Review:
LIFE the acoustic upbeat song. Although this song did only reach 9 on the charts it has since become more popular. This song was used as the ending theme song for the anime Bleach, which has just began airing in the United States, well the song anyway. The song features an acoustic guitar and some drums to create a beautiful song. The chorus here sounds so great and it’s really the best part of this song. It also uses a few English lines, and I mean a few, but it’s still good. What a great song.

crossroad the second acoustic song. This song, like LIFE, features an acoustic guitar to give it that acoustic vibe. It’s pretty upbeat and somewhat fast paced. The chorus here sounds pretty good also. A lovely B-Side.

Tomorrow’s way ~YUI Acoustic Version~ an acoustic spin. This is an acoustic version of Tomorrow’s way, the previous single by YUI. This trend, an acoustic A-Side on the next single has continued to this day. YUI’s vocals here weren’t that great so I really didn’t care for the song, and the whole acoustic feel to it wasn’t that great either.

Overall Review: LIFE was a fantastic single that possessed a beautiful acoustic vibe with it. This is just what YUI needed in a single. It’s just a shame that it didn’t do any better on the charts. But this is still a fantastic single, especially with LIFE.

Final Grade: 94A-
