Buono! – ガチンコでいこう! [4th Single]

September 30, 2008 at 9:27 pm (Buono!) (, )

Buono!’s 4th single, entitled ガチンコでいこう!, was released on 08.20.08. The title track was used as the fourth ending theme for the anime series Shugo Chara!

ガチンコでいこう! is a song quite similar to previous single A-side, Kiss! Kiss! Kiss! Opening the song is an upbeat poppish instrumental with rock tints, quite similar to Kiss! Kiss! Kiss! The first verse comes in and the vocals are nice, going with the instrumentation nicely and when the music takes backhand to the girls’ voices, then it’s really enjoyable. The chorus is a little lacking as it doesn’t have that certain spark that Kiss! Kiss! Kiss! and there’s no harmonica to stand out in the instrumentation. There is a certain out-of-this-world quality that comes through the pure instrumental section and it’s a very nice touch. This song is nice but it feels like a watered down version of their last single.

れでぃぱんさぁ is a much stronger song. The song starts off with a more upbeat and sleek instrumental that instantly catches the listener’s ear. On the first verses, the girls sound fantastic here, suiting the more mature sound of the song perfectly. The certain rapidity with which they sing the lyrics really works in the song’s favor and makes it stand out. The chorus is a bit of a let down after such strong verses and had the instrumentation had a little more variety for that section, it would have standed out more. The pure instrumental section is wonderful as the guitar comes out to play strongly. This song definitely should have been the A-side because it’s so much mature and catchy.

In order to promote the single, a PV for ガチンコでいこう! was made. The video features the girls just hanging around doing things such as stacking blocks and throwing darts as well as a dance section worth checking out. It’s not a great video but it matches the happy atmosphere of the song.

Single Ranking: B

Buono!’s fourth single is nice although the A-side from this single sounds like a re-hashed version of Kiss! Kiss! Kiss! Had the A-side been れでぃぱんさぁ, the listener could have fallen in love with this single more easily.
