Hurry Xmas indeed! Christmas with L'Arc~en~Ciel is over a month early, but I'm not complaining. "Hurry Xmas" is fast-paced and full of holiday spirit. It's a nice blend of orchestra, Swing, and Jazz. Very different from their other works this year.

The cover is pretty neat; my best guess is that it's a rendition of the journey of Odysseus and his encounter with the Sirens. I don't know what that "thing" in the water is though (a crystal bra perhaps?)... Anyway, I like the overall mood in "DAYBREAK'S BELL"; it's semi-dark with a hint of ethereal quality. However, it's not as memorable as their last single "MY HEART DRAWS A DREAM". The chorus is by far the most 'alluring' part of the song; the rest is just okay. "夏の憂鬱[SEA IN BLOOD 2007]" heads toward a more heavy metal approach, but with less screaming. Screaming's really not my thing, but they don't do it that often which is fine with me.
