LET IT OUT
Yasashii Aka another ver.
LET IT OUT (FULLMETAL ALCHEMIST ED Ver.) (FMA Edition only)
LET IT OUT (Instrumental)
1. LET IT OUT
Miho’s 2nd A-side brings forth another ballad and LET IT OUT is clearly the ending for FULLMETAL ALCHEMIST amd oddly it doesn’t sound like ending material at all, especially for this anime series. Then again Nana Kitade’s “Kesenai Tsumi” doesn’t fill that bill neither. It is my first Miho song so I can’t really comment whether it’s better than her previous songs or not, but what I’m hearing now is very nice and I can see her getting popular pretty quickly.
2. Yasashii Aka -another version-
Basically a rearrangement of her 3rd single of the same name, Yasashii Aka on this single sounds oddly like something Kaori Mochida would’ve released as it sounds rather calm and soothing. I’m also paying attention more to her vocals which are quite nice and strong…maybe a little like a mix of Mika and ayaka perhaps?
I’m guessing it’s a tribute to the late Michael Jackson, Miho decided to cover BEN (which was already covered by Stephanie 2 years ago). Miho’s version actually sucks when compared to Stephanie’s actually. Miho’s vocals are a bit on the higher register and well, her voice doesn’t has the same force as the former had. The arrangement is sounding a bit on the lazy side of things, but Miho does have her moments of beautiful vocals here, but this just wasn’t that good of a cover.
After “HANABI SKY”, Miho did pick up a little bit with LET IT OUT since it’s a bit of a stronger ballad and will have a lasting impression on me. The rearranged version of Yasashii Aka is alright, but maybe a little too calm for me. Her cover of BEN though did not make me happy since her vocals don’t exactly fit for these kind of songs…hmmm maybe we’ll have another cover that suits her better.
