Break the Records -by you & for you- is KAT-TUN's 4th studio offering . This's their 3rd original album & it's scheduled for release this coming Wed .

4 singles made the cut in the guys's brand new album & this comes almost 10 months since their last studio album KAT-TUN III -QUEEN OF PIRATES- .

The limited edition comes with a 36 page booklet while you have to make do with a 15 page booklet & a bonus track MOON for the regular edition .

This's the 2nd time their album feature solos material for each of the members , the 1st time such a thing happened was for their 2nd album offering cartoon KAT-TUN II you .

As such , I will review the solos separately from the singles & the group album efforts .

DON'T U EVER STOP is the band's 7th single & I think it's quite a fitting way to kick things off with it & here I was real worried on whether will their 'oldest' single in Break the Records -by you & for you-will make the cut as you're able to find the extended -LIMITED EDITION- video of the song pertaining to the DVD contents of KAT-TUN III -QUEEN OF PIRATES- so thank goodness it was left intact !

I have a soft spot for DON'T U EVER STOP because this was the 1st single that I heard of the guys in full & it's frankly interesting that they made use of glass breaking noises for the melody .

My only grouse about the song's that the guys should have included the -LIMITED EDITION- version of the song since after the 2nd chorus , there's an extended version of Nakamaru's beatboxing which was fantastic but other than that it's a good start for an opening tune .

SADISTIC LOVE is the 1st new album group offering & yes I still stand corrected in the fact that it should have been either an Ueda or a Tanaka solo haha .

Other than that , it really does sound like a cross dimension of 7 DAYS BATTLE & T∀BOO . I think it's great that Ueda was able to sing the lead in most parts of SADISTIC LOVE because I frankly don't think it's fair to just keep letting the 2 co lead vocalists Kamenashi & Akanishi to keep doing that all the time so it's nice for a change .

RESCUE is the group's most recent / 10th single prior to the release of their new album offering . This was used as the opening theme song for Nakamaru & NEWS's Masuda Takahisa's drama of the same name titled RESCUE - Tokubetsu Kodo Kyujotai .

To me this's their most experimental & heavily English influenced single that they have released to date . I frankly was shocked that the chorus were in perfect English & for them to able to execute this , it's pretty something & their dictation's clear which's great .

While their other singles have a more rock based influence , it doesn't qualify for RESCUE . Instead what you get's a mean mix of futuristic electro tune which's so insanely catchy , I dare you not to listen to RESCUE without humming along with it .

The fact that there's rapping done by Tanaka & beatboxing done by Nakamaru on RESCUE just step things up to a whole new level , music wise & both the song & the drama go in synch with each other extremely well . You can hear the sound of heartbeats & fire in the beginning of RESCUE .

Just like DON'T U EVER STOP , I felt that the guys should have included the video version of RESCUE as after the 2nd chorus rolled out , it has a really great extended instrumental mix that I simply adore but oh well sometimes you can't always get everything that you want so this will do .

WATER DANCE is KAT-TUN's 2nd group album track & I really loved the preview when I 1st heard it & for me to be able to finally hear the full version , it was worth the wait .

I love it that it's such a lushed chilled out piece of no. . I don't know if I can consider this as a ballad but I suppose so ? & it's nice to hear Nakamaru leading in most parts of WATER DANCE . I like that because I honestly think that he can sing really well .

I can't help but compare WATER DANCE with Splash ... (aside from association of the song titles) except in this case WATER DANCE's a lot more better in every single aspect as Splash ... frankly creeps me out to a certain extent .

ONE DROP is their 9th single which the song was used as the opening no. for co lead vocalist Kame's drama Kami no Shizuku .

Because of the fact that ONE DROP was used to promote a drama that placed heavy emphasis on wine , you're able to droplets of it in the introduction of the song .

I still think that this song sounded like an slightly upbeat version of their 4th single Yorokobi no Uta & it's quite on the mellow side which's quite rare as usually when you think of rock influenced music where it should have fast & thumping beats , it doesn't go for ONE DROP's case .

People might not like it as it probably sounds generic but I have no problems with ONE DROP . It's funny that I tend to overplay the song a bit more than RESCUE :O

I jump all the way to track #11 Kimi Michi (Your Road) since I mentioned before I will review the solos separately from the group's singles & album tracks's counterparts .

I still stand corrected in the fact that I find Kimi Michi probably to be the weakest album track in Break the Records -by you & for you-. In fact I had to take a lot more listens than before finally remembering how Kimi Michi sounds like .

I did had deja vu vibes of 「un-」when I 1st heard Kimi Michi as I can't help but realise how both tunes had the same opening bridge .

But after that's out of the way , I think Kimi Michi's a decent group offering . It does sound like RUSH OF LIGHT to a certain extent too . Just that I will not consider Kimi Michi as my fave album track in this context .

Shunkashuutou (The Four Seasons : Spring , Summer , Autumn & Winter) is probably their less rock inspired tune in here & it's a bit more on the poppy side but not full blown guitar pop like their 2nd single SIGNAL .

For me I find Shunkashuutou real cute on 1st listen as it sounded like a cross dimension between YOU & I LIKE IT . It's pretty much those kinda songs that will put you in a really good mood & tend to get you humming along to the melody & beats as you listen to Shunkashuutou .

White X'mas is the final / 8th single that made the cut & in this case , you have an album version & it's the guys's 1st Christmas holiday inspired ballad & it's their 2nd ballad released as a single after their 3rd one Bokura no Machi de except in this case , it's their 1st commerical ballad to feature co lead vocalist Akanishi on vocals .

Honestly , I really thought that the guys was going to re-record or maybe even re-arranged the song after I saw the words (Album Version) on the album tracklist but it turns out it's exactly the same thing as what you will hear in the single version of White X'mas .

The only difference's after the guys delivered the 2nd chorus of the song , there's an apperance of Tanaka's rapping . As such I was a bit disappointed cos here I was assuming that it might be something different overall but there were only minor adjustments involved .

But other than that , I still love White X'mas . The melody is just beautiful to boost & the tune that accompanied Tanaka's rapping is ain't 1/2 bad either & I hope this will not be the last ballad that the guys will release as a single .

NEIRO's the 2nd last / last song (depending whether you get the limited or regular edition) & this's a very nice ballad .

I love the way that the guys's vocals were able to harmonise really well together . Even though the melody's nothing fantastic to shout about , they more than make up for the lack of it with the harmonisation of their voices .

MOON's only found in the regular edition of the album & this's still 1 of my fave album tracks simply because I never expected that KAT-TUN's able to do an fusion mix of Enka meets hard rock no. .

I was frankly shocked when I 1st heard MOON because the opening of the song caught me by surprise & I was thinking would it be the 1st full Enka tune that they have done ? but HELL NO .

After the 1st 20 secs of MOON is out of the way , the song made a 360 degree U-turn & in comes an angsty mean mix of hard rock which brings you in mind of their previous hard rock tunes such as HELL , NO , Ai no Command & LIPS .

I still think that it's something that Evanescence might have delivered except in this case , KAT-TUN has no problems executing this & I think it's fantastic to close the album with such a big bang , literally .

Ok I have finished reviewing the singles & the new group album offerings , it's time for me to talk about the solos , 1 by 1 .

1) WHITE WORLD (Nakamaru Yuichi's Solo) - this's an amazing ballad that Nakamaru delivered . After key of life & SMACK , I really thought that he might sing another uptempo tune but turns out in this case , it's a ballad which's a nice change .

Initally I was a bit disappointed that he didn't had a hand in writing WHITE WORLD cos I was really looking forward to another solo that he might write but not anymore .

This somewhat Christmas inspired tune is sad & somewhat nostaglic , you definitely can tell it from the melody & the lyrics & I wouldn't be surprised if you can call it a distinct cousin of White X'mas .

Nakamaru has once again proven to me on why I really love his solos a great deal & this time round , it's no exception in the form of WHITE WORLD .

Lyrics , music & arrangement : Katsuhiko Sugiyama

2) care (Akanishi Jin's Solo) - the only 'old' song to make the cut in Break the Records -by you & for you-, it's the 2nd co lead vocalist Akanishi's solo which's titled care .

A fan favourite , care was performed by Akanishi pretty much a lot of times before the group's official music 3 years ago .

Frankly I was surprised when I 1st heard care & I treated the song as a totally new no. on my end since I only just got onboard their music last April / May .

It's a very simple & sweet guitar pop/rock no. which's a sharp contrast to the otherwise Americanised & dirty gritting sounding LOVEJUICE & I like this type of music , there's no way you will not like it at all .

The only grouse for care's that I find it a bit too short . He should have extended it by a few secs or so . But other than that , he definitely should sing more of such tunes in future as I think it fits his voice well & kudos to him for having a hand in cowriting it .

Lyrics :Akanishi Jin / Kazunari Ohno 
Music & Arrangement :Noriyoshi Matsushita

3) 1582 (Kamenashi Kazuya's Solo)

The only song be it group album offering or solo to have no.s as a song title , it's the 1st co lead vocalist Kame's no. , 1582 .

I honestly wasn't expecting much at all before I heard 1582 . However all that changed when I found out that the person who wrote it was the very same person who wrote for Kame's w/o notice ?? as I was real worried on whether will 1582 sound like a w/o notice ?? part 2 .

As much as I find w/o notice ?? cute & amusing , I really wanted him to release another serious tune but thankfully , after I finally got the chance to listen to 1582 , I throw every assumption I made outta the window .

He's probably the last person that I expect to try out a mean mix of experimental futuristic fusion blend of electro meets trance/rock tune with a violin thrown in for good measure & as a result , you get a really great catchy somewhat angsty tune which I absolutely adore .

The only turn off about 1582's after he sang the 1st chorus of the song is some weird panting/sucking sounds which really freaked me out but other than that , 1582's fantastic & it's such a great listen . It's hard for you NOT to get hooked onto it as each listen goes by .

It frankly still doesn't match up to the brilliance that's of Kizuna but 1582's more or less on par , alongside with someday for somebody which's great & Kame more or less has proven to me on (again) why he deserved to serve as co-lead vocalist in the group alongside with Akanishi .

Music :M.Y 
Arrangement : Yuichi Hamatsu

4) PIERROT (Tanaka Koki's Solo)

This's honestly my least fave solo on Break the Records -by you & for you- because there's just something about Tanaka's solos that I either like or dislike .

I was actually laughing when I finally had the chance to listen to PIERROT & the fact that my younger sister said that it sounded like a Pokemon or a Beyblade tune's not helping matters either -_- .

But in due respect , I definitely prefer this charged up explosive hard rock tune as compared to PARASITE which still freaks me out cos of the lyrical content & it's commendable on Tanaka's part in writing & co-composing PIERROT .

I don't think he has sang a solo ballad before . I think he should do that in the future because I think he has a good voice to carry out a ballad on his own .

Lyrics : JOKER
Music : Atsushi / JOKER
Arrangement : Atsushi

5) Hana no Mau Machi [The Town Of Dancing Flowers] (Ueda Tatsuya's Solo)

Ahh such a nice mid tempo piano influenced no. delivered by Ueda .

According to a broadcast of radio show R-ONE KAT-TUN that's hosted by him & Nakamaru , Ueda said he wrote & composed his new solo during the period of his 1st stageplay Romeo & Juliet .

Hence , the content of the song fits the world of his debut stageplay .

Ueda's solos are something that I always look forward to because I consider him as the most musicially gifted in KAT-TUN .

After last year's superb Ai no Hana , it's nice that he delivered another Romeo & Juliet inspired no. in the form of Hana no Mau Machi . Mood wise , it's more cheerier & carefree as compared to the latter which's awesome .

I'm still hoping for the day that he can put Love in snow on a CD as that's a song that's long overdue to be given the CD studio treatment .

Lyrics & Music : Ueda Tatsuya 
Arrangement :kao

6) WIND (Taguchi Junnosuke's Solo)

The very 1st solo that Taguchi had a hand in writing & co-composing , is titled WIND .

I wasn't really expecting that much for Taguchi's case since this's the 1st time that he did everything hands on except for arrangement so I went with an open mind for his .

I like the opening which's a nice piano introduction & after that's out of the way , WIND became a very chilled out lounge inspired tune & this's probably something that Ken Hirai might do .

Not that it's a bad thing but I can sense that Taguchi had a fun time singing WIND & considering that it's his 1st solo composition , it's commendable .

Then again his previous solos efforts like Natsu no Basho & SAMURAI☆LOVE☆ATTACK are also equally worth listening out to .

Lyrics : Taguchi Junnosuke 
Music : Taguchi Junnosuke / Gin Kitagawa
Arrangement : Gin Kitagawa

===

Wow what can I say ? after last year's superb album offering KAT-TUN III -QUEEN OF PIRATES- , I really thought that KAT-TUN wasn't able to live up to music exceptations with Break the Records -by you & for you-but they have proven me wrong once again with this solid new offering of theirs .

Compared to KAT-TUN III -QUEEN OF PIRATES- , you definitely can tell that their new album's more experimental in that they dabbed in music genres that they have never done before as compared to their previous studio offering .

Music genres like electro , trance & even enka were dotted across the songs in Break the Records -by you & for you-. Combined that with their signature rock sound , it takes you on an extremely wonderful music joy ride from the start to the end .

All the solos are very well defined in their own respective right which shows to me that they know what their vocals strengths & weaknesses are & how they work them for / against their advantage .

Unlike cartoon KAT-TUN II you where the major drawbacks that the album suffered were inconsistency & shaky music direction route/grounds , you don't find them in the guys's latest album .

It's a good thing in a way that I decided to keep exceptations for Break the Records -by you & for you-as low as possible before its commencement release date this Wed because I know for a fact that KAT-TUN -QUEEN OF PIRATES- was so amazing that it probably be hard to top things or even sound more superior than the other .

But I'm really glad to say that Break the Records -by you & for you-has really exceeded my music exceptations & this has immediately gone straight to the top of my fave album of the 1 1/2 of 2009 , Johnny's wise .

It's great to see that as each album goes by , KAT-TUN's able to try out different music genres & also in the process experiment as time goes by , be it whether the final ending product's bad or good & also the overall production for Break the Records -by you & for you-is more sleeked & polished .

Do yourself a favor & buy a copy or 2 of Break the Records -by you & for you-, you'll be glad that you did so . You wouldn't regret listening to this latest album offering of 1 of Japan's most talented Johnny's boybands .

If experimentation & rock meets other music genres songs are your thing , then Break the Records -by you & for you- will be the album for you to listen to .
