1. Hitotsu

So, we have a ballad as the A-side.  Even though it isn’t as epic as “Ashita e no Sanka”, it’s just as pretty if not more.  Her vocals aren’t daggers to my through unlike some artists so I can really enjoy the song.  Chinese elements are prevelent in the song as well which brings a nice look to the past as well with the ballad.  Pretty good song.

2. Kimi Omou Sora

I thought this was more modern and yet oddly simplistic of a song.  It’s definitly a pop song just as how “Sakura Modern” was combing old and new to make a completely new track and sound.  Though I found this to be too much like said song to make a more efficient impression.  Luckily her voice is steady and really nice to hear.

3. Tokyo Mimei

I thought of a little R&B appeared for this song which is something I would not have expected.  Then it just turns out to be another pop ballad from alan.  I miss the mountain notes already.  The song just kind of left me thinking that this was really boring for a ballad and prolly should have added more to it.

4. sign

Not really much a full track, but like an elongated interlude.  It’s has alan doing some chinese ad-libbing so some futuristic sounds.  I found it to be oddly relaxing and good to listen to.  Now, if there were just vocals, then I’d probably would have had this track as my favorite.

 

 

alan’s 2nd single really didn’t surprise me in any way actually.  I mean she didn’t use her powerful vocals as in her debut.  The songs did make her sound more mainstream, I’ll give her that, but the songs were a little on the boring side.  sign was probably the most interesting track from here.
