WOW. UMMM. Lots of thoughts, most of it more massive eye-rolling at Taka. Don’t agree at all that music in the US is more representative of its culture vs Japan. Are you shitting me??? Feldmann was “uncomfortable” when something sounded TOO Japanese so he removed it while recording??? How did the rest of the band feel about this, aside from Taka’s obvious handing over of the reins to John??? Sure, he says they also refused some changes, but, really, that sounds like a canned reply, an auto response. And TORU MATURED A LOT IN THE US??? Wow. The guy had personal style in Japan, WAY before he went to record in the US! Toru’s “become able to answer properly,” and there’s “weight in his responses now”????? So Taka feels Toru only grew by going to the US to record??? Taka says he “can rely on him more now.”??? WTF. Getting bloody tired of his “I think” “I thought” “I could tell”..where’s the “we”??? Isn’t a good producer supposed to find ways to complement and amplify a band’s sound without changing it, or interjecting too much of his own or becoming a glorified fifth member? Is this album going to be OOR, or Taka + his US dreams + Feldman? THE US IS NOT THE BE ALL AND END ALL, TAKA.
Thank you, Ryeon, as always, for translating. Much appreciated.
*editing to add that excellentweaklings pointed out how Taka was talking about Ryota when it came to finally having proper responses, not Toru. Thanks, Jenn! Not that it makes Taka sound any less insulting.

I found this picture the other day and I thought it was really cool so here’s this picture of Kevin with Lou Miceli (from Palisades), Tyler Carter (from Issues), Taka (from One OK Rock), and Ty Acord (from Issues).

Taka talking about Leader-sama, Yokohama Stadium MC:
“The whole band has started Instagram.
Toru is the type, he checks the situation first, acts at last, and still ends up failing. (laughs)
We went to a soba store with everyone, three of us ordered soba, Toru said soba at first too, but then ”Ah no, udon after all!”, later he said these udon were damn shitty.
But since he’s cool that’s OK, riiight?”
