Himuro Kyosuke - Keep the faith
Keep the faith is found as track #13 in the 2nd disc of Himuro Kyosuke's 20th Anniversary ALL SINGLES COMPLETE BEST JUST MOVIN' ON ~ALL THE-S-HIT~ which was released on 11th June 2008 .
20th Anniversary ALL SINGLES COMPLETE BEST JUST MOVIN' ON ~ALL THE-S-HIT~ was released to celebrate Himuro's 20th anniversary as a solo artiste .
There're a total of 30 tracks in this 2 CDs best compilation of Himuro but Keep the faith is the only track I was interested to hear because I know Himuro had a hand in cowriting & composing KAT-TUN's 5th single of the same title .
Honestly I really thought that Himuro would covered/sing his own version of KAT-TUN's which in a way , I was 1/2 right that the version found in 20th Anniversary ALL SINGLES COMPLETE BEST JUST MOVIN' ON ~ALL THE-S-HIT~ , lyrically it's the same as KAT-TUN's but to a certain extent .
I was able to catch hold of new lyrics in Himuro's version which I was surprised as I never thought it can become his own song , instead of singing/covering on what KAT-TUN has done before .
The result's that Himuro's take on Keep the faith is kind of like taking his own unique spin of things which I thought it's neat .
Sound wise , it's a lot more gritty , aggressive & meaner than KAT-TUN's but overall , it's nice to hear something different for a change & not just a normal cover of a song of an artiste .
