Rokutosei no Yoru
Kanashimi wa Aurora ni
TWINKLE TWINKLE LITTLE STAR
1. Rokutosei no Yoru
Did YUI switch to piano again?!? Nah, we have a new artist here with Aimer and yes, her vocals have that same grittyness to it that YUI has, but a little more deeper and it slightly disappears when she opens up. It’s been a while since we got a ballad that was like this and I kind of enjoyed it but her vocals are ones you have to get used to. I’d say it’s pretty good for a debut A-side
2. Kanashimi wa Aurora ni
I prefer the second A-side actually more than “Rokutosei no Yoru” because Aimer’s vocals sounds a lot more pleasant and the arrangement has a LOT more color to it even though it’s still a ballad at heart. It’s got the right workings and it gets dramatic at the right parts as well. Yeah best one of the three songs.
3. TWINKLE TWINKLE LITTLE STAR
I’m kind of like hoping it wasn’t a cover of what I thought it was, but it is and it really makes me curious to why she covered such a song like this. Aimer’s English is quite good but she does pronounces things a little weird like ~diamond~. However, she doesn’t sing it like it should and repeats lines over and over and it gets damn annoying after a while.
Aimer’s debut single was quite light and wasn’t really supposed to be all that. Rokutosei no Yoru was alright for a debut, but not totally amazing. If you wanted that, Kanashimi wa Aurora ni was the answer and that should’ve been the lead A-side for sure. You can just simply pass TWINKLE TWINKLE LITTLE STAR because it’s just bad and kind of boring really lol
