Thank you for us (ArrangementVersion)
Maybe I should be embarassed about listening to Brightness, because it’s so cherry j-pop with seiyuu voices. There’s the usual piano and happy guitar playing. I guess the music isn’t that bad, but Yui kind of failed in this song because I can’t take her voice too much.
2. Dream a go!go! (ArrangementVersion)
Then Dream a go!go! starts and I instantly think it’s some kind of H!P tracks because it is full of idol stuff. So my initial thought that it’s pretty useless, but it’s actually quite catchy when it wants to be. The chorus is definitly the highest point of the song, but I’ll pass.
3. Motto, Yume, Miyou!! (CoverVersion)
I’m pretty sure that Yui is covering a Momoi song because I’ve seen this song a few times in Momoi’s discography. Right from the start it sounds quite upbeat and with the more dance-oriented synths, the songs arrangement reminds me of Tomoko’s Feb. stuff. Sadly, Yui’s vocals aren’t that great and it’s kind of hard to keep listening to the song. After a while, it just seems to be too sugary for me to comprehend fully LOL
4. Premonition Dream (ArrangementVersion)
Three tracks in a row that has to do with dreams? Premonition Dream clears up the sugary craze and keeps the dance style in the song. Now this is my kind of song and even made better because Yui doesn’t go into seiyuu mode, thank god. Actually, it might be a eurobeat song because of the heavier beats and finesse in the synths. This right now is my favorite track.
5. Shiny Road
Things go back downhill for our next track. Shiny Road is a bit more laidback than “Premonition Dream”, but Yui once again fails for the vocals in it. Some points of the song reminds me of space which is cool, but otherwise, it’s nothing special to note and could’ve been replaced.
6. Rose quartz (ArrangementVersion)
Our first true ballad, Rose quartz was thankfully good. There’s a bit of a chill factor and hearing a more pseudo-jazz sound is what she needed, especially with Yui’s vocals. The chorus was a little tough because she kept pinching her notes in a bad fashion, but the verses were where she shined the most. The latin guitar solo before the 2nd verse was so cool though. Good song overall.
7. Summer Angel☆
I didn’t expect Summer Angel☆ to start up with a low synth beat, but this song sounds just like a summer song would. It’s got those guitars and laidback kind of sound. Chorus though was pretty shaky in the vocal section. It isn’t too much, but the song has its good qualites.
8. To be continued…
At first, I thought we were gonna get another ballad, but it seems it’s the basic anime song. You know, ballad opening and fast upbeat stuff for the rest of the song. Once again I found myself loving the songs interesting arrangement and dance beats. I actually like this song a lot now.
9. Happy Day☆ (ArrangementVersion)
Then things just dropped into obscurity with our next track. Happy Day☆ probably has the worst use of her seiyuu voice and add the fact the song sounds very repetitive and just frantic. Even the synths couldn’t save the songs weird vibe. The chorus even felt terribly empty (that’s when you weren’t listening to Yui though…LOL)…Meh, not my kind of song.
10. The desert of time
Wow, the song has a very random opening. At first, I thought this would’ve been a ballad because desert and time would usually mean slow-moving. We got a mid-tempo pop track instead, but Yui really screwed up in the chorus by throwing that strange time sig change…or maybe it was a sudden change of singing style, I don’t, but the songs use of brass does make it stand out well. It’s alright, nothing amazing.
11. Thank you for us (ArrangementVersion)
We finally get that ballad, but it’s not what I call very good, or interesting. Yui is using her seiyuu voice and we all know ballads + seiyuu’s usually = FAILURE and this isn’t an exception to the rule. Her voice is so squeaky and annoying. Even the music seemed a little too boring than normal….yea….no…
We get a better representation of Yui ending off this album. It’s just as eurobeat as “Premonition Dream”, but it’s also quite ethereal in a sense. There’s a low synth bass beat pumping the songs fuel and the explosions in the chorus was pretty awesome. I gotta say for an album of meh songs, this song sounds pretty good.
Song of Avoidance
To think this was released at the same time as “PHANTASM ~End Prophecy~ baffles my mind to no end. This album has like a few good tracks while others were well, not my cup of tea. Maybe Yui shouldn’t do seiyuu songs and stick with more serious releases. *shakes head*
