shikkoku no mass

Hi, I’m Alex, a guy obsessed with Japanese music. Welcome to Tsukiyo no Hikari. This blog is where I review and share my thoughts on releases the J-Music scene, plus the occasional editorial-like post. I hope to interect with other music lovers, so please feel free to leave comments. I won’t claim to be objective or anything; instead, my reviews will be my opinions, backed up by reasons about where I think the songs did/didn’t do well.

Boring stuff about me:

  • I hail from the land of Oz
  • I’m a student
  • I enjoy watching anime, singing, cricket, reading and (of course) listening to music
  • I’m fussy about vocals
  • I like good guitar-work in my songs
  • My favourite band is abingdon boys school
  • Other Japanese artists I love include AKINO, HIMEKA, Kalafina, Nano, Onmyouza and Phantasm (FES CV Yui Sakakibara)
  • I like rock, metal, anison and some pop but also dabble in other genres
  • I don’t like lower-case titles. Heehee

Anyway, happy reading!

    I’m cheering for you to restart this blog.

    What a coincidence, I got inspired by Kurayami Monogatari as well. Maybe we should find a special way to thank him? :3

  3. Justin says:

    Well you have written posts from May to June, with an unexplained break from Dec to May. Did you finally figure something out, or should I expect another break from you? I guess time will tell 😉

    Also, your evil sister is evil!!!

  4. Evil Sister says:

    I’m not evil. Just realistic 🙂

    Keep going, brother! I believe in you! Will be following all your posts…

    Really like your comments on several songs and artistes !
    Looking forward to see more updates.

    Just curious ! Did you have any chance passing by SID songs ? ( I saw UVERWORLD and Dir en grey in the list here. So just being curious. I am not sure if they will fit with your taste or not. )

      Hello! I’m glad you’re enthusiastic about my reviews. Unfortunately I just don’t have the motivation or interest to blog about music any more. Basically, I’m on hiatus at the moment, just haven’t made a post about it haha,

      I have listened to a little bit of SID. I’m a fan of one of their songs, “S”. From what I’ve heard of them though, they’re not quite my type of band.
