Review:
Yumekui lit. Dream Eater. This song begins with Ai singing in that sweet voice of hers. The song itself is laid back and features some guitar beats. I guess you could call it a pop/rock song, more pop though. The verses are sweet and simple. While the chorus is really good and sounds so fantastic and catchy. A sweet A-Side.

tears the B-Side. It’s only found on this single as it was not placed on her album. This song is the complete opposite of Yumekui. It is a ballad that features the piano. The song is quite moving and Ai’s voice sounds better than ever. The orchestra playing adds to all the greatness. I never knew that Ai could sing like this, it’s quite a change.

Overall Review: Yumekui was a great single. It featured a laid back pop/rock song and a beautiful ballad. Although the two contradict each other its still good. I do understand though why tears wasn’t added to the album. But overall Yumekui was a fantastic single.

Final Grade: 94A-

  1. […] Yumekui lit. Dream Eater. This song was released as a single. As mentioned before it is a pop rock song, but mostly pop. Ai’s vocals are sweet and laid back. The chorus here was particularly catchy. This is just what the album needed, a light hearted pop song. Click here for the review of Yumekui. […]
