Stereopony- Tsukiakari no Michishirube

2009年 11月 21日

I love the Stereopony girls’ style. They have this alternative-edgy look to them. Nice =]

Tsukiakari no Michishirube, signpost of the moonlight, is my Stereopony debut. I had heard their name around before, but the first time I heard their music was when I was watching Darker than Black: Ryuusei no Gemini, for which Tsukiakari no Michishirube is the opening song. Aimi’s vocals, coupled with electric guitar, open up the song. The song has a progressive feel during the verses, but things get exciting in the chorus. The chorus creates this hopeful and determined atmosphere, which is perfect for an anime like the Darker than Black sequel.

Things slow down in the next song, Daidai Iro. The song reminds me of a toned down version of Smilife. It wasn’t my favorite song on the single, just because it pales in comparison to the A-side.

The opening of Fuzz is very similar to the opening of Smilife. However, being that the song is just a little over 2 minutes long, it opts for a very energetic feel. It’s a shame that this song is so short, because rather than making this an “experimental” interlude, this song would have been great in full version. We hear very little vocals, but the guitar technique makes up for it.

Overall: Tsukiakari no Michishirube shows Stereopony’s ability to tap different kinds of styles with their music, thus giving me a hopeful future for Stereopony’s future.
