Morning Musume-Seishun Collection preview

Morning Musume’s 43rd single, Seishun Collection, is being released June 9th. And of course a preview has been floating around the internet for about a week now.

First off, I am super disappointed with this song. I’m beyond not liking it. I dislike it so much I would prefer for it to never be released. I haven’t been this disappointed in a single since Shouganai Yume Oibito. And I tried to give this song the benefit of doubt. I listened to it about 4-5 times in a row to find something good about it. And I just can’t.

So, why do I dislike this song so much? It’s pretty obvious. The song is boring and I mean extremely boring. The music is so bland it’s almost excruciating to listen to. It honestly sounds like an ending song for a drama that you wouldn’t really pay attention to. I’m just blown away by the fact that Morning Musume keeps releasing basically the same song over and over. What happened to Morning Musume changing its style from single to single? They’ve been consistently lack luster for the past 6 singles or so. Because Kimagure Princess was a complete fluke.

And this song is the 3rd song in the row were only Ai, Risa, Reina, and Eri got solo lines. And I’m sick of it. I’m absolutely sick of it! Line distribution has never been this unfair in the history of Morning Musume. Well actually from Love Machine and on, it was a little unfair in the beginning. But still it is just incredible that Morning Musume keeps making unfair songs like this and shows no sign of slowing down or stopping. And I’m just tired of hearing the same people sing over and over. Yeah they’re the best singers of the current line up, tell me something I didn’t know. Pretty soon it’s going to be Furusato all over again.

And they could do something to make it more interesting. Not one of the girls has a solo line in Go Girl ~Koi no Victory~, and that’s one of my all time favorite Morning Musume singles. For the simple fact that it’s upbeat and it’s fun. Which is what idol music is basically all about.
