    If it is against the rules to make a forum about bands, then there are way 2 many frikin rules on this forum site! Here is a rule I think is gay...NO versus forums. WTF! This site is called Red versus blue! If that is against the rules, that is gay. Wat would be even gayer is if a moderator deleted this comment. Wich he most likly will.

    The Pillows are okay for a Japanese band. I personally don't like music in other languages because I like t ohear the lyrics, but I like thier song 'Ride on Shooting Star'.

    Highlight of the summer.
    WARNING: May contain e-bragging.

    But really, I love the pillows. I have 4, and soon 5, of their albums. What irritates me is that a lot of people that I know that know them only like them "cuz dey did the muzic to FLCL!" Though FLCL is how I discovered their music, the music is actually stood out, and I liked the music more than the show. I mean, Ride on Shooting Star is a good song, but their are soooo many of thier non-FLCL music that is better. I think my point is is that they are a band that deserve more recognition than for providing music for the soundtrack to FLCL.

    The Pillows are great, and My Foot is an excellent CD. I love Gazelle City most of all.

    To all those who first heard them from FLCL, I highly urge you to download their non-FLCL albums. They have so much more range and depth.

    I love The Pillows. Yes, I bought the FLCL album and that was it, but... I love it. They're great for listening to after school or volleyball practice. I've been trying to buy a CD that wasn't FLCL, but I can't find any.

    Also there is play-asia.com, which has "Please Mr. Lostman," the album where their modern sound and style originated from. It is a must for a pillows fan. My copy should be coming in any day now...

    IT CAME!. Please Mr. Lostman is such a great album, and, as I said before, a must-own title for any pillows fan.

    I currently have 7 of the pillows' albums and I love every one of them. They are a great band and I really wish that I had gone to their show in NYC. I tried to get tickets but they were sold out like after the first two or three days. I got every one of my roommates into the pillows and I started a pillows fangroup on facebook. If any of you are on Facebook, you should join this group. It's called "The Pillows Fangroup: I like you busters!"

    Even though FuriKuri was definitely their claim to fame (wow, that phrase took longer to type out than I wanted it to), I definitely agree with you. I'm normally careful to put the word "rock" on any Japanese band but The Pillows really just take their guitars and run with it.
    The catchy riffs are a plus, too. I don't know why, but despite not being a groundbreaking band there's something about their playing that they really make their own. It'd be just one second into a song and I already know it's The Pillows.

    I really love their older music. Though their alternative style is still present in their modern music, it still isnt as much as it used to. One thing they still have and do well (and also one of my absolute favorite things about them) are their "fills." Im assuming you all know what "fills" are?
