After the disaster known as VOICE, Perfume has come back with the super catchy Nee. It’s their typical Perfume song, the good ones anyway; electropop/synth & idol!!! This song is pretty damn catchy, the main reason why I love it. The music is great, a little heavy on the electronic elements, but good nonetheless. And while it may not be all that speedy and fast, it’s certainly catchy and up-beat enough to get stuck inside your head. The only problem, it gets long winded towards the end.
As for FAKE IT, well it’s different. Initially, the opening instrument is annoying, but it does get better. Once you get past that, it’s pretty pleasant. The music is a bit darker, heavier in its tone compared to their usual idol works. It would be nice if it were a bit faster, that aside it’s not all that bad.
Basically, this it’s a bad single. When you compare it to their previous single, it’s amazing. But compared to some of their great works, it’s okay. Yeah, it sounds catchy and all, but it could be a lot better. I was hoping for something faster, like Dream Fighter. Not their worst single, but certainly not their finest. That being said, I still enjoyed the single. For the one electro-pop idol group, they rock! No, but seriously, they do!
