A preview for KAT-TUN’s upcoming new single, To The Limit, was recently aired on Kame’s radio show.
Anyone and everyone who happens to be reading this post absoultely MUST listen to this radio rip, whether you’re a KAT-TUN or male idol fan or not. This is by far the greatest KAT-TUN singles I’ve ever heard. And it’s easily one of their best, if not the best, songs period. I have listened to this song about 15 times now. I litererally cannot express in words just how completely phenomenal this song is. I mean, the song is so intense that at one point in the song Koki actually says fucking my mind. Now, normally that would be hilarious, but for some reason it actually works in this song.
If I was to describe this song it’s like old school rockish KAT-TUN, but a hundred times better. It’s like if you somehow mixed Real Face, Gold, Taboo, Lips, and Don’t You Ever Stop and played them simultaneously. The song is just absoultely incredible. It just has this amazing blarring rock music but still sort of heavy dance music mixed in at the same time. I have never been this impressed with a KAT-TUN song ever.
I also really love the way it’s sung. Most of the verse is rapping. But it’s not the usual just Koki rapping. Of course Koki does lead the rapping, but everyone else is also rapping. Which actually sounds better than you would expect. Especially since Koki always tries to get the members to rap in concert and only Taguchi could ever really keep up. But of course like most songs the best part is the chorus, but not really by much because the verse and bridge are seriosuly just as good. It’s just that the chorus is sung extremely powerfully. It’s just just amazing. And it sounds like Koki has some solos in the chorus which is amazing. Featuring Koki so much in the song really adds a nice roughness and gruffness to the song. And Koki bias aside, he’s absoultely perfect for this type of song. Of course Kame does have a lot of solos too, he has this big solo part towards the end of the song. But even during group parts you can hear Koki’s voice the most.
