KAT-TUN - Dead or Alive

CD

CD + DVD A

CD + DVD B

Dead or Alive is KAT-TUN's 23rd single & it was released last week on 21st Jan .

The quartet's 1st release of 2015 , Dead or Alive was chosen to be used as the theme song for movie Joker・Game starring member Kamenashi Kazuya .

In addition , Dead or Alive was picked to be used in the ads of Listen Radio .

Joker・Game will open in Japan theatres this coming Sat on 31st Jan . The movie is based on a mystery novel by Yanagi Koji that has sold over 800,000 copies .

This's the 2nd time KAT-TUN has provided a theme song for a movie , the 1st time was their 21st single FACE to Face which was used to promote Ore Ore that starred Kame .

Dead or Alive is described as a hard tune which depicts the paper-thin extremity between life & death as in Joker・Game , geniuses put their intelligence to the test in a dramatically impactful & large-scale game . In Dead or Alive , the song showcases how KAT-TUN continues to dig even deeper as they mature .

There're a total of 4 B-sides in Dead or Alive . WHITE LOVER & You are DELICIOUS ! are available in the CD only edition of the single .

WHITE LOVERS is a nice mid tempo track that contrasts the A-side quite well & despite the questionable title , You are DELICIOUS ! is a fun upbeat somewhat poppy no. that I find it enjoyable to listen to .

Polaris is only available in the CD + DVD A edition of Dead or Alive & just like WHITE LOVERS , it's a mid tempo track but equally as good as any other of past slow songs that KAT-TUN's known for .

The last B-side Hanasanaide Ai is only available in the CD + DVD A edition of Dead or Alive & for this song , it's a solo track sung by Kame .

Hanasanaide Ai has a music video & this song was performed live for the 1st time during KAT-TUN's concert 3 years ago during Summer . Song credits wise , it was written & composed by KinKi Kids' Domoto Tsuyoshi .

Way before I found out who was responsible for writing/composing Kame's Hanasanaide Ai , I already had a strong feeling it was Tsuyoshi as his solo influences can be felt quite greatly in the song .

Still , Hanasanaide Ai is a great solo & it might took a bit longer than expected but for it to finally get the CD treatment , it's something worth the wait .

KAT-TUN's Kamenashi Kazuya is starring in the new spy thriller Joker・Game & KAT-TUN is providing the theme song to the movie ! Dead or Alive is an intense pulse-pounding song that is the perfect way to bring listeners into the film's world .

Dead or Alive is overall a great solid single release & it's a good 1 for KAT-TUN to kick off 2015 . Except for You are DELICIOUS ! , the other B-sides present a more mellow side of KAT-TUN in which I've said previously that I do feel that the guys shine in both tough hard rock songs + ballads & this's evident with the release of Dead or Alive .

I look forward to KAT-TUN's future music releases for 2015 & for now Dead or Alive is a highly recommended single worth checking out .

B'z - Uchouten

Cover for both CD & CD + DVD editions

1) Uchouten
2) Endless Summer

Uchouten is B'z's 51st single & it was released last week on 14th Jan .

This's the duo's 1st single release of 2015 & their last single release was 2012's GO FOR IT , BABY -Kioku no Sanmyaku- .

Described as a motivational rock tune , Uchouten was picked to be used as the theme song for NTV drama Gakkou Kaidan .

After 3 years of solo activities by the members , B'z are finally back together with brand new material ! Uchouten started off with slow sounding acoustic guitar riffs but slowly but surely the song transformed into a hard rock edge number which really ramped up things by a notch or 2 .

Endless Summer serves as the B-side in the single & likewise with the A-side , it's yet another enjoyable song that's filled with catchy hooks .

The best selling Japan act of all time is finally back with this stellar solid release in the form of Uchouten & frankly I can't think of any reason on not to respect B'z . If their staying power isn't testimonial to their still evergreen popularity , I don't know what else to say .

B'z's 19th album EPIC DAY will be released on 4th March with Uchouten included in the tracklist as track #2 .

On that note , welcome back B'z , you have been missed !

NEWS - KAGUYA

CD Regular

CD Limited

CD + DVD

KAGUYA is NEWS's 17th single & it was released last week on 7th Jan .

The quartet's 1st release of 2015 , the A-side is based on a theme of Princess Kaguya from The Tale of the Bamboo Cutter , 1 of the best known folk tales in Japanese culture .

KAGUYA is described as an emotional love song that fuses the folktale with the NEWS of the present . The video for KAGUYA was directed by renowned photographer/director Ninagawa Mika & it portrays a colourful present day Princess Kaguya .

There're a total of 4 B-sides available in the single . Butterfly is a really nice mid tempo track that contrasts the A-side quite well .

Wasurenagusa & TOP OF THE WORLD are only available in the CD only regular edition of the single . Wasurenagusa is a lovely acapella driven song & the only downside is that this track's a bit too short . When I 1st heard it , I was surprised as the song ended abruptly just like that .

TOP OF THE WORLD is a fun upbeat number that has slight traces of EDM thrown in for good measure .

TRAVeLiNG is exclusively found in the CD only limited edition of KAGUYA . Out of the 4 B-sides , this's my least fave as there's something about TRAVeLiNG that doesn't feel/sound right to me .

1 of Johnny's & Associates most talented group NEWS kicks off the brand new year with the release of their latest single offering KAGUYA .

With the exception of TRAVeLiNG , KAGUYA is an otherwise really solid release & the A-side is just gorgeous to boot with it having a rather strong Oriental backing , something that I was immediately drawn to the moment I 1st heard it .

I do hope that in 2015 , NEWS will release more material as it's somewhat ironic that their releases have not been that frequent after the departure of their 2 most prominent members Yamashita Tomohisa & Nishikido Ryo . And to me it's a pity that I always feel that NEWS has always consistently put out good music which's evident in KAGUYA .

And speaking of new material , NEWS will release their 6th album White next month on 25th Feb , with their last album release being 2013's NEWS . To top it all off , NEWS will embark on a new tour NEWS LIVE TOUR 2015 White to support/promote the new album .

Kis-My-Ft2 - Thank you Jan !

CD

CD + DVD A

CD + DVD B

Thank you Jan ! is Kis-My-Ft2's 12th single & it was released on Christmas Eve / 24th Dec .

The group's latest single was released about 4 months + since the release of their previous single Another Future .

Regarding Thank you Jan ! , member Tamamori Yuta commented , "We want to thank the fans who made Kis-My-Ft2 2014 Concert Tour『Kis-My-Journey』 possible ."

After being a bit disappointed with Another Future , in comes Thank you Jan ! which thankfully is more stronger/memorable . In addition , it's a lot more light-hearted & fun which's perfect during this festive period .

The video for Thank you Jan ! gives off quite a Winter feeling to a certain extent even though I still don't really consider Thank you Jan ! as Winter inspired unlike the guys' past Winter singles such as SNOW DOME no Yakusoku .

A total of 3 B-sides are available in the single . Kimi ni Aeru Kara was picked to be used in the ads of KOWA Nukunuku Touban while Holy night with you & Christmas Kiss are only available in the CD only edition of Thank you Jan ! .

Before I listened to the B-sides , I already had a feeling they were all going to be Christmas inspired & true enough it was . Kimi ni Aeru Kara is a really nice ballad while Holy night with you is heartwarming .

On the other hand , Christmas Kiss embodies the spirit of the holiday season in a good way .

Celebrate the achievements of another year with Kis-My-Ft2's Thank You Jan ! ! The group's latest single is a lively dance song that encourages everyone to give thanks all the events that happened over the course of the past year and wish for a great upcoming year .

2014 has been a really great fruitful for the guys & already the 1st week sales that Thank you Jan ! obtained is now their personal best which's really good for them .

I can't wait to see what else they have in stores for 2015 but for now Thank you Jan ! is worth checking out during this festive season , especially the B-sides which're all highly recommended .

ayumi hamasaki - Zutto... / Last minute / Walk

1) Zutto...
2) Last minute
3) Walk
4) Zutto... (-Instrumental-)
5) Last minute (-Instrumental-)
6) Walk (-Instrumental-)

Zutto... / Last minute / Walk is ayumi hamasaki's 53rd single & it was released on Christmas Eve / 24th Dec .

ayumi's latest single release comes in about 2 months + since the release of her previous single Terminal .

Zutto... / Last minute / Walk is described as a Winter ballads trilogy . ayumi's last Winter ballad single release was 2009's You were... / BALLAD while her last triple A-side single release was 2003's & .

The fanclub edition of Zutto... / Last minute / Walk includes a remix track titled WINTER BALLAD MEDLEY (Days ~ CAROLS ~ No way to say ~ JEWEL ~ You were... ~ momentum ~ POWDER SNOW).

Despite Zutto... / Last minute / Walk being a triple A-side single , only a video was made for Zutto... at this point in time .

Prior to the physical CD release , Zutto... / Last minute / Walk was released digitally on 17th Dec .

Each A-side are ballads but they're quite different from each other . Zutto... is quite a standard Winter ballad while on the other hand , Last minute is a rock ballad .

Lastly , Walk is a ballad that was composed by Komuro Tetsuya .

Generally , I like all the 3 songs but if I have to pick a fave , Last minute has my vote . There's just something about this track that reminded me of Memorial address to a certain extent . I'm not sure why but I find it quite nostalgic to a certain extent .

While Zutto... is pretty , the ending for Walk was a bit awkward which took me quite a while to get used after a few listens .

Before staging ayumi hamasaki COUNTDOWN LIVE 2014-2015 A Cirque de Minuit ~Mayonaka no Circus~ on the last 3 days of 2014 starting from tomorrow , ayumi hamasaki has released Zutto... / Last minute / Walk just in time for Christmas ! The superstar's latest single release features 3 heartwarming & distinctively different ballads hemmed by Komuro Tetsuya , Yukumi Tetsuya & Tago Kunio respectively . Have yourself a merry little Christmas with her latest single !

ayumi shows no signs of stopping down as she will release a new classical album exactly a month later on 28th Jan 2015 . More details from the album title to the tracklist will be revealed in due time but most likely it will follow a similar concept to A CLASSICAL .

Saito Kazuyoshi - Endless

Endless is a song by Saito Kazuyoshi which was released digitally on 10th Oct .

This song was released digitally at the same time together with another digital single Wonderland .

Endless was picked to be used as the theme song for Mitsui Fudosan Residential's Time Slip ! Horibe Yasubei .

Saito is always known for taking his music to a different level & that speaks for Endless . This song if it ends up in the hands of another artiste , it might come across as a typical standard boring guitar driven number .

But that's not the case for Saito as he's known for creating very intriguing melodies for his songs & I guess that's 1 aspect of his long lasting appeal + after being in the business for so long , Saito knows what works best for him .

On that note , Endless is a song worth checking out from him .

CD Review :: FLOWER FLOWER - Mi

CD

CD + DVD

1) Negai
2) Kamisama
3) Kuuki
4) Toumei na Uta
5) Ohayou no Kiss wo
6) Suiteki
7) Subarashii Sekai
8) Sekiwotatsu
9) Hikari
10) Kimi no Koto
11) Start Line
12) Tsuki
13) Bye Bye

Mi is FLOWER FLOWER's debut album & it was released last month on 26th Nov .

FLOWER FLOWER's debut album includes 3 digital singles . Their 3rd & 4th digital singles Aki + Natsu are not included in Mi .

Prior to the physical CD release of Mi , 4 album tracks were released digitally week after week before 26th Nov .

The formation of FLOWER FLOWER is hemmed by singer-songwriter yui (previously stylised as YUI) who serves as the vocalist of the group .

Consists of vocalist/guitarist yui , bassist mafumafu , drummer sacchan & keyboardist/programmer mura☆jun , yui formed FLOWER FLOWER with other musicians she respects & the band started studio sessions last year . She said that with FLOWER FLOWER , she was able to purely enjoy the music that the band creates & from each new performance , she naturally gets new ideas for potential new songs .

yui commented, "I thought anything would sound good with these members , but it's true that there was some feeling of 'destruction' somewhere in my heart . I'm not sure how people will respond to it , but I hope to give some kind of shock ."

FLOWER FLOWER have released digital singles since last year , making Mi their 1st physical CD release .

The album title Mi mean a seed , a fruit . On why they chose to name their debut album Mi , FLOWER FLOWER explains that it's because they're growing & then they are getting it + sharing it .

Negai is the opening track of Mi . This mid tempo number more or less sets the rest of the music style found in other tracks in the album .

Kamisama is FLOWER FLOWER's 2nd digital single . yui commented , "I'm used to only play an acoustic guitar , but I've been playing the electric guitar a lot lately . Kamisama was one of the 1st songs I played on the electric guitar , so it's important to me . I hope Kamisama lifts your spirits when you listen to it ." .

Kuuki & Toumei na Uta were released digitally before Mi was physically released . Kuuki was released digitally on 5th Nov while Toumei na Uta was released digitally on 29th Oct .

Both songs showcase rather interesting music styles . Kuuki is quite a gritty sounding number while Toumei na Uta is more or less a straightforward mid tempo number that's quite piano driven .

Ohayou no Kiss wo & Suiteki are the next 2 songs after Toumei na Uta . Ohayou no Kiss wo is quite a chilled out number while Suiteki was accompanied by a rather strong Xylophone driven melody which I found it quite charming .

Subarashii Sekai is FLOWER FLOWER's 5th digital single . It was picked to be used as the ending theme for TV Tokyo's late-night drama Tamagawa Kuyakusho OF THE DEAD that premiered on 3rd Oct . The drama starred Hayashi Kento & was directed by Kawahara Masahiko .

Sekiwotatsu is yet another edgy sounding number which's almost in the same music vein as Kuuki .

The longest track in Mi , Hikari is 7:07 mins which's quite daunting . I would have preferred this song if it didn't sounded as though it's 1 long track that kept going on & on without stopping .

Kimi no Koto was released digitally on 12th Nov before Mi was physically released . It's 1 of the more simpler sounding tracks in the album as the melody of the song is just an acoustic guitar backing yui up . Kimi no Koto is also equally long like Hikari but it's not that bad on whole .

Start Line follows after Kimi no Koto . It's a straight forward sounding track & I feel it's 1 of the less complicated songs in Mi .

Tsuki is FLOWER FLOWER's 1st digital single & it was picked to be used in the ads for au titled au PERFECT SYNC./REAL . This song was the 1st release that showcased the start of the band's subsequent future music releases .

Bye Bye is the final track available in Mi & it was released digitally on 19th Nov , a week before Mi gets released .

Surprisingly with a title like Bye Bye , I thought it was going to be a ballad but turns out I was wrong as it starts off rather calm but along the way , the song gets really amped up big time although on whole the overall feeling is that Bye Bye felt like a mixture of various sounds were mashed up/thrown in .

In 2012 , despite having huge commercial success , YUI announced her retirement as a solo artist . Luckily in 2013 , she re-emerged as a member of rock band FLOWER FLOWER . YUI (now stylised as yui) aimed to make a new start & began her musical journey anew with the release of her new band's debut album Mi .

I'm sure the 1st reaction when people found out that YUI has came back in the scene with a new look + a new band , they ultimately going to assume that what FLOWER FLOWER does will be almost the same if not identical to what YUI used to do during her solo days .

But it turns out that YUI & FLOWER FLOWER's stuff are not the same despite being sung by the same person . I feel that what FLOWER FLOWER does , it's something completely out of yui's music comfort zone as certain things they've done , I can't imagine yui doing it should she still be a soloist & vice versa .

On whole Mi is quite an interesting release although I must admit it's not an easy album to listen to as quite a lot of the songs do not sound mainstream & let alone , another drawback is that almost 1/2 of Mi comprises of songs that're over 5 mins long which perhaps let me not to enjoy it as much as I thought I would .

That said in a way it's still heartening to know yui is still in the business even though more or less she has already left her solo days behind . It reminds to be seen whether will she head back to being solo or if she will continue her activities with FLOWER FLOWER as a long term venture .

But at the end of the day , Mi is a commendable effort & it's a new chapter laid out coming from someone that used to be known as YUI .
