Reincarnation -Extended Version-
Ami keeps rolling out the hits and Reincarnation is definitly something different. She’s not with Nakata anymore which is a little sad to see, but she also ended up with Taku. Even more interesting is that Emi Hinouchi wrote the lyrics. Ami really sound good during the quiet vocal parts, but when the chorus comes out, she is yelling. Luckily, this isn’t the yelling from “climb up to the top” so it’s not that bsd. Still, I love the dance beats to this one.
Yea, it’s a cover of a Me & My track, even fueled by DDR. Now it’s a fully English tune so I was so worried about it and well, Ami being under heavy vocoder doesn’t exactly help it either. Ami doesn’t have a good grasp at the language and adding the vocoder was a bad idea. The music isn’t too bad, but Ami is really bad singing English here.
3. Reincarnation -Extended Version-
Of course what do you expect? It’s a longer version of the A-side. The opening of the track is different and the instrumental parts are more focused this time around. Adding about 2 more minutes to the song it’s still the cool A-side we’ve come to known, so it’s basically there for those ravers.
Ami’s 1st single for a new era brings a change to her Nakata stuff for sure. Reincarnation is a great way deviate away from him because it still has a great dance beat and it’s catchy. Dub-I-Dub, however was just a little meh and for being a cover of a DDR song, I wasn’t expecting much from it, especially if it’s in English. “ONE” and “can’t stop the DISCO” were better singles IMO
