1. Good Boy Bad Girl
As the leading A-side, Good Boy Bad Girl seemed to really have left the rockabilly vibes of the last couple singles behind and gave us a straight up pop/rock song to deal with! Seeing the group moving back into something a little more straightforward musically, I was enjoying the simplicity more! As it seems a lot of the song is in duet lines but all the girls have solos (the best belonging to Funakki, once again). Easy song for them and while it doesn’t rise above past A-sides that I loved, it’s a decent track.
2. Peanut Butter Jelly Love
Opening with a cute intro from Momoko, PBJL takes us back to some of their cuter songs (especially giving me a bit of a “Koi Dorobo” & “Namida no Request” vibe). I found there was some guitar elements here as well, but the tune is just overall cute all over the place. I found myself tapping my toes along the arrangement and the whole group just sound bright and lively!
With this being Momoko’s final single with the group, I have to say that she didn’t quite have much spotlight, even though she was just a overseer to the group and trained the members. Like I said, the rockabilly vibes of the last two singles are absent which is a nice break from it and both songs are OK, if not a little above average for them. With an audition being leaked (not officially announced yet), I can only wonder what’ll be next on the horizon (hopefully an album showcasing Momoko’s time with the group (if not a little of Uta & Manaka too)).
