Lia – Lorelei no Uta November 24, 2012

Filed under: Lia — solarblade @ 5:32 pm

Track Listing

  1. Lorelei no Uta
  2. Kokoro ni Kodoku Uta (IA)
  3. Lorelei no Uta (Instrumental)

1. Lorelei no Uta

Lia somehow seems to impress me with her music (though her last single was a major borefest)…Lorelei no Uta is back to the cool anison songs she’s been doing and I really found myself enjoying it all.  Lia is of course giving an amazing vocal performance here and together makes a winning combination!  Great leading track for sure!

2. Kokoro ni Todoku Uta (IA)

I’m not exactly sure what is this IA is (from what I’ve explored, I kind of guess this is Lia in VOCALOID form.  The arrangement of the song has also kind of changed but not by much which is fortunate.  To be honest, Lia (if it’s her) doesn’t sound much different either, though she is singing a bit louder.  Not bad, but was it necessary?

 

 

Her second single I’ve reviewed that’s tied to the Shining Blade series, Lorelei no Uta is definitely better than her first one “Kokoro ni Todoku Uta”, it just flowed better and Lia sounds amazing!  As for the second track, I don’t really understand why it’s there besides the tie-in but it was weird and unnecessary.  Though overall, it’s a good single!

Aki Misato – Shugoshin PARADOX

Filed under: Aki Misato — solarblade @ 5:18 pm

Track Listing

  1. Shugoshin PARADOX
  2. Dear my tears
  3. Shugoshin PARADOX (Instrumental)
  4. Dear my tears (Instrumental)

1. Shugoshin PARADOX

I kind of figured Aki would release a new mid-tempo and bright track with Shugoshun PARADOX.  I do like her soft vocals for some reason but the arrangement feels rather dated and a bit too slow in areas for me to keep my interest.  This is slightly better than her last A-side but it’s a small jump for me.

2. Dear my tears

The B-side of the single is also quite slow (even more than “Shugoshin PARADOX” which is a little disappointing but it’s whatever.  I do like some of the arrangement like the synths and acoustic guitar, but Aki’s airy vocals and tempo of the song managed to bored me as well…*yawn*

 

 

Aki’s third single is kind of a bust like her previous “Ai no Sei de Nemurenai” since both songs just seem a bit lifeless an Aki’s vocals aren’t really that exciting as well.  There’s just something about the single that screams lazy for me…
