Hopefully it'll be better than her previous single. Sad

Yea, her last single wasn't too hot. I don't think she can get much worse than that. I do like it but its definitly not my favorite.

Anyways, I've seen a few reviews for the title songs on other sites recently. Based on that radio promotion she did. They all said it sounded quite good.

I think "MUSIC" is an upgrade from "Koisuru Piretti", but it's still quite average compared to "Wo Ai Ni" and "Atashi no Machi, Ashita no Machi". Her voice sounds a little off here and then. It's not too bad though. I thought the PV was pretty cool. Meow

Yea, it's definitly a step up, not her best, but far from being her worst Nod I'd say though this is one of her best PV's for sure Laughing

Thanks for the video Ashlie Meow Boogie


The song is nice...I can't really difference the verse and the chorus...( Confused Laughing
But it sounds really cool, I like the guitar riff a lot.
And the PV is awesome Meow

I wonder if it's the full version of the song....a solo or interlude between the choruses would be good on it...

That's why I thought the song was a bit average at first. I can't find a climax nor a peak or something like this. Laughing
But after watching the PV like 2 or 3 times the song grew on me. Looking forward to the single now.

I agree, it feels like the song is a bit too short and... flat-ish. Confused Maybe its like evergreen and the PV only features part of the song? hopefully? Confused

Oh, and here are thumbnails of the covers

CD+DVD



CD only




Anyway... unrelated to MUSIC (or so I think), Hitomi mentioned on her blog this week that she has been in the studio recording again. And if I recall corectly I believe she said she was already finished with it Shocked Since I doubt that she's still working on the MUSIC single, maybe its another new single or album on the way? Pleased

She also said that practice has started for the PINK SPIDER musical shes in. Boogie And here is Hitomi at some sort of promotional thing for the musical (I'm loving the long hair Love ) and also as she'll be seen in the play. Meow

Hitomi as Meru

i had a funny dream last night.
i had a party of some kind at my place, and for some reason Hitomi-chan showed up! Boogie
the music was a bit loud, but we could talk anyway, and apparently she was fluent in english, heh. since i was dreaming i was a bit confused (as you are when you dream sometimes) and couldn't pin point who she was until i remembered it and my face shone up and i said i was a big fan of hers. and she hadn't even introduced herself to anyone by name, let alone saying she's an artist, so she was very surprised. so i started looking for my albums, but since i'm in the middle of moving out, i have packed down all my albums in boxes (both irl and in the dream). so instead i pulled out this big ass poster from her Symphony era (i DON'T have this irl, unfortunately) and asked her to sign it... and then she began to cry from surprise and being overwhelmed. Smile and then i woke up.

oh, and i just listened to MUSIC for the first time.
damn, i like it! Smile really good PV too. i haven't listened to the other songs, but it might be her best since Atashi no Machi, Ashita no Machi (which is her best single, period, so that's no shock...).

i hope her sales are better this time around, according to english wikipedia Koisuru Pierotti only sold around 600 copies... O_o

^ cool dream Laughing and i know about the sales for Koisuru on the english wiki cause im the one that updated it Laughing

dispite being better than Koisuru Pierotti (plus havin an awesome PV) the single didnt chart well at all.. No i dont know the numbers but it only reached 200 on the charts... Crying Crying Crying

and im still waiting for my copy to arrive in the mail, so i havent heard the b-sides either. i would be so ecstatic if it arrived the same day Tangled comes out on dvd (march 29th), it would make it a double-y awesome tuesday Boogie but it usually takes about 2 weeks for me to get my stuff from YA :T and since they just shipped this past thursday... i still got two weeks to wait... T__T

Ok so surprisingly I actually did recieve my copy of MUSIC today (talk about shock and awesomeness) Laughing

So I've listened to it a few times now and I guess I've finally developed an overall oppinion of the single... It's good.. but not great. :.

While it is definitly a step up from Koisuru Pierotti, it pales in comparison to Wo Ai Ni and Atashi no Machi. Overall this single's sound is a bit flat, theres no real high point that makes you stop and think 'huh, nice' and the songs all sound a bit too similar for my liking, guess thats how some producers work though. hmm

MUSIC is a nice up-beat rock song, my biggest problem with it is her voice is a bit to low for music arrangement, I have to strain my ears a bit too much understand what shes saying. And honestly you cant really tell exactly where the verses end and the chorus begins Laughing

ROLLING is about the same. While her voice is stronger in this one, the lyrics doesn't really wow. Dispite most likely being the best 'quality' (i.e. sound and tempo wise) song on the cd, it just doesn't really catch me.

CALL ME, strangely, is my favorite song on the single. It's a "power"-type-sounding ballad of sorts. And while the lyrics is a bit lacking in length (the song is 4 minutes long though) the 'one more time' part is extremely catchy, and I absolutely love the 'wow' feeling I get when she raises her voice for second half of the chorus. My only problem is her voice is a bit sqeaky (as I've noticed she's become prone to doing recently with songs), the song would have been more AMAZING if she had used her "mother's car"-style voice for this song. Love

So like I said, good but not great. I wish she'd go back and work with the guy that produced Atashi no Machi. xP That single was awesome. She need's something like that again hmm


OOOH!!! And on a bonus note... Hitomi is a special guest and will be debuting another new song on Hidaka's (former lead singer of BEAT CRUSADERS) radio show Kakiiin on March 30 (today in Japan) so.. with all these new releases hopefully a new album is around the corner Meow
