Amazing band 
no, to tell the truth, they're one of the best. So sad that the young generation began to forget the founding fathers, the real masters of classic rock music.
But even this way, they are still rock our hearts and gathering a crowd of fans at concerts at huge stadium.
While i just signed up for this site, i only recently discovered the Alfee and as for the question on what Sakazaki sings lead on, i'm pretty sure he sings lead on You are the Rock (check it out on YouTube) great song! I actually discovered the Alfee through Sakazaki's side project with Kazuhiko Kato called Kazukoh.
I've tried binging, googling etc but it's hard to find much info in english about the Alfee, like who sings what, who writes what, if Takamizawa has gone insane etc. I don't read japansese, but it looks from the liner notes from Vol VI that Takamizawa wites the music, but do all members write lyrics?

Hi guys~ I only recently discovered this band but I think I'm liking them a lot...:-) I have a question though....I haven't listened to many songs but so far I've found songs where Takamizawa sings and some songs were Sakurai sings....are there any songs were Sakazaki sings as well? I can't really recognize their voices yet so I'm only basing those things on the PVs and videos I've watched....If there are any with him singing....give me song titles...:D
THE ALFEE, "a popular Japanese musical group": 5,679 listeners -- Dir en grey, "a Japanese alternative metal band": 169,617 listeners. There's some irony for you. Not to compare the bands or anything... I personally prefer THE ALFEE by a longshot.
Well...The Alfee plays a lot of music styles...from love ballads to heavy metal or prog rock...so if "speedy" means up-tempo songs, well they play a lot of "feel good" songs.
As I always say...this bands deserves to be more known outside Japan....it's a shama that a lot japanese music listener only bother to hear crappy anime music
No #two on oricon with ''Lifetime Love''(for her first week no, but yes, i think he was really on #1 for one day.My first song of The Alfee was Lifetime Love after i heart Love never dies and 恋人達のペイヴメント. But in japan (in a so big japanese cd stores ) for a unbelievable luck i see Emotional love songs and i buy the cd...Great cd and great band !
