Each week (or a period of time) this section will have a different playlist, each featuring tracks from a different Back-on album/single. There will also be one song available for downloading in mp3 format as well. The aim of this section is to provide a ‘one-stop’ place for fans and potential fans to listen to Back-on’s work – ‘try before you buy‘. If you want to support Back-on, buy their albums and attend their concerts! They are generally priced around the ¥ 1600 range (singles are cheaper), which at current exchange rates is about £ 7.00 or $ 14.00. I will try and compile a list of online shops that you can check for the best deals/rates. Quick examples are Play-Asia.com (e.g. I bought New World from there for about £10.00 including shipping) Yesasia.com, CDJapan, HMV Japan and Amazon.co.jp.
For the sixth series (May 28th 2008) , we are continuing to ‘showcase’ almost all of Back-on‘s recent releases on the radio and have just added (a shout out to EJ here!) their brand new single Sands of time to the play-list!
We were lucky enough to listen to the single before receiving the CD in the post today, due to some very kind BOO members, particularly Ichiban (one of our forum moderators!) so a big thank you to ichi!
It would be great to find out what everyone thinks of the brand new single! Back-on have experimented a little for this single, and for fans of Teeda, this is probably one of the best presents ever as Teeda is clearly the main ‘man’ behind the songs in Sands of time!
- Sands of time
- message for kidz
The track-listing is listed above, where message for kidz is probably the most ‘summer’y song of the 3. Seriously, do let us know your thoughts!
p/s: I’m leaving the cover art of HERO below because I really like it! :)
To listen to the entire album, scroll down to the bottom of the page before the comments.
Welcome to the 9th series of our Downloads! Our last update was in April 2008 (and the one prior to that in Jan 2008) so it has been a *very* long time since then. For this download series – December 20th 2009 – we will be featuring the top 2 songs from our poll (which had over 1,400 votes) which are RAIN (31%) and ZERO (27%) – two of BACK-ON‘s older songs.
The former is from their New World album and the latter from the flower single. RAIN is a seriously chilled song, whilst ZERO is a bit more rock but just as feel good. Both feature some classic TEEDA rapping and Kenji03 vocals. You can check out the Discography for more information! :)
All songs are (as usual) very high quality files, ripped at 320kbps using Exact Audio Copy (from the flower single and the New World mini album.
RAIN (8.17 MB, Zipped)
ZERO (6.61 MB, Zipped)
A big thanks if you voted in last month’s poll. You can now vote for your most-wanted track for the next update! To celebrate the forthcoming release of the two new singles, we’ve tried to include a selection from almost all of Back-on’s singles and mini-albums! :)
