发行公司: MCA Victor [MVCD-34]
专辑风格:Visual Kei/Hard Rock
这是LUNA SEA于1996年在前东家MCA发行的最后一张专辑，是5人历经一年半的心血，果然不负众望的成为了LUNA SEA的首张冠军大碟。
《Style》在LUNA SEA的音乐之路上有着承前启后的元素。比之前几张专辑编曲更加成熟圆润，并且进行了多种风格的尝试，说明LUNA SEA在日本摇滚界已经成为有着自己独特风格的一流乐团。
专辑中的“End Of Sorrow”“Desire”是典型的快歌，强劲的节奏，双吉他完美的结合。绚丽的SUGIZO和沉稳的INORAN，两个风格迥异的吉他手是LUNA SEA的一大特色。而“Forever & Ever”“In Silence”则预示着后来LUNA SEA式的抒情歌，只有RYUICHI纯净清澈的声音才能演绎得如此完美。
Luna Sea (ルナシー) is a pillar of Japanese rock music and one of the most influential early visual kei bands. Even though the group is no longer together, their impact is still felt and their music still highly respected. Luna Sea's members are Ryuichi (vocals), Sugizo (lead guitar, violin), Inoran (rhythm guitar), J (bass), and Shinya (drums).
The group was founded by Inoran and J while they were high school and was called Lunacy. Eventually, Sugizo and Shinya were recruited from a rival band, Ryuichi joined, and the group changed its name to Luna Sea. They played as an indies visual band until they were spotted by hide of X Japan and signed to X Japan's independent record label, Extasy Records. They went major in 1992 with their next album, Image. They took a year long break in 1997 to concentrate on solo projects, then returned to release two more albums before finally disbanding in 2000.
Luna Sea's style and music definitely changed as their career progressed. In their early days they were enthusiastic participants in the early nineties visual kei scene. Most of the band members had long hair, wore makeup and flowing gothic outfits in photo shoots, contributing to a very dreamlike, vampiric image. They toned down the visual look as the years went by until by 2000 they were totally mainstream, Ryuichi especially often having a polished, suit-wearing look. The member who held onto the visual look the longest was Sugizo, often described as narcissistic, dying his hair and being the most flamboyant in photo-shoots and on stage.
As for the music, although they moved towards a less dark and moody style after the release of their 1998 album Shine, the band has a definite signature sound. The thing that is most easily noticeable is Ryuichi's distinctive singing voice, high and sometimes bordering on a little too nasal. He may take some getting used to, but he doesn't lack for skill and his vocals have compelling intensity. Also, the generous use of guitar, especially prominent solos and Sugizo's high, echoing guitar soaring out over the band is a dead giveaway. The bass is less flashy and it usually has a heavy, driving feel on most of the songs. However, when J busts out with a bass solo, it's always insanely catchy and complex.
When it comes to writing credits, it's hard to tell who does what. One most of their albums, they don't list who wrote what song. It's all "Music and Lyrics by Luna Sea." However, the band all shares in the writing. Artists they have collaborated with are Shiver, a visual kei band lost to the mists of time (as far as I know), who they did a song with on Eden and DJ Krush on Lunacy.
Even though Luna Sea was a visionary band and a mainstay of Japanese rock, in 2000 they realized that they had done all they could do together as Luna Sea, so the band split and they all went their separate ways.

跟所有走向成功的乐队一样,一个看似梦幻般的音乐路,突然就出现了分歧,盛极一时的顶峰不想正预示着散伙的命运. 算上这张96年的《STYLE》共计4张,LUNA SEA还有5张其他作品暂缺,不过我已经无法提供了,这个留待其他朋友来补齐吧
