Takasugi Satomi – ありがとう [5th Single]

August 14, 2008 at 12:40 am (Takasugi Satomi) (, )

Takasugi Satomi’s 5th single, entitled ありがとう, was released on 06.25.08.

ありがとう is a very pretty and sweet ballad that shows Satomi’s ability to compliment the music. Opening the song is part of the chorus, sung with very pretty vocals that capture the song’s atmosphere strongly. Following is the first verse and she uses deeper vocals here that the listener can’t help but follow. The full chorus comes in next and Satomi’s vocals continue to be pretty, really catching the listener’s ear. Beauty shines through on the ending pure instrumental sequence, making for a perfect finish. This is a great ballad and one of Satomi’s standout songs.

The B-side of the single is もう一度はじめよう. There is a nice soft feeling that comes through the opening instrumentation, which is nice. She brings some very smooth vocals on the first verse, capturing the song’s atmosphere strongly. The chorus is a little bland so that it feels very long as the song clocks in at roughly six minutes. It’s anice song but it should have been cut shorter because it feels very long.

Single Ranking: A –

ありがとう is a beautiful ballad and Satomi brings some pretty vocals to compliment the music. The B-side features a similar sound although the song does drag on for too long. Overall though, it’s a good single and the A-side is one of her stronger songs to date.
