permalink I know this may be a bit similar to some topics but I was itching to ask you guys who are the bands/artists that most disappointed you and who surprised you for the better and why?

For me the band who most disappointed me so far were Girugamesh. Ever since they released their Go album I just couldn't make myself listen to them anymore, as if it's a totally different band from the one I used to like. And the visual style didn't add any. And to be honest I don't think they justify their fame. But of course to everybody their own.

Whereas the ones who positively surprised me were Golden Bomber. It took me a while to check them out but after I did the music just blew me away, in every sense, lol. Now I love these guys even though sometimes they are just too crazy :D

permalink I am disappointed of The Micro Head 4n's vocalist, Ricky. I was expecting a lot of skills from him since, come on, he is in a band with Tsukasa and Zero... but when I first heard him, I was sure that I won't be able to listen to his voice and this is true... I am positively surprised by Buck-Tick's new album, yume miru uchuu.

permalink A band that disappointed me is Dir en Gray because there is so much hype around them and I've tried to listen to them on many occassions and I just dont like any of their songs which is disappointing because I thought I'd like them as much as everyone else seems to :o
Many bands have surprised me but there are two that I feel are worth noting: The first is lynch. because the way I found them was by randomly clicking on videos on youtube and I know a lot of people do that but I really didnt expect to fall in love with a band that I found that way :o The second is D because I had a long list of bands and I thought D was gonna be one of those bands that was good but nothing special until I listened to them and was completely blown away by their awesomeness which was very surprising for me :D

permalink I feel exactly the same about Dir En Grey! A couple of years ago when I first heard them I kinda liked their songs with all their wildness, but the more I heard and saw, and the more I picked their themes and lyrics the more disgusted I felt. Especially by the fact that they used Nazi swastika. I couldn't accept that no matter why they did it. I still think their sound is amazing and I do like some of their mellower songs but for the most part I'm ignoring them.

As for Lynch. they kinda got boring for me because I just don't see any difference from their earlier music. I do like songs similar to Adore though, I wish they made another video in that style. It was so cool ♥

And D is also a major disappointment for me because I just don't see them doing anything interesting. It's just same old same old every time. Maybe if they stepped out of their image and the visual kei genre they could use their potential to the fullest... I'm no expert of course but this is what would do it for me. This is the major reason why I've been into MUCC so much these past five-six years *nod*

permalink When I first listened to the Kiddie I kinda liked them but in the end I didn't like any of their songs apart from the first three I heard, lol. I think some bands just should stick to what suits them most...

permalink Disappointed?.. I can't say I've met a band, what has disappointed me
There're some bands that surprised me in a positive way. Like ROOKiEZ is PUNK'D with their last album. And Miyavi. I didn't want to listen him for a long time, but when I've listened, I fell in love with some of songs, and it really surprised me in a positive way

permalink I secnod that. Although I haven't really been interested in Miyavi's music I think the way he changed really commands respect. The way he learned English and started writing songs in that language especially impresses me. I was following him on twitter because of that.

On a positive note I also have to mention cali≠gari because I really enjoy listening to them the more I hear them. I never really bothered to do that properly until now because their image kinda turned me off but listening to them is so much fun, even though I don't know all the songs and lyrics, which I've been recently looking up. But I have to say that I like what I read and listened to so far, lol. And I recommend to give them a listen ♥

permalink I already spoke about Gechena in another topic. I was actually referred to them by a friend, and at first I didn't like them much. But after some more listening I realized how amazing they were, and now I probably like them more than Aurora. I just wish they weren't so short-lived, much like any other project with Sora. I just want to sing nearly every song, haha :3

Check them out!
