This is another album by the band Gesu No Kiwami Otome, titled Daruma Ringo, or Tamaki Apples in English. Released in May of this year, it is another well done album that has a fair share of diverse musical genres included. While 両成敗「Battle Race」, was slightly more fast paced and energetic with its songs comparatively, that is not to say that that this album lacks in the energy department, far from it, lets just say that for the most part Daruma Ringo is slightly more laid back in approach. Though with that said, the first song シアワセ林檎 「Shiawase Apples」, while not quick or loud as some more rock themed songs, it still has a great sound, energy and tempo to it, the song finds itself on repeat more often than not. The second track 影ソング 「Shadow Song」, while slightly slower than Shiawase Apples, and has a more deliberate sound and progression to it is on repeat almost as often .
The entire tracklist is something that can be repeated throughout the day, and nothing would be skipped. Personally this album is something special, and if you have heard anything from this band in the past, then this newest addition is well worth the purchase. If you are wary of spending upwards of $30.00 for an import album, it is available digitally on Amazon for under $10.00. If you are new to this band, then what I would recommend checking out their Youtube channel which I will list at the bottom, to see if this music you be interested in. This album once again shows their love for the music they make, and the different genres and sounds that they include all seemingly have a proper place in the tracklist, without making any of the tracks feel out of place or pointless.
If nothing else, this band deserves at least a cursory listen to, even if you have little to no knowledge of the language being spoken, music is one of the arts that, as corny as it sounds transcends such boundries. Truly this album is another feather in their cap, and they should all be proud of what they had a hand in creating. Thank you for taking the time to read this, and hope you enjoy this album; also if you have any suggestions please, leave them in the comments below.

This album, by Gesu No Kiwami Otome, Ryōseibai released in 2016 by Warner Music Japan, is one of the best albums I have listened to this year. The sheer amount of musical variety is really good. Ranging from jazzy, poppy, R&B, and quiet somber music that shows their musical talents and is enjoyable from beginning to end. While the energy of the music changes, there is a nice flow to how the energy progresses on the album that makes sense as you listen to it in order.
The entire album, while being enjoyable from beginning to end overall, there are obviously so stand out tracks that end up on repeat for a while when they come up on the track list. ロマンスがありあまる (Romansu ga arimasu) is one of the best songs on the album that is constantly on loop. 両成敗でいいじゃない (Ryōseibai de ii janai) and 私以外私じゃないの (Watashi igai watashi janai no) are two more standout songs in this album, that are great examples of the kind of sound that this band creates, and the energy they exude are infectious. They are also songs that if you have not listened to them before that would give you the greatest idea as to what kind of band that they are. You can easily listen to them on their official youtube channel.
The only band that I can personally compare them to would have to be Indigo-La-End, the only reason behind that is that the lead singer for both bands is the same, and even with that being the case, they are distinct enough that there is not a lot of overlap with their sound. If you are looking for a new Japanese band to listen to then give the Gesu no kiwami otome album Ryōseibai a shot.
