I’ve gotta say, this is UVERworld’s best song to date. The saxaphone was a nice fresh touch to the instrumentation, but the bass is just really hot. Although the saxaphone only appears in the introductory theme (which then appears at least two or three more times in the song), it really is the main highlight rather than a minor transitional instrument. I also like the guitar chords going on. Overall, I gotta say the instrumentation in this song is just perfect. Also, unlike the song they did for the Gundam 00 movie Qualia (I think), the transitioning between themes is so smooth that the melodies just melt into the other. This song isn’t just some A and B on repeat: there’s epic instrumental bridge themes and even a C part. It’s got a lot of contrast with melodic movement. There is a balance between moving and stagnant vocal melodies, as well as harmonic movement in the instrumental parts. The lyrics are really well written this time around (either that or the translations I found at Gendou.com are FANTASTIC!) My favourite part is the last stanza:

まだまだ消えるな 心の火を
まだ忘れたくない 胸の熱さを
まだまだ消えるな 心の火を
まだまだ行けるぞ  行けるぞ

It just wraps the song nicely and I like the repetitive consanance.

Oh and I’m gonna say that Takuya is really hawt in the PV.

Starry Sky

I sing for you
I think of you
I remember when I lost my mind
Remember when you catch my heart

You know for you
You don’t be shy
I remember when I lost my mind
Remember when you catch my heart

Today Starry sky…
let me kiss you
Today is starry
Come to find me
Starry sky

Song is extremely catchy, rhythm is extremly catchy, vocal line is extremly catchy. I really liked the extreme staccato moments leaving a millisecond of a pause between the melody. It does wonders to the song; makes it super exciting to sing along as well. The lyrics are uplifting and encouraging, which is kind of necessary for the anime.

Connect is the opening to the anime Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica. THIS ANIME IS FANTASTIC! I strongly, STRONGLY recommend Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica. It is one of the best anime’s this season. Yes it’s a magical girl show, but believe me, it is nothing you would expect from the genre. Backed up with a talented writer and a

This song is one of my latest favourites. The single having only been released for a couple of days, I was quickly impressed by the vocals of Tomatsu Haruka. It is pure and extremely smooth; celestial with the orchestra. The orchestra instrumental are extremly grand with the brass having most of the melodic harmony parts. A feeling which is lost in the pop version, which sounds very much like a Nana Mizuki song with the strings accompaniment. However, the rhythm of the melody and interesting lyrics keep it catchy rather than just a familiar tune.

The song is an insert from Star Driver which is a turning out to be a decent anime. At least much better than what I anticipated.

Goodbye Happiness

Fucked up PV with Utada pretending to make a Youtube PV of her own song…It’s like I’m not supposed to take the lyrics seriously or something.

Where Am I?
