Seeds of dream
Reasons for tears
Guuzen no Kakuritsu (Oh My Gold Mix)
ESCAPE (ice cream remix)
1. Seeds of dream
Starting a new era fresh is all good and what not, but utilizing the same damn sounds is just poor and very unhealthy especially if GND is an anniversary group. That being said, Seeds of dream is another “Drive away” which is terrible and the only thing that really stood out was the fact the synths were more important than the electric guitar. So much for a new direction…CHISA is still sounding the same she has been through the first era. Yelling and getting by barely…The breakdown in the middle was cool but shortlived…meh track.
2. Reason for tears
Luckily, Reason for tears is a darker tone which they haven’t shown much since “Guuzen no Kakuritsu” and to hear a new dark sounding track is great, but the chorus just destroyed any hope for the song. It’s the same phrasing and mood as the other tracks. I swear they are going to be stuck in rut for a long ass while if they dont change up their sound.
3. Guuzen no Kakuritsu (Oh My Gold Mix)
Guuzen no Kakuritsu’s remix starts out just like the original with the piano line, luckily it’s a eurobeat remix which takes out the blandness of the original and for being a track longer than 6 minutes and I actually found this to be the fresh air the song needs and I enjoyed it a lot. It sounds a lot like some of Ayu’s remixes, but this pretty good. Best track.
4. ESCAPE (ice cream mix)
Jeeze, this remix is so long. Almost 9 minutes of music is torturous and it shows because likewise to the past “ice cream remixes” it starts to slow and it rarely changes pace or interest. I do like how they worked her vocals into the music this time, but givin the fact that it’s so long just kind of makes me wanna pass the track and forget about it.
GND’s first single for this era is surprisingly bland on all levels. If they keep doing this to the fans, I’m sure they’ll forget about them altogether. Seeds of dream is a little better at representing itself, but falls short because it is “Drive away pt. 2”. Reason for tears had potential to be really good, but falls short with a very boring chorus line. The remixes were ok, I liked Guuzen’s more than ESCAPE’s because it wasn’t horribly drawn out. Iono…this direction is going to put them in a very bad state if they keep on this.
