1. Rainbow -Ningen Shiki-

Not the nicest way to start the album of, with her kiddy-like voice.  The music is a bit depressing and with the random xylophone moments it kind of made it a melancholic track but with Kana’s extreme vocals it can get weird for the listener.

2. Hebi-Ichigo

1st single really kicks off this album in a good way really.  Kana is really showing at how good she’s capable of and her talent to show how far she can totally destroy it also.  I’m still loving this single, if I’m correct this is her most popular song or most recognizable, and I can see why.  Awesome rock track.

3. Kabi

WTF is she doing at the beginning?  Rolling the lips like that, that totally was random.  It’s a very fast rock track and got’s a nice steady beat to it.  Kana sounds a tad monotone in the verses sadly.  It’s one of the “being chased” tracks, if you know what I mean. 

4. Mirukii

A dark and eerie beginning with the strings and odd percussion.  Overall, it is a strange track but it’s got a nice arrangement and the offbeat guitar makes for a better song.  Kana actually doesn’t sound real bad either.  A nice slow rock track here.

5. Toraboruta

Travolta?  Ok, it might be about the famous actor, but this song is just the two tracks before shoved together.  It’s got the soft sounds from “Mirukii” and the chase sounds of “Kabi”.  This song was just overly creepy.  After the chorus there’s a guitar solo that sounded pretty shweet and Kana coming in after that was so cute. 

6. Chimame

We’re here with the 2nd single of the era and it was gritty, strange and c’mon it’s gotta be rockin’ as well.  I still find it oddly slow and kind of messy for a single.  Then again, why am I complaining?  Not the best track off the album.

7. Jueki

Thr shortest track off the album barely reaching 2 minutes, it acts like an interlude.  It’s got some strange percussion with Kana ad-libbing and that’s all it is, not really much of anything and kinda creepy too.

8. Mori

Mori is the oddest track with it’s soft pop roots written to it.  It’s got such a nice calming atmosphere to it which last time seen was “Tsuki no Tsubasa” from the “Kuuchuu Buranko”.  Kana’s vocals can seem whiney here, but they do compliment the song in a way.

9. Kuuchuu Buranko

The final single shows up in a flurry of guitars and pounding beats.  It’s got such a cool sound to it.  Kana sounds evil in this song as well.  It can be a bit messy in the chorus and Kana can sound off a lot.  When she says the title she really stresses into saying it too, What a cool, crazy song.

10. Tsuno

Whoa, definitly the fastest opening in a Kana song, it slows down back into the usual rock fare.  I do like the beats from the drum.  The bridge gots some of the creepiest undertones found on this CD.  Tsuno wins for darkest track.  She’s a bit messy in the vocals and is monotone again, still it’s catchy for sure.

11. Daichi

Daichi, who’s Kana’s brother, I think she wrote it for him.  It’s so abstract with its screeching parts and obscure beats.  Kana’s voice is layered too which caught me as distracting from the song.  I really don’t what to think of the song, its the strangest track for sure.

12. Momo -Me ga Haeta Shiki-

NO, NO, NO!!!  This song sucks just as much as it did in the “Chimame” single.  I tried to find a difference between the 2 versions and there isn’t any.  It’s got the worst vocals in it with Kana sounding so off everywhere.  Terrible final track.

Tracks Recommended

  • Hebi-Ichigo
  • Daichi
  • Mirukii
  • Kuuchuu Buranko

Song of Avoidance

  • Momo ~Me ga Haeta Shiki~

Kana’s debut album was a pretty good start for this gothic lolita.  Every song except Momo was alright, though she could have added a B-side or two.  I’m not sure exactly what her future albums sound like yet, but I think I’m terrified
