CHANCE! (GAME SIZE)
CHANCE! calms things a little bit after their explosive debut. I think everyone got off their rock high because this song is definitly different from the last single. There’a a lot more finesse through the song and TAKUYA sounds so much more better this time around because he isn’t stressing his vocals as much. Even the interlude middle was pretty epic. Definitly a lot of problems fixed in the A-side.
PRIME though gives us the hardcore UVERworld as it is the hardest track off the single. Furious guitar riffs and a lot of screaming from the band. I do love TAKUYA’s small solo line where the synths take over for a bit, but other than that…the song is just too busy and squished together to make a pretty uncomfortable track to sit through. TAKUYA’s growling doesn’t help the song much either, but meh.
Oddly enough, rounding out the single is simply kind of like a mix of the two tracks. TAKUYA’s funky vocals still appear and I don’t like it, but when the song enters its slow part his vocals become so much more better. I don’t know why he does it throughout the song, but it just kind of creates a line throughout the song. It’s better than “PRIME” though.
UVERworld’s 2nd single is continuing to show the band’s growth for sure. CHANCE! was amazing and a lot better than “D-tecnoLife”. SHINE was also pretty good, but a little shaky because of the vocal changes throughout. PRIME did show a harder outlook for the group, but I didn’t quite like how TAKUYA was singing it…OK single at best.
