NEVER LAND - Demonstration Vol.1
2) Ningyo Hime (Mermaid Princess)
Demonstration Vol.1 is a single released by NEVER LAND & its release date is unknown .
There're 2 songs found in Demonstration Vol.1 in which the 1st track Pianist is something that I'm already am very familiar with since it is found as track #1 in NEVER LAND's mini album Beautiful Days which's the group's only proper release to date .
Still , it's comforting/nice to hear Pianist again in Demonstration Vol.1 . The difference found in Demonstration Vol.1 & in Beautiful Days is that in Beautiful Days , it's a few seconds longer .
Melody wise , Demonstration Vol.1's Pianist has a more raw organic sound coupled with great electric guitar riffs while Beautiful Days's Pianist is quite piano driven to a certain extent .
Still , I like both versions & I think it's great for AKIHIDE to put his own unique spin for both takes on Pianist .
Also you can hear some really nice soft subtle piano tunes being tinkled at the end of Demonstration Vol.1's Pianist prior to the conclusion of things which's great .
Ningyo Hime (Mermaid Princess) is a straight up no nonsense rock no. . What I like about Ningyo Hime is that the song gets my attention on 1st listen .
What makes Ningyo Hime stands out is the aggressive mean gritty electric guitar riffs attached & this leads to a really neat package that Ningyo Hime has to offer .
