V6 - Aru Hi Negai ga Kanattanda / All For You

CD

CD + DVD A

CD + DVD B

Aru Hi Negai ga Kanattanda / All For You is V6's 51st single & it was released on 5th June .

V6's latest single release comes in almost 5 months + since their previous single Super Powers / Right Now .

Aru Hi Negai ga Kanattanda / All For You is V6's 5th back to back double A side single release since 2017's Can't Get Enough / Hanahirake .

Both Aru Hi Negai ga Kanattanda & All For You have videos made .

The 1st A-side Aru Hi Negai ga Kanattanda was used as the theme song for Tokusou9 Special & the 2nd season of detective drama Tokusou9 starring member Inohara Yoshihiko .

Aru Hi Negai ga Kanattanda was written and composed by Ketsumeishi's RYOJI .

The 2nd A-side All For You was used in the ads of 7/11 starring member Sakamoto Masayuki . Created by AmPm , All For You is described as a danceable song .

In the CD only version of Aru Hi Negai ga Kanattanda / All For You , these 2 songs are included as B-sides :

- Sweet Bitter Rain
- NOIZ

For V6 to release 5 back to back double A-side singles since 2017 , it's quite something but seeing that in recent years they have not been that musically active as before , it's better than nothing .

And just like their past double A-side single releases , both Aru Hi Negai ga Kanattanda & All For You are completely different from each other in a good way .

Between both A-sides , I like Aru Hi Negai ga Kanattanda a lot more over All For You . Ketsumeishi's RYOJI did a great job creating the upbeat positive driven song for V6 .

On the other hand , All For You is probably V6's 1st full English sung song that they've put out , something that caught me a bit off guard when I 1st heard it .

Lyrically , All For You does not sound awkward but it's quite raunchy . Somewhat , I wonder does V6 know what they're singing about . Also it would have been better if All For You was a bit longer as it kind of ended abruptly without knowing .

That said , I respect V6 for tackling a wide variety of music genres in their discography . Some works while some might not but end of the day it shows that they're not afraid to take risks in their music .

It reminds to be seen if V6's next studio album will include all A-sides of the singles they've put out & based on previous experience , that doesn't tend to happen .

Alternatively what can happen is V6 will exclude some A-side songs while they retain some of the video footages in the DVD , something that they've already done with regards to The ONES .

flumpool - HELP

CD

CD + DVD

1) HELP
2) Sora no Tabiji
3) HOPE
4) Tsunagari

HELP is flumpool's 19th single & it was released last month on 22nd May .

flumpool's last single release was 2017's Toutoi .

Prior to the release of HELP , flumpool had been on hiatus due to vocalist/frontman Ryuuta's health issues .

Before HELP was released physically , the A-side was 1st released digitally on 4th May .

flumpool's new artist photo and the jacket covers of HELP were shot by Shinto Takeshi .

All 4 tracks in HELP were created when flumpool was on hiatus .

In HELP , Ryuuta sings about his struggles while he was receiving treatment for his throat condition as well as his feelings when he couldn't call out for help .

3 B-sides are included in HELP & 1 of them Sora no Tabiji was chosen to use as the theme song for the documentary movie Innovative Brewer SORACHI1984 .

When flumpool announced they were making a comeback , I was ecstatic as when they went on hiatus in late 2017 , I was crushed as I wasn't sure how long it will take for Ryuuta to recover .

Now that flumpool are back , I couldn't be any happier about it and lyrically HELP described what Ryuuta gone through when he had to seek treatment for his throat .

Ryuuta used to have issues with his throat so this wasn't the 1st time for something like to happen & I do hope it will not happen again as he and others don't deserve to experience this .

With that said , I enjoy HELP & my favourite B-side out of the lot is HOPE but the other 2 songs are also pretty good as well .

Hopefully I will not need to wait long for new flumpool material to surface but til then , welcome back flumpool you'll been missed !

Hey ! Say ! JUMP - Ai Dake ga Subete -What do you want?-

CD + DVD

CD + DVD (Mitazono Version)

JUMPremium BOX Version

Ai Dake ga Subete -What do you want?- is Hey ! Say ! JUMP's 1st DVD single & it was released last month on 29th May .

Hey ! Say ! JUMP's 24th single Lucky-Unlucky / Oh! my darling was released a week prior to Ai Dake ga Subete -What do you want?- .

Both Lucky-Unlucky / Oh! my darling & Ai Dake ga Subete -What do you want?- do not feature member Okamoto Keito .

Ai Dake ga Subete -What do you want?- was chosen to promote season 3 of the TV Asahi drama Kaseifu no Mitazono starring member Inoo Kei & TOKIO's Matsuoka (which he has done as the lead role since the 1st season of the drama) .

The A-side is described as a number infused with a Latin flavour . Ai Dake ga Subete -What do you want?- has a melancholic Latin sound that is reminiscent of the loneliness and strong inner passion of the drama's hero , Mitazono .

Only 1 B-side is included in Ai Dake ga Subete -What do you want?- . Bloom is only available in the CD + DVD (Mitazono Version) of the DVD single .

It's interesting that Hey ! Say ! JUMP decided to follow in the same footsteps as NEWS & Domoto Koichi by releasing their 1st DVD single which's something they have not done before until now .

And it's not surprising that when I 1st heard the material of both Lucky-Unlucky / Oh! my darling & Ai Dake ga Subete -What do you want?- , Ai Dake ga Subete -What do you want?- is the 1 that stood out to me which didn't gave me any 2nd thoughts unlike Lucky-Unlucky .

The B-side Bloom is only ok for my liking & it's evident that Ai Dake ga Subete -What do you want?- overshadows Bloom quite significantly .

Hey ! Say ! JUMP made 2 different videos for Ai Dake ga Subete -What do you want?- & this's 1 of the rare times that I like the alternate / Mitazono version of the video a lot more than the original , which TOKIO's Matsuoka made a cameo towards the end of Ai Dake ga Subete -What do you want?- alternate / Mitazono version .

Hey ! Say ! JUMP next release Hey ! Say ! JUMP LIVE TOUR SENSE or LOVE DVD + Blu-ray will be released next month on 24th July .

CD + DVD B :

CHUDOKU

FREE HUGS! is Kis-My-Ft2's 8th album & it was released on 24th April .

Kis-My-Ft2's last album release was last April's Yummy!! .

FREE HUGS! was released in 3 different editions & this time round , the new album's theme centres on sharing love , beyond the borderline with Kis-My-Ft2's music .

3 singles are included in Kis-My-Ft2's newest album .

The 2nd CD in the 2 CDs version of FREE HUGS! includes 7 solo songs . The group's last album to include solo songs was 5th album I SCREAM but this time round , no videos are made for the new solo songs .

For the new solo songs in the 2nd disc / 2 CDs version of FREE HUGS! , these musicians created them for each member :

Kitayama Hiromitsu - I Don't Like Mondays
Senga Kento - CHEMISTRY's Kawabata Kaname
Miyata Toshiya - Hayashibara Megumi
Yokoo Wataru - Billy Ken
Fujigaya Taisuke - Osawa Shinichi
Tamamori Yuta - Hirai Dai
Nikaido Takashi - Diggy-MO'

Both CD + DVDs of FREE HUGS! included 1 different group track each .

After the album opening "8th" Overture , FREE HUGS! wasted no time diving straight into the 1st album track HUG & WALK .

HUG & WALK is the only album track to have a video made & it was filmed in Singapore , making this the 1st time Kis-My-Ft2 filmed a video overseas .

In addition , Kis-My-Ft2 filmed 2 different videos for HUG & WALK .

I will not deny that I was really shocked when the news media wrote that Kis-My-Ft2 came to my country to film HUG & WALK which happened in February . It was not leader Kitayama's 1st time here in my country unlike the other 6 members as he came here years ago as part of Takizawa Kabuki 2015 .

The fact that Kis-My-Ft2 chose my country to film the video for HUG & WALK out of so many other countries as part of their 1st time filming a music video outside of Japan , it's a real honour especially seeing the numerous landmark attractions in the HUG & WALK video that I instantly recongise .

Song wise , I frankly feel that HUG & WALK is only ok for my liking as I prefer the other new material made available in FREE HUGS! .

The next song A.D.D.I.C.T. is 1 of my favourite album tracks in FREE HUGS! & seeing that the current Dome tour Kis-My-Ft2 LIVE TOUR 2019 FREE HUGS! used that song as the opening no. for the setlist , it's hardly a surprise why so .

When I 1st heard A.D.D.I.C.T. , I straight away love it on 1st listen as it's 1 of the many reasons why Kis-My-Ft2 are still so good when comes to doing extremely rock driven no.s as compared to cheesy Johnny Junior inspired like music .

It's a bit of a shame that a video wasn't made for A.D.D.I.C.T. as it would have been awesome to see .

After 2 back to back upbeat songs , things slowed down a bit for the 3rd album track , THIS CRAZY LOVE .

L.O.V.E. is 1 of 3 single songs included in FREE HUGS! . This was included in Kis-My-Ft2's 21st single LOVE & it was used in the ads promoting topical itch cream Unacool starring Kis-My-Ft2 themselves .

The other song in LOVE ie. Because I Love You is not included in FREE HUGS! .

It's a bit of shame that Kis-My-Ft2 didn't include Because I Love You as up to now , I still like it a lot more than L.O.V.E. but the upside is that at least they made a video for Because I Love You as it deserves to have 1 .

Saturday Life & #1 Girl are the next 2 album material . I think both song are only ok for my liking , same with HUG & WALK but not to the point where I'm turned off by them .

Kimi wo Daisuki da is Kis-My-Ft2's 23rd single & it was used as the theme song for the movie Tora-san ~Boku ga Neko ni Natta Wake~ which Kitayama made his debut lead movie appearance in it .

Described as a rock ballad , Kimi wo Daisuki da was written by Fujii Fumiya & arranged by Kameda Seiji .

Out of the singles included in FREE HUGS! , Kimi wo Daisuki da is my favourite out of the lot . I'm surprised Kis-My-Ft2 do not release ballads as singles often but when they've done so , they do them quite well .

Boku Ha Kimi Nashi de Ai o Chi Renai is probably the most experimental track in FREE HUGS! as it surprisingly has an Oriental flair to it .

Just like A.D.D.I.C.T. , I would have loved to see a video made for Boku Ha Kimi Nashi de Ai o Chi Renai as well .

The next 4 album tracks are pretty good in their own respective right . Bring It On & Distance are 2 back to back angsty driven no.s while HUGTIME + Yeah E Yeah!!!!!!! showcased a more softer + happy upbeat sides of Kis-My-Ft2 respectively .

Kimi,Boku. is the last single song included in FREE HUGS! . Originally 1st released as Kis-My-Ft2's 22nd single , Kimi,Boku. is described as a pop love song & the song conveys the idea that "I am here because you are here . "

Promo wise , Kimi,Boku. was used in the ads of Kowa's Hokkairo Shin Nukunuku Touban featuring Kis-My-Ft2 themselves .

My opinions towards Kimi,Boku. weren't great but after Kis-My-Ft2 kept doing numerous TV performances to promote the song , my perception on it luckily has changed for the better .

Concluding FREE HUGS! in the 1st CD of the album is Rura Rurara which was created by Mrs. GREEN APPLE's Omori Motoki .

Rura Rurara to me is 1 of the best album tracks in Kis-My-Ft2's discography & out of all the other new material in FREE HUGS! , this's my favourite for very obvious reasons .

Same with A.D.D.I.C.T. , I loved Rura Rurara the moment I 1st heard it as it's so enpowering & concludes FREE HUGS! on a great positive note .

The fact that Kis-My-Ft2 chose to perform Rura Rurara and not HUG & WALK when they promoted FREE HUGS! on TV , that means something & it's a real shame that they didn't made a video for the song which would have awesome .

Tequila! -Tequila- & CHUDOKU are the 2 different group bonus tracks included in both CD + DVDs versions of FREE HUGS! .

Ironically , even though they're bonus tracks , these 2 album tracks are my least favourite & given a choice , I would skip them as I think they offer nothing new musically .

With regards to the solo songs available in the 2nd disc / 2 CDs version of FREE HUGS! , I like Fujigaya , Senga , Kitayama & Tamamori solos .

I like Senga's I miss your smile & Tamamori's Love Story especialy Love Story which presents a very different music side of Tamamori .

CHEMISTRY's Kawabata Kaname did a great job creating Senga's solo as I feel he geniunely can sing quite well in Kis-My-Ft2 . As for Fujigaya's Love=X2U & Kitayama's DON'T WANNA DIE , both are not bad and considering that they're both the main lead singers in the group , it's not really a surprise they're able to handle things vocally on their own without that much problems .

For the other 3 solos , I'm not a fan of them & when I 1st heard Nikaido's Hug Star , I was really shocked as I thought it would have been something more suitable for Fujigaya to sing & not Nikaido .

Kis-My-Ft2 is giving out Free Hugs ! The group's 8th original album carries the ambitious and inspirational theme of "hug with music" .

I will not deny that I did not liked Kis-My-Ft2's last 2 studio albums & this happens when artistes release material on an annual basis where quality will bound to suffer which's evident in both Kis-My-Ft2 & NEWS where I was quite disappointed with WORLDISTA .

That's why before I listened to FREE HUGS! , I decided to lower my expectations & luckily that worked as I was pleasantly surprised how much I enjoyed Kis-My-Ft2's latest album .

Kis-My-Ft2's last 2 studio albums to me weren't good as the material in MUSIC COLOSSEUM didn't match the album's concept & Yummy!! was straight up boring except for a few group tracks & the non group tracks that were great .

Kis-My-Ft2's past studio albums had a mixture of both group & non group tracks and in some cases , the new group material tend to be better than the non group tracks & vice versa .

I guess this time round why FREE HUGS! is a lot more better than I thought is that there were a lot more new group material that were able to be on par if not better than the singles which's not an easy thing to do .

Even the not so good album material in FREE HUGS! aren't so terrible until I want to skip the whole album entirely . And it's definitely smart for Kis-My-Ft2 to separate the solo songs from the main disc which's a wise thing to do .

That said , FREE HUGS! is 1 of Kis-My-Ft2 better put together albums on whole . I still feel that they should not releease albums on a yearly basis just like NEWS but I doubt this will happen anytime soon .

And it wouldn't be long before Kis-My-Ft2 is back with new material as they will release their 24th single HANDS UP next month on 10th July .

Hey ! Say ! JUMP - Lucky-Unlucky / Oh! my darling

CD

CD + DVD A

CD + DVD B

Lucky-Unlucky / Oh! my darling is Hey ! Say ! JUMP's 24th single & it was released last month on 22nd May .

This's Hey ! Say ! JUMP 1st of 2 back to back single releases they put out last month while their last double A-side single release was 2017's Precious Girl / Are You There? (A.Y.T.) .

Both Lucky-Unlucky / Oh! my darling & the group's 1st DVD single Ai Dake ga Subete -What do you want?- do not feature member Okamoto Keito .

Lucky-Unlucky & Oh! my darling have promo tie in's and videos made .

Lucky-Unlucky was used as the theme song for the NTV drama Atama ni Kite mo Aho to wa Tatakau na! starring member Chinen Yuri .

Described as a city pop no. , Lucky-Unlucky is a upbeat dance song which delivers energy and a positive message to the listener .

On the other hand , the 2nd A-side Oh! my darling was used in the ads of Kose Cosmeport's Lachesca . Member Yamada Ryosuke only appeared in the Kose Cosmeport's Lachesca ads , not the whole group .

For Oh! my darling , this's sung solo by Yamada & this song is described as a discotheque dance no. while the last time Yamada released his debut solo single was 2013's Mystery Virgin .

A total of 4 B-sides are available in all 3 versions of Lucky-Unlucky / Oh! my darling :

- Entertainment (CD Only Track)
- Bambino (CD Only Track)
- Last Dance (CD + DVD A Track)
- Mayonaka no Shadow Boy ~SENSE or LOVE Remix~ (CD + DVD B Track) ; 4th single

Right off the bat I will not deny that my initial thoughts towards Hey ! Say ! JUMP's latest single offering Lucky-Unlucky / Oh! my darling weren't great as I thought most of the material sounded like leftover tracks from last Aug's SENSE or LOVE album .

Between both A-sides , I probably pick Oh! my darling between the 2 as it's quite hard to believe it has been so long since Yamada last released Mystery Virgin . Not to say that Lucky-Unlucky is not good , I wouldn't mind listening to it , just that it wouldn't be the 1st song I would recommend to someone who don't listen to Hey ! Say ! JUMP's music .

Time no doubt played a big part in changing my opinions towards Lucky-Unlucky / Oh! my darling & that goes for the numerous TV promotion Hey ! Say ! JUMP did for the single as well .

B-sides wise , I like Last Dance the most out of the lot as it's the only 1 that's a ballad . Entertainment is pretty edgy good while I felt that Bambino was only ok for my liking .

Mayonaka no Shadow Boy is still 1 of my favourite Hey ! Say ! JUMP singles & the SENSE or LOVE Remix of the song is quite interesting . It's a bit unfortunate the remix is quite short as it would have been better if it was much longer .

Hey ! Say ! JUMP's 1st DVD single Ai Dake ga Subete -What do you want?- was released the week after Lucky-Unlucky / Oh! my darling & my review on it will come soon .

GLAY - Gengou

Gengou is a song by GLAY which was released digitally on 26th April .

This song was written by guitarist TAKURO to mark the beginning of the new Reiwa era .

This's 1 of the rare cases where it's best to watch the accompanied music video in order to understand Gengou better as before that my opinion about the song wasn't that great .

Watching the video that GLAY made for Gengou made me appreciate the song in a different manner especially since I wasn't born during the Showa era .

Through Gengou , GLAY shows respect for those who have lived through the Showa & Heisei eras as well as encouragement to the generation who will be living in the new Reiwa era .

With that said , GLAY's 57th single G4・V-Democracy 2019- will be released next month on 2nd July .

Ken Hirai - Ite mo Tatte mo

Ite mo Tatte mo is a song by Ken Hirai & it was released digitally on 29th May .

Ken's 1st new material release for 2019 , Ite mo Tatte mo was chosen to be used to promote the movie Machida Kun no Sekai .

Credits wise , Ken wrote & composed Ite mo Tatte mo while UTA arranged it .

Ken created Ite mo Tatte mo after he read the Machida Kun no Sekai movie script .

Looks can be deceiving as Ite mo Tatte mo digital cover are nothing like the promo pictures of Ken .

That said , despite the song title , Ite mo Tatte mo is quirky & it sounds like nothing like what Ken normally does .

Also even though Ite mo Tatte mo was not given a physical release , it's surprisingly Ken chose to make a video accompanying the song .

Normally , Ken's videos ain't that great but Ite mo Tatte mo is probably his most amusing yet quite well thought video to date as quite a considerable amount of effort and time went into creating it .

I do hope that Ite mo Tatte mo will get a physical release in the near future . Not sure single wise but at most I'm sure Ken would include it in a future studio album of his .
