1. Wired Life
You know it had to take a lot to replace 2PM’s “Take off” from Ao no Exorcist and I’m holy shit in love with this song. I love the mysterious air about the song especially in the verses mixed with the cryptic ~cut the rope, cu-cut the rope~ lines. Granted, Meisa is still kind of vocally shaky especially in the chorus…but the Nao’ymt did a great job hiding it with the verses and the second vocal track that whispers. Still the chorus is pretty damn catchy and has a lot of punch to it…damn another awesome A-side under her belt.
2. UPGRAGE U!
The only actual B-side comes in UPGRADE U! which does take up a lighter and happier route which is cool and the synths and beat is still pretty much there. Meisa also decided to keep the filters along as well but it seems to rely on it more which is evident quite shockingly. It’s a step up after some of the previous B-sides she’s done in her career but there’s a giant gap between where I like this and where I stand with “Wired Life”.
3. One More Drama -PINGPONG REMIX remixed by dee.c-
Where have I seen dee.c before?!? Oh yeah! It’s the same remixer that did “LOL!”. Before dee.c’s remix of that song didn’t really change much to the song but added little quirks here and there. This time it feels like there was a lot that changed around (mainly around the lack of a heavy beat like the original and I feel like it has the same mysterious mood about it like “Wired Life”). However, the missing beats really throw me for a loop and I’m left wondering why it feels so empty for a remix. It’s alright, but if you love the original I should warn you this isn’t like the case with “LOL!”.
4. Wired Life (No Escape Remix) feat. Rin Okumura
The previous two songs were found on the normal editions of the single while this remix is found only on the anime edition. What I learned was that Rin is one of the characters from Ao no Exorcist and he kind of joins Meisa in the song but says the lyrics unlike Meisa who’s still singing it. It’s an unusual idea on paper and still in sound. As for the remixed part…there a lot of jerkiness to it but I did love the piano here! It is pretty much a strange remix, but I’m sure people that love Rin will love this fangasm XD
Damn, after “MAGAZINE”, Meisa has been really getting awesome A-sides and Wired Life is tied up there with the songs I LOVE from her which is a great side to come. UPGRADE U! is brighter of course and is so much better than “Go Ahead” off the last single so she scored well on that too. The remixes were OK at best, but nothing I’d keep coming to. One More Drama was nice but the stuff that made it amazing were gone and we were left with a half-assed remix while Wired Life’s was kind of messy and Rin kept pulling me out of concentration. I’d say go for the main songs and not the remixes here.
