At this point I’ve decided to back track a bit. I don’t feel like reviewing another album, and it seems like this year’s winter singles are done, except for one really major one, but that’s not till later next week. And since I love the title track so much and since I’ve already done the last single why not review the first and second from the album?
Besides being lazy I COMPLETELY AND UTTERLY ADORE SAYONARA Baby. That’s probably the main reason for my reviewing this song. And since I love it so much it’ll be rather detailed. So this song is pretty much the most infectious song I’ve ever heard. It’s Miliyah so it’s R&B that does involve a tone of synth, but to some degree it sounds almost like a dance song with all the beats, claps, and again the synth. Her vocals sound incredible with the semi-fast music, and there’s even some power. Yeah but it’s pretty sweet, just all the beats and underlying synth, it’s a mind-blowing combination.
As for Koishiteru, I’m honestly not too sure about this song. This song is more of an up-beat R&B song, that sounds a bit too cheery. It also samples the song I Love Your Smile by Shanice. I just couldn’t get over the woodwind section, it was obnoxious.
PERFECT PITCH is a bit more tolerable, especially with all the strings. It’s a decent R&B song, it doesn’t go too fast, it keeps at a nice pace. But after a while it does sound rather bland. But the beats are nice, and her vocals were pretty good.
Final Thoughts: Greatest song ever! If you listen to one song this year, particularly one that’s R&B and synth oriented, then listen to this song, and by this I mean SAYONARA Baby. The beats are crazy and the sound is phenomenal, it’s almost a dance song, that’s how infectious it is. That being said, it’s safe to say that you can skip the other tracks since this outshines them both. Yeah the single could have been better, but in this case the one track makes up for the others, it’s just that damn good. An infectious and memorable way to kick off the Ring Era.
