Time Of Destiny
Arifureta Nichijou wo Sutete
Stay in my heart
flower of youth
We start this album with the oldest track which was a bonus track found in the “DatII” era. It still is great song and made a great opening. misono still sounds great singing with this and the band as well. Cool
2. Time Of Destiny
A weird start to our 1st new track. It sounds like very classic like 70’s pop or something like that. I blame it with the keyboard just because it has so many different sounds to it. misono this time sounds a little off here but then again her voice is in a higher register. I got to say though this is a pretty catchy pop track.
3. Arifureta Nichijou wo Sutete
OMG, now this is what I’m talking about. The music is so much fun and full of life, add some cool synths and a pretty good guitar riff and we get this awesome track. misono sounds pretty serious in the song and it corresponds with everything else thats going on. Though it’s shorter than I wanted it to be it’s probably my favorite song on the album so far.
Sentence is like what the later songs will sound like mostly. Slow opening before opening to the main melody and then starting with the lyrics. I enjoyed the guitar mostly in this song with its guitar riffs. misono sounds a little more calmer than “Arifureta Nichijou wo Sutete” but it doesn’t bother the song at all. The synth line is pretty catchy too. Another great track.
5. Stay in my heart
As one of the singles, this song was a good choice for a single, but I would’ve put “Sentence” as a single instead. It’s a tad slower but in production it’s actually a pretty good song. Though it’s weird to hear piano as the verses and everything else is the chorus. Still it’s a lot of people’s favorite song from this era.
I wished it was a full song. All it is is just a piano interlude into our next song. Though I do like how nice the interlude is and its simple. Nice and it ends like immediatly into
7. Losing myself
Right into this very in your face track. I mean it’s got some pretty aggressive strikes from the keyboard. Though I found myself annoyed with those strikes after awhile. At least it isn’t covering misono much. She’s kind of filling in the gaps when it doesn’t strike which is so good. Not the best track but I like misono here.
8. FUNNY DAYs
Weird idea for a song to have such an odd beat and melody. Eventually the song gathers its momentum and we’re left with a guitar riff and drums playing with misono in her normal range. It’s actually not that bad of a song. The chorus is pretty sweet and how she ended the chorus on a minor note was funny. Hence the name right?
9. Morning glow
A more haunting piano interlude. Morning glow I enjoyed more as an interlude than “Oval”. Though I don’t know why they would have two in the first place only after two song in between. Funny how it’s like a long opening to our next track.
I didn’t notice the song changed into “grow” until I heard misono started singing in this rock ballad. There’s some beautiful strings in here and it made the song so pretty to listen to. A very great ballad comparing to alot of the past tracks. Everything seemed to flow well in the song even the bridge was was lyrically faster. Awesomeness.
I found it to have naturally near the end a pretty good idea beacause I couldn’t have thought of a better place to put it. As it is another single I thought this was a pretty good song comparing it to “Stay in my heart”. The only thing I griped was how they ended the chorus. It just didn’t seem right there. Other than that it was a pretty good song.
12. flower of youth
To end the album we have this odd pop ballad. It’s slower than “naturally” but there’s like some strong sounds filling the song. Though I kinda found this song to be on the boring side of things. misono also did too, she doesn’t didn’t really sound like she wanted to do this tune. Oh well…..
Song of Avoidance
dat’s first full album was OK at best. There were some great songs and there were songs that needed some work on. I do like how at that time no one really sounded like them at all. They still today sound so different from any other acts out today. Wished they reunited.
