THIS IS NOT A GAME was Jasmine’s 3rd single. It was released on March 3, 2010 and reached no. 23 on the Oricon Weekly Charts and has sold over 3,978+ copies. The title track was used as the opening theme song for the NTV music program Ongaku Senshi MUSIC FIGHTER.



Basically no one has released anything new in a while, so I might as well catch up on JASMINE.

Say what you want about her appearance but THIS IS NOT A GAME is one FIERCE song. It’s filled with seductive synth beats as well as some incredible vocals. The mid-tempo arrangement is also pretty nice too. Her vocals sound a bit strained at times, but maybe that’s just strength? Either way this song is awesome, and catchy.

So apparently MY LIFE, MY LOVE, MY ALL is a cover song. I’m not too crazy about cover songs, especially when they’re gospel. I honestly don’t care for gospel but that’s me. The arrangement is pretty simple, just acoustics for the most part. Her vocals don’t get interesting till the middle of it all. It was eh…


Basically the title track was HOT, the B-Side, NOT. But what can you do. I love her material like the title track, all fierce and powerful, not her gospel stuff. There’s not really much to say cause there’s only two songs 0.o oh well.

  1. The a-side is hot, in that “dang if I’m not careful, she’ll snap my neck” kind of way. Awesome review, and I totally agree that the b-side should go curl up and die somewhere. Maybe I was a little bit blunter than you on that one, but you know how it goes. lol

    I must say that this is her BEST a-side single so far! I think it even topped “sad to say” not only for the vocals she’s surpassing, but for the edginess and the energy she shows in this song. She really impressed me with the a-side however starting from the b-side of this single she started heading towards gospel, leading to currently “Dreamin'”. I wasn’t a fan of the b-side but only enjoyed her vocals. I would give it 3.5/5 just for how good THIS IS NOT A GAME was.

    For those Ayu fans there have been a few ups and downs in terms of the new single (MOON/Blossom).Of course the song “MOON” has leaked in HQ but it was ripped from the radio and it is only a short version and the much longer version will be revealed soon (As some people already know). Ayu has stated in her diary that she had shot the pv for MOON and hopefully it and the single covers will be out later this week :). As for the second major A-side “Blossom” well, it was supposed to have a PV but it was cancelled for some strange reason. Ayu has probably given and explanation for this but the real evidence will probably come with the single release (sigh). But back to more good news. Alan will be releasing a new on July 7th entitled Kaze ni Mukau Hana and the PV has already leaked :D. Sorry for sounding like a Know-It-All! Jeez what a mouthfull! X.X
