No cry No more
SUNSHINE (2011 Ver.) (CD only)
No cry No more (Instrumental)
1. No cry No more
Oh? AAA is still hanging with Tetsuya Komuro? Ugh, I am really starting to dislike him meddling with AAA because now he seems to be running around with the same arrangements. With No cry No more my first thoughts were… *Why does this sound exactly like “Makenai Kokoro”?* Seriously, the way Misako opens the song up sounds like the chorus of their older track. About that…Misako doesn’t sound great opening the song and it shows. Either way, this song does not impress me one but even if Nissy and Urata sound good. This is just throwaway.
I really didn’t like the A-side of course so I was hoping ID would fix things up and it actually did since I prefer this A WHOLE LOT MORE than “No cry No more”. This is kind of feeling totally different than previous Komuro works and the group sounds great together and I was happy to hear Shuta and Shinji singing as well and they sound good in their own tones. Ok, why wasn’t this the A-side?!?
3. SUNSHINE (2011 Ver.)
I’m surprised there’s a new version of SUNSHINE on this single. If you remember it was the leading song off of the summer-themed single, “Natsumono”. Not much has REALLY changed in this new version, but there’s a different ending and some parts have slightly grown longer and I’m sure that they resang the song. It’s still one of those peppy summer songs like “Kirei na Sora”. It’s fun has energy and gives off such an exciting mood that you can’t help but enjoy it. New version or not SUNSHINE has always been a great song from them.
With one more single before the best-of is released, I must say No cry No more sucks and just the song by the way. Komuro really went lazy for this A-side and it shows since majority of their fans pretty thinks it sucks. ID is better since it’s a bit more refreshing to the ears and doesn’t have that dated Komuro feel tbh. I don’t see the reason for a new version of SUNSHINE but whatever it’s summer so I guess that was the excuse they went with and I didn’t mind since the song is still pretty good. I hope the next A-side trumps this one by a MILE!
