Kobukuro - Silhouette (Ano Taiyou ga , Kono Sekai wo Terashitsuzukeru Yoni.'s B-side)
Silhouette serves as the B-side for Kobukuro's 21st single Ano Taiyou ga , Kono Sekai wo Terashitsuzukeru You ni. (The Sun , To Keep The Light Of This World) which was last week released on 27th April .
The inspirational ballad Ano Taiyou ga , Kono Sekai wo Terashitsuzukeru You ni. serves as the theme song for the mountain climbing adventure film Take - Gaku - which stars Shun Oguri & Nagasawa Masami & it said to provide a musical ray of hope .
Both songs in the single are equally long , clocking in at almost 6 mins each + but the good news's that the quality of Kobukuro's material doesn't suffer in the process .
In Ano Taiyou ga , Kono Sekai wo Terashitsuzukeru You ni. , Kuroda tends to lead the song a lot more than Kobuchi . In Silhouette , the reverse happens .
On 1st listen , Silhouette sounds like a cross mix of their previous single releases such as Blue Bird & Niji (Rainbow) . It's not a bad thing for sure because I really like both songs that I singled out .
Then again , after being in the business for more than 10 years , Kobukuro are more or less seasoned veterans which's why frankly , most of their works are real solid & very memorable to listen & Ano Taiyou ga , Kono Sekai wo Terashitsuzukeru You ni. is no exception .
