Loudness is a Japanese metal band formed in 1981 by guitarist Akira Takasaki and drummer Munetaka Higuchi.They were the first Japanese heavy metal act signed to a major label in the United States, releasing twenty-five studio albums (five in America) by the end of 2012 and reaching the Billboard Top 100 in their moment of maximum international popularity, as well as charting on Oricon dozens of times.Despite numerous changes in their roster, the band continued their activities throughout the 90s, finally reuniting the original line-up in 2001. On November 30, 2008 original drummer Munetaka Higuchi died from liver cancer at a hospital in Osaka at age 49. He was replaced with Masayuki Suzuki.The band has announced that their 26th studio album titled The Sun Will Rise Again will be released on the 4th of June 2014. Loudness played a song from the album called "Immortality" on the 2014 Monsters of Rock cruise.
Nippon Columbia and LOUDNESS continue with their campaign celebrating the band albums in its 30th Anniversary.Now, few days ago at the very end of 2018 it was time for this "Jealousy 30th Anniversary [3-Disc LTD Edition Box Remastered]".This 2CD/DVD release includes a bonus disc featuring previously unreleased material."Jealousy'' was the last record of the original Loudness line-up back in 1988 before they reunited in that form in 2001 and released ''Spiritual Canoe''.The mini-album only consists of six tracks with a running time of twenty-eight minutes but the record is considered a regular release by the band.With "Jealousy'' started Loudness' attempt to breach the American metal market. It was released only in Japan, to taste the waters.And you can tell this is pretty Americanized hard rock, with a Californian feeling all over akin Dokken circa 'Tooth and Nail' meets Van Halen. A couple of the tracks are power ballads, also in the US vein of the second half of the '80.As usual, these Japanese Loudness 30th Anniversary releases comes with a bonus disc featuring pre-production, previously unreleased demos from the recording sessions / creative process. Some are previously unreleased, some recorded / finished later, and some evolved into future Loudness' songs.The sound quality is really good, Loudness never recorded cheap pre-production demos.Purists of Loudness' very early era hate "Jealousy'', for me, a fan of melodic hard rock from all times, this is one of the best Loudness albums. It's purely American circa 1988; glammy Californian riffs from VH alumni Akira Takasaki, flashy solos, catchy choruses and a polished production sound.Contains newly remastered tracks in "JEALOUSY," ones without Bass, demo track and more. Comes with a bonus DVD featuring live performance at Himeji Castle aired on TV in 1988 and newly taken interview with Minoru Niihara (subject to change). Also includes a special booklet with rare photos and reprinted tour pamphlet of "JAPAN TOUR'88."
