'__' I have basically only heard their stuff from Furi Kuri as well, but I also like the Pillows. Hehe, I am obsessed with Subhuman. I can always get more songs from my Pillows dtictionary though (AKA: Goldfish-kun). I also like the OP and ED, Ride on Shooting Star and Little Busters tongue.gif

See avatar and signature.

The Pillows are definately one of the most influential bands of Japan for such artists like Mr. Children, GLAY, STRAIGHTENER, BUMP OF CHICKEN, GOING UNDER GROUND, and more.

They've worked very hard from their first album, Pantomime, in 1990 to Thank You My Twilight in 2002, making it very enjoyable to listen to. They've experimented with many types of genre, most noticeably with jazz [Living Field and Kool Spice and some of White Incarnation], progressive rock, and a little reggae.

The Pillows deserve my respect, but unfortunately their recent stuff just doesn't appeal to myself and other serious fans. Penalty Life was where it started, showing signs of weariness; GOOD DREAMS brought that weariness into mediocrity; and their most recent album, MY FOOT, was a mix of the two, also showcasing Sawao Yamanka's [Vocal, harmony guitar] age with his voice. Combining the three weak albums would make one pretty decent album overall.

The Pillows will always be remembered for their great work, and will be recognized worldwide.

Newcomer alert!

The Pillows is my favorite band. Ever.

I love playing Hybrid Rainbow and Ride on Shooting Star. Beautiful Morning With You is also fun to play.

I recorded a cover of Ride on Shooting Star, anyone wanna hear it?

The tab on Pirouzu.net sounds wrong. :/

We'd love to hear your cover.
