Track Listing

  2. PIGEON-the green-ey’d monster
  3. Ao-iconoclast (instrumental)
  4. PIGEON-the green-ey’d monster (instrumental)

1. ao-iconoclast

For being a tie-in to BLAZBLUE, this was what I was oddly expecting, A string-based rock track from KOTOKO (which was oddly credited as kotoko).  I actually like this hard sound KOTOKO was going for here and I for sure enjoyed the 2nd verse where’s it’s just acoustic guitar for a moment.  She’s scored pretty well for herself on the first A-side for sure. 

2. PIGEON-the green-ey’d monster

The second A-side seems to be a little closer to what she normally does on I’ve Sound releases, but at the same time retaining the rock sound this single all over has.  For some reason though, this song actually showcases more of KOTOKO’s vocals moreso than “ao-iconoclast” which I guess means it’s an overall better song right?  I actually think so hahah. 



Is this a new era?  I’m not even sure but the first of two releases by KOTOKO this week, the one with the game tie-in, she’s pretty rockin’ here and I quite liked both tracks.  I do enjoy PIGEON alot more than ao-iconoclast because well the former really brought out the catchiness and stronger vocals from her.  Let’s hope “snIpe” is gonna be the better single.  BTW, this single is a first for KOTOKO as it’s not a release from I’ve Sound how interesting!
