1. Mujuuryoku Aria
I was surprised hearing the A-side because it’s not like anything I’ve heard from Yui before which is a good thing. I really like the arrangement since it sounds a lot like something from a video game with a mix of Elements Garden as well which might be who produced this actually. Yui’s vocals are still a bit pitchy but she has a lot control in the song which helps this rather DDR-like song works its wonders. I’m pretty impressed with this and loving it more for the music!
2. Hane Saita Aozora
As the B-side of the single, Hane Saita Aozora is totally the opposite to “Mujuuroyku Aria” since it has more of strings/pop/rock kind of style to counter the A-side’s love of synths. I’m not too much of a fan for her vocals here since they’re more apparant to be cuter than it should be and it’s not a good thing. Luckily this isn’t as tragic as “Manatsu no Cielo”.
As usual it just seems that I only like half of Yui’s singles as in the case for Mujuuryoku Aria. The leading song was quite different and the way it flowed felt refreshing and worked with Yui’s vocals very well. Hane Saita Aozora though sounds like it could be from an album since it’s a song that has an ok arrangement but is kind of messed up by Yui’s pitchy vocals. I wonder when she’ll have another single were both songs are great!
