Chiaki Kuriyama – Tsukiyo no Shouzou November 24, 2011

Filed under: CHiAKi KURiYAMA — solarblade @ 3:39 am

Track Listing

  1. Tsukiyo no Shouzou
  2. Seishun no Mabataki

1. Tsukiyo no Shouzou

I guess Chiaki and Shiina Ringo liked their first collaboration together that they made another with Tsukiyo no Shouzou.  To be honest, while I enjoyed “Oishii Kisetsu” a lot, this one sounds altogether a lot stronger and it seems that Chiaki has focused more on her vocals which were a lot better than most of the songs from her “CIRCUS” album.  I turned out that I ended up loving the A-side.

2. Seishun no Mabataki

The B-side might come as a surprise since Seishun no Mabataki is lowkey and slower.  I wish Chiaki’s vocals didn’t really use the auto-tune in some of the places in the song since it really takes away from the experience of a ballad (which we haven’t really had since “Ryuusei no Namida”).  It had the potential to be great but the unneeded use of vocal manipulators messed up the song for me.



I’m so happy that Chiaki is continuing a music career and I’m quite happy she worked with Shiina Ringo once again!  Tsukiyo no Shouzou is probably her best A-side since “Ryuusei no Namida” but that’s more than likely because she didn’t sound as catty as usual…thank god.  Seishun no Mabataki is mostly a nice ballad from Chiaki, but I want an auto-tune-less version of the song…it would do wonders!
