L’Arc~en~Ciel 2nd Album – Tierra

It’s been a long delay post because I’ve been obsessed with Cillian Murphy throughout March…But now, let’s get back on track 😉

Tierra was released at July 14, 1994. The songs in this album are considered to easier than Dune. One of them even become a national anthem of all Cielers, I mean everyone knows this song. It has more variation and not as dark as before.

There were 4PVs for this album, but I only knew the release date of Blurry Eyes. It came out at October 21, 1994. The other videos were Nemuri ni Yosete, Kaze no Yukue and White Feather.

As I said before…I love all 11 albums that had been released by Laruku, I can hear changes in their music.

Now, let’s talk about the songs, one by one…and just like what I’ve done when writing Dune, I’m going to write my favorite part of each song.

In the Air

Lyric and Music by Hyde.
I really like this song. I never get tired of it. I find this song as a fun song. Tetsu’s bass is so unforgettable

My favorite line from this song:

空 へ 落ちて行く
Sokonashi no sora e to fukaku ochiteyuku
そして 雲 を 君 は 掴む … 掴む

All Dead

Lyric and Music by Hyde.
This song is a bit dark and probably not everyone’s favorite. But I really like that long solo guitar by Ken. I don’t like the part when Hyde seems more like shouting rather than singing.

My favorite line from this song:

Jiyuu o ubotta anata ni
Sukoshi mo kienai itami wa
Itsumade tsuzuku no ka oshiete
Sukoshi mo kienai satsui ni
Nayamasareteiru to tsutaete

Blame

Lyric by Hyde, Music by Tetsu.
I like this song better than the previous song. The drum beat is so fun. The sound of the piano makes this song more interesting.

My favorite line from this song:

君 を 今 も 思う 日々 が
僕 は 全て datoshitemo
いつか 時 が 膝 を 抱えた
僕 を 連れて 行く よ

Wind of Gold

Lyric by Hyde, Music by Hyde. (?)
This song is very slow but it has a really ear-catching beat, I remembered the 1st time I heard the song…it stuck in my head for weeks.

My favorite line from this song:

Tooku Nagarete yuku, Nagai anata no kage
Nakinakara itsumademo mitsumeteita
Tokei o hayametai, anata ni aerumade
Taiyou yo mawaru sukoshi demo hayaku

Blurry Eyes

Lyric by Hyde, Music by Tetsu.(?)
This song is legendary!! The intro is so well-known. Everyone who loves Japanese music, especially J-Rock usually knows about this song. I think this is the most famous song they’ve ever made in the past (the girly era). I remember every line of this song.

My favorite line from this song:

Meguri kuru toki ni
Taisetsu no hito wa mou
Furimuita sono hitomi ni
Chiisana tameiki

Inner Core

Lyric by Hyde, Music by Sakura.
This song is a bit like All Dead, an unusual song. I couldn’t get it the 1st time I heard it, but after few times of listening it I kinda get the feeling of this song. This song also has long solo guitar.

My favorite line from this song:

Karui memai no ato totoyou karada ni
Kioku no kozui ga chokusetsu nagarekomu

Nemuri ni Yosete

Lyric by Hyde, Music by Ken.
Nemuri ni Yosete means pushing closer to sleep. The PV of this song is sooo girly, with soft colored and Hyde acting so pretty (makes people wondering whether he is a he or she). Sometimes I really enjoy this song but sometimes I find this song a bit boring…it really depend on my mood.

My favorite line from this song:

Tomei na yume ni nemuru
Kowarete shimatta watashi wa yume ni nemuru
Itami ga waragu made o okosanaide

Kaze no Yukue

Lyric by Hyde, Music by Ken
Kaze no Yukue means the wind whereabouts. Just like Nemuri ni Yosete, I sometimes like this song but sometimes I find this song a bit boring. The PV for this song is sooo boring, I rarely watch it.

My favorite line from this song:

Ikanaide soba ni ite hoshii
Furueta koe ga kono karada ni hibiite
Iki ga desanakunaru
Sono namida ni owari wa hai no

Hitomi no Utsurumono

Lyric by Hyde, Music by Ken.
Hitomi no Utsuru Mono means the reflection in my eyes. Although this song is very slow…but I really like it, it reminds me of Ushinau Nagame (Dune). The slowness of this song touches my heart deeply. Hyde’s voice is so beautiful. It’s so difficult to find favorite lines from this song

My favorite line from this song:

Kono watashi no hitomi no naka
Aki no iro somerareta
Tori to sora to anata ga iru
Akai kareha to anata ga

White Feather

Lyric by Hyde, Music by Ken.
I can easily say that this is the best song of this album. I don’t really like Sakura but I have to admit that this song shows his true talent in drumming (Tho I still find Yuki as a much better drummer than him). This song is so unpredictable, slow and then upbeat and then full of instrument. It’s a perfect song. I’m so glad that I finally hear it live under the hand of Yukihiro (at 15th L’Anniversary concert)

My favorite line from this song:

Will you please tell me the way to the sky
Maiagaru kaze no naka
Will you please show me the way to the sky
Tozashita mama, hane wa hirogarazu ochite yuku

Here are 30seconds preview of the album:
