Pretty awesome to see Mika lending a song to the Resident Evil franchise of movies ^_^.  Though I wasn’t sure what to expect, the song is a ballad and suited because it’s an ending theme.  However, this is ballad that I’ve fallen for quite strongly.  It’s dark and gloomy, but also dramatic in a way which all rolled up in a nice package with one of Mika’s strongest vocal performances.  I haven’t been this impressed for quite a while so I’m happy this is here!


The first thing I thought of when SUPER WOMAN started was “CANDY GIRL” because it has this sly and soulful charge but at the same time, it’s playful and cool and once again has some pretty strong vocals from Mika.  I like it and definitely sounds stronger than the mentioned song.


So we have a remix of Dear which was a couple of singles ago and when I heard this I immediately thought of the “Over Load” remix from that single.  The difference is is that this was originally a ballad and it was taken up to this island-friendly latin mid-tempo.  I don’t remember Dear much to begin with, but I was happy they they made it more bright and upbeat.  Kind of basic, but not bad for a remix.



After the rather strange “LOVE IS ECSTASY”, she took more time of and started to do more acting (recently for the Resident Movie this A-side is tied to).  Coming backm she released a really solid ballad in Ashita Sekai ga Owaru Nara and definitely stands as one of her better songs in recent times.  SUPER WOMAN is good too and definitely sounds a lot more cooler as a sultry song than “CANDY GIRL”.  The Dear remix is OK, but nothing amazing.  Overall, I liked this single a lot more than a good portion of her previous ones!
