妖怪, Japanese for apparition or epiphany, is truly a title fit for this record. At first, the 108 minutes of runtime seem as intimidating as seeing an actual ghost. Haunted vocals, eerie atmospheres, exotic instrumentation mixed in, overall great song structure if you're into longer compositions. A little Dir en grey worship (which is always appropriate) and - most importantly - a super unique sound and attitude. Genre? I don't know, I don't care. This goliath of an album is worth every second.
