Bokura no Kaze 3.5/5
This is a fairly standard song. It’s not the most exciting song to start out an album. But It has a likeable melody that can get stuck in your head. Also, I love the positive aura of this song. The piano in the background is nice. This is a standard 48 song.
Mango No.2 5/5
This is one of the most likeable tracks! I wish the 48 family would do more songs like this, instead of the bland songs you see so often. This song is tropical sounding, and kind of quirky.I love how the song starts Ahhhh MANGO #2!! The CHA-CHA-CHA‘s and speaking parts are highly addictive.
Te wo Tsunaginagara 4/5
This is the title of the album. The title song is supposed to be the best. However, I think other songs on the album were better than this song. This song reminds me of Bokura no Kaze, they’re both pretty standard. The chorus is catchy, however, some of the girls sounded bored/sung with no emotion, which is a problem I find that some idol groups sometimes have.
Chime wa LOVE SONG 3/5
This is another standard blah song. I really want to like this song, but it follows the same pattern and formula. The shared lines are nice though.
Glory Days 5/5
Like Mango#2, this is one of my favorite songs on the track! I forgot the style that the girls are singing in (Ska?), but I like it. It’s a nice change from traditional sounding idol songs. I love all of the solos. Jurina sounds particularly nice here as well. I like all of the whoah’s. Surprisingly, they are not annoying. This is just a great song all around!
Kono Mune no Bar Code 5/5
Here’s a more mature song. This song is also ranked high among the tracks on the album! I love the serious tone, and the harmonizing. These three girls have amazing voices!
Wimbledon e Tsureteitte 4.5/5
This is a pretty odd song. But odd is good! These three girls have cute voices, and the song is interesting enough. The FUREE FUREE FUREE part is really cute, and addicting. I like the chorus. This song is pretty likeable.
Ame no Pianist 4.5/5
Here is another semi-mature song. And I really like this one! Like the title suggests, it features the piano all through out the song, which gives it a nice sound. I love the overall feeling of the song. The solos are off the chain, especially Yui.
Choco no Yukue 3.5/5
Like Wimbledon e Tsureteitte, this is another odd song with a weird instrumental. The vocals are really cute, sometimes too cute for my taste. This song is likeable, but not my favorite.
This is like part two to kono mune no barcode. It features off of the wall vocals from a select few girls, and the rest of the song is just shared lines. I love this song! The group sounds good as a chorus, and the song is catchy.
Romance Rocket 4.5/5
This is a song with a spaced theme. I think that the lyrics are really cute! The Ohh yeah‘s are catchy. I like all of the added sound effects and random speaking parts.
Koi no Keikou to Taisaku 5/5
Another one of my favorite tracks! This song shows that SKE can be weird and crazy, and I love weird and crazy! The instrumental is kind of funky, and the chorus is amazing. I love all of the little sound effects and random bursts of speaking. Even though this song is pretty weird, every little element somehow comes together!!
Here’s a semi ballad song. I don’t know what to think of this. The chorus is pretty nice, but the versus are really boring!
Rope no Yuujou 3.5/5
Every album has to have a “serious” song, and this song is pretty serious and fierce. The girls sung in a chorus for the whole song, which makes them sound really powerful. The song in itself is pretty catchy as well.
Kayoubi no Yoru, Suiyobi no Asa 3.5/5
I swear this sounds like the song above this one. Like Rope no Yuujou, this song is a pretty serious song. I don’t know, it sounds too much like rope no yuujou to me.
Tooku ni Itemo 4/5
An idol album isn’t an album without a ballad!! *sarcasm* This ballad is the standard ballad. It’s slow. It’s kind of boring. But this song actually really grew on me! If you listen to it long enough, it’s actually really touching! The chorus sounds really nice.
I don’t know why I reviewed SKE’s 1st stage album after their second… this album has some favorites on here that I like, but I have to say that Seifuku no Me was a tad bit better than this. That’s a good thing! It means that they improved~
