1. NAMIDA ~Kokoro Abaite~

Could there be anything more deceiving than a song like this?  I mean from the covers I could’ve guessed it was going to be dark…but dark electro-pop?  Yeah, I actually enjoyed the song a lot because of the mysterious vocals coming from Riisa and then her stressful and angsty vocals through the chorus (though she does need to work on that).  I’ll admit those verses are hot as hell.  I’m definitely sticking to her!

2. ZEBRA QUEEN no Theme

As for the B-side since it was Riisa’s role in the movie as ZEBRA QUEEN, the theme for the character isn’t as dark as the A-side but it’s still very danceable and kind of a lot of interesting ideas into one song.  It’s quite as catchy and I think Riisa’s vocals are a bit stronger IMO.  Equally as good B-side.



While I know that ZEBRA QUEEN is a one-time deal shindig, NAMIDA ~Kokoro Abaite~ is actually a pretty awesome single and a great debut for Riisa Naka.  I hope this isn’t the only thing she does because she’s got some edge in her voice that I can enjoy totally.
