With just 2 days until the official release date of Morning Musume’s 11th album, Fantasy Juuichi, they’ve just released a new preview. This time it’s Onna Gokoro to Nanto Yara, which is probably going to be there last song preview before the release date.
After listening to it for a few times, this song is probably my least favorite preview they have released. The music is too slow and simple. And it reminds me a little bit of C-ute’s Everyday Yeah Kataomoi. I’m just not into the song. Even the way it’s being sung, it sounds like there’s no emotion behind it. And it makes the overall song sound a bit flat. And because someone in H!P must have had a brain hemorrhage, the line distribution still sucks. The solos go to Risa, Eri, and Ai-chan. And if I listen hard enough I can kinda hear Aika. But as always, I’ll just have to wait for the full song to be released in 2 days.
I’m sorry that this is so late guys. I’ve just been really busy helping my family get ready for Thanksgiving. But since Thanksgiving is officially over, and I’m stuffed full of turkey, I can blog 100% again. Anyway, I should probably talk about the topic at hand.
With the release of Morning Musume’s 11th album, Fantasy! Juuichi, just 5 days away Momusu released yet another radio rip. This time the song is entitled 1 Kara 10 Made Aishite Hoshii.
I actually really like the music of this song. It’s got a real 1970’s feel. It sounds like a mix between disco music and funk music. And I do like that this song is mainly sung as a group. I think it gives it a really cute and endearing quality. However, I really hate that the only members we hear with a solo are Ai and Reina. So far 3 songs have been previewed. I certainty hope either these previews have just been to short to hear LinLin and JunJun or the remaining 6 songs we have yet to hear are full of LinLin and JunJun.
With Fantasy! Juuichi’s release date right around the corner Morning Musume previews another song from the album. This time it’s Fantasy ga hajimaru, but the preview is only 1:40. Which means there’s obviously no way it’s the full song. At first listen I am absolutely in love with the whole night club type of music is has. It another club sounding song like Berryz’s Dakishimete Dakishimete and Momusu’s SONGS. But it actually sounds a lot like DEF.DIVA’S Suki Sugite Baka Mitai. While I do like the overall sound of the song I am completely disappointed by it at the same time. The song is basically a Sayumi solo song, she sings pretty much the entire time during this preview. Except for the short Reina solo part And Ai’s solo part at the very end. And it sounds like Ai and Eri also have one line solos during the verse, but with their voices being practically autotuned I can’t tell if it’s them or still Sayumi. I guess Sayumi’s It’s You solo from Platinum 9 Disc wasn’t enough, she needs another practically solo song. I mean she is graduating after all. Oh wait, that’s LinLin and JunJun. I don’t understand why I bother complaining anymore. I’m obviously not to get my dream Ai and LinLin duet, Risa and JunJun duet, and JunJun solo song. I also have to get used to Sayumi getting more and more solo lines since she’ll be one of the oldest members in the group once Eri, LinLin, and JunJun graduate. I’m actually more excited for Aika to get more lines because she’ll be a senpai to the new members. But I’m just ranting now.
Morning Musume’s 11th album Fantasy! Juuichi is being released in less then 2 weeks. And to promote Morning Musume was a guest on FM-Fuji radio show, so now we have a preview of the song Itoshiku kurushii kono yoru ni.
The song is a slow sung song, but it still has heavy background music. Which is great for me because I hate slow songs. But as long as the background music isn’t soft, I don’t mind songs that are sung slow. I absolutely love the overall sound of this song. It’s soft and elegant, and upbeat at the same time. And Eri sounds incredible on her solo lines. I mean just really great. It really hurts to lose a voice as strong as hers. The only actual fault I have with this song is, it’s only sung by Eri, Reina, and Ai. I mean call me crazy, but I though this was Eri, LinLin, and JunJuns’ farewell album. Not just another excuse for Ai and Reina to line hog. I do realize that this is the first preview of the album, and I should be patient. But I cannot stand that JunJun and LinLin are getting shafted yet again! They’re all graduating but you can honestly only tell Eri is. I mean she’s getting a new solo photobook, and one with the 6th gen, and she’s leading this song. It’s as if LinJun never existed. I know they aren’t that popular, but they get nothing? Nothing at all! Where’s the 8th gen photobook? Eri has had like 7 photobooks, LinLin and JunJun don’t have any and will never get one now! Sometimes I cannot stand H!P.
