There have been a lot of disagreement around my harsh criticism of Girl’s Dead Monster, a frictional band in Angel Beats and the singers, whatherface and LiSA. I am a critic, I have to point out what is good and what its not. This is what a critic does. You don’t have to agree with all my points because everyone have different opinions and tastes in music. This is not an attack on Angel Beats because I enjoy the show and like the story, I just don’t like the way the insert songs are heading.
Even Jun Maeda want to have the high school band feel, it does not work for me. I think he should took more time auditioning and pick out better talent that is not known that can actually sing. If Houkago Tea Time (also a high school band) can pull of a clean performance, why can’t Girl’s Dead Monster? I expect them to be just as good because if they sounded like they are novices, I wouldn’t think they would get many fans. Good talent is what make music sound good, and if you can’t sing, that isn’t good talent. It’s just like watching the first few episodes of American Idol. People think they have good singing talent but when they perform in front of the judge, most of the time, they will get a slap in the face because they sing horribly and have no talent. Same case here… LiSA and whatherface performance was less than impressive and it ruined my overall enjoyment. This is why all these songs are taken off my playlist because I can’t stand anymore of their talentless singing. If they audition to get a recording contract, I’m pretty sure they will get rejected. They got it lucky since they probably got pulled in, but in the real world, I don’t think they will survive with talent like that… It’s reality. Most companies that involve with singing will not hire people who lack talent, so you have to know that.
I’m writing this to respond to people who don’t agree with me. LiSA and marina aren’t horrible, but they just don’t fit the roles they are in by the talent they shown.
