No way to say, the beautiful winter ballad. The song opens up with a guitar followed by some synth music and an orchestra. Ayumi then begins singing in some much improved vocals as the piano accompanies her. Then the chorus comes with a drum beat opening it up. The chorus sounds so amazing with the music and just the vocals, Ayumi shows so much emotion in her voice and her pronunciation is great, and it even sounds catchy. The guitar then plays throughout the song, well the acoustic one, and Ayumi begins singing again. Then the second chorus follows, from there the last two choruses are sung. The bridge was a guitar solo with the background music.
Overall Review: No way to say was winter bliss. This single is just what Ayumi needed, especially after the disappointing forgiveness. The title track was phenomenal, the vocals were perfect and the music was beautiful. The remixes could’ve been better, but then again they were acoustic versions, which destroys the original. This is still a great single, that can’t be disputed. It was a magnificent way to end the Memorial address Era.
Final Grade: 100A+
