1. Crazy Kanzen na Otona
After “Kono Machi”, I was curious as to why °C-ute was releasing a new single so quickly after that fiasco and truth be told Crazy Kanzen na Otona was just what I needed! The song is a lot like “Kiss me Aishiteru” in the way the style is very synth-driven and pretty quick paced as well. Add in a touch of sexy and smokiness and this song is just really cool to listen to all the way. Add in that everyone sounds amazing in this song (even Nakky and Maimai sound good!). Definitely another °C-ute song that I ended up loving to death!
2. The☆Treasure Box
The B-side found on most editions of the single, The☆Treasure Box would’ve been such a good if there wasn’t such an annoyance repetition of that whole ~OI OI OI OI OI~, god damn is that fucking annoying! Taking that out, the song has more focus on the guitars and it kind of mixes the group’s rockin’ feel. However, the feeling of the song is so muddled with that arcade fighter grunt that makes this song nearly impossible for me to enjoy!
3. Chikyuu Kara no Sanjuusou
Then two editions have a different B-sides but the group is split. Maimi, Airi, and Chisato take the first song and I’m kind of stuck on what genre it’s supposed to represent because it’s poppy but the melody has touches of country and doowop almost. Add in the interesting melody the girls are singing together and it sounds more country for some reason xD. The song is a bit strange, nothing too spectacular, but it’s not bad of a tune…just plain xD.
4. Watashi wa Tensai
Of course Nakky and Maimai would get their own sugary cute song in the form of Watashi wa Tensai. I mean Nakky sounds great in this setting which is pretty strange to listen, but Mai sounds a tad nasally for this cutesy synthpop song with a strangely slow chorus line xD. I mean it fits the two quite nicely, but like the previous track…maybe a bit forgetful.
5. Kanashiki Heaven (Suzuki Part Ver.)
So remember this song from “Aitai Aitai Aitai na”? Yeah the surprisingly awesome Chisato and Airi duet…well the song was split half into their solo parts and hearing them is quite strange. Airi of course has the lower melody and hearing her sing solo is kind of interesting. Of course, the song feels like it went down a couple levels on the scale to suit Airi’s vocals. Not bad of a solo take.
6. Kanashiki Heaven (Okai Part Ver.)
So of course, Chisa get the higher ranged version like the original and her higher pitch is actually good but her unique stylings kind of hinder some parts but the fact she says ~seventh heaven~ clearly is shocking. I like Airi’s version just a bit more, but this wasn’t so bad!
°C-ute seems to really be kind of lost on this single. I mean sweet Crazy Kanzen na Otona is an amazing track from them and really gave off such a sexy vibe to it that I just really loved that about it. Also it was really nice to see Kanashiki Heaven split in half so we can her the song sung by the main two. The rest of the single was just ugh. I mean both of the split up groupings weren’t really anything groundbreaking nor interesting and The☆Treasure Box was just annoying as hell…but could’ve been great had it not been for the annoying chants! I still think “Aitai Aitai Aitai na” is the best single of the era tbh.
