1. Jingle Girl Joui Jidai

As this is the traditional christmas A-side, Jingle Girl Joui Jidai kind of sounds like an oldies tune with the way it was handled.  It doesn’t seem there’s solos to be found here which is a little disappointing but I do like the catchy sound of the song which was quite calming and fun.  Though as a christmas song, it’s a little meh. 

2. Yuki ga Furu Kara…

Another winter song?  Yuki ga Furu Kara… is almost similar to “Jingle Girl Joui Jidai” since it’s more along the lines of those oldies songs.  At least this one sounds like there was more effort put into this.  There’s a lot of beats in it which keeps things interesting that’s for sure but still rather underneath the last single.

3. Wanna Dance!

At least we get something different in the 2nd B-side of the single.  Wanna Dance! is a bit more danceable and kind of has a groovy feel to it that I love.  Plus it seems the members of Tomapai sound more into it here which is funny I think.  It’s lively and the brass give it a great sound throughout.  It’s my favorite off the single!

4. Nanairo☆Namida -snow bossa remix-

Like the last singles, we close the single off with a remix of the previous A-side.  The new version of Nanairo☆Namida fits the theme of the single and turns our upbeat dance tune into a much lighter affair.  I love the original and the new version kind of strips what was good.  It’s alright and the wintry feel is nice…but the other two winter tunes are better.

 

 

Oh Tomapai…this single really kind of sucked XD.  I mean from the awesomeness that I heard from “Nanairo☆Namida”, this was a big drop and it’s a Christmas-themed single which is right there kind of meh as it is.  I’d say that Wanna Dance! is the best since it was pretty catchy and done well on all accounts.  Next OK song is Yuki ga Furu Kara… since it’s wintry done kind of nicely and it does have a catchy beat.  Jingle Girl Joui Jidai and the remix of Nanairo☆Namida were just kind of boring and not very memorable to be honest.
