1. Kizetsu Suru Hodo Aishiteru!

So it’s not a surprise that the re-release would open once again with the title track!  Like I said before on the preview single that was released, this song features a lot of Manaka, Risa, and Yumeno and well they were the leads so it wasn’t a big surprise, but the other members managed to sneak in with a line here and there.  I LOVE the rockabilly vibe though and it suits the more cuter vocals on top of the lower sounding girls as well!  One of the better stageplay songs we got this year!

2. Diana

While I was hoping for more than just 4 extra songs on the re-release, I suppose I had to swallow my pride and just deal with it.  The first new track is surprisingly a Kisora solo (which my make you fans tilt your head as she isn’t in Country Girls).  It’s addressed as a CG stageplay, but Tsubaki Factory did have some stagetime here (wow…three stageplays this year???).  I really enjoy the diner vibes that include saxophone…they’re really hamming it up aren’t they?  For a Niinu solo, she sounds decent…maybe a bit weak at times, but she wasn’t disappointing…overall a pleasant and simple track!

3. Okite

So next up is a track that’s sung between CG’s Chisaki, and Tsubaki’s Riko, Risa, and Kiki. There’s a cool swing vibe to the song and the track has a bit of a sly sound to it.  Considering it’s 4 members, the members sound pretty good together but by themselves, some are trying to hit a deeper sound (like Risamaru).  It’s an interesting song and some of the melodies are nice on the ear!

4. Rock ‘n’ Roll Tsukamitai

So we go back to older songs which brought Manaka, Risa, Mai, and Yumeno once again sharing that same genre that the main theme had which is great and it really has a cool 50’s rock ‘n roll sound that just works.  While it vocally doesn’t sound as clean or epic like the aforementioned track, it’s a got an awesome guitar solo so I can’t fault too much hahha.

5. Honto no Shimai Mitai

Another already released track, Honto no Shimai Mitai is a duet between Manaka & Chisaki.  While I’m a bit surprised Manakan was singing in a much higher range than normal and surprisingly harder to differentiate between her and Chisaki.  It does sound a LOT like “Shining Itoshiki Anata” (an older Country Musume song).  Though I like the arrangement, the performance felt a bit flat…but it was short so I really don’t know what to make of it.

6. Taman’nai Summer

Another song sung between 4 members, this time Yumeno, Mai, Nanami, and Musubu.  I really love Kishimon opening up the track in such a cool and epic way, but then the song kind of amps up the sugar a little bit.  While it does feel like something that would suit between “Boogie Woogie LOVE” and “Dou Datte Ii no”, Taman’nai Summer sounds a bit exciting outside of the similarities and the guitar solo is really cool too!  Really good stuff!

7. Yakusoku Shite ne

As I’ve said before, hearing Yakusoku Shite ne definitely sticks out from the stageplay because a lot of it comes off as an Enka-ish kind of song (maybe kayoukyoku?).  As a duet between the newest Country Girls members, Nanami and Musubu…I quite like the sound of them together, but Musubu really took it home especially breaking into two different vocal melodies.  Short, but neat track.

8. Kore ga Yume Nara

As the last track from the preview single, Kore ga Yume Nara is a duet between Manaka & Yumeno and it was obvious it’s that kind of romantic track.  While I think both of them did splendid vocal performances, the song is a pretty simple piano/strings ballad.  It’s Ok…

9. Seaside Bound

So the OST ends with the final new track and funny enough it’s sung between Risa, Kisora, and Ami.  Though it really feels like just Risa and the other two are just background vocalists.  The tune itself sounds good taking more of a beach vibe (like the Beach Boys).  It is really short though so it doesn’t leave much of an impression, but I suppose it’s nice.

Tracks Recommended

  • Kizetsu Suru Hodo Aishiteru!
  • Taman’nai Summer
  • Yakusoku Shite ne

Song of Avoidance

  • Kore ga Yume Nara

Going into the re-release of the Country Girls’ stageplay, I was a bit disappointed it only went up to 9 tracks (especially coming after Momusu’s OST).  I also wasn’t a big fan that there was just only 4 new tracks to come back to as well.  I have to say, this stageplay was running very closely to what Country Girls’ current sound is so it felt safe, but decent enough to pass by.  Songs were good overall, but not enough….It’s OK, but compared to “Thank you Very Berry” and “Higashi no Chihei, Nishi no Towa” they could’ve had more!
