Preview of the 20th Anniversary Tribute Album!



It's almost here! The 20th Anniversary Tribute will be officially out January 29th, 2014! Here is the much anticipated tracklist:

1- “Moonlight Densetsu” - Momoiro Clover Z 
2- “HEART MOVING” - Shoko Nakagawa 
3- “Princess Moon”- Haruka Fukuhara
4- “Otome no Policy” - Etsuko Yakushimaru
5- “La Soldier” - Tommy heavenly6
6- “Ai no Senshi” - Mariko Goto x Abu-chan
7- “Tuxedo Mirage” - Momoiro Clover Z 
8- “Rashiku Ikimasho” - Haruko Momoi 
9- “Sailor Star Song” - Mitsuko Horie 
10-“Kaze mo Sora mo Kitto…” - Makoto Kawamoto
Bonus Track - “Moonlight Densetsu” (French ver.) - Clémentine 

Watch the video posted above to see what it will sound like! Some of these tracks are quite good, upbeat and fun! I specially enjoyed Princess Moon with the bells and cute voice, and Sailor Stars Song with Horie (Sailor Galaxia!) and those bad ass violins -whut whut! Really cool. Others are just plain weird (I'm looking at you Otome no Policy), stripping the tunes from their original feel or way too electronically processed. Still, overall a good CD for us nostalgic fans. Let me know which ones are your favorites in the comments!

Also remember, next February 27th 2014, there will be a live concert that will air on MTV Japan sponsored by SHIDAX and LIVEDAM at the Zepp Tokyo called ~"美少女戦士セーラームーン" THE 20TH ANNIVERSARY MEMORIAL TRIBUTE LIVE!"~. Only a few artists have been confirmed to appear, including MomoClo, Shokodan and Horie, but probably more will be confirmed as the air date comes closer. Still no word on if it will be broadcasted online or not, but I will post links as soon as it is confirmed.

You can still order your copy of the Tribute album on CDJapanIt costs roughly about $30 USD + shipping, but if you like what you hear, you should totally get it. Remember to always support the original releases. Order it before they sell out! After this first look, I'm sure Moonies are really going to want it now. :D If you are lucky enough to live in Japan or if you know somebody who can get you the album at a music shop, depending on which store it is bought from (Tower Records, HMV, Tsutaya, Shinseido, Yodobashi, etc), the CD will include a limited edition sticker exclusive to that store. One design for each senshi! Nice.


And finally, don't forget to check out the Official Album site. They have posted commentaries and profiles of each artists and each track (in Japanese). Plus the site is gorgeously designed, worth it to go check it out just for the images! So pretty! Woot woot! So much going on in the Moonieverse! Hope you guys are enjoying the ride! :D
