For Baistophe’s first venturing into the world of Japanese Pop-Rock, let’s have a look back at the solo career of Gackt. Half-pop idol half-rock star, Gackt gained fame from his early years as the singer of the Visual Kei band Malice Mizer. There he proved being not only a great singer, but also a finemulti-instrumentalist and composer. After leaving Mizer in 1999, he initiated a solo career which was closely followed by many fans since the very beginning.
Hiding both private life and musical projects behind a veil of mystery, Gackt is a hugely popular figure in Japanese culture. He was committed as an actor in several features, as a main character in a Final Fantasy episode, wrote his autobiography along with poetry, and even provided his voice for the vocal synthesis "Vocaloid" series. Yet this CD explores what he does best : writing songs that can get tremendous success and radio airplay, but adding significant production values. His shows, all the best being available on DVD, are also nothing short of spectacular.
