1. Taiyou no Megami

I love the piano intro for Taiyou no Megami for sure and was hoping it would’ve been the primary melody, but it becomes a mid-tempo song.  I do love how it opens up in the chorus into this dramatic song and honestly,  that’s really all I can remember is that chorus because I don’t find the verses very memorable in the least.  Overall, it’s a better song than “Message” was, but still not at the levels of the “LEO” singles.

2. Kimi ni Todoke

The first B-side was actually released back in July.  So it does come off the backs of “LEO” so it does have that sound to it which caught my interest a lot faster than “Taiyou no Megami”.  I do like the chanting vibes out the after-chorus and Leo sounds really sweet and powerful which always is a good thing.  I actually am happy with this track and would’ve preferred it as an A-side.

3. Who’s That

Sweet, we finally a pretty edgy song from Leo (well in comparison to the other two tracks).  I really like the flow of the song and really liking the guitar licks in the tune.  It sounds like a tune that would go over pretty well performed live.

 

 

As the second single of the era, Taiyou no Megami is definitely a step-up after “Message” even though the A-side isn’t too well received by me when compared to Kimi ni Todoke and Who’s That in which both songs were left a great mark on me.  Can’t wait to see what’s next in store from her.
