Onto another review of GND’s amazing singles….NOT. Ok so we all know that pretty much every single sounds the same, except for maybe one. Each song has that eurobeat sound, because they only use the keyboard and guitar, and some synth here and there.
That being said, I was actually pleased somewhat by Infinity. The chorus was something completely new and unexpected that I actually like it. And as usual it was upbeat. Something even more unusual and even shocking was If. It’s a ballad, and a good one at that. It’s slower for GND as well just plain epic. And besides all the keyboards and guitar, they also feature an orchestra of strings. Like I said, it’s pretty epic, and not even up-beat either, more somber than anything.
I’m honestly quite fed up with all these remixes. The first few were nice, but now it seems like it’s every single, and it’s boring, and a waste of space. Before Jounetsu no Daishou it was Guuzen no Kakuritsu. They’ve remixed this song so many times that it’s just plain annoying. As far as Seeds of dream goes…. just annoying as well. Too many repeating sounds, and it sounded like a broken record.
Final Thoughts: WOW! This single wasn’t half bad, nor did I want to hurt myself after listening to it. This is something new and different from GND. It’s more refined than their previous works and it’s not as annoying as it could have been. Some more variety in the title track would have been nice, but you can only do so much with GND. And the B-Side was just awing and incredible. I thought it’d be a complete pile of crap, but instead it was an amazing ballad. And the remixes…well they could have been left off to put it nicely.
