1. Mille-feuille

It seems that TOKYO GIRLS’ STYLE is trying to pull away from their funk/discotheque tracks of the past and creating new paths in their musical styles.  Mille-feuille does have a smidge of that EDM sound that we had got with “Never ever” but it doesn’t go quite as hard as said song did.  I get a feeling of the group going cute with the song and a bit more poppy than songs previous.  If this is the new direction they’re going to take, I’m quite for it as it breathes new life to the quartet!

2. Partition Love -MODEWARP Mix-

Hmmm, though it feels like they went back and made a remix for Partition Love (an A-side released a little over 2 years ago).  Anyways, this new remix for the song to me doesn’t really strike quite as strong as the original arrangement.  I do like the beats with the strings giving it a classier vibe to it, it’s definitely one of their better remixes though as it really pushes the vocal melodies to the front.  Not bad, not bad!

3. Mille-feuille -Royal Mirrorball Mix-

Of course we have that ONE track that only appears on a specific edition of the single.  Though for the same expectations we have another RM remix to add to the HUGE collection.  Now, if you’ve been one to love their funky arrangements, Mille-feuille fills the gap and I like the amount of bass sprinkled through and not so much brass.  It does feel a bit slower than the original, but if this was chosen to be the main arrangement, I would’ve been OK with it.

While I did feel like “Shinkai” had very little fanfare on its release, I do think Mille-feuille did a pretty awesome job capturing my interest to the group.  The main song is cute, yet upbeat and quite differenet from what we’re used to from the quartet.  Even the remix managed to be decent enough to stand out from past remixes.  Add on the Partition Love remix and its a pretty good single, can’t wait to see what’s next from them after the single.

    Thanks for your review as always.
    Long time ago, a single has a side-A and a side-B, which are two new songs. I always expect two new songs from a single. I do not think a remix is a new song. Hope they work harder next time, no more remixes, because even any cover song of another artist is better than remix.
