[Single] ASIAN KUNG-FU GENERATION – Maigo Inu to Ame no Beat

2010年 6月 14日

Ahh man…. My procrastination levels have increased by  a lot since summer started.

SO, here we have Asian Kung-Fu Generation’s newest single!! Interesting cover choice… Naked girl sitting in a cardboard box with a whole bunch of chaos about her. In any case, it’s similar to their other covers.

Maigo Inu to Ame no Beat is a rather chill song. It uses some background trumpets and has a lilting feeling to it. I kind of wonder where their punk element has gone. They have been leaning towards more pop-like sounds. In general, it has a simple form. Not something that I’d listen to all the time, but it might be one of those “I’m in the mood for this” songs. Plus it might be fun to sing all those “La’s” at the end hehe.

Ameagari no Kibou is  a more upbeat song. This is a little closer to their usual style I think. The melody is more active in this song. It still has a rather relaxed feel about it and is more involving of the band in my opinion. I don’t know what else to say for this song. Pretty average stuff to me.

Overall: Good production quality and whatnot, but nothing profound. Chill songs.
