V6 – 蝶 [33rd Single]

June 5, 2008 at 8:02 pm (V6) (, )

V6’s 33rd single, entitled 蝶, was released on 05.28.08. 蝶 was for the theme song for dorama Keishichou Sousa Ikka 9 Gakari.

The single opens up with the song that gives it its name, 蝶. The song opens up with a Spanish interlude from a guitar before the beat comes along with a hot dance beat with the same Spanish guitar playing a role in the instrumentation. When the first verse starts, the vocals work perfectly with the music to create a fun atmosphere. The hook serves as a bridge as the instrumentation slightly changes to introduce it and that slight change is actually quite addictive. The chorus features some nice harmonization from the boys and some true power as well. The pure instrumental section is wonderful as it spotlights the beauty of the instrumentation.  The fun atmosphere somewhat masks the sexual energy that burns in the song but it’s a wonderful song that shows off V6’s power.

Keep A Chance is the B-side that is present on all versions of the single. The song begins with a sweet and soft piano beginning before the more uptempo jazzy instrumentation. The vocals during the first verse work well with the sound to make the atmosphere of the feeling. Following is the hook, which consists of a fast-paced rap. It’s a fresh addition to the song that sounds great. The chorus sounds a little bit cheesy but overall it’s a nice addition to the song and is pretty enjoyable and the ending flows well into the second verse. The pure instrumental section is enjoyable as it puts an emphasis on the pretty and fun instrumentation. Keep A Chance is an enjoyable B-side and the boys do a great job of keeping the spirit of the song alive.

The regular edition features two more B-sides in addition to Keep A Chance, the first being SHOW ME. The song begins with a video-game like opening before blasting into an uptempo dance song. The vocals work well to create a very fun atmosphere perfect for smiling and dancing. The hook introduces a slight change in instrumentation and the vocal power becomes slightly more strong. The chorus is very enjoyable featuring some repeated words but some awesome instrumentation and harmonization. The pure instrumental section sounds great, spotlighting the fun and awesome instrumentation. Although SHOW ME appears as a B-side, it’s definitely A-side material. The song is fun and energetic and is definitely a reason to get the regular edition of the single.

The other B-side only present on the regular edition is Twilight emotion. The song begins with a very cool and sleek instrumentation before going into a more fun and poppy sound. As the first verse starts, the vocals match that sleek sound to make a great feel and sound. The chorus is a little cheesy with the English lines but still a great part of the sound that sounds great. The pure instrumental section puts a spotlight on the fun and happy atmosphere of the song to make an enjoyable listening experience. Twilight emotion is a fun and poppy song that is another definite incentive to buy the regular edition of the single.

Single Ranking: A +
