1. Himitsu ~Kimi no Soba ni Iru Tame ni~
Sadly, with Himitsu I’m quite as bored with it as I was with “Jimoto” but at least somehow the chorus stuck out for me through this song which is kind of a dim light in this hazy fog. I mean it sounds nice and all and could be sung by any R&B artist (true facts). It’s nice and it’s not the worst the trio has had…but it’s too reminescent to many of their other songs TBH.
It doesn’t help when the B-side is a piano/strings ballad which doesn’t seem to serve much purpose than just being fodder for the trio. It grows into another “Himitsu” for some reason which instantly got me to zone out and forget this song altogether. I do remember though the deepest singer impressed me once again…otherwise forgetful!
Gah, what a boring single this was IMO. Himitsu and Desperate really didn’t do much for me and it didn’t really do much for the trio either because they’re both rather throwaways compared to stuff from the “Shibuya” era…Oh well…
