ALI – Professionalism (ft. Hannya) (music of the week!)

I suppose I simply wanted a while (and an accompanying visible) to understand this as a result of the music is sounding superior this week.

Beyooooonds – Go Metropolis Go

A little bit of metropolis pop affect on this one. It’s okay.

BUDDiiS – Honey

There are elements of this I like however it devolves into shouty boy band tropes and dangerous hip-hop breakdowns too usually.

DXTEEN – Dance On Open World

That is so irritating. The music itself is sweet however what’s occurring with the vocals? What occurred to the group who delivered the wonderful First Flight? It feels like that is within the improper key.

Generations – Limitless Journey

With Mandy leaving, it appears inevitable that we’d get a sentimental monitor like this. It does its job effectively sufficient.

Girls²×iScream – D.N.A.

How are we not sick of this type of music by now?

IS:SUE – Join

I wrote about this right here. I didn’t prefer it.

ITZY – Algorhythm

I wrote about this right here. I believed it was okay.

JO1 – Love Seeker

This funk pop sound is enjoyable for them, however I’m nonetheless ready for one thing pretty much as good as Born To Be Wild.

M!LK – Blue Bathe

Nonetheless not a fan of the path M!LK’s music has taken, however that is alright for what it’s.

My First Story & Hyde – Mugen

Something associated to Demon Slayer is certain to be enormous, and it is a fairly mighty collaboration. The music is sweet, however nothing mind-blowing.

NOA – Colours

Strong, however fairly generic.

One Love One Coronary heart – Improve

I hope they’ve gotten these sub-unit releases out of their system as a result of they’re simply their worst materials. If I needed this type of clattering boy group sound I’d go elsewhere.

OWV – Love Banditz

This group has a lot potential. I like the raucous vitality of this, even when the music may do with a little bit of tightening right here and there.

SennaRin – boNEs (music of the week!)

SennaRin launched her first album this week and unveiled a bunch of music movies to advertise. Sadly, these movies pair with songs I’m not tremendous keen on, so I’m going with this nice b-side as a substitute.

Tail – Poisonous

Catchy and breezy and good.

Takanori Nishikawa – Love Prepare (music of the week!)

What does it say concerning the present state of J-pop that my favourite music of the week is a canopy of a 90’s hit? This comes from the just-released TM Community tribute album. You’ll be able to by no means go improper with Takanori Nishikawa (aka T.M.Revolution) re-imagining one in all their greatest songs.

Wolf Howl Concord – Pink Flash Lights

Not almost pretty much as good as their final single, however it’s nice.

9nine – Shoujo Traveler (2012)

This sounds a lot like a Sweetune manufacturing, so after all I like it.
