My thoughts on Miyavi’s latest album (2015), The Others:

  1. It is really different in unpleasant way compared to his self-titled album
  2. More catchy electric guitar riff and less acoustic guitar slap. However, I personally think that Miyavi is all about that slap 😐
  3. I kinda feel that The Others feels is targeted for “mainstream US audience” due to the lack of the slaps.

In short: a bummer. However, “Let Go”, “The Others”, and the rest rock. It’s just they feel less Miyavi-ey.
