Dave Rodgers - 1 Fire

221 was fantastic save for a few examples. Maybe the series needs another year off to really bring out the best material? :P

I think Fly Magic was a really nice song, and Jager in general maintains a high quality in his tracks. His voice is unique and just corny enough for eurobeat. I Won't Fall Apart, What D'You Want From Me and Because of You were all excellent and immediate standouts for their sound. I want more of tha...

Majority of the tracks were very forgettable, and it's ironic that the freshest song of the bunch is one that takes the old, slowed-down EB sound. Hero is just awful, a complete mess, grating vocals and chaotic sound. Ace did alright on the chorus but that riff is obnoxious as hell. Shoot and Walk i...

That wasn't it, no. The song is definitely in the 130bpm range. Maybe one day I'll sift through all the tracks I've got but for now it's a lost cause :P

I'm gonna hijack this thread and ask about a song that's been in my head lately. In the chorus there are background vocals that go "oh baby, oh baby" and after something like "every night and day", that's all I can remember. It's an older track and I'm 60% sure it's Moroni singi...

Those early Pasquini productions with Clara on vocals are gems, a real match made in heaven.
Amazing track. Still can't figure out the lyrics tho

I'm staying in the earliest SEB-releases right now so I'll pick Jenny Kee - Hot Love
I love the slow-bpm tracks, anything around 120-130 that was the norm back then. The kick was so prominent and the melodies managed to wrap themselves around it, which is one of the reasons this song is so good

I disagree. It's Avex' "strategy" (if they have one) that doesn't adapt to the times. If you look at the doujin market in Japan, especially A-One, they are THRIVING. Toho Eurobeat IS popular for a series that pretty much covers ZUN's Touhou songs into Eurobeat (and adds original vocals &a...

Everything sounds like a go, except modernizing Eurobeat. If you modernize it, It will sound like just some EDM dance music and guess what? it's no longer Eurobeat. :P Sometimes I think of eurobeat as the Dead Marshes from LotR. During the Second Age it was the site of the Battle of Dagorlad, a hug...

Because Japan's music industry is still thriving in its own CD-driven microclimate, they're scared to change anything that might upset that. That's a good point right there. The current status quo will harm more than help them tho 3. Search for fresh, new labels or producers to write songs to appea...
