1. “Suki” to Iu Kotoba
It seems that Sayuri wanted to go back to what she did pre-“Kimi ga Iru Kara” with the whole light R&B style. I mean it’s not Kana Nishino, but it’s actually relaxing to listen to and Sayuri’s vocals are getting better to listen to as well which is great. I thought the background vocals were an odd but nice touch. It’s definitely a ballad I could keep listening to for a long time and that’s good.
2. I Wanna Cry…
For a song that should come off as a ballad, I was surprised it was an upbeat tune here. I like her voice still since she has the right emotion going on for it and a lot of English as well. I really do enjoy the pop/rock style going on and it makes a worthy B-side for this single!
I was impressed a lot by Sayuri for her second single of the era. There is just something that clicked that didn’t happen with “Sunao ni Narenakute”. This single was what I needed to like her again and it worked. I like how sweet that A-side. Even beter was how nice the B-side came off. One of the better singles this year!
