Track Listing

  1. Kaze Tachinu
  2. Mayoi Ko
  3. Kama Kou Ei ~Tanpopo~

1. Kaze Tachinu

Ataru begins her 3rd era with a ballad.  Kaze Tachinu is a pretty heartfelt ballad and her vocals are pretty soothing to listen to.  There such a grand feeling to the song and it flows really well, including the minor synth passage the comes along to the song.  I just love how her voice just resonates with the track, what a great way to start the era.  At some points I hear her male sounding vocals which is really good, but definitly making Ataru stand out from the rest of the ballad forward singers.

2. Mayoi Ko

Our first B-side is definitly interesting.  It’s basically a mix of blues and folk and enka which is a daunting task, but Ataru passes with its intricate melody and strong vocals from Ataru.  It’s exciting for sure and just brought the fun side of her out, great B-side.

3. Kama Kou Ei ~Tanpopo~

Kama Kou Ei is also a ballad, not surprising.  Just only having a piano backing her up, Ataru showcases more of her vocals here and it actually was a good idea.  Pretty nice way to end the single off with a simple song. 

 

 

Ataru Nakamura is a force to be reckon with IMO.  Her voice has such strength and with the whole controversy behind her, she’s really stepped into being a lady pretty well, because this single was downright beautiful.  Kaze Tachinu and Kama Kou Ei were perfect examples of how ballads should sound like and Mayoi Ko showed a playful side to her music.  What a great single overall *RECOMMENDED*
