MIRACLE -Allegro vivace.mix-
I’m not sure why this era has been all over the place for Rina. I mean each single has been a different sound and feel and with MIRACLE it’s like she went for uber pop and for the most part it came off quite nicely, but it’s so unorthodox for her to become smily poppy that it’s just a little strange for me to listen to Rina that way.
2. Especial thanks
For the B-side, Especial thanks is probably her song for her fans which I guess is nice to have and of course it’s a ballad. I think Rina’s vocals have gotten a bit stronger for this song and I love how the song builds to the chorus. It’s definitely got A-side quality written all over it (then again, what B-side of hers isn’t?

So of course we get a remix of the A-sid and in my opinion it sounds a bit more like the usual Rina I’m used to because it’s more like a dance song than just a cute pop song. I mean it’s still pretty much sunshine and rainbows, but I think it sounds better off this way.
Rina finishes off the “DELIGHT” era with the happiest A-side released and MIRACLE really didn’t leave much of an impression on me (the remix did though). Especial thanks continues this whole (B-side > A-side) ordeal that’s been hitting her ever since she debuted and yes, I know she released “COLORS” there’s still a lot of B-sides she hasn’t put on albums yet and I wonder if there’ll be another one haha.
