1. Yume no Hajima-rin-rin
Toy piano opens up Yume no Hajima-rin-rin and well with the toy piano I thought the song was going to be the B-side but that doesn’t seem to be the case. In comparison to her other A-sides, this is kind of light and doesn’t have the usual Kyary twerks about it which is a nice change. I don’t think it ranks with the best but I guess it’s enough to keep herself going…but it’s kind of like “Kimi ni 100 Percent” in how I feel for it. There, but doesn’t do much for me.
At least Kyary totally switched it up B-side wise. Instead of a sugary cute song to fill that void, we have this ballad from Kyary and I kind of was surprised with it since it sounds so different in her current discography. It has some traces of something familiar, but I kind of enjoyed the hell out of this one…for a ballad, this turned out surprisingly well and stands out a LOT more than “Yume no Hajima-rin-rin”.
3, Mottai Night Land -extended mix-
Wait there’s not extended mix of “Invader Invader”? This is kind of shady! Anyways, we get an extended mix of Kyary’s last single and I’m still a bit lost on it, but it’s not a bad song at least and the extra 50 seconds doesn’t change too much and honestly I didn’t even think of looking for it. Overall, still a good song and it has a lot of good in it.
As the 2nd single of the era, Kyary slightly missed the mark with Yume no Hajima-rin-rin…it really sounds like an album song or something and in comparisons to 90% of her A-sides…it’s pretty weak to me. At least she saved the single with Slo-mo and boy that was a nice surprise from Kyary! As usual, the extended mixes aren’t necessary really and nothing totally mind-blowing changed within Mottai Night Land…so really isn’t much of an opinion here lol.
