Discography (Albums)


Please choose an album below. I've numbered all the official albums like this: (#1). The remaining albums are compilations/remixes of previously released songs. New albums are always displayed on the first page.

There are two ways you can sample the songs:

1) HTML: This is the original way I had it set up, where you'll have to manually download and listen to each file. Also, if you hover over the links, you'll see the kanji title of each song.

2) Flash Player: This flash player will let you listen to each sample in REAL TIME. (^^) Occasionally you can choose between different playlists (especially if the CD is a remake/tribute to another artist's work).

Here's a quick summary of how the flash player works (image opens in a new window)

Click on the 'Lyrics' icon to access the lyrics. ALL lyrics will open in ONE popup (i.e.: all of the lyrics share the same popup). This way, you won't have a TON of popups open. Besides, you can't read two lyrics at the same time, right? (^^) But if you want to open the lyrics in more than one window, feel free to right-click the links and choose "Open in New Window".

Lastly, to make the pages load faster, the albums will be split into several pages (hence why I'll alternate/color-code the links).


3 ALBUMS
regular text (no link) = CD not available yet

  1. "NEUTRAL" Type
  2. (#1) Goldenvine
  3. (#2) Flower Crown



NEWEST RELEASE
Flower Crown
(Mini-Album #2)

CD cover
+Produced by: avex trax
+Catalogue #: AVCD-17880 [CD+DVD]
+Release Date: December 14, 2005


+More Info:
Like the previous release ("Goldenvine"), this DVD also has two clips: the music video for "Seiya no Tomoshibi", and "Be in love". As for the album itself...words cannot being to describe how much I LOVE IT. ^_^

It's like they took the failure and mistakes they made on their previous 2 albums, sat down, analyzed everything, and found the perfect solution. They've come up with something so moving and rich that it's unlike anything I've ever heard. It has a such a soothing, ambient sound...and the lyrics are absolutely gorgeous. It's hard to believe this album came out just 5 months after "Goldenvine"!!!

In fact, I almost wonder if they never meant to release "Goldenvine" (maybe they didn't like those songs, either?), but avex forced them to release it anyway. (xD) That's how drastically different those two albums are.

I seriously love ALL the lyrics -- they've just as unique as the music -- but my favorite lyrics/song is "Be in love". I've never heard anyone write such a touching song about a mother's love for their child. And the choir at the end of the song was a very nice touch. (^^) I highly recommend this album to everyone!!






D.A.I Works - "NEUTRAL" Type (Akico from Amasia Landscape)
(Dedication Mini-Album)

CD cover
+Produced by: avex trax
+Catalogue #: AVCD-17624
+Release Date: March 30, 2005


+More Info:
(NOTE: If you open the lyrics and look at the bottom, you'll find a link to Do As Infinity's version of the song)

This album is a "dedication" to Do As Infinity, featuring English "remakes" to classic Do As Infinity songs. I personally love two tracks on here: "Flyout" (which is done almost entirely in Japanese), and "Lame Game You Played" (mostly because I LOOOVE the original song, "Kouzou Kaikaku"). As for the rest of the tracks...well...

The lyrics and music are pretty good...but the vocals are TERRIBLE. Akico mispronounced a LOT of words; you almost couldn't tell she was singing in English. x_x

There were some production issues with this CD as well:

  • Track #1: On the CD, and their website, this track is called "Heads on High". BUT...the lyrics clearly say "Hands on High", and that actually makes more sense. So this was a MAJOR, and TOTALLY UNNECESSARY mistake. [ see the proof ]


  • Track #2: The CD, and their website, call this track "Just a Word". But the lyrics clearly say "Just a Word to Let Me Know". This isn't too major when you think about it, but considering they had plenty of space to write the full title, there's really no excuse. [ see the proof ]


  • Track #4: They put the end of the song at the beginning of the lyrics. o_O [ see the proof ]

    Goldenvine
    (Mini-Album #1)

    CD cover
    +Produced by: avex trax
    +Catalogue #: AVCD-17688 [CD+DVD]
    +Release Date: July 27, 2005

    +More Info:
    This is Amasia Landscape's first official album. It's better than "NEUTRAL" Type, but definitely not their best album ("Flower Crown" is AWESOME, and definitely an improvement! It's almost hard to believe that album came out just a few months after "Goldenvine"). The DVD has two videos, called "Angle 1" and "Angle 2". I believe both Angles are the music videos/PVs for every track on the album.

    Unfortunately(?), this album was probably overlooked in terms of sales. Aside from Amasia Landscape being a new group (which means they'd probably have low sales anyway), Do As Infinity -- and all of their solo projects (Van's solo career, Missile Innovation and Amasia Landscape, respectively) -- each released a CD the same day this mini-album was released:

    1. TAO (Do As Infinity's last CD single, before their 2005 breakup)
    2. Missile Innovation (self-titled CD; mini-album)
    3. Goldenvine (Amasia Landscape mini-album)
    4. "Slow Dance" OST (features Van's solo song, "Hold me...". Also has a song by Akico, the lead vocalist for Amasia Landscape: "Don't You Wanna")
    The last 3 CDs didn't sell very well, probably because "TAO" overshadowed them.

    But anyway. (^^;) This album also has English songs, but (thankfully) there are only two: "Ark" and "Konjiki no Budou ~GOLDEN VINE~". These songs also feature Japanese "translations", which for some reason make more sense and have more depth than their English counterparts. >.>

    You can read the Japanese "translations" below (NOTE: if you open the original English lyrics, there's a link to the Japanese "translations" at the bottom).

  • Konjiki no Budou ~GOLDEN VINE~ (Japanese "Translation")
  • Ark (Japanese "Translation")
