Porno Graffitti – Kageboshi September 23, 2012

Filed under: Porno Graffitti — solarblade @ 6:30 am

Track Listing

  1. Kageboshi
  2. Yagate Kanashiki Rock’n Roll
  3. Loose

1. Kageboshi

Well I kind of thought the duo would stay away from ballads for a while, but with Kageboshi, they return to it and it actually really quite compared to “Yuki no Iro”.  For its simplicity, I actually kind of liked the song quite a bit.  I mean it’s rare to see PG actually impress me, but it’s catchy and Akihito’s vocals are really stable and actually good.  Not bad, not bad.

2. Yagate Kanashiki Rock’n Roll

I was kind of surprised that the song has the words Rock’n Roll in it, but is far from it because it has a lot of synth horns and synths that overpower Haruichi’s guitarwork.  Despite that, the song fills in my need for a fun and strong track from the duo since it’s fun and feels like A-side material as well. 

3. Loose

As for the other B-side on the single, Loose would be the ballad that I would kind of avoid in this case because it’s oddly strange to say that this is even QUIETER than “Kageboshi”.  I mean the first verse is merely piano and water droplets.  Once Akihito gets further, the songs gets added strings and then Haruichi joins in the chorus and sings alongside.  It’s not as bad as I initially thought it would be, but the previous two tracks outweigh this one.

 

 

Kicking off a new set of releases, Kageboshi is quite the quiet single.  I mean Kageboshi and Loose are the ballads here and oddly enough worked nice as well.  I wasn’t disappointed at all.  At least Yagate Kanashiki Rock’n Roll was there to lift spirits up and it just really sounds good altogether.

    Funny, it’s actually my least favorite Porno song since Yuki no Iro.
