Track Listing

  1. Reality
  2. Dancin’ in Hip-Hop
  3. Dancin’ in Hip-Hop -Club Mix-
  4. Reality -Instrumental-
  5. Reality -Acappella

1. Reality

We start her final single with this dark and mysterious track.  Though it still is R&B written all over it, but I do love how the song worked for her.  She doesn’t sound terrible which is so good for me.  The beat is pretty groovy and the synth is pretty much filling in the spaces.  Then the area after the chorus grants us an acoustic guitar and then an explosive section with Ami pretty much expressing herself, sadly I like when she did it the 2nd time because it just seemed to be more together.  Great track, I wish to hear this live though.

2. Dancin in’ Hip-Hop

Then we had to have this song T.T   It’s amanzingly bad.  I mean the song is Hip-Hop to the worst way.  Though I think Ami collaborated with Imfamous Syndicate again, which wouldn’t surprise me at all.  Unlike the better songs that they collaborated, it just seem to American and bland.  Ami is repeating so much and the music isn’t anything good.  Piano line is nice, but that’s all going for it. 

3. Dancin’ in Hip-Hop -Club Mix-

Why does this exactly start up like what Dancin’ in Hip-Hop was sounding like?  After a while it gains a club beat but it still as so damn annoying as the last track.  Though I do like all the synths being featured which made the song not as bad, but in the end it still is a remix for a terrible song.

4. Reality -Acappella-

Take “Reality’s” music out and we’re left with this.  Though I can’t tell if she actually resang it or not, but I’m thinking the latter for one reason.  It’s because the BKGD vocals are still there.  When we begin she starts the song’s first line and then we get this awkward silence before she continues.  I rather have the music…After the chorus there’s that awkward silence like, there’s supposed to be the synth line, but it isn’t.   It’s the only acappella track in her collection, which is pretty special for her.

 

 

Her final SONY single was not what youd call good.  I mean Reality was THE only great track.  Dancin’ in Hip-Hop was a terrible A-side and probably her worst in her SONY career.  The remix and acappella tracks were a step up, but they really weren’t anything special and failed on both spectrums.  Reality though wow, it’s her finest example of great vocals.

Track Listing

  1. THANK YOU 4 EVERY DAY EVERY BODY
  2. I really wanna tell
  3. THANK YOU 4 EVERY DAY EVERY BODY (Club Collapse Remix)
  4. I really wanna tell (Confession Remix)

1. THANK YOU 4 EVERY DAY EVERY BODY

Why was this the only single for the era?  I mean it’s not abad song at all.  The imagery of having fun stays true and the title is a little strange (even though her next single is her final SONY single).  The song is very upbeat, but it comes at a price.  Ami can not sing on a higher register at all.  Her voice is on the uber nasally side.  Luckily, this songs awesome beat keeps it from being disasterous.  Though I do like the song even with her being very bad vocally XD

2. I really wanna tell

Worst idea ever!  I mean this song totally annoys me.  It’s got a dark start but then this guy comes in and totally destroys the song with his ugly ass voice.  Though Ami is just as bad if not worse.  She doesn’t pronounce her English.  The song has some nice points but it’s overshadowed by the fact this guy is in it.  He needs to be shot in the arm.  The song would have been better without him.

3. THANK YOU 4 EVERY DAY EVERY BODY (Club Collapse Remix)

Almost 8 minutes in length, this remix doesn’t surprise me.  I mean it’s more club friendly and yet there’s strings in it?  I actually like the strings line a lot since they are playing smoothly.  Then Ami comes in with the ever so used *megaphone voice*.  Then I hear that her singing doesn’t really click with the music much.  It’s alright, but it’s nothing to write home about at all.

4. I really wanna tell (Confession Remix)

I was surprised at how this song started ominous and very breezy adding more instruments here and there.  The some oooo-ing starts which sounds pretty good.  I’m actually feeling this remix good, it’s definitly a darker track and that guy is still there…That’s not a good idea to have him, but they added some backgrounds vocals so it wasn’t just him and Ami still sounds bad doing her Engrish.  Still this remix fared so much better than the original!

 

 

So the 1st and final single of “Infinity Eighteen Vol.2” was alright, but it seems like her transferring to a more urban feel has failed immensely especially that awful I really wanna tell.  Luckily the remixes were on the better side and the A-side.  But Please…don’t let that guy sing ever again!
