The radio rip for Takahashi Ai’s solo song Jishin Motte, Yume Motte, Tobidatsu Kara featured on Morning Musume’s 47th single has been revealed. This song is only a B-side, however the full PV for this song will be included in the Limited Edition version of Morning Musume’s 12th album.
When I first listened to the song I was completely surprised. Since Ai-chan is the best singer, arguably, in Morning Musume’s history I was expecting a ballad. Something along the lines of Yume Kara Samete or Kioku no Meiro. But I actually really do like the sound of this song. It’s a nice soft rock song that sounds more like a B-side or album filler for Buono, than a song Ai would do. But Ai sounds amazing and her voice fits the song perfectly. Which just shows how Ai-chan can sing any genre of music perfectly. Which also reminds me how much it hurts to lose and amazing voice like hers.
The only real complaint I have about this song is it didn’t really use Ai’s voice to her full potential. Everyone knows the that Ai-chan has an incredible range. While listening to the song I kept waiting for some high notes to come out of nowhere. I am pretty sad that they never came.
Well, that and I can’t really stand that radnomly throughout the song she sings in a slightly annoying pitch. Everytime she does it, it’s like she’s trying to make her voice sound cuter than it actually is. I’ve already expressed before how much I can’t stand when she does that. It just knocks her incredible voice down a peg. Leave stuff like that to Sayumi. Not like Sayumi is ever doing it on purpose.
Having this song as a B-side just makes this upcoming single even better than it already is. I stand by my statement that this single is the best single Morning Musume has released in a while. This makes me hopeful that the 12th album will be just as good.
