Let's talk about this song.
"How to Eat Life", as I don't speak Japanese (sorry), is my favorite Eve song. Period. Perhaps it's because it's a, well, "new Eve song", and I'm just getting overhyped about this song, but everything about this song is so...good.
The original version on his Smile album was a perhaps mediocre song, with bland risers and an overcrowding snare that made for a rather mess of a song. However, the MV version is simply hooolyyy garbage, WOW. Multiple changes just turn this song into a masterpiece to listen to, and I love it so much.
Let's get on with the actual review.
all other Eve MV's, there is no defined "story", there is only a sequence of intriguing events, and the meaning is for you to decipher for yourself. There is a bunch of battling and sh*t however, which...don't really add much, it's just cool.
On another note, this MV was created and animated by ONE PERSON. And it looks AMAZING. HOO BOY. I seriously recommend checking out Mariyasu. Phenomenal job.
The sound--mm, if I wasn't clear before, I love this song. Again, the Spotify version isn't something I'd really vibe to, but THIS? Downloaded as an MP3, saved as a local file, added to every playlist. The cutoff at the beginning, the choice to go for a silence instead of a riser, the one-hit snare before the drop, and the choice for clean-cut hi-hats instead of the overwhelming snare elevate this song SO MUCH.
Skipping character. Not much to say. He seems pretty cool though. Kicked an elevator.
Overall, this MV was a masterpiece to watch and listen to. I highly recommend anyone to check it out right now.
