[REVIEW] BUCK-TICK—Arui wa Anarchy
2014.06.04 Lungua Sounda / Tokuma Japan
»As veterans in Japanese Rock, BUCK-TICK are putting out one stellar album after the other with a sweet collection of deep, dreamy, sad, and joyful songs. Essentially producing more autumn-like music, their album ›Arui wa Anarchy‹ is something I love to listen to in summer. It always brings me back to summer 2014, in which we were laying the foundation for EN.CORE ROCKS. The album also captures a concept of surrealism in fabulous music and its graphic design is simply stunning. But I admit, I picked it for emotional reasons. To me ›Arui wa Anarchy‹ is euphoria to start something meaningful, a high sense of quality, the optimism that I can reach everything I want when I give my everything, and most of all the promise we gave ourselves and our readers with our magazine work!«—Wanda, head of EN.CORE ROCKS.
She adds: »Thank you all for being part of that journey!«
SONG RECOMMENDATION: MELANCHOLIA (track 06 of 14)
AM I GOING TO BE OKAY? »Am I ever going to be okay?«, I asked myself years ago after several exhausting »phases« of feeling down and a lack of motivation. »Yes, you will«, I ensured myself. »This is just grief after losing your mother. In the end, you will be okay, you will be fine.« I learned to live with the feeling of never being fully happy, which is totally fine. After all, missing my mom didn’t bother me. Grief is love after all.
But those reoccurring »phases« in which I wasn’t even able to find motivation for what I loved to do always came back. »You work too much«, I warned myself. »Just so many hard things are happening at once«, I explained to myself. »This is just a phase, you will be okay, you will be fine.« Then a few days back I’ve been reading on depression based on the worry about a person dear to me and I finally realized, that it’s not »just phases«—I’m dealing with a full-blown depression myself.
So no, I’m not going to be okay, I’m not going to be fine. Unless I get help. Unless I stop telling myself that »it’s not that bad«. Unless I stop telling my beloved ones not to worry about me, »because it will just take time and others are worse.« Unless I do the work that is necessary to get well for real. Unless I follow the advice I give to others myself.
I feel incredible sad at the moment, because I know this will be a long way to go, but I will be okay, I will be fine!
Folks, please be safe, be happy, be true to yourself, and get help when you can’t manage getting better alone and with the support of your friends and family!
