1. CAT’S EYE

Wow, someone actually trying to make an anime theme sexy?  I’m not surprised by this move, but I think this really did well for the girls because it’s kind of disco/dance and it’s a great combination I think.  Problem is I think the girls are having a yelling duel in the chorus which shows the girls lack of control and their poor harmonization.  Otherwise the rest of the song is actually strong and sounds great but that chorus.  I guess they did an alright job….but who the hell spoke after the second chorus?  Her Engrish was lulzy!

2. ARABESQUE

Just like how the title describes, the song is pretty arabic in overall melody and sound.  Mina’s vocals by herself isn’t so bad, but she kind of has tone issues throughout but nothing too damaging to the song.  I do like the fact that the girls aren’t as high strung as they were in “CAT’S EYE” so that should tell you something.  Good B-side

3. WONDER WOMAN returns

As for the 3rd track, WONDER WOMAN returns definitely screams Namie’s music for the oddest reason (and yes I know MAX and Namie were one once).  It doesn’t really have a lot of anything to make it stand out and there;s some voice filters in it, but the interesting fact that it’s kind of beat driven and pretty sexy and sly as well.  Not too bad actually.

 

 

MAX’s 2nd single since Mina’s return is pretty good.  I liked the fact that all three songs are different from each other and pretty danceable otherwise.  CAT’S EYE is a nice cover, a little off in the chorus but pretty good, ARABESQUE brought some creativity out there and that came off nice and WONDER WOMAN returns is a nice dance number.  Hope to see an album soon!
