All through the album, the musicianship of B’z seems to have go back home of sorts although based on hard rock as often seen in albums from 2000s onward. There are several songs that have tastes of popular songs in Showa Era, on the album. They must be proofs of reconstruction of their native favorites. Moreover, for example“Dead End”has some resemblance to tunes in Thousand Wave the first album of Matsumoto Takahiro: a guitarist of B'z, released before B’z made debut.

Though it is mentioned above as based on hard rock, the songs are rich in variety. Probably you would find yourself feel the Japanese band's atmosphere. Foreign players were selected on base and drums and these songs might also be American popular songs in point of groove. So the songs are maybe unable to be generally accepted in Japan.

However, C'mon surely reflects their realities and identities of B'z which consists of two Japanese men of about fifty years old in 2011. You are going to find it in listening to their songs or in reading the lyrics. And individually, this album is reckoned to be sprout of changing into next B'z.
