Zankyo [Album] : Full track list

0 comments Post a Comment

Zankyo or as some spells it as Zankyou means Reveberation or Echo. It was released in June 2009 after a 3 year hiatus from his last compilation album and a full 8 years after his last studio album. He didn't disappoint.  After backtracking on his albums and songs, I realise Zankyo is deeper on so many levels with the lyrics another milestone in his musical career. There are so many songs I love in here but this is also a darker and more morose album with songs about war and violenece as represented by Ultramarine, his moving ode to his grandmother who passed on earlier that year I believe, Michishirube to the grand song Phantom, super sad love song Saiai, a great musical instrument piece, 99 which like Saiai was featured in Suspect X the movie but the best of all, when you thought Masha is all serious, morose and love sick, he presents a song that is quite unlike his style that proves he is not just a ballad man, Koufukuron with great lyrics to match. In fact I am not surprised with the creation of  Koufukuron actually, he has sang  very uplifting song before but to hear it in this album amongst the tear jerkers, I find it unique and so addictive! One of my favourite albums of his, more so when his vocals has reached new heights in here, quite a vocal masterclass here. Great thing is this is probably the only album with all songs translated into English, all thanks to fans effort. Of all the lyrics, Michishirube moved me the most, not really because it was dedicated to his grandmother but because the words are so powerful and so true. Do check the lyrics out.

The following is the full track list of this album and whereever noted means the following either combination.

Sometimes I receive some media files or stuff about Masha that can't be publicly shared, but I can however share privately, such as concert clips, etc. I would love to share whatever I got with you, as a way of disseminating information of Masha to the masses. You probably have all that stuff if you're an experienced fan, but if you are new to Masha or does not know other experienced fans, you probably won't have most of what I can send to you. I don't send emails often, since frankly I don't get such stuff often but when I do, I will send the link if I am allowed to do so. So do join my contact list but be reminded, you're not allowed to repost/redistribute/reupload whatever I send you whether in whole or in part. Anyone interested, redirect them to my blog and ask them to join my contact list. But this is only open to those who will answer the questions in the form below accurately. If you're successful, you will receive quite a few emails since I group all links together into categorised documents. If you're not, I will email and inform why (probably answered some wrongly, such as title not in Romaji or wrong answer). Once you found the answer, please RESUBMIT THE FORM. If you did not receive my emails (whether the many materials or rejection email) within 3 days of joining, please do resend your request. Thanks for joining!
