1. Koibito ga Santa Claus

I kind of like how the song starts up with that guitar riff and bounce.  As it’s a cover of a classic from Yumi Matsutoya, Koibito ga Santa Claus is actually a rather nice song from the group especially after their last single.  There’s just something about the song that really suits the holiday season and it’s really pretty.

2. Still ~Christmas version~

I still am kind of sour that Still was on the last single since it was useless.  With a new version of their debut A-side on this single, I was more than a little apprehensive and for good reason!  It feels like it was lazily placed on the single with extra jingle bells in the arrangement…definitely wasn’t needed.

 

 

FLOWER, I relaly don’t know what to think anymore about them it seens after they’re debut they aren’t impressing me as much.  I don’t think SONY knows how to deal with them either besides caking on Still as much as they can.  Koibito ga Santa Claus is a good cover though, I will admit that, but rehashing Still by laying on some jingle bells is just damn lazy…
