Tsukiakari no Michishirube ~Opening Edition~ (DARKER THAN BLACK Edition bonus track)
1. Tsukiakari no Michishirube
When I heard that Stereopony’s next A-side was going to be tied in with DARKER THAN BLACK, I was wondering if we were gonna get something as epic as “Hitohira no Hanabira” or “Namida no Mukou”, but we didn’t really. The song is a bit more lighthearted but that’s not too bad because it’s less stress for AIMI to push her vocals out. It’s still a pretty good track from the trio and I love the guitar riffs that I keep hearing.
2. Daidai Iro
A little more to their previous releases, but still lively, Daidai Iro is another song I really liked from first listen. It’s got a great Western feel to it and AIMI and NOHANA being the guitarist/bassist was a good combo for sure. It did feel a little short but this song is still really good.
However, fuzz gets the role of shortest song because it’s only 2:13 in length. It sounds pretty hectic and loud from them. There’s just a lot of SHIHO featured here and she gets to show off her drumming skills in a great way. Now if the song was a bit longer and more from AIMI, I think we could’ve had a great song, but whatever…take what we can get huh?
Stereopony is on a roll with their releases. Tsukiakari no Michishirube is definitely one of their better singles of course. This is since both the title track and Daidai Iro are catchy songs period. fuzz would’ve been good if it wasn’t for the short length…other than that the hard sound that carried was pretty shweet too.
