1. Kyouka Suigetsu feat. Maika
Hmmm one half of mihimaru GT collaborating with one of this year’s debut artists, Kyouka Suigetsu wasn’t what I was expecting knowing of miyake’s background with R&B. Maika does provide main vocals and of course her unique vocals make an impact against the interesting mid-tempo fueled song. It’s definitely along the lines of Maika’s “Kokoro” since it’s blatantly a ballad, but really good. miyake’s part is actually quite small against, but his rap is more into it than some past mihimaru GT ballads, so it’s a step up from everything. Good song overall, but having miyake being secondary to the song is a little weird.
2. BEGINNING feat. 55 MONKEYZ
LOL at the whole basketball setting opening up the B-side of the single. So I guess from the talking at the beginning, 55 MONKEYZ is a new group, but I wouldn’t know any difference. miyake has the more quieter vocals while 55 MONKEYZ has the more exciting vocals. This was what I was expecting from miyake since it’s more urban and hip-hop than “Kyouka Suigetsu”. It’s pretty catchy, but the other member of 55 MONKEYS kind of sounds weird…but still a good track.
Being the lone single before miCKun’s debut album, Kyouka Suigetsu is a good debut for miyake. Though the single to me is useless since both songs will be featured on the single, it’s still a solid release. One a ballad and the other hip-hop. I’m definitely looking forward to his album!
