1. World of move

This is the introduction to the album, and pretty much the group since it epitomizes what’s to come in the future from them.  It’s not much but it’s a good start.

2. Bust the Future Wall (move into the rockin’ beat)

Our first new track is very freaky.  motsu takes up the first half with his sharp rapping skills.  They come out so fast and smoothly, I’m always surprised by him.  Yuri then comes in next with a verse and chorus, but she’s so harsh sounding.  I can’t believe they had her hit the high notes like that.  As for the music, it’s funky with some wacky percussion and some cool synths and piano coming in whenever Yuri starts singing.  Sadly, the song loses some points from that horrendous chorus.

3. around the world

Continuing with the funkiness, around the world does step it up quite a bit.  motsu once again flashes his rap skills across the song which is pretty cool.  I still think this song is a bit slow for some reason, it’s usually when Yuri starts singing where I think that.  Poor Yuri getting shafted like that. 

4. Rage your dream

Taking a new turn is Rage your dream, where it’s piano that leads the track which is a nice change.  Yuri actually sounds pretty good in this song for the first time.  The piano doesn’t overpower her either which is so perfect.  The beats are still the same-ole eurobeat stuff but isn’t oberbearing on me.  motsu has some quick rapping parts but its not annoying at all. Best single of the era.

5. Wanna fly to Be wild

Odd start of a song, but it gets to the usual fare of eurobeat stuff.  mostu is rapping really fast again and I got lost with it.  yuri again sounds great in this song too.  I found myself once again thinking “Why is this song slower than it needs to be”.  Yeah I know if it was faster I would’ve liked it a lot more but this is a nice start.

6. ROCK IT DOWN

We’ve hit the debut song now?  Strange place to put it if you ask me.  I really didn’t enjoy this track.  I mean the beginning was just too long for me and too repetitive.  Everyone sounds a little different also.  motsu sounds young and yuri sounds like she need major work on her vocal ability.  Worst song on the album.

7. BLOWIN’ WIND

I really liked the start of the song with the eerie synth sound.  Then after all that it goes all happy sounding which really threw me off and the end of the melody sounded like “around the world” and yuri also ends the verse sounding exactly like that, talk about unoriginal.  Though out of that it’s a pretty good feelgood track from them.

8. See you, my best love

Ahhh, a good combination of piano and synths if you ask me.  Yuri actually starts the song off and I can’t tell if they are trying for a ballad.  Then yuri ends the verse and the beat comes in.  I actually really like this track.  motsu does rap but he does it in a monotone way which bothered me a bit, but the song is not like the other tracks.  Very cool.

9. over drive

Ack!, I really don’t like the original song at all.  It’s so slow and boring and just uninspired.  If I had heard this version first I might have somewhat enjoyed it.  Even on their Best singles, they decided to use the faster version since it was more popular and for good reason too.  At least they made a good decision from that right?

10. take me higher

Talk about fast brass sounds from the keyboard.  This is at a right speed and it’s another feelgood song with it’s airy composition.  Yuri sounds pretty good, she’s has such a nice voice and good vibrato.  The chorus has her shooting lyrics pretty quickly, she does it precisely and didn’t take away from the song.  motsu’s rapping sounds like there’san echo in it and it was fast, you can tell what he’s was saying though.  Another good track from move.

11. past days ~ Tsuioku

Yuri once again starts this track, but she sounded sharp on the first note, it kinda was bad.  Another pop track but with a different sound altogether.  It’s another one of their songs that stick out pretty obviously.  I kind of thought Yuri sounded nasal here and motsu’s rapping was just unusual in a track like this.  It does make a great album closer.

  • Rage your dream

Song of Avoidance

  • ROCK IT DOWN

This was one of the oddest albums of the time, and seriously it wasn’t that good of one either, most were eurobeat stuff and really didn’t change any factors at all.  I think this was an ok experimental album from them.  Though the are a experimental group anyways LOL.  Oh well
