After severing ties with the band, he embarked on his solo career into the pop spectrum with his release entitled "Mizerable". From there, he has enjoyed great success with his music as a pop sensation.

I'm not planning on adding any polls to this topic either-- they really don't show anything except everyone's desire to get more gold.

Musically, let's go to Gackt, shall we? Any takers on a topic, or shall I throw one out there? (Ex: compare the tracks on a given album to each other and discuss style)

To me it would be better if you started off the topic 3nodding seeing that I'm not good at making those.
This makes me very sad....

But FINE, if you have to be that way, I'll get back to his music.

...You know I have nothing positive to say about his music.
I can still say bad things about it, right?

I'll pose a topic for discussion, and it'll be a little more on the personal interpretation side of things.

Open MS paint and keep the window open for drawing. Then choose a song by Gackt (any song) and draw what you feel the music alone is expressing. After that, go to centigrade-j and look up the lyrics. Post the lyric translations together with your image and explain how the music interacts with the meaning of the song.

Sometimes, making a visualization of the emotions we feel can be more expressive than putting it into words alone, and by posting the image that you create alongside with the lyrics, it provides a jumping point for everyone to understand where you are coming from.

You want to try it?

@Raspberry --- I'm not fond of his music either. You want to participate in the discussion tool I've concocted? The results that will happen when someone who hates his music does what I outlined in my previous post will be especially interesting.

Sounds fun but it may take a while to find which song I want to choose.
Let me say this much, this thread is so going to die, if you haven't noticed there isn't anything really new to talk about and his music isn't that great in fact it's forgettable, and Gackt is just another musician nothing he's done stands out in my mind as being, "OH hey look Gackt did that, how original!" So please allow me to make a few predictions.

1. This thread I give about a month of being on topic and in that Month only maybe 20 pages at the most.

2. There will be less regulars. I'll still show up and I'll do some of those monster post for ya'll.

So if you wanna see me I'll be at the old thread that was banished to the Chatterbox, but good luck with this one.
gonk Can't draw anything, family is going crazy and I don't have the feeling to draw so yesh, sorry but it did sound like something cool to do.

I thought this too....

Gackt really isn't interesting enough for me to have a normal conversation about him and his music.
That is just me though.

I wonder if anyone will take over this Gackt thread, aswell?
