THIS IS CRAZY
1. Hear the alarm?
Meisa kickstarts the album with a pretty slick track that starts with a pretty sweet synth line which definitly brought some pretty slick sounds and the strings leading into the first verse were epic. Meisa’s vocals are either filtered or she’s that good since she’s carrying a sexy sound. Definitly one of the sweetest tracks.
2. Like This
Like This was the only song to get a digital release (hence the bold). Sadly, the whole heavy R&B beat wasn’t as affectious as the previous track and Meisa is kind of in a pretty bad spot singing that chorus pretty blandly. I don’t know this was a pretty bad track.
3. Bad Girl
Bad Girl was one of two PV’s to promote the album and this is one of the hottest and naughtiest PV’s and song’s to have started this year off and Meisa is just showing up her skills pretty great. I love how catchy the chorus and the synths accompanying it seemed to blend. The music is a bit like Timbaland’s stuff, but here it works right. Best song on this mini.
The other song to have an accompanying PV was Criminal. It sounds in particular different from the other songs with its loud drums and guitar hits. I didn’t think she could pull of a dance/rock combination and with Meisa sounding pretty loud, it’s a great combination. The yelling can get annoying after a while, but this is a pretty strong track.
5. No, no, no
Then we go back into a bit of a trench with our next track. Now, that’s said because we return to a more R&B sound and it still doesn’t exactly sit well with me because I felt the song was a bit repetitive kind of felt bored and annoyed at the song. Pass this one.
When I think of songs that has the title of SEX, I think of something really dirty and hardcore. Meisa kind of took it a bit slower and showed some pretty nice vocals despite some of it is yelling. It’s definitly another good mid-tempo aggressive track that’s about SEX xD I definitly enjoy the ~goin’ crazy cuz I’m thinkin bout sex~ line. The rapper has a small part, but w/e he wasn’t important.
Piano, saxes, and R&B beat usually are sweet together, however Lost sounds a bit like “SEX” minus the innotations. Another track to really fail to make a pretty good impression because she’s going up into some high tones that sound pretty bad.
8. THIS IS CRAZY
Why yes, yes it is crazy and it makes me wonder why this was saved for being last. The song has very darkwave kind of sound which was totally different and Meisa is under some auto-tune which helps the song out immensely. I mean she really does good with these songs and this was probably the darkest, yet slyest track off this mini. SEWEEEET
Meisa Kuroki’s debut album proved she can really bring out the sexyness expecially since this year so far is lacking in that department. hellcat as whole was split half and half though. Her R&B stuff isn’t too hot, but her more experimental stuff was exciting. Her voice is a little shaky becuase she’s relying too much on yelling to get through the songs which is terrible. Still for a debut, Meisa has done good here.
