With less than a month until the release date, we finally have a full radio rip of Arashi’s new single Lotus. Well, actually the full radio rip came out a few days ago but this is my first time hearing it.
Hearing the whole songs just makes me think this song sounds like Truth and Monster even more. The music has this almost eerie tone to it that is extremely reminiscent of Monster. And the lyrics remind me a lot of Truth. After listening to it all the way through a few times I’m am really starting to like this song. But it doesn’t really move beyond ok or good for me. It doesn’t have that instant like ability that songs like Troublemaker, Beautiful Days and Kitto Daijoubu had.
And for a song being used as a theme to his drama you’d think you’d hear Aiba more. He only has one solo line and it’s just a tiny bit longer than Nino’s and Ohno’s solos. But at the very end of the song it does sound like Aiba has another solo line, but the annoying announcer is talking over that part. XD
