1. Tasogare Love again

Ahhhh, I’m not sure after the amazing “Ai no Mama de…” It’s hard to really follow-up with something just as amazing.  Tasogare Love again, it’s another ballad from Junko and features a lot of accordion and there’s even BKGD vocalists as well.  I kind of like the mid-tempo sound and at different points it sounds a little bit like a waltz in the chorus.  I’m a sucker for that kind of stuff, so I naturally like this track.  Junko’s vocals are as usual quite nice sounding as well. 

2. Ai no Uta Uri

Our B-side, is a bit more upbeat, but there’s something about it that just screams perfection to me.  It’s got a Russian sound, acoustic guitar playing, and seriously the different areas of music is quite intriguing and surprised that it’s kind of catchy as well.  Even though it doesn’t ave a clear climax to it and basically stays at the same pace most of the song it’s a good B-side.



I know this isn’t “Ai no Mama de…”, but this was a great single to start up a new era for Junko here.  Tasogare Love again basically made enka sound a bit waltzy for the era and she pulled it odd gracefully.  Ai no Uta Uri on the other hand kept a good punch in the music and the song sounded ethnic and nice.  I think she’s still got the flame to take over Oricon again.
