SO CRAZY, R&B/Hip-Hop in the flesh. This song is very R&B and hip-hop inspired, but I can honestly say that it doesn’t jump out at me as a good song. The constant beats were nice and the vocals were great, but that was about it. The chorus wasn’t that thrilling at all, it was good to a point but it wasn’t that amazing. But I must admit that the beats were somewhat catchy, but still just listen to the second track.
Come, the amazingly good theme song. Come was one of the first songs I had heard from Namie, and to my surprise it was very good. It was used as the 7th ending for Inuyasha, a Japanese anime for those of you who don’t know. This is also a cover song from an Australian artist. The song itself sounds so amazing with all the music and vocals. The English parts are my favorite, and surprisingly her English is very good. Come starts off with some synth/mystic style music and beats followed Namie’s vocals. I found the verses to be very catchy since there was a great deal of English. The chorus was a lot better though. The constant use of English followed by Japanese really made it, and those beats didn’t hurt either. It was very catchy and Namie’s vocals were a lot better here as there was more power. The ending here was phenomenal too, with the fading music, Namie’s vocals, along with some background vocals.
Overall Review: SO CRAZY / Come was like a boy & a girl. Each song was so different and normally that’s good, but this time it wasn’t. I was really disappointed by the first track and that’s what really lowered the score on this single. But I loved the second track, it was much better. I do wish that it sold a little more though, oh well. Not a bad single, just one bad song.
Final Grade: 88B
