1. Anata ni Deawa Nakereba ~Kasetsu Toka~

I’m still having trouble keeping my interest for Aimer since her last two singles haven’t really impressed me like her debut.  Anata ni Deawa Nakereba isn’t anything different from what she’s done but at least the chorus has a bit more push and it just keeps going from there which is SUCH an upgrade for her at this point.  It could possibly be her best A-side yet!

2. Hoshikuzu Venus

As the other A-side, I’m surprised she gave that to this song which was actually a digital single back in May.  I shouldn’t have been surprised that we ended up with another ballad somehow.  It kind of starts out like the A-side did with Aimer and light piano before it opens to a broader sound.  Aimer’s vocals are stuck on this light, whispery style and it just comes off as boring to me, at least the chorus brings it out better.  I would’ve like a different song than this but I guess it’s all right.

3. Breaking Up Is Hard To Do

Of course like every single she’s released, the third song is a cover song of an older WAY OLDER song from Neil Sedaka (the original was released back in 1962).  Aimer’s cover of the song is actually her best cover yet by being devoid of the piano and his a carefree pop/rock sound to it.  I still am not used to Aimer’s Engrish but she gives the song  extra charm. 

 

 

So many A-sides!  At least this is the final single before Aimer releases her first album.  I actually think this is the best single out of the four she’s released.  Anata ni Deawa Nakereba actually didn’t bore me this time and she used the same style she’s been using since her first single!  Hoshikuzu Venus is kind of boring but still consistent I guess (plus it was originally a digital single).  The cover though is definitely her best one out of the four she’s done from the singles.  It’s light and fun to listen to, plus Aimer’s English is getting better, but still wonky sometimes.  I just hope her album won’t be only ballads TBH >.>
