Porno Graffitti: Love, too Death, too

Love, too Death, too is Porno Graffitti’s twenty-sixth single, released on October 8th, 2008. It reached #1 on Oricon and has sold 60 155 copies so far. This is a special review. It is likely that this will be the only single by this artist to be reviewed.

Funky! Don’t let the cover make you think this is heavy metal, Love, too Death, too features a funky Motown-style guitar in the background before introducing a mind-blowing mixture of strings and trumpets. This song is by far Akihito’s best vocal performance ever, and Haruichi’s guitar work is really, really great. By far the most noteworthy of the many qualities this song has is the previously mentioned mix of strings, guitar and trumpets featured in the chorus, which is really stretched and fetches a few extra points for itself. It’s outgoing, incredibly catchy, and perfectly executed. It’s actually too bad that they don’t do more songs like this, because they’re certainly able too.

Good News is… a Christmas song! And it’s not bad at that, either. It’s a pretty happy song with bells, and all sorts of Christmas cliches thrown everywhere. Out of all the songs on this single, this is the weakest song, but it’s still not bad.

Time or Distance is better, featuring The Police-inspired guitar work in the background, and more modern-inspired vocals. The guitar solo was delicious, but too short-lived. Overall, this is the more worthy of the two B-Sides.
