1. Chocolate

As the A-side, Chocolate takes a bit of a cuter, yet lighter route.  Though I can say that I can remember this one compared to “Message” at least and Leo’s voice sounds so pleasant and fitting for such a lighthearted song.  It might not stick on first listen, but its got a lot of charm to it and I found it to be the best A-side for the era.

2. LIVE at Zepp DiverCity Tokyo 2013.11.28 ~part 1~ (Second Dream~Last Stage~Fake Love~Shine~Ijiwaru na Kamisama~Wake you up)

Simply because Leo can’t get away from it, the rest of the single are performances of songs she did at DiverCity.  It seems like they’re full performances as well and since there’s 3 parts separated through the editions of the single, you’ll be pretty busy listening to all of this.  Part 1 is almost 24 minutes long.  Through all the songs, Leo sounds just so good and while most of the songs here are tunes I’ve totally forgotten about (except “Shine”), this shows off her skills and she sounds great through each performance.

 

 

*Won’t review the other two live tracks as I would probably not have much new to say*  Leo closes her sophomore era with Chocolate and there’s just something so cute and charming about the tune that I couldn’t help but love it!  Though the single kind of just falls with the 3 edition exclusive songs.  If you were to get them altogether, you basically have a live album right there and just kind of shadows Chocolate as a release.  Plus, some of those songs we’ve heard live already so it’s kind of redundant to hear.  Though I wonder what she’ll bring for “a boy”.
