My physical collection has expanded a lot since my first post here. I have every physical album from Super Eurobeat Vol. 141 until Super Eurobeat Vol. 205, except for: - Super Eurobeat Vol. 143 (Non-Stop) - Super Eurobeat Vol. 146 (Non-Stop) - Super Eurobeat Vol. 150 (Non-Stop) - Super Eurobeat Vol....

Basically, everyone from Eurogrooves/Time. Their departure was probably the main reason why I stopped listening to Eurobeat, plus Avex's apathy.

Bring them back!

The "plan," if you want to call it that, has a number of faults. First, my biggest concern is your claim that we need to get children interested in the genre. Did you forget that eurobeat lyrics are inundated with sexual innuendos and other unsavoury material, making it unsuitable for a younger audi...

Sadly, I only get excited by GGM, SCP, or Sinclaire's entries anymore since they are the only one, IMHO, that try to push eurobeat in some sort of direction. I can't think of one GGM/SCP entry that has truly sucked this year...(if "Lovely" was less vocally distorted--I would love it even more!). I ...

04. HURRY HURRY HURRY / MELA Sorry, but I'm not much of a fan of this. In contrast to Saifam's golden age of 1999 to 2006, this is airily-produced and just not that melodically fresh. In that case, I take it that you'll end up hating just about everything else released on the album too. Nothing abo...

We share quite a few hopes zoupzoup. I really want to hear new things such as swing time and time signatures other than 4/4. I would also like to see some songs that veer away from the strict "intro-riff-verse-verse-chorus-riff" structure every now and then. Good luck with that. The few eurobeat so...

It's getting ridiculoud these days on certain tracks. The loudest SinclaireStyle track is "Passport To Dance". I have professional monitor headphones worth 160$ a pair (I think it's like 200$ MSRP too) and even with those, you can hear distortion in those explosion in the intro. I even emailed them...

WNight Today's song: Magic Sunday / Dave & Futura Good tune. Takes some bit of getting used to, but good tune. This nearly made me spit my food out in laughter. To me, 'Magic Sunday' is a complete travesty. I don't mind aishu but this song is so boring. Even Dave/Nuage sound bored. I haven't made i...

I agree with your notion about the Karen track, though. I'm honestly not a big fan of hers, as she would always tend to go off-key, as if she either didn't have strong lungs or just sang way too hard for her own good. Maybe One Day is probably one of her better works from her catalogue, but it's pr...

'Maybe One Day' by Karen is head and shoulders above nearly every other song on the album, which is quite a feat considering its age. One of the best that Karen has ever sung. Delta was the other clear winner on the album with 'Fairy Tale' and 'Don't Forget.' Seems like they are finally getting thei...

@Tiger Well, the way they implemented it, they want you to choose ONE song from each album which is kind of hard for people that likes the whole album. Apparently you weren't around to vote for songs on the last download countdown album (SEB170). Try narrowing your choice down to four songs from th...

My prediction is that Hi-NRG Attack will disband by the end of 2014, but I wouldn't be surprised if it happened much earlier than that. Regardless of what has been said and the reasons behind it, Festari's departure will serve as the catalyst for the label's ultimate downfall. Having said that, Rimo...

04. In The Rhythm Of The Night / Cindy However there's one thing that irritates me: there are many "beat-drop" so to say (lacking words to describe those moments) that makes me feel like the song is stopping then restarting over and over. 7.5/10 I know what you're referring to and this is one of th...

In my opinion, Powerful T sounds quite forced on this song, as if to say he can't quite find the right tone for the track, it's clearly not within his comfort zone, or it could be due to me listening to the Dave version more but I highly doubt it. Dave's version has a more consistent, smoother flow...
