As you can see I’m trying to catch up on reviews, and since GND just released a new single I felt like finishing up all their previous releases. So here’s the final old single.
Well again I have to say that GND isn’t quite all that original this time with their singles. Be your wings is slightly more aggressive, but still true to that eurobeat pop sound. It might not be all that original or new but it still sounds great, some variety would make it a lot better. The same goes for FRIENDSHIP, which sounds the same, except for some distorted vocals and slightly different instrumentals, completely unoriginal for the most part. The only original sounding song, and it’s somewhat original, is Wait for you. It’s still true to the eurobeat sound, but it’s a bit more rock driven, and a little slower than usual. But since it’s a bit slower it’s lost what makes it memorable.
As for the remix of Jounetsu no Daishou, it’s not the worst surprisingly. It’s lengthened to over 7 minutes, but it’s actually good. There’s a greater emphasis on the beats and music. It’s probably the best remix so far.
Final Thoughts: GND really needs to step it up. It’s not that this single is bad, it’s just that it’s way too repetitive. EVERYTHING sounds the same. It’s just getting too boring. But that’s the problem when you only use two instruments everything is bound to sound the same. So at least try to give it some variety.
