An album about the grudges of various Touhou girls, with some of the darkest sounding tracks in the track catalog. But there are still a couple of very bright moments.

Ranko (from ButaBest 2): Dark! Heavy! Grudge! That’s the image, but there are also some surprisingly bright tunes. “Sora no Aru Basho” is one of them. “Anata to Watashi” has a grudge-rock feeling.
It’s not in the ButaBest2, but I think I wrote good lyrics for “Deadman’s Lovely Life”.
The images on the CD jacket and the disc are an explosion of subculture, I really like them.
