1. Cutie Honey
Who hasn’t heard this track? I mean Kuu has really caught sexy with this theme track from the movie of the same name. Now, people who has heard the original will obviously find this one more sexually sounding because if you’ve read the lyrics this song is a little dirty. Also for being somewhat as a re-cut (was on “feel my mind” as a bonus), this might be the downfall for it. Still, it’s an amazing track and made the biggest difference to start out the “secret” era.
2a. The Theme of Sister Jill
Also was used in the movie, Cutie Honey. The Theme of Sister Jill is a moving slow track. Problem is, is that it’s a short tune, not even making a minute and a half. Kuu sounds heavenly in the song (no pun intended) and with some BKGD vocals it really does stand out. I really love the music accompainment as well, but I think the song is entirely in English and you know how Kuu does English……
2b. The Theme of Sister Jill ~LOVE & HONEY version~
However, if you get the CD only version, you’ll notice the song is about normal time of musical tracks and not a shortened version. It’s just like the short version, but luckily she adds more to the song which is a great idea. You’ll still notice where the original ends, but when the song comes back she’s sings in her native tongue and the song take a more R&B sound than a gospel sound. This is what the song should’ve been the whole time.
3. Yogiri no Honey
I have to say, The sensual R&B sound Yogiri no Honey possesses really sounds refreshing on the single. Problem is that, I didn’t exactly like the repetitious ~Sweet, sweet honey~ parts. Kuu once again shows more progress as she continues to wow us with her sultry vocals. I’m also noticing the so far, all the tracks have featured strings in some way, this time with the bass being the most prominent. Still it’s an amazing song from her.
4. Into your heart
Into your heart has the most dance-like attributes of the single and is also the best track off the single. I felt her vocals were very powerful here and just resonated throughout. At first, when the song started it was sounded a little cheesy, but this took the cake once she started going. Sweet Song!!
LOVE & HONEY begins the quad singles that keep popping up in Kuu’s discography. Luckily, all of the songs were nothing of greatness. Even though Cutie Honey was well-known before this single, it made a great track. Theme of Sister Jill was more or less a glorified interlude, but sweet nonetheless. At least there’s the LOVE & HONEY version to make it a complete song. Yogiri no Honey is a nice and smooth R&B track and was surprised it didn’t sound as bland as her past tracks. Last, but not least, Into your heart was wow! I mean finally we get a great pop track in the veins of “real Emotion”. Great start to the era if you ask me.
