1. Daredemo Lonely
Wow, I wasn’t expecting YUKI to slide in one more A-side before the album! Anyways, Daredemo Lonely sounds like a song I would expect YUKI to release at first but then things quickly change to this kind of funky dance track. Though I am surprised there’s so much repetition in this song especially in the introduction. It’s a pretty cool song though once YUKI starts to actually sing meaningful lyrics…though I still laugh at the ~ronery~…keep being Japan, Japan.
2. Daredemo Lonely -Seiho remix-
The remainder of the single is just remixes of the A-side which is a little meh but it is what it is. The Seiho remix of Daredemo Lonely takes things on a more chill note and then turns the song into a VERY weird remix to listen to. Like the melody is so punch-heavy and goes on the off-rhythm a LOT which makes things a little difficult to follow. Just a messy remix overall.
3. Daredemo Lonely -Yakenohara remix-
Wow, Yakenohara is a name I haven’t seen in a long time (if memory serves me, the last time I saw that was on Aira Mitsuki’s debut album). I already right from the intro, enjoy this more than the Seiho remix which wasn’t hard to decide on. Though it’s a bit more laid back and has a stronger bass appearance. It’s still somewhat barebones with just ~ooo’s~ and YUKI singing the song. I suppose it works?
YUKI’s actually closes out the “FLY” era with Daredemo Lonely and while it was a pretty quick shove out to hype the release, Daredemo Lonely is just meh. I mean the main track was OK if not a little too repetitive for me and the remixes were mediocre (loathed the Seiho remix). Even though the album is out soon, I just hope it’ll be better than I think.
