Kaze to Kimi wo Daite -I’VE in BUDOKAN 2009 Live ver.-
L’Oiseau bleu -instrumental-
1. L’Oiseau bleu
Wow, this time we actually get an actual ballad from Mami this time and not an upbeat synth heavy track. I actually quite like this track since it does sound pretty sweet and calming and not messy like “Ame” was and even though the chorus does bring out tone issues, L’Oiseau bleu is pretty nice and easily listenable. Nice relaxing track from Ms. Kawada.

There’s a reason why there’s a live version here and it’s because previous to this single it was featured with other I’VE SOUND members like MELL, KOTOKO, Kaori Utatsuki, and Eiko Shimamiya. All of them had new tracks to give out as well as a live version of one of their tracks. Well, Mami’s track comes from the compilation album of theirs called “OUT FLOW”. Listening to the live version sounds quite nice as the song sounds a bit rockish (haven’t heard the original). You hear the crowd chanting along and had sweet energy. Mami’s vocals also sound nice as well. Good live
So Mami’s 3rd single changed things up a bit. Instead of a high energy synth fest, we get a slower track from her and it turned out nice. The live version also was a nice treat since we barely get that from the I’VE SOUND artists, so it was great to hear something live. Good single, dunno if it beats “masterpiece” but good single.
