1. Non stop road
When I first turned on Non stop road, I kind of felt this was going back to their first era with a breezy atmosphere (oh the puns)…I actually really like this song because it isn’t rough round the edges and it has a great feel. Even the 4 ladies sounds great together from Aki’s weaker vocals to the pretty ones from Ayahi and spaces filled in between by Minako and Haruka. It’s definitely my favorite A-side of the era.
2. Ashita e no Kaerimichi
The other A-side of the single is the ballad to seperate itself from the other ones (besides “Hazy”). While I don’t find this as great as “Non stop road”, it’s a pleasant enough song for me to be lulled by with the ladies more softer vocals. It’s a bit of a sleep-inducing song though but still pretty to hear.
It’s a little surprising that they’d wait as long as they to release this single after “HIGH POWERED” but it’s the fourth single of the era and it passes over it with a little hop. Non stop road is pretty good and is my favorite of the A-sides hands down and while Ashita e no Kaerimichi is a little zzz…it isn’t bad at all just demands a fully awake person lol. So, this was a solid single ^_^
