1. Tsubasa wo Kudasai
I’m not all that surprised that Beckii Cruell and her fangirls (friends) actually would debut with a very idol-like song in Tsubasa wo Kudasai (which is actually a cover track as well). It’s definitely known that the girls don’t speak true Japanese and throw their British into the mix as well is strange, but they oddly do harmonize enough that it’s not jarring. If it was hidden that it was Beckii Cruel, I’m pretty sure a few more people would actually come to enjoy it since it’s not that bad of a tune.
2. Tsuki no Kakera
However, things tend to start getting wonky when the B-side starts up. First of all, it is the first original song from the so I congratulate them for getting at least one original song in. Tsuki no Kakera is the opposite to “Tsubasa wo Kudasai” since it’s a mid-tempo slow pop track with the girls actually getting solo lines this time. It’s strange that Beckii and Sarah really don’t fit in the song’s sound at all while Gemma oddly enough does since she has quite a better tone than the other two. I kind of wish the other two dropped the cute for this song since Gemma did. I don’t know music is nice, but it just doesn’t feel right.
Since this is Beckii’s actual 3rd single but 1st with the Cruel Angels along, I thought the debut was of standard fare. I mean Tsubasa wo Kudasai is a little catchy and such while the B-side shows the more vulnerable side to the gals vocals…but I wonder if they’ll fix that for the next single.
