  3. Mukaiawase
  4. Matataku Hoshi no Shita de <Anime Ver.>

1. Matataku Hoshi no Shita de

I wasn’t expecting the duo to put out something so anime-friendly with Matataku Hoshi no Shita de, but they did and it really has the same backbone instrumentation with strings and the melody just sounding so opening friendly.  It’s a bit of stretch because the band doesn’t usually sound this plain, but it also sounds quite refreshing when put next to their past singles.  That just doesn’t seem right, but I think I dig the song.

2. Gokujou Landing

Then again I feel the same about Gokujou Landing which is more or less similar to the A-side but with more emphasis on the guitars.  Sadly, this one didn’t leave the same impression on me since it sounds just a little bit too vanilla and Akihito doesn’t sound that great in the song either but it could just be me.

3. Mukaiawase

At least the other B-side of the single is a bit more different than the last two tracks.  Yeah, it’s an acoustic ballad and I think this song suited the art cover I used just perfectly.  It’s like one of those songs you would hear your friend playing around the campfire.  Akihito sounds pleasant and gives a much better vocal performance over “Gokujou Landing”.  Not bad, not bad.

PG’s 2nd single of the era, Matataku Hoshi no Shita de was a good single overall and is one of the better ones I’ve reviewed since I started reviewing them likewise.  The leading track is a bit formulaic but it stood out amongst their last couple of singles.  Mukaiawase was also nice if you’re looking for a good ballad from them.  As for Gokujou Landing…not bad, but it’s a clone of the A-side with meh vocals.  Not bad though, a smidge better than “Kageboshi”.
