Ikimono Gakari “Planetarium”
Earlier in the year I posted about their other single “Hana wa Sakura Kimi wa Utsukushi”. Ikimono Gakari’s latest single “Planetarium” definitely surpasses “Hana wa Sakura Kimi wa utsukushi” and is one of their better ballads. This song is amazingly beautiful. I cried listening to it cause it just felt so reassuring for some odd reason. Even the PV is a good watch. Kiyoe’s voice fits the song very well and easy on the ears. The piano gives a nice starry like quality, and the the strings make me feel like I’m soaring in the night sky, which I find very calming for someone who’s angsty on a daily bases. Unlike most of Ikimono Gakari’s other songs, this song doesn’t have a harmonica. Although I’m not complaining because the harmonica would just change the tone of the song completely. Overall, great song to listen to.
Also, WordPress is toolish for not letting me post the song file.
