Oh crap….6 minutes long? I’m surprised by how long the song is, but honestly this song is pretty sweet musically…I wish I could say the same for MELL’s vocals as they begin pretty strange and seiyuuish and stays like that for a most of the song. At least the chorus fixes it up quite a bit and then I’m falling in love with it again. It isn’t as mysterious as like “no vain” but the synth+guitar is sweet enough for me. Could be my favorite between the 3 I’VE artists.

Hey, I KNOW THIS SONG XD. Anyways, I love MELL’s enthusiasm in the song and between the three artists, the audience was so much more alive and with the song which is awesome because this is like MELL’s most well-known and IMO coolest song besides “Red fraction”. This was better than the rearrangement back on “MELLSCOPE”. Sweet. By the way, this is the only song not from “OUT FLOW”, rather it came from an earlier release “regret” which came out in 1999….wow!
Of the three single: this, “L’Oiseau bleu” and “snIpe”, this was easily the best. Both tracks were great, Kara no Tsubomi’s slight electro sound mixed with MELL’s vocals always works and the fun-sounding live version worked as well.
