Kirari (Sparkling in English) is Dazzle Vision's fifth album and only full-feature album, containing 12 songs. Kirari was released on June 3, 2011 by Human Noise records. To date, Kirari is Dazzle Vision's most successful album, topping HMV's charts.[1]

Style[edit]

While Dazzle Vision is well known for creating a new mood and style for each album, Kirari is said to be all these influences put into a blender.[2] The album opens up with a gut wrenching power ballad with screamo undertones and heavy riffs not typical of the usual power ballad. From there it bounces between an Alternative Metal and a Thrash Metal vibe.[3] The album also showcases the softer side of Dazzle Vision much like their previous album Crystal Children, clashing pop and rock into tunes such as Continue and Divided.[4]

Music videos[edit]

Dazzle Vision made two music videos for this album. The two songs were Like I'm Not Real and Kirari,[5] both different in setup and style. The music videos were produced by Human Noise Records. Kirari was released on April 14, 2011, the same day that the single was released on iTunes Japan. Like I'm Not Real was released on June 3, 2011, as promotion for the album itself. The other two singles, Continue and Reason, were not made into music videos because of the band's tour with Evanescence during their Japan Tour in 2012.[6]
