1. Rock you!
The only original song, Rock you! does stand out to be differet from the previous A-sides by being a little more angsty and driven but after that awesome rock riff that opened the song, it seemed to groove into another “Limited addiction” and “Liar” which is slowly getting to me but not so much because it’s enjoyable. I will say that the five girls sound great though so it surpasses “Liar” in that repect. Otherwise this is a pretty good song though I hope they broaden out their sound after this.
2. Onnaji Kimochi -YMCK REMIX-
How many versions of Onnaji Kimochi do we really need? I mean we have the original (their second single), the Mirrorball remix on the single, the Kids version on “Love like candy floss”, the Chinese version off their debut album and now a YMCK remix? Last time we seen YMCK they remixed the group’s song, “Kodou no Himitsu” and that was pretty damn good. However, I’m not too big of a fan of their take on Onnaji Kimochi. The melody plus the 8-bit melody over it just don’t fit together and kind of comes off as a little more annoying than great. I think there’ll be fans of this but I still think YMCK’s first remix for the ladies was MUCH MUCH BETTER!
3. Rock you! -Royal Mirrorball Remix-
Getting into the remix for Rock you!, just like the original, the remix does take the song in a more serious style and has a rather deeper synth melody compared to previous RM remixes. I actually kind of enjoyed the remix a lot more than many other RM ones and while the original tops it, this sounds great and works with the melody.
4. TGS16 Senkou Ongen
If you’re a follower of the group, you should know what this is. To others this is actually a preview track of an album song. TGS has done it before for their first album with a couple songs. This Senkou Ongen is a preview for “Regret.” which is an album track for “Limited addiction”. Not much to go by for this review as short it is…but it gives me hope for the album now LOL.
Closing the “Limited addiction” era, Rock you!/Onnaji Kimochi -YMCK REMIX- is alright but I think of the singles, this was the weakest as a presentation. I do like Rock you! and its remix but is weaker than half of the A-sides (only better than “We Will Win!” and “Liar”). The Onnaji Kimochi remix was kind of bad and just wasn’t necessary IMO and the Senkou Ongen was just a teaser, not enough to determine the review. At least next week is the group’s sophomore release.
