I love heidi. They have beautiful, catchy melodies, beautiful lyrics and lovely instrumentals. The members are also very kind and funny and really down to earth. My favourite visual kei band ever!

Yoshihiko's voice is so so unique and Kiri, Nao, and Kousuke are so pro at their instruments. (and Kiri's so attractive~)

The explosiveness and rhythm is outstanding. Also, ichigo is a great vocalist in my opinion.

I first heard their music in the end credits for Starship Troopers - Invasion movie. It is a track called Another Perfect Day from their album Embrace (2013) which is both thrilling and beautiful and remains my all time favourite BBS album. Every album is different in genre. So far I've heard them do modern jazz, break beat, drum n bass, rap, rock, experimental and even gospel!
One question; WHY am I the first one to add them to this distinguished list? They've been banging out superb music since 1998!

I like their song Another Perfect Day because it's got an interesting sound. I like how I've never heard a band sound like that and they're the first ones I've ever heard sound so cool.
