Shinjitsu no Uta

Shinjitsu no Uta was Do As Infinity’s 14th single. It was released on October 30, 2002 and reached no. 5 on the charts and has sold over 72,100+ copies. The title track was used as the fifth opening for the anime InuYasha.  Like Fukai Mori this song’s English name was given to there album which was True Song. This was also the final single in the TRUE SONG Era.

Review:
Shinjitsu no Uta lit. Song of Truth or True Song. This song was used as the 5th ending of Inuyasha. One of the most notable things about this song is that there are so many different instruments and elements. This song begins with a reed/flute playing. From there I was like whatever, but after I listened to it a little more I began to love it. You can also hear some Japanese elements in this song like the instrument that’s somewhat like a violin, but not. It also has a little rock vibe during the chorus. And the chorus is so amazingly good with the drums and the vocals are the best. The end part of the chorus is the best, especially when she sings the title, but even the beginning sounds great. The song is so beautiful and the music continually adds to it.

One or Eight is a faster paced song with that distinctive soft rock quality. It’s okay as B-Sides go but you do hear why it’s a B-Side. It’s not nearly as powerful as the title track.

Overall Review: Shinjitsu no Uta was rock temptation, with a hint of woodwind perfection. All the elements really made the song from the great vocals to the little flute playing. You really need to listen to this song. This is perhaps their best single, besides Fukai Mori, and Tooku Made. But the B-Side kinda killed it.

Final Review: 94A-

  1. […] Shinjitsu no Uta, lit. Song of Truth or True Song. This song’s translation gave it’s name to the album, like Fukai Mori. It’s really amazing what Inuyasha songs can do, giving their names to the albums. This song has got to be the best song on the album, not doubt about it. All of the traditional music really made it a fantastic song. The chorus was absolutely phenomenal and powerful. Van’s vocals were at the height of perfection in this song. What a riveting rock song.
