I love their new music even more, because it shows their independent and are not afraid to step outside ... (read more)

5 stars Dir en grey passed through many changes since when the band was formed. This studio album is the perfect combination between these changes. With a style more mature than ever, but still with a very good variation of sonority, Dir en grey once again proves that they're a unique band. ... (read more)

5 stars Dir en Grey is in general a great band. I was very intrigued to find them listed here. Not exactly the first place I would look but a nice surprise. I have heard other things by them and I feel that this is their best so far. They have evolved as a band very well over the years and this alb ... (read more)
