Kuroi Hitomi no Majuu
Hai’iro no Amaoto
1. Kuroi Hitomi no Majuu
Ahhhh, it’s been a while coming but we get a good song for an A-side (I guess this is the A-side at least). I found the opening to this song to be so epic and true to Kurose and KOKOMI before it lets loose and gets overall faster and more energetic. KOKOMI’s vocals have always been hit or miss for me and while she does try to support her voice the best way she could, she still has hiccups in notes. Other parts of the song were more Kurose based like the waltz-y middle and the edgy arrangement overall. It’s pretty good actually and surpasses a bunch of songs from “Angelrhythm”.
2. Shiroi Yubisaki
Sort of starting like “Kuroi Hitomi no Majuu”, it quickly turns into the hardest song off the single. Unfortunately with that comes with the poor KOKOMI vocals as well. I can sense a little bit of some randomness like filters being used and a little latin passage before the choruses. It does have its quirks but KOKOMI still can’t keep it together vocally.
3. Hai’iro no Amaoto
I do think Hai’iro no Amaoto is the slowest track off the song and it’s also one of the more straightforward songs they’ve done since it sounds like a good portion of Asriel’s slower indies stuff which might be good or bad, depending on your outlook towards them. Yeah, not much to really else say but KOKOMI’s vocals sound a little better here.
As it’s their 3rd indies single (I’m thinking an album with “Devils Lullaby” and “Aoi Hitomi no Hikari wa Kieyu” is coming soon), Tsune Shie no Madoi Same Shidoku is alright but nothing too special like the other singles. KOKOMI still has vocal troubles and Kurose doesn’t step outside of the box of his arrangements…yeah it’s seriously is what’s keeping them from getting better…
