Finally it’s been released although I haven’t brought it yet but once I see the oversea version out I’m gonna buy it so right now I’m just gonna listen to the downloaded version. After listening to TOKYO (track 4) I’ve been craving for more of their new songs in this album.
Track 1. Spinning Around – A fast high beat song, it’s alright but there’s so much “You got me” which was a bit annoying at the end.
Track 2. RELOADED – When the music started I thought it’s alright and when Keita started singing I thought it was horrible. This song like a bit pop rockish song.
Track 3. Hello – The melody of this song is pretty nice, this is a ballad song. The song is pretty nice, I guess Keita’s voice sounds better for ballads now.
Track 4. TOKYO – I think I already explained how much I love this song in the TOKYO PV post. So I don’t want to repeat the same thing.
Track 5. New Day – This is another alright song, I hear a lot of the acoustic guitar. The song is pretty catchy after the first listen.
Track 6. LOVE – Another ballad song, I like the 2 verses of the song as the beat is a bit faster. The “love” part probably gets a bit annoying as it repeated too much throughout the song.
Track 7. Urban Dance – The style of this song reminds me of Crazy for you and Top Secret. It probably sounds nicer when it’s a live.
Track 8. Rock It – It sound a little hardcore at the start of the song, it sounds alright. I have a feeling that would be a good song for live concert.
Track 9. Ameato – This was one of their single song, I having nothing to say other than that this song sounds really good and I really like it.
Track 10. LOVE IS THE GREATEST THING – This song is also one of their single song, also the theme song for Shrek 3. I just love this song and the PV was awesome.
Track 11. Stay – I love this song! I like the melody and the beat of the song and of course I thought Keita sang really well. When Keita started singing the first verse immediately I know I would like the rest of the song and I really did. I also like the rap of Ryuichi and Ryohei towards the end of the song.
Track 12. Don’t Give Up – This is an alright up beat song, relaxing song and it would be a good song to sing during the encore of a concert. The chorus is pretty catchy especially the “don’t give up” part.
Track 13. Hand in Hand – A Spanish style song as there’s the sound of tap dancing and the acoustic guitar at the start. They also have a Spanish type of song before in the Ageha album but fail to be my like, but this one sounds pretty good as there’s not the strong sense of the Spanish style.
Track 14. Beautiful Life – A single song, sound alright but it didn’t get me addicted to the song.
Track 15. Summer Days – An alright mid-tempo song with a little summer-ish taste of it. Once again I hear a lot of the acoustic guitar.
Overall this album didn’t disappoint me although I thought their previous album Journey were better and had better songs. I’m guessing w-inds. is moving more into ballad and mid-tempo songs rather than fast and up beat songs like before. And I’m also finding myself loving their ballad songs much more than the fast and up beat songs.
I’ll be looking forward for them to perform these songs in the concert.
