WE ARE GO / ALL ALONE is UVERworld's 29th single & it was released last month on 27th July .
UVERworld's last single release was last Aug's I LOVE THE WORLD while their last double A-side single release was 2013's Fight For Liberty / Wizard CLUB .
The 1st A-side WE ARE GO was picked to be used as the opening theme for TV Tokyo's anime Pazudora X . Vocalist TAKUYA∞ commented , "We felt it was our mission to create a song that thoroughly pursued our individuality . I think it's a song that we can enjoy with our friends during our concerts ."
Pazudora X is an anime adaptation of the Nintendo 3DS game software Pazudora X Kami no Shou / Ryu no Shou which was released on 28th July .
The 2nd A-side ALL ALONE is used as the 1st theme song of UVERworld's original footage project 1byousaki Mukau Mono to Tada Otozureru Mono . This project was originally drafted by TAKUYA∞ & Nakamura Teppei who has worked on many of UVERworld's music videos , serves as the director and scriptwriter .
Instead of new B-sides material , 2 live audio tracks are included in the single . Colors of the Heart is UVERworld's 4th single & the live take of the song was recorded almost 11 years ago at Marine Messe Fukuoka .
While Kokoro ga Sasu Basho to Kuchiguse Soshite Kimi ga Tsuite Kuru is found as track #16 in UVERworld's 2nd album PROGLUTION & the live rendition was recorded 8 years ago at Zepp Tokyo .
Almost a year since their last single release , UVERworld is back to break some new ground with their latest single WE ARE GO / ALL ALONE .
I LOVE THE WORLD is still a great UVERworld single song & luckily WE ARE GO / ALL ALONE managed to live up to expectations especially since UVERworld hasn't release anything this year , until now .
UVERworld's music is notorious to get into as all the while their music is not easy to get into but thankfully , WE ARE GO / ALL ALONE is a win in the bag .
I liked Fight For Liberty / Wizard CLUB & although as usual it took me a while to get into WE ARE GO / ALL ALONE , end of the day I enjoy the single .
Preference wise , I prefer WE ARE GO as it has a great upbeat melody that's heavily drums driven with saxophone sounds thrown in for good measure while ALL ALONE is a bit difficult to get into initially as it's almost 6 mins long but this mid tempo song contrasts WE ARE GO quite well .
Hopefully it wouldn't take UVERworld this long to release another single again but for now WE ARE GO / ALL ALONE is worth checking out .
