Man, that picture above is about the happiest I've ever seen B'z. Unfortunately, I've never been to one of their concerts (apparently the guys slipped in and out of Toronto a couple of years ago for a small gig) so perhaps at least one of them has cracked a smile but usually they've impressed me as being one of the more serious-looking Japanese bands out there. The look on vocalist Koshi Inaba's （稲葉浩志）face always told me, "Got me a job to do and I'm gonna rock it out of the bloody park!"
A little over a couple of years ago, I wrote the article on the song, "Bad Communication" which often acted as my really loud wake-up tune in my first several months in Gunma Prefecture. And it was quite the intro to B'z. Hearing that and seeing the Rie Miyazawa commercial that was attached to it had me flying out of my futon and down for breakfast. Anyways, I decided I wanted to follow up and follow through on that article by expanding things to the whole mini-album of the same title.
