Arashi- Monster

2010年 5月 31日

Finally a HQ Arashi cover! I love how dark it is, and all the boys look so professional.

I was really excited to review Monster. For me Arashi is either hit or miss. Some of their songs are too upbeat and happy for my tastes, but Monster is the perfect blend among dark, light, and seduction. There’s a nice blend of sexy and sweet during the chorus, and great harmonization from the boys. For some reason whenever I listen to this song I’m reminded of L’arc~en~ciels Drink it Down. What’s great about this song is that it tells a story; it isn’t just a bunch of mindless lyrics. Basically… I love Arashi!

Spiral is a nice compliment to Monster. We still have that blend of sexy and dark, but this time with a more Latin flair. I’m not big on fusion stuff, but Arashi could make even bossa nova sexy. Yeah… pretty spicy song.

Overall: What’s not to love?
