1. Memorial days
As a theme for the GUNDAM series, I was kind of excited to hear Memorial days, though I wasn’t expecting something so quiet to come from KOKIA (especially after “New Day, New Life”). It’s really light and it has KOKIA singing in a higher pitch than I’m used to which is different but she sounds OK. It’s nice that more instruments join in after a while with just her and piano. I’m just not really into the song as much as her other A-side.
2. 0 Kara no Hajimari
The B-side unfortunately goes in the same direction as “Memorial days” as a ballad but she sounds a little better here actually. I’m stull bummed that it’s still essentially piano before underlying strings join in but I preferred this to be the leading song to be honest.
Boring single is kind of boring here and I had rather high hopes for this single to be honest. Neither Memorial days and 0 Kara no Hajimari really spoke to me and she clearly has better ballads in her repetoire to throw out so I’m rather surprised that it just didn’t work.
