A MIRACLE FOR YOU (2011)
A MIRACLE FOR YOU (2011) (Instrumental)
It has been a little while since Mika has released “STAR” and she did say she was taking a break from music because of illness. Anyways back to the main song on the single, Dear is unfortunately (for me) another ballad from Mika. I do like that instead of before this time she opted for a more guitar-ladened arrangement and it was a nice change after the last few singles. Her vocals sound better than it did as well which is a good sign for sure. Still, I want something different from a ballad next time.
2. A MIRACLE FOR YOU (2011)
As it was the final track off of Mika’s debut album “TRUE”, A MIRACLE FOR YOU was revamped as the B-side of this single. I don’t remember much of it when I reviewed it but I do remember that there was a pretty interesting gospel kind of feel with it. It’s nice to see that Mika resang that song and that there’s no extra vocals present as well. It’s a more bare-boned revision, but it’s nice.
I’m prolly going to be biased but I’m kind of getting tired of Mika ballads right now since the last few haven’t been really all that great in memory and such. Dear does try to switch the normal ballad formula by being more acoustically guitar-based, but it’s a ballad through and through. I did like Mika’s vocals though and it continued to the revision of A MIRACLE FOR YOU. The B-side was a nice treat, but took out a lot of what made the original nice to listen to…it’s ok I guess, but nothing jaw-dropping.
