It’s about time but Nami has finally released a decent and in this case, incredible A-Side. Moshimo Negai ga… is a flawless synth driven ballad. The piano chords along with the synth makes for a beautiful and modern ballad. I can honestly say that her vocals actually sound good in this song, some of them were just bland and mediocre, but they have some life! And the bridge, with the auto-tune was superb, I can never get enough of it.
As for the B-Sides….well Sukiya de ~Itoshii Hito e~ was an attempt at an up-beat, uplifting mid-tempo pop tune. I have to admit that it did sound nice, but the male vocals during the chorus threw me off . I did like the guitar riffs and the strings, an interesting combination. And as for MAGIC, this cover is pretty damn good. The original was performed by Tina in 1999, and I’m not sure how it sounded, but I love this cover from Nami. The synth riffs and beats sound fun and energetic.
This is probably one of my favorite songs from Nami at this point, aside from her latest single, which I hope to review within a week. For once the title track was good, pleasant in this case, and filled with synth, which you can never have enough of IMO. And then the B-Sides were good as well. It has one central theme and it sounds excellent, hopefully her new album STEP will be just as good. And on another note, I love how she looks, such an improvement from her last single.
