1. Fate Seeker
It has been quite awhile since we’ve heard a m.o.v.e single right? Fate Seeker actually has a pretty strange sound to it since it’s like a mix of funk and electronica but with strings as an added touch which is a good thing. Though I’ve found it weird that Yuri’s vocals are heavily auto-tuned to the point where it gets somewhat annoying. I guess it’s alright for now, for jeeze I can’t take auto-tuned Yuri seriously. motsu kind of just flew in the background, but he has his moments by the way.
2. BLUE TRAIL
BLUE TRAIL is a little bit closer to what the “Humanizer/SYNERGY” eras were all about and I kind of like this setting a whole lot more better than damn “Fate Seeker”. Taking out the funk as well, all we get is a strong synth-based eurobeat song and it’s not bad since Yuri is also not under the auto-tune. motsu is also stronger as well giving the sameish arrangement for the song but it’s definitely a strong song.
3. Fate Seeker (t-kimura’s Electro Remix)
So we get two remixes for Fate Seeker, the first being a remix from ex-member t-kimura who still after all this time still hangs around with the now duo. This remix for Fate Seeker takes the original and gives a slower rhythm and beat, but retaining this rather deja-vu feeling from their early days which is cool, but Yuri is still under that crap auto-tune. I think here it’s worse since it’s so robotic and meh sounding. It’s nice, but c’mon really…
4. Fate Seeker (motsu’s Hip House Remix)
The 2nd being remixed by the MC of the duo, motsu’s take on the song is definitely continuing this electro/funk sound which actually makes more sense hear than the original since it’s like a classic sounding m.o.v.e. However, Yuri’s vocals are trying not to be under auto-tune, but sadly kind of misses because it’s still rather heavy on it.
OK, why did it take two months for Fate Seeker to leak??? Anyways, as the lone single for the “Dream Again” era, Fate Seeker could’ve been really nice if there wasn’t auto-tune involved. It is the initial reason why all 3 versions of the song were really icky to listen to. The only shining song off the single was the B-side, BLUE TRAIL and it’s sad to see that the song didn’t make the album’s cut. Srry m.o.v.e this single was pretty meh.
