General Information:

LAREINE’s fourth and final full studio album, released in 2004.

It compiles 11 tracks that released throughout 2003 and 2004, and adds 5 new ones, 2 of which are instrumental.

The main album, or the “Never Disc” contains 15 songs.

There’s also two bonus discs, first of all, there’s the “Main Disc -CD-“, which is a misleading title, as I don’t consider it the “main album”. It contains just one track, a new song, an almost-10-minute long epic which bears the same title as the album, “Never Cage”.

Then, there’s also a DVD, called the “Main Disc -DVD-“, which contains a music video of the 10-minute long song, and a some bonus making-of footage. The song used in the background of that making-of footage is “白蝶” (Hakuchou), which released as a single in 2003.

Back to the “Never Disc”, or the actual album, here is a list of what tracks were taken from which earlier releases, in chronological order of the original releases:
Track 13, “Scarlet Majesty” was taken from the single “Scarlet Majesty“.
Track 04, “gipsy” was taken from the mini-album “MAJESTY“.
Track 06, “SOLITUDE” was taken from the single “with Present Letos“.
Track 05, “Knight & Priest”, track 08, “未完成組曲” (Mikansei kumikyoku) and track 11, “Legato” were taken from the mini-album “KNIGHT“.
Track 12, “眠れぬ夜は真珠” (Nemureru koi wa shinju) was taken from the sampler CD “眠れぬ夜は真珠” (Nemureru koi wa shinju).
Track 07, “蒼の巣窟” (Ao no soukutsu) and track 14, “Partir” were taken from the mini-album “PRINCESS“.
Track 03, “月の狩人” (Tsuki no karyuto) was taken from the sampler CD “月の狩人” (Tsuki no karyuto).
Track 10, “Trailer” was taken from the single “Trailer“.

Track 01, “Never Cage -prologue-” is a short instrumental intro, and track 09, “Dear White” is an instrumental, solo piano interlude.
Track 02, “愛されていた日々-Ever Love-” (Aisarete ita hibi -Ever Love-), and track 15, “To be continued.” are what I’d call the only two “real, new songs” on this album.

Type: PV DVD
Release Date: 2004/11/23

Very rare limited edition. Contains just a DVD: “Main Disc -DVD-” (ARLC-030) with a short prologue, a music video for “Never Cage” (the song) called “Image of Never Cage”, and making-of footage set to the song “白蝶” (Hakuchou).

This release is actually part of the videography, not the discography, as it’s just video, but I included it in this page because it’s so closely knitted with the two others.
