Kokoro no Sakebi no Uta ni Shitemite 3.5/5
After the mature streak, I guess C-ute wanted a little break. I love C-ute’s “cute” songs, but this is a little disappointing. It’s a little bland, and not very high energy (which is okay). But in this case, the slow pace of the song makes it kind of boring for me. However, the outfits, MV, and dance are great!
Love take it all! 4/5
C-ute’s mature part of the single. This song is a little more playful than most of C-ute’s “mature” songs, however, like Kokoro no Sakebi, I find it bland and missing something. The instrumental is rather playful and interesting though. Once again, the outfits and dancing is on point, but the MV is a little low grade.
The Power 5/5
A lot of people hate this song. I LOVE this song! Yeah it’s weird, and seems like a berryz song, but It’s playful, and to me it still feels very “C-ute”. The dance to me may not be up to their standards, but it’s creative, especially the flying part. The chorus and the verses are catchy and they all look fabulous. What’s not to like? It’s nice to not only to mature songs.
Kanashiki Heaven (Single Version) 5/5
We all know that this is a great song, so why does UFA keep releasing this on everything? In my opinion, it should have been an A-side the first time.
I Miss You 5/5
This song is a masterpiece, and it’s a kind of mature song we haven’t heard fro c-ute yet. Reminds me of BRIGHT’s stuff. Everyone keeps saying how messy the verses are because there’s 3 separate parts to the singing, but I love it, and to me it doesn’t sound messy at all. I love the “I asked myself” part. I love the buildup to the phrase “I Miss You”. Also, whoever is singing the main pain part in the chorus (Airi?) has hit the jackpot. She sounds so good! I think Chisato would also sound great singing this part. Honestly, this is one of C-ute’s best songs ever.
The FUTURE 4./5
Here is C-ute token mature song. It reminds me of “What is LOVE?” a lot, which isn’t a bad thing. I love the beat, and the chorus especially. Someone in the comments said that this song wasn’t memorable?? I know it’s an opinion, but this song has been stuck in my head all day! Especially the part where they sing “The Future.” I think this is just as good as some of the mature songs that C-ute released that I can’t remember the tune to like Kanashiki Amefuri.
I don’t think C-ute will be releasing anything else this month, so I want to review their singles for this year. With this post, I am finally caught up with all c-ute’s songs. Once again, I feel like this was a great year for C-ute despite the two weak singles. Their dances, music, MV’s, and outfits keep on getting better and better. They have quickly climbed to the top of the best H!P groups. Like, when did they get so good? I think it was around the time when Aitai x3 was released in 2012. This is how you handle an idol group people! Looking forward to next year with C-ute!
