News #3

Since I’ve been on hiatus for so long until now, my interests in music have changed. I think it’s time to change my review list.

I will be adding some new artists!

E-girls

Ever since Follow Me, they’ve caught my eye. I’ve been listening to some of their music, and I like it! Their dancing is awesome, as well as their PV’s. They’ve become one of my new favorite artists.

Berryz Koubou

In memory of Berryz disbandment, I thought it would be nice to go back and listen to all of their music. This is the group that got me into jpop, and I have followed them for many years! Also, I have reviewed pretty much all of         C-ute’s stuff.

 

Mano Erina

I already reviewed one of her albums, I should just finish the rest of her music since she no longer releases music!

I will also be suspending some artists:

Sakura Gakuin: I don’t know, after Ayami, Ayaka, and Airi left, my interest in this group has plummeted. Their last two singles didn’t really impress me either.

Momorio Clover Z: Same with Sakura Gakuin, I haven’t really been caught up with momoclo is a long time.

Shiritsu Ebisu Chuugaku: I was never really into this group, but I don’t want to completely drop them because I like them still.

Weather Girls: Where have these girls been?

Cheeky Parade: Same reason as Momoclo and Sakura Gakuin.

I will be getting rid of the artists:

SUPER☆GiRLS: I’m sorry. I really hate their music style. I tried to like them, but cutesy generic Idol pop is not for me.

i☆Ris: Same reason for SUPERGiRLS.

 

That’s all for now!

i☆Ris: Color

Color 4/5

The beginning of this song (the instrumental) sounds really nice. Somehow, this is the sound that I think of when I think of colors. Right after the instrumental, the voices come in, and everyone starts singing in a chorus. The girls’ voices really surprised me! When I first saw the group, they looked really girly, so I was expecting really high pitched idol-ish voices, but the group sounds really powerful as a chorus, which is really nice. The chorus is the best part of the song, and In my opinion, the group sounds better singing together than in the shared lines. The solo lines near the end of the song are really good. The PV is really standard. (It’s the same place where Guardians 4 shot their Party Time PV lol) Some of the girls look awkward, and the dancing could be better. But not a bad song overall.

Ramune Sunset 2.5/5

UGH. The dreaded debut b-side! Every group that debuts always has a slow ballad type song as their b-side. The trend never fails! Too bad this song falls on the bad side of ballads. It’s really bland, and it really has no charm to it whatsoever… If the song had solo’s in it, it would have made the song 10 times better. But all of the shared lines makes the song so dreary and blah. Maybe it will grow on me?

So this is avex’s new idol group! I’d say that this isn’t a bad debut at all. It could have been better, but it’s not the worse that I’ve seen. The girls already have good vocals, which is more than other idol groups. They just need to work on dancing and more original song choices. If they can do that, I see a bright future for this group!
