Kanon Wakeshima – RIGHT LIGHT RISE April 25, 2015

Track Listing

  1. RIGHT LIGHT RISE
  2. Mayday!
  3. RIGHT LIGHT RISE (instrumental)
  4. Mayday! (instrumental)

1. RIGHT LIGHT RISE

Uhhhh, why does this song sound like it opens up with a mariachi band?  Yeah, I wasn’t expecting the song to open up that way, but after that it becomes more of what I was expecting from Kanon (though it’s a bit of a pop/rock anison track).  I do like the sound of the song and Kanon’s voice is nice…it just shows that Kanon is moving further away from her cello skills it seems.  Eh, it’s OK…but really is a switch for her.

2. Mayday!

The B-side of the single, Mayday! is a bit more edgy with gritty guitars and yet has a slightly darker tinge in comparison to “RIGHT LIGHT RISE”.  I actually dug this song more than the A-side because I always thought Kanon sung these songs better as she can emote those feelings much better.  Very cool B-side!

Let’s be honest, I was ready to see Kanon go back for another long hiatus, but she quickly announced a new single so shortly after her 3rd album, “Tsukinami”.  RIGHT LIGHT RISE sadly is probably the most generic A-side she’s released yet.  The guitarwork is OK, but Kanon could’ve been replaced by any other artist who’d probably do it better justice.  Mayday! though was the better song, something more along the vein of what we’re used to.  With another A-side announced, seems like Warner has finally got her to be more active!

  15. Starry Night (y0c1e Remix)

1. Beautiful Dreamer

As part of the 4th and final A-side released for the album, we kicks things off with Beautiful Dreamer.  It’s an interesting choice to say the least.  I do love that we get a lot of Manami Arai here because I felt she was one of the back members.  Alongside the other leads: Sengoku, Furukawa, and Saho, the song is a nice start as it isn’t hardcore but not too slow (plus it’s at the peak where the group has adopted a more EDM-sound than their pop/rock roots.  I still think the rap section is a little out of place, but the song itself is not all that bad.

2. Kirakira Mirai

As the first of four new tracks on the album, Kirakira Mirai surprisingly brings back the group to their rock roots which is surprising with the lack of them in the era.  Though, this song is pretty loud and furious with its arrangement.  While the PV only had three of the members present, the song is all 7 of them.  Overall, this is a very speedy track and even has some odd moments (makes me think of BABYMETAL but not overly dramatic).

3. Up&Up!

The next track is also a new one for this album and I definitely figured this one was going to be more towards the group’s overall sound.  I will say the intro fizzling out to that bouncy piano melody was slightly misleading there XD.  The chorus adds back the heavy beat, but at that point the song seems a little dragging for me.  Not too big of a fan of this one.

4. ENJOY!! ENJO(Y)!!

The next two tracks are from the first single of the era (ironically enough the only single that came out before their sophomore album was released).  I did like the introduction of the song with the fade-in, but re-listening to the song after how long it’s been out, it really hasn’t grown on me because of the reliance on auto-tune here (plus the speak-singing wasn’t cutting it for me).  Definitely my least favorite of the A-sides.

5. Nijiiro Mosaic

As least there was the other A-side to impress me from the single.  As both tracks were winter-themed tunes, Nijiiro Mosaic took to drum n’ bass for this song and I thought it was rather refreshing to listen to (especially with how much EDM they would be releasing).  I do like it a lot more than “ENJOY!! ENJO(Y)!!” but it does have its share of issues.  I couldn’t care less about the ~kimi ni, kimi ni, kimi ni~ repetition.  Still not bad.

6. Zenryoku! Pump Up!!

Though the song that really caught my attention in this era, was this A-side from their 3rd single of the era.  From the shimasen intro to the club-banging arrangement, Zenryoku! Pump Up!! was a fun track to listen to that’s for sure.  It really gets you energized and all of the members get a line to their own which is quite awesome!  Definitely the best of the album!

7. Itadaki wo Mesazu!

Another song that made me happy to see appear, Itadaki wo Mesazu! comes next and is somewhat like “Beautiful Dreamer” but has a bit more oomph to it.  Add in that there’s quite a bit of Ayano (who’s another member that doesn’t get to shine in songs as much as the main members.  I kind of feel like this is a Zedd arranged song because of the way it flows and the descending synth notes.  It’s still a pretty cool song though!

8. (Kakko Kari) wa Kaesuze☆be your soul

Of course they have to have that one really in-your-face kind of track and (Kakko Kari) wa Kaesuze☆be your soul fits the bill similarly to “UPPER ROCK” and “SAMURAI GIRLS” before this.  It’s pretty loud and quick with a whole lot of punch to it.  Though I can’t help but feel they kind of overdid it here with the arrangement.  It’s alright overall, but a bit messy.

9. Bijo no Yajuu

~I am a beassst~ is all can think of when this song comes up because it’s chanted a lot during the tune.  The next new track, Bijo no Yajuu is definitely a song best performed live because of the punch and the chanting plus the power of most of the arrangement.  Not really a fan of the auto-tune on the group here (except the really low parts).  Though in the later half, I feel like the song turns into a club-thumper and to the end is just badass…I can see myself really getting into this one.

10. Jumper!

Going back a bit to Jumper!, this song is also lyrically presented fast which is pretty hard to keep up, but the tune jumps in with the bouncy beat and some cut n’ pastin vocals which is eh.  To be honest, compared to the other A-sides, this one felt like it was just padding to the album…there’s nothing totally special about this one that couldn’t be found on any of their previous works.

11. Runway

The last of the new songs, Runway makes me think of songs like “Rainbow” & “Cyalume” with the floaty arrangement and smooth synth arrangement.  That being said, it gives me a kind-of 80’s vibe to it as well (actually it reminds me of Aira Mitsuki’s stuff).  I like the track being something that doesn’t try too hard to get things through.  Also, it’s not a Sengoku solo despite her being the only one in the PV.  Overall nice!

12. Kono Melody wo Kimi to

That being said, putting our next track next to “Runway” didn’t change too much beyond adding a stronger beat and some piano to the arrangement.  Though this song also reminds me of “Beautiful Dreamer” as well with it’s upbeat and happy nature.  Funny enough this song came out before the two so there’s that.  Overall, Kono Melody wo Kimi to is OK, grown less one me as time went by…but I can tolerate it.

13. Party! Party!

Maybe it’s me, but at this point of the album, I was starting to get bored and by the time Party! Party! came up I was kind of falling behind.  This song does include some actual guitar and bass alongside the happy-go-lucky vocals.  It’s OK and it does try to deviate from the excess of EDM on the album.

14. Zenryoku! Pump Up!! -ULTRA Mix-

I still don’t even know why the group had to add this song to the tracklist because like I’ve said on the single review, it really just dulls the song more than it needs.  I mean the energy is a bit higher, but the song’s twists and turns really throw me off and there’s not a lot of song to be had either.  It’s alright, but pales in comparison to the original.

15. Starry Night (y0c1e Remix)

The album ends off with a new remix of Starry Night (a song from their “Second Album” era).  I do love how it begins like a simple club remix and grows into a rather interesting remix.  It lets off the beats to let the chorus begin (which is really high XD) then enters back into its club beats which is really cool funny enough.  Makes 2 for 2 because I loved their last remix of “Widol Seven” so this was just as good!

  • ENJOY!! ENJO(Y)!!

I was pretty surprised that the group slightly slowed down their releases from 8 singles a year to 4 this time around.  Also, this 3rd album actually looks like a studio album and less a best-of (still a bit short on new songs, but it’s baby steps).  Third Album though didn’t have too many standout songs that their previous two did which is slightly unfortunate, but their sound is quite strong.  Let’s just go back to exciting songs for the next release!

 

Ai Otsuka – LOVE TRiCKY April 23, 2015

  2. laugh
  3. summer lovely days
  4. affair
  5. I’m lonely
  6. reach for the moon
  7. shooting star
  8. Parallel World
  9. busy lady
  10. end and and ~10,000 hearts~

1. Time Machine

Wow, wasn’t expecting the album to open up with synths and such!  Yup, Time Machine really sets the album for what it’ll sound like for majority of it.  It’s very spacey and very Ai-chin since it kind of reminds me of her revisioned “5:09AM -Perrier-“.  Ai’s voice sounds relaxed and fun as well which adds to the bright EDM track.  It is a bit long for over 5 minutes for some reason, but it’s a nice first track.

2. laugh

Though I have to say, I wasn’t expecting a slightly darker sounding track to come in in the form of laugh.  With Ai’s vocals put on filters for majority of the track, it gives a really cool feel to the track and the ~give me love, give me love, give me love hey…~ of the chorus is different (and could be repetitive for some), but this song instantly connected to me.  Still the deeper arrangement is pretty awesome and the bridge was cool too.  Definitely an early favorite for me!

3. summer lovely days

Taking a more lighter route with summer lovely days, it’s a surprise that it departs from the beats to have a more natural flow and I quite liked the softer glow in this songs.  Ai’s voice is quite lovely here and the acoustic guitar mixed with the small synth blips are just sending peaceful vibes.  Makes me think of “Coco Natsu Vacation” but more towards today’s standards.  Very pretty song!

4. affair

Next up, the beats are back in full punch with the intro but with clapping beats as well which is interesting to hear.  I’m not sure what Ai was going for here because the arrangement feels like it would’ve been suited for Kuu but then at the same time Ai gives a mysterious feel to it that I don’t think no one could replicate.  It’s an odd song, but I like it lol.

5. I’m lonely

Getting into I’m lonely, why did I get a weird feel like it sounds like something Lady Gaga would be OK with using?  Ai’s voice is a little more deeper sounding in the verses but opens up with the chorus which is pretty cool.  It’s a pretty cool track and very up to current sounds in J-pop.

6. reach for the moon

Then things finally take a break and we enter the ballad of the album, reach for the moon.  It’s a bit weird, but it fits amongst the upbeat tracks because after a while it gets a beat and becomes a mid-tempo presentation.  After a while, the song kind of just fades to the back of my mind…just seems like it’s a bit too repetitive and has not a whole lot of direction.  Also a bit too long over 5 and a half minutes.

7. shooting star

Our next track feels like from the start it’s building up to a really kickass song, but like “reach for the moon” it kind of doesn’t and ends up almost sounding like the mentioned track with a little more melody involved so it evades being another borefest.  It sounds great for driving at night…it’s just real smooth and soothing at the same time.

8. Parallel World

Next track up, Parallel World gives us another upbeat song with the focus on piano acting as a secondary melody (well when it’s present, since a lot of it has the synths).  Ai’s vocals are a bit on the higher side of things, but she tries to keep herself in check and it wasn’t ear-piercing either!  It’s alright overall.

9. busy lady

Now this sounds like something familiar to me.  Well, knowing that STUDIO APARTMENT had produced the album mostly, busy lady really reminded me of their music which is really nice because it’s relaxing and yet is done so professionally.  busy lady is quite nice to listen to actually some of the arrangement reminds me of a mix of Ami Suzuki’s “The WeekeND” and “Bitter…” which the latter was produced by STUDIO APARTMENT.  Still a cool song for sure!

10. end and and ~10,000 hearts~

Then the album closes out with end and and (wht?) and kicks it off with a heartbeat before the song moves faster and opens to a piano intro into the song.  Though after a while it really grows into a nice dance track and Ai’s whispy vocals suit the sound great.  A nice ending to the album!

Song of Avoidance

  • reach for the moon

Wow, I wasn’t expecting Ai to release a new album over than half a year after “LOVE FANTASTIC” was released.  Lucky she did because while I do think the aforementioned album was OK, the new songs were mostly lackluster and boring.  LOVE TRiCKY on the other hand was totally unexpected and with the album being drenched over EDM courtesy from STUDIO APARTMENT and the overall experience was really nice, if not slightly safe.  Meaning the a lot of the songs didn’t have too much depth to them, but focused on the music more than Ai’s vocals which is something she doesn’t do a lot of in her career.  It’s a better album than her last two studio albums, but makes it in the middle for overall in her career.

 

Ayumi Hamasaki – A ONE April 14, 2015

Track Listing

  1. a Bell
  2. WARNING
  3. NO FUTURE
  4. Anything for You
  5. Last minute
  6. Zutto…
  7. Out of control
  8. Story
  9. The GIFT
  10. The Show Must Go On
  11. Walk
  12. Movin’ on without you
  13. Tell All (2015 mix) (Team Ayu Limited only)

1. a Bell

Of course, Ayu would kick her album off with a short intro.  I’m not sure what I was expecting from it, besides a bell somewhere in the background, but a lot of it is just only piano/strings.  To be quite honest the intro sounds like something from Final Fantasy X or Kingdom Hearts…it just has the flowing, grandiose sound…but as quickly as it starts, it ends.  Weird because it doesn’t connect very well into the first full track…

2. WARNING

Simply put, WARNING just kicks things into gear with a heavier rock sound.  I do love the mix of the synths and guitars giving it a high-octane track.  Ayu sounds pretty good here and the energy is off the wall which is something I’ve been missing from Ayu for quite some time.  I do think her ~la-la-las~ are a bit overused in the song (so much padding).  Still a great song to really get things going (despite the album not exactly coming close to replicating this feeling for the rest of the way).

3. NO FUTURE

Seems like Ayu is working with Tetsuya Komuro again and this is a throwback song if there was ever one.  It sounds like something I would’ve expected globe to release back in the days.  It has that signature Tetsuya sound with the synths and eurobeat chords that really represent avex of days past.  Ayu though does pretty well in this song, she sounds strong and suits the arrangement quite nicely. (If only “Love songs” had sounded remotely like this).

4. Anything for You

Then we leave the upbeat songs for our stretch of ballads.  Up first is Anything for You and judging by the 7:00 length of the song, I was already coming in with a frown on my face.  I will say that if anything, it does reminds me of “M” for some reason, but this song drags a lot of the way and by the time I get to the end, I’m so unfocused on the track and forget what it sounds like.

5. Last minute

At least we get into some familiarity with Last minute (part of the triple A-side that preceded the album).  I still do think that from the single, Last minute was the most impressive because Ayu really projected her emotions very well.  Plus, the song opens up into a kickass rock ballad as well which is something to break the monotony of her ballads.  Great song to have on the album!

6. Zutto…

Interesting that this and “Last minute” switched spots as being first.  Being the lead A-side, Zutto… is a pretty good ballad as well, but if it wasn’t for the exploding aforementioned song, Zutto… had to take 2nd place.  I will say hearing it now, it oddly reminds me of “Anything for You”, but the melody is quite stronger and Ayu put more effort here.  There’s not much else to say here, but it’s a nice little tune still.

7. Out of control

For a song title like Out of control, I was kind of expecting something like “WARNING” with power behind it, not another simple piano/strings ballad.  Talk about being led astray, Out of control barely left a mark on me and feels like something we just heard in “Zutto…” and “Last minute” but half-assing on both.  The guitar solo I suppose was really nice, but overall…it was just white noise.

8. Story

Man, these ballads are really killing me right now.  I really don’t know why she’s linking so many ballads together, but it’s starting to bore me to death.  It’s a lot like what I felt for “Out of control” but this time it’s a little more like “Last minute” with the stronger guitar chords.  Also, the melody does stick to me a little better as well, so it’s not a total loss.

9. The GIFT

I’m not sure why, but the opening for our next song sounded almost haunting (well before the song switched it up and became plain again).  I do like that Ayu’s singing is a lot lighter than in other songs.  Something about this ballad though works and there’s some really interesting parts.  Not bad and the ending is pretty as hell lol.

10. The Show Must Go On

I wasn’t sure what we were going to get with our next track, but it feels like we’re escaping the ballads finally!  Bringing back a nice eurobeat arrangement to give us a song that sounds like it would be great for live performances as it’s loud and bright.  Ayu sounds good too (if not slightly nasal), but this track is fun, that’s for sure.

11. Walk

The only song from the single, I wished was left off the album was this track, simply because it really doesn’t leave much of an impression nor does it do any better being here as it’s even less remarkable.  Weird that it is separated from the other ballads of the album (probably was a smart thing in the long run).  Just still kind of flies over my head, though it’s not as boring as “Out of control” and this song kind of sounds like a ballad from her past albums.

12. Movin’ on without you

I was surprised that this was added on last minute to the album.  If you don’t know, this is a cover of a Hikki song (plus it was released on her tribute album, “Utada Hikaru no Uta”).  Ayu’s take on this classic is quite nice and has a certain updated R&B feel which caught my interest quickly.  It’s the odd song of the album, but I feel like Ayu did this cover quite well!

13. Tell All (2015 mix)

For Team Ayu members, they get a bonus track in the form of a new version of her 2013 digital single, Tell All.  I was surprised that she’d throw this on A ONE (and not “Colours” for some reason).  It opens like a ballad which is no surprise, but I knew the song was going to get strong.  There’s a lot of differences between the two versions, but I prefer this one because it builds up to an epic chorus and throwing the guitars and synths from the original in the second chorus was just awesome!  Great revision!

With Ayu these days, I’m not sure what she’s going for anymore. “Colours” brought a more vivid and outgoing Ayu while A ONE focuses more on the calmer side (with some exceptions like WARNING and THE FUTURE) but I kind of was here and there with this one.  A ONE really shoved most of the ballads in the middle of the album, minus Walk…but I was so over many of them quickly and the upbeat songs too precedence to my likings.  With a mini-album already announced less than a week this album dropped, I wonder what’s going on.

  6. Ima Koko Kara (Instrumental)

1. Seishun Kozou ga Naiteiru

Ahhh, we finally get to the debut of the new 12th generation, sadly it seems like Tsunku is continuing to give the group heavy electro songs.  Though this song is quite different from songs like “TIKI BUN” and “Password is 0″ by having a little more depth into its sound, but still managing to keep it synth-heavy.  The verses are odd because they have chanting, pauses, and such and yet the chorus is strong and fills the headphones nicely.  While I still continue to wish that Tsunku could drop the style for the group (as Momusu has never really had a sound they’ve stuck to for SOOOO long like the EDM of recent years, but it shows that the group isn’t the same vocal powerhouses like generations before.

2. Yuugure wa Ameagari

Next is the 2nd A-side and probably the least promoted of the 3, Yuugure wa Ameagari to me kind of takes the lighthearted sound from “Toki wo Koe Sora wo Koe” with the piano-esque arrangement and fuses with the EDM beats.  Add in the strings and it sort of feels like a Platinum era song.  I do love that Riho is not really anywhere in the song and its led mostly by Mizuki and Sakura!  It’s a pretty song though and I definitely prefer over both of the other songs on this single

3. Ima Koko Kara

Used as the theme for the Precure movie, Haru no Carnival, Ima Koko Kara was released a couple weeks earlier than on this single, so I’ve had more time with it.  When I heard the Precure version of this song, I was not feeling it because the seiyuu’s were sounding off and way too cute.  Momusu’s take is what I’ve come to expect and I was loving that Sakura led it off.  I was also getting “Toki wo Koe Sora wo Koe” vibes here too (moreso than “Yuugure wa Ameagari” but then the chorus came up and I was thinking the group sounded bored.  Then I find out that it’s a short song (I felt like after the 2nd chorus, it was building up to a final chorus, but it ends up what I thought was the bridge…was the ending so it was a strange, abrupt ending…Not something I liked here.

Momusu kicks off their 2015 (under their new-ish name XD) with a rather eh single.  I’m not sure what it was but I’m seriously running dry on this EDM SO FAST.  Like please, change their sound before they become so redundant and tired!  Seishun Kozou ga Naiteiru just didn’t resonate much for me and I feel like it’s time for a change…there were some good parts though.  Yuugure wa Ameagai was nice if not a nod to their Platinum era past, the best from the single.  As for Ima Koko Kara, it’s nice, but the ending was just not handled correctly and made it so short and abrupt (for a movie theme…I couldn’t get behind it).  Oh yeah, this was also the debut for Maria Makino, Akane Haga, Haruna Ogata, and Miki Nonaka and they were quite invisible on the single (not even a solo line in ANY of the three songs…I seriously hope they get more spotlight on the next single!

Track Listing

  1. Catch Me If You Can
  2. Girls
  3. Catch Me If You Can (without vocal tracks)

1. Catch Me If You Can

Looks, like the group is finally returning to Japan for their 4th era and it starts off with a bang.  Kicking it off with a very cool synth wave, Catch Me If You Can might be a more basic song, lyrically, but the sound is pretty amazing, giving us a EDM-heavy arrangement with amazing vocals.  Oh yeah, did I mention that the back girls, Yuri, Hyoyeon, Sooyoung, and Yoona are the leads instead of the normal members (sans Jessica)?  That in itself is amazing, because I’ve always wanted to see more of them.  Otherwise, this song is pretty cool and a great leading track!

2. Girls

Then we get the B-side of the single and it’s a simple piano ballad.  Really that’s all that can be said because it’s WAY simple and kind of boring for me.  I will say that the ladies (especially Tiffany and Seohyun) sound really pretty in the song, but the song is still way too basic and doesn’t carry itself very well even as a B-side.

Their first single after Jessica’s departure, Catch Me If You Can is a pretty solid A-side as an 8-nin group!  The energy is pretty epic and having the back girls FINALLY taking the spotlight was quite magical and I hope this means equal line distribution from here on out!  Girls though was just plain and boring as hell to listen to…OK single overall.

 

Juice=Juice – Wonderful World/Ça va? Ça va? April 7, 2015

Filed under: Juice=Juice — solarblade @ 5:34 am

50-4712_99_001@99_o_4P-

Track Listing

  1. Wonderful World
  2. Ça va? Ça va?
  3. Wonderful World (Instrumental)
  4. Ça va? Ça va? (Instrumental)

1. Wonderful World

I really am not sure what to say about Juice=Juice’s first A-side here.  I wasn’t expecting the song to be so overly cutesy (rather Juice=Juice is supposed to be a cool group) and this song just doesn’t fit that bill.  I will say that the song reminds me of H!P of past which I suppose is the good thing and the vocals are OK (not sure if I’m OK with Kanatomo hitting strange high notes).  Not really a song I’ll go back to, but I suppose it has its fans somewhere.

2. Ça va? Ça va?

As for the other A-side, Ça va? Ça va? is a pretty interesting song.  I mean the intro with the ~dabadabas~ remind me of surfer rock mixed with Buono!’s “Rottara Rottara” (without the epic trio at hand).  After that, it switches the ballgame to a kind of Mediterreanean kind of tune (duh, French song title and the addition of accordion to the arrangement…makes it so much so and makes me think about Kaori Iida’s solo works oddly enough).  I’m also happy to hear everyone’s vocals are back down to the ground AND more Aarii and Yukanyan here.  It’s a pretty nice song and it has a lot more memorable parts than “Wonderful World” did so it definitely is the better of the two.

 

 

Man, when will this group release an album (still no “Erabareshi Watashitachi”?)…I actually thought the whole cool route was lost on the group with Wonderful World, I will say it’s something a little different than other H!P songs (which we’re slowly drifting away from) sadly, the song is a bit too generic sounding to me…like I felt like I’ve heard this way too many times before.  The same can’t be said about Ça va? Ça va? since it’s so French and fun to listen to.  I just hope there’s an album soon or it’ll be nothing but a best album…>.<
