Circle Jerk Galactic (Review by Deathspark)


39th album, and 39 means Miku! So what do I have in store for this post? Well, honestly I’m not going to do anything too special, just what I’ve been doing for the past 38 reviews. I can’t believe I’ve made it this far, come to think of it… Anyway, our next album is Circle Jerk Galactic. This album is a compilation from multiple artists, and one of them is my favorite. Without further ado, let’s talk about it.

What I like

Fly to night, tonight (Track 1) by Camellia is what I was talking about when I mentioned that one of my favorite artists was in this album. Just to let you know, Camellia is a superior music artist making loads of songs and is known for electronica and dubstep. So how does this song fare? Exactly what I expected from a song by Camellia . It has energy and it has that dubstep feeling along with the tingles to make it sound, tingly? It’s Camellia’s style and it works. I must say, usually Camellia’s works do not fare well with Vocaloids, however this one is spot on. It does its job and yes, just like the title, it’s suitable. This track would be wonderful for occasions like a night party. I noticed I always relate songs to a night party or starry nights, guess I’ll try and change things up if possible…

Infinite Dreamer (Track 6) by Kikuo is quite funky. Not what I expected, but I like it. I like how it combines a touch of dubstep along with old fashioned funk and make it sound new. I don’t know how Kikuo did it, but he did, and it is amazing. Oh, I have no idea who Kikuo is by the way, so I’m curious to what else Kikuo can do. I noticed that Miku can actually say Infinite Dreamer in English properly, which was cool. I guess with proper tuning and proper English pronunciations, Miku can speak English if the person knows what he/she is doing.

One more (Track 8) by y0c1e is probably my favorite in this album. I like how this song has a proper buildup and then bursts into so much energy. I also love how the ambience helps with the buildup and when the burst comes, I can imagine the DJ screaming at the crowd to raise their hands as the crowd cheers. Yes, I’m doing another night party reference, so I’ll try to change this. Perhaps, this is nice to play at a beach, full of party animals on a hot sunny afternoon. That’s a change now isn’t it? The song works after all, it has the excitement and the tempo is consistent. Honestly, if there is a song I’d like to use as an encore, this is it. It’s called One more after all. By the way, y0c1e is an artist I know a little, I didn’t do a full research on him, so I won’t be talking too much about him. What I can say is, he also works on electronica, but that’s pretty much all I know.

What I don’t like

The not highlighted songs didn’t impress me, however I felt that they had potential. So give them a listen and see if it tickles your fantasy.

However, note that the song Circle Jerk Galactic (Track 4) isn’t particularly a song. More like a short track just to introduce to you the next four songs, nothing special.

Conclusion

This album has your electronica and dubstep fix, get it if you are into any of them.

  1. You should really check out Kikuo, he’s one of my favorite producers. His other works are not much like InfiniteDreamer, but his tuning is very good and I really like the feel of his songs.
