Puzzle

Kanjani∞’s 3rd studio album, entitled PUZZLE, was released on 04.15.09. The singles released before the album were イッツ マイ ソウル, ワッハッハー and 無責任ヒーロー.

The album opens up with the fun upbeat number, 一秒 KISS. The song opens up with an impressive rock guitar solo before the full instrumentation comes in with the chorus. It’s very upbeat and energetic, giving the atmosphere of a fun party. The saxophones are a nice touch in making the music stand apart from the usual sound. Their vocals actually sound really good and compliment the overall style of the song very well. This continues onto the verses and the English phrases like “I need you” and “I kiss you” stand out nicely.The guitar sounds great on the pure instrumental section and it makes the listener appreciate just how cool the music really is. This is a really nice way to begin the album since it keeps the energy up.

Up next is アカイシンキロウ. Beginning the song is a sweet and pretty instrumental that is so uplifting and happy, that it will make you smile. The first verse comes in and the vocals sound very good, having a certain whimsical element to them that is freeing much like the music. Even though the chorus does sound a little expected, that’s not a bad thing. The music continues to be engaging and the vocals still sound very good. The pure instrumental section is nice because it kind of takes a decent and then rises back, taking the listener on a little journey before the third verse. This is a fantastic song that is extremely catchy, keeping up the strength of the last track, even amplifying it.

パズル, the title track, is also the third track. The song opens up with a mellow instrumental that has a feeling of sadness and isolation, really catching the ear of the listener. There’s almost an orchestral sound to the music and it comes as very unexpected but very enjoyable. On the first verse, the vocals carry a lot of emotion and thus suit the music perfectly. For the chorus, it really feels like the boys are saying goodbye to someone. It was a good idea to have a simple instrumental so that the focus comes on the wonderful vocals. The pure instrumental is absolutely gorgeous and those vocalizations just make everything even better since they sound somewhat haunting but fit with the whole atmosphere of deparature. Kanjani∞ keeps it up with this song, extremely worthy of being the title track of this album.

渇いた花 is the fourth song. The song starts off very quickly with the chorus. The vocals are nice and the “let me cry” and “I wanna cry” lines stand out nicely over the jazzy instrumentation. On the verses, things feel very relaxed and smooth from the vocals to the music. The highlight of the pure instrumental section is the saxophone, which is very nice and kind of spices things up. Overall, it’s a nice track but it doesn’t actually command the listener’s attention like the last few tracks did.

The boys pick up the energy with a rock sound on ゴリゴリ. An upbeat rock instrumental starts the song off and the vocalizations show off some personality even though they sound a little annoying. On the first verse, it sounds like one of the guys is singing really strangely and thus it sounds very strange. When they all come together on the chorus, the music becomes slightly more aggressive and the vocals become a lot better. Honestly, the pure instrumental section doesn’t sound particularly special and it comes as completely expected judging from the previous parts. The song is okay but it doesn’t sound like anything that will wow the listener, just kind of another rock track. Perhaps if the instrumentation had been more aggressive, it would have left a more lasting impression.

イッツ マイ ソウル is the first song that was released as a single. The song begins with a happy jazzy instrumental that will pick up anyone feeling down. There is this sound that persists in the music and it’s actually pretty distracting and it takes away from the boys’ vocals, which aren’t exactly the strongest but show off their personality nicely. They sound much better on the chorus though, all together, giving the listener the sensation of happiness. There’s nothing very strong or different about the pure instrumental section but that’s still okay. Nonetheless, the song is enjoyable even if it kind of sounds like a watered down version of アカイシンキロウ.

ローリング・コースター is a slightly dark rock number. The song starts with a kind of soft rock instrumental that definitely has this slowly building energy. It comes out a little bit later when the music becomes more diverse although not much more capturing. On the verses, the vocals are nice and the music sounds the exact same so it doesn’t exactly stand out very well. The chorus has the same problem of a lack of diversity so the listener just loses interest over time. It’s not a great song but it’s okay for what it is.

My Last Train is the eigth song on the album. Opening the song is a twinkling instrumental that actually carries a sadness to it so the combination is a strong one. From the very beginning, the listener gets engaged in the story of the song. The vocals on the first verse are strong with emotion at some point, it feels like some of the members might start crying. It does feel like there’s something a little off on the chorus and it’s hard to really point out what exactly it is. The pure instrumental section sounds great and very pretty, highlighted by elements of sorrow. Nonetheless, My Last Train is a very good song for bringing out all those emotions to the forefront.

The ninth song, 無責任ヒーロー, was released before the album. The song starts off with an exciting rock instrumental and then things kind of fall flat when the chorus comes in and there’s a cute element to it. The music goes more to a jazzy and hyper sound so that sleek coolness is lost. However on the verses, they embrace that jazzy sound much more strongly and it feels like a party. The chorus is a little flat although the noises are very amusing. Having them scream things in the background is actually pretty annoying and they should have been left out. The pure instrumental section revists the more rock oriented sound that began the song, which is always nice. It’s a nice catchy song that fits well on the album.

ブリュレ is the following song. A very cool instrumental, highlighted by the acoustic guitar begins things off on a very natural note. Then more rock instruments come in and spice things up, really catching the listener’s attention. On the verses, the guitar continues to its rapid pace and the vocals compliment the music very well. Everything comes to the climax on the chorus with an aggressive instrumental and strong vocals from everyone. The softer note was a surprise but the unexpected kind of makes things a little more interesting. Of course the pure instrumental section is amazing although it feels a little shorter than it should have been. This is a very enjoyable song worth checking out.

Things stay interesting with the next song,  咲いて生きよ. Another pretty upbeat instrumental begins the song and the chorus quickly follows, making the listener want to dance along. There’s something magical about the verses. The vocals are fantastic and the music is so capturing so it’s truly a dangerous combination, proving to be very addictive. Once again, the chorus is a little expected from the music before but it’s still enjoyable. They definitely don’t drop the ball with the pure instrumental section since it sounds gorgeous and definitely attention grabbing. This is another great song from the boys of Kanjani∞ and one of the best songs on the album.

The twelfth track is ギガマジメ我ファイト. The song starts off with a cool instrumental that seems like things are going to be really sleek. However the chorus proves that to be wrong when the music is very upbeat and pretty. Even though some of the vocals are questionable, it’s still an enjoyable part of the song. The verses follow the same pattern with some nice vocals and some iffy vocals. But there is a more relaxed part on these parts so the chorus stands out from the rest of the song. Even though the pure instrumental section isn’t anything extremely new or creative, it’s nice and fits in with the rest of the song.

Song number thirteen is 情熱 Party. Opening the song is a cool instrumental with rock flare although it’s not very engaging. Overall, the song is just kind of boring and doesn’t have any high point when the listener can really get into the song.

ワッハッハー is the semifinale for the first disc. That opening laugh is definitely surprising and the following vocals sound really strange but their personalities really do come alive. Once the listener gets past that, the song is actually a nice and cool song that is perfect for summer. It’ll make you want to smile and laugh along with the boys or even pick you up when you’re in a bad mood.

The final song on the first disc of the album is どんなに離れてたって傍にいるから. A nice and natural instrumental begins the song and then the harmonica comes in, kind of killing things. It does fit with the overall atmosphere of the song but it still sounds weird. On the first verse, the vocals aren’t very good and the problem is mostly the music. It’s just not very engaging and leaves the listener wanting more. Unfortunately, that never comes to life, which makes things not so enjoyable.

CD 1: 5 Most Memorable Tracks: アカイシンキロウ / パズル / 咲いて生きよ / ブリュレ / ギガマジメ我ファイト

The second disc on the limited edition features an additional seven songs, solo tracks from each member of the group.

Shibutani Subaru is up first with his solo, words. The song begins with him counting off “1,2,3” and then the piano comes in as the sole instrument. The vocals are extremely weird and honestly annoying. When he goes a little higher, it’s a little grating. Basically the song’s shining quality is the pretty piano but that’s pretty much all there is. If the vocals were strong, this would have been a fantastic song.

The second solo comes from Okura Tadayoshi with no-no-no. The song begins with a really cool instrumental with some electronic hints, which really grabs the listener. On the first verse, his vocals really give a sexual atmosphere and it makes everyone fall deeper into the sound of the song. Although the chorus could have been stronger with a more aggressive instrumental, it’s still enjoyable and manages to keep the attention of the listener. It’s a very strong song and one worth listening to.

アイライロ isYasuda Shota’s solo track. It’s a calm pop-rock number that just doesn’t grab the attention of the listener. The vocals are okay but the music sounds so average, it detracts from the strength of the vocals.

Murakami Shingo’s solo song, One’s shadow, is next. Don’t be fooled by the title, the song is a sweet relaxing song that sounds like spring. The music is very calming and his vocals suit the music perfectly, managing to cast the listener into a dreamy state. Things pick up on the chorus as its more upbeat and fun but it stll maintains that sweet element that makes the song so memorable.

ワンシャン・ロンピン, Maruyama Ryuhei’s solo, is the fifth song. It’s a cheery and cute song which is nice but that’s about as far as it goes. Basically, the music isn’t very grabbing even though the vocals are okay. It’s just not very interesting to be honest.

Yokoyama You’s solo, 413man, is a nice calm rock kind of track. Unfortunately, like the majority of the solos, the instrumentation is the problem and doesn’t really grab the listener. The vocals are nice but it’s just not good enough to really make the song shine.

Nikishido Ryo’s solo track, Half Down, is the final solo. Truthfully, this song stands out more than his solo songs with NEWS. It’s slightly better than the last few tracks although it’s nothing that really is stellar.

The second CD of solo tracks was pretty disappointing. Only Tadayoshi and Shingo really delivered memorable songs while the rest kind of fell flat in one aspect or another.

Album Ranking: B +

Kanjani∞’s new album was a pleasant surprise since many of the tracks shined. アカイシンキロウ and パズル are definitely the highlights of the album. The album could have had a little more variety but overall it was a nice package and was more than what I expected coming from these guys.

[Part Two] From The Boys of JE

December 7, 2008 at 5:02 pm (Arashi, Hey! Say! JUMP, Kanjani∞, KAT-TUN, KinKi Kids, NEWS, SMAP, Tackey & Tsubasa, Tegomasu, TOKIO, V6) (, , , , , , , , , , )

Without a doubt, the “Kings of JE” title belong to Hey! Say! JUMP. I have fallen for these boys and am amazed at how far they’ve come since their debut single in 2007. These guys have released three singles this year and each single got better and better. Dreams come true was a very catchy and upbeat pop number that really showed the boys’ personality and made it an enjoyable listen. After that, the boys really impressed me with Your Seed / 冒険ライダー. It was with Your Seed, that I really got hooked on this group as they showed that mature sound that they do so well with. Even 冒険ライダー featured a slightly mature sound while still having that regular boyband feel. It was a perfect single and I couldn’t have asked for any better. But then they released 真夜中のシャドーボーイ and I fell in love all over again. The song featured a Spanish twist to bring out the boys mature side yet again (I think it should be manditory for all JE groups to have a Spanish influenced song since it always goes well). Along with falling in love with the music, I fell in love with the members of the group. Yamada is my absolute favorite and I’m glad he’s been the center of attention. He’s a good singer, great actor and is really hot. Yabu is my favorite BEST member and he’s extremely sexy. Thanks to both Sensei wa Erai! and Scrap Teacher, I’ve fallen for Nakajima and Daiki as well and I look forward to seeing more episodes of Scrap Teacher with them. Chinen and Takaki have considerably grown on me as well. Basically, Hey! Say! JUMP has done everything right this year except for one thing…AN ALBUM! If JE does not give them an album soon, I will go crazy so here’s to hoping we get an album in the first three months of January…

Coming in second for the “Kings of JE” is one of my favorite boybands, NEWS. The boys have released three heat1singles and one album this year, having their ups and downs. The boys’ first release of the year was with 太陽のナミダ, an absolutely fantastic dance song with Spanish and Arabian influences that sounds absolutely fantastic. Two of the B-sides on that single (バンビーナ and Lady Spider) also helped me fall for these guys, particularly Lady Spider. It is these types of songs that NEWS shines at so they really should continue exploring them. They followed up with SUMMER TIME, a sweet and cute summery number with that fun pop atomsphere that is perfect for that time of year. Once again, two B-sides (EASY COME, EASY GO and Liar) hooked me onto the single. Then came Happy Birthday, which was the weakest single from this era but still a nice enjoyable song. GAME of LOVE, which was the second B-side, was very strong and could have been the A-side. Then the album came and that’s why these boys don’t win the title of “Kings of JE.” After the amazing album, pacific, I was hoping that this album would be just as good, if not better. Unfortunately, this album was filled with forgetttable songs that just made me so disappointed. The one amazing new standout number was ケセナイ, sung courtesy of the man to your right, Tegoshi (Ryo and Shige were there too but it was Tegoshi leading). He definitely wins the “Prince of NEWS” title because he’s done everything right this year. He’s brought killer vocals to each song and he has looked since day one of this year until now (and before of course). I absolutely love Tegoshi and he’s one of my favorite members (alongside Massu) so it’s no surprise that he would deliver. Also the boys brought a concert DVD, which was absolutely entrancing. Certain performances such as SHOCK ME vs Devil or Angel. 愛のマタドール and ゴメンネ ジュリエット really made the DVD a perfect watch because the boys really bring the heat (i.e. see Yamapi perform his solo song…it’s…wow). I hope the boys are able to deliver strong material next year but I don’t doubt them. All the singles leading up to the album were fantastic so I’m hoping next time around, they put a little more effort into making the album as varied as the singles. On a related note, Tegoshi and Massu teamed up again as Tegomass and released their third single, 相合傘, which is a beautiful ballad about being unable to tell your feelings to the one you love while sharing an umbrella. It was an adorable single and I’m glad that they did this, which leaves me ready for an album from them next year.

ohnoWell I’m sure people will diasagree with this position but I give Arashi third place for “Kings of JE.” They’ve have been some very busy boys this year, releasing four singles and an album, which makes them the most active releasers of the year in Johnny’s Entertainment. They released Step and Go in February and that was my first taste of these guys and it caught my attention. It’s definitely the type of song that gets stuck in your head. Then they released Dream”A”live, an album packed with enjoyable uptempo numbers to keep the listener moving. It was pretty enjoyable and I would crown it “Johnny’s Entertainment Album Of The Year” (even though that may not be much of a prize seeing as only NEWS, SMAP and KAT-TUN were released an album besides Arashi but they get it nonetheless). But it was One Love, which really made me interested in these guys. This song is absolutely fantastic and is definitely the best song they have released thus far. It’s so pretty that it could even make me cry. Following was truth / 風の向こうへ, which everyone seemed to eat up. Honestly though, I didn’t really see what was so fantastic about it. Luckily Beautiful days was a step up and stood out to me. If you want proof that people love Arashi, just look at the sales. They have absolutely smashed the charts and stomped people out from the top spots. I was really surprised but I congratulate them and hope their success continues. My favorite member is without a doubt Ohno. The first thing I noticed about his him was his face and how it kind of had a sadness to it, at least to me anyway. I think he’s a good leader and look forward to see him grow and sing in the future.

It was a close call for third place but ultimately I gave it to Arashi. So fourth place (but still really close to taking kenthird) is V6. The guys’ first single of the year was 蝶, which immediately caught my eye. Well it wasn’t so much the title track as the second B-side, SHOW ME, that made me fall for these guys. SHOW ME is amazing and fantastic, definitely worth being an A-side. It’s the real reason that I came to follow these guys music. However all the songs on that single were fantastic, including the two other B-sides (Keep a Chance and Twlight emotion). 蝶 was a great title track, taking on Spanish sounds to push the instrumentation over the edge. VIBES, a DVD single, was released soon after and it was kind of like a mini album since there were so many new tracks. VOLTAGE, サンキュー! ミュージック! and DIVE were the three standout songs on this single and definitely kept the group’s momentum of strong songs. Next they released LIGHT IN YOUR HEART / Swing!, which was a very catchy single worth listening to. I didn’t really get to know these guys very well but I’ve chosen my favorite member, who we can take a look at to our right. Let’s take a big thanks to Raid at Raid My Mini Bar for pointing out Ken Miyake to me. There is a picture of him on the website (a random picture in a group appears at the top) and that’s how I got introduced this very hot guy. I tried to find that picture but to no avail. I hope these boys will be putting out an album soon so I can see just how talented these boys are and I hope they continue to deliver hot uptempo tunes.

kokiIt was also hard to choose who would get the 5th spot for “Kings of JE” but I chose to give it to KAT-TUN. With three singles and one album under their belt for the year, KAT-TUN definitely had their share of releases. Let’s be honest, T∀BOO is the reason that these boys got this spot. They’ve released LIPS, DON’T U EVER STOP and White X’mas but none of those songs could hold a candle to that amazingness that is T∀BOO. It’s a sleek and sexy number that is not only one of the best opening tracks of the year but one of the best opening tracks ever. It is addictive and worth the listen if you haven’t heard it. QUEEN OF THE PIRATES was a nice album although a little too focused on rock and not strong enough ballads. Keep the faith was a strong follow up to the introductory track and was another album highlight. Who is my favorite member of KAT-TUN? Tanaka Koki of course. He always stands out to be when I watch their PVs and his voice catches my ear when I hear their songs. Plus he has such a different look from the rest of his bandmates, it’s hard not to see him. Even though the singles could have been a little stronger and a little more aggressive, I would say KAT-TUN did a good job this year with their releases and I’m excited to see what they bring next year. Also their tour DVD comes out next year and I’ll be waiting to see T∀BOO  live.

The rest of the groups I’ll be counting down did not release very much in comparison to their counterparts so I’ll just tackey1review them as one paragraph. 6th place goes to Kinki Kids, who actually only released one single. But what a single it was…Both Secret Code, the title track, and the B-sides made me really fond of these guys. It’s such a shame that they only released one single because I was looking forward to hearing more. While Secret Code takes on the cool jazzy route, strategie uses Spanish influences with Fu Fu Fu and ビターショコラ following the jazz suit. Plus I found out about Domoto Koichi, who is hot beyond belief. Up next is Tackey & Tsubasa, who take 7th place. Much like Kinki Kids, they only released one single but it was pretty good. 恋詩 – コイウタ- was really pretty so it was worth the listen while PROGRESS was a nice uptempo number. The 8th spot goes to SMAP, who released two enjoyable singles: そのまま / White Message and この瞬間, きっと夢じゃない. These guys have some really nice voices so I’m glad I was introduced to them. They also released an album entitled super.modern.artistic.performance, which I haven’t gotten around to listening to but I will soon. Kanjani∞ comes in 9th, mostly for Wahaha. That single was pretty catchy although not the most memorable song I could have hoped for. This group is just okay for me so I hope they release some material to really make me like them because I think that it’s just their style / image that just doesn’t suit me very well. Finally 10th place is TOKIO, who only released one single, 雨傘 / あきれるくらい僕らは願おう. It was nice although it didn’t really catch my attention like the other groups. I hope that these groups (Kinki Kids in particular) will be more active next year so I can really experience what they’re like.

Johnny’s Entertainment certainly has the talent to back up their big name. Many people associate JE with boys who rely on looks rather than talent but that is absolutely not true. Of course these boys have the looks but they have extreme talent to match. Hey! Say! JUMP brought some amazing material this year, winning them title of Kings of Johnny’s Entertainment 2008. NEWS and Arashi also brought some very nice material and had NEWS made a stronger album, they might have taken the crown. Arashi had a very big year as the most releasing group of JE so I wonder what next year will have in store for them, seeing as it is their 10th anniversary. The other groups all had their own special touch even if some weren’t very active. I look forward to seeing what Johnny Kitagawa plans for in 2009…it better be an album from Hey! Say! JUMP at the beginning or I will be pissed.

Kanjani∞ – 無責任ヒーロー [9th Single]

October 31, 2008 at 5:00 pm (Kanjani∞) (, )

Kanjani∞’s 9th single, entitled 無責任ヒーロー, was released on 10.29.08. The title track was used as the theme song for the TV show Egawa x Horio no SUPER Urugusu.

無責任ヒーロー is an upbeat track that serves as the single’s A-side. The chorus has that fun element to it and there’s almost a carnival like atmosphere that comes through the instrumentation to make it enjoyable. The verses are a little more laid back and the interest fades a little. Overall the song is nice but after a while, it gets a little annoying and lacking that fun energy it began with.

The first B-side available on the limited edition A of the single is ケムリ. Opening the song is a dark rock paved instrumental that sounds great from the first moment. Then the first verse comes in and the vocals carry that angst and risk that the music reflects, perfectly capturing the atmosphere of the music. The chorus stands out, particularly when they sing “get me out of here.” As always, the pure instrumental section sounds fantastic and there is an out-of-this-world element that makes it stay on the listener’s mind. This is a great B-side worth listening to.

∞ o clock ’08 is also only present on the limited edition A single. The beeping sound that starts the song off then persists over a very grand dark instrumental but once the chorus comes in, the atmosphere changes gears. There is a more dance feel that the listener can love. The boys sing with a certain rapidity on the verses but it doesn’t come off as slick as hoped. Unfortunately the song is too up and down to really be enjoyed all the way through but it definitely has its really fun moments.

Limited Edition B features fuka-fuka Love the Earth. There isn’t much to say as this track is pretty weak. Although the vocals are nice, the music is very un-engaging and doesn’t give the listener a moment to really fall into the song. It’s a pretty weak song with nothing that makes it stand out.

道標 is the B-side only present on the regular edition of the single. The song begins with a cute and natural midtempo instrumental that really gives off the feeling of a day by day routine. On the first verse, the vocals are smooth, keeping nicely with the cute and enjoyable feeling established by the music. The chorus leaves a little to be desired because there is no real music change and the vocals don’t show any more strength but it’s nothing that’s a turn-off. One thing about the song that might be though is that the song is pretty long, clocking in at around five minutes and it really should have been shortened. Nonetheless, it’s a nice song that the listener can get into while listening to.

In order to promote the single, a PV for 無責任ヒーロー was made. The video features the boys in an office just having fun, to match the fun-ness of the song. It’s not fantastic but it’s nice.

Single Ranking: B

Overall the single isn’t as strong as their previous single, Wahaha but it’s nice. Certain songs, such as the ones on Limited Edition A, are more enjoyable while the others are pretty forgettable.

Kanjani∞- Wahaha [8th Single]

March 10, 2008 at 5:10 am (Kanjani∞) (, )

wahaha2.jpg

Kanjani∞’s eighth single, entitled Wahaha, was released on 03.12.08. In an interesting marketing strategy, only the regular edition of the single contains an extra song as the B-side entitled BJ. Despite a very strange name for the song, the guys of Kanjani8 really brought some strong material on the track.

Wahaha, the title track of the single, captures a very poppy and funny element strongly. The song opens up with a strange laugh that sounds really weird but is a good opening for the light-heartedness and transitions nicely into the instrumentation, heavily driven by guitar. The vocals within the first verse go well with the music and the instrumental remains ever interesting. The chorus features good harminization by the group members and more powerful vocals as well as some more strange laughter. The second verse continues the good vocalizing from the first verse and transitions well into the chorus again. The third verse changes things up slightly for a moment due to a change in arrangement and the vocals show continued strength. The song ends with some laughing and a few notes of guitar. Overall it’s a really great summer tune and despite having its weird moments, is an enjoyable song to listen to while in the mood for a laugh.

The B-side of the single, 誰よりキミが好きだから, is an enjoyable uptempo track. It opens up with a strong instrumentation that creates a summery feel. When the first verse begins, the atmosphere becomes upbeat with a jazzy atmosphere looming. The vocals are well performed and compliment the music well. The chorus features nice harmonization between the members of the group and stands out the most for its catchiness and strong vocals. The instrumental section is nice and it ends with a great ending just like it began.

BJ, a B-side only available on the regular edition, also is guitar driven to create a midtempo track. The first verse features some vocals primarily within a lower register to go perfectly with the music and goes great into the hook, which features a slightly different instrumentation that is memorable. The chorus is very nice and while it doesn’t seperate itself from the chorus too much, it’s a nice continuation of the song that catches attention. The third verse is a great addition to the song containing a slightly different arrangement and following is a very sweet and “twinkling” instrumental section that goes along with the music. The song ends with a summery atmospheric instrumentation. Overall the song is a nice addition to the single and placing it on the regular edition alone was a smart marketing strategy.

The accompanying PV for Wahaha is definitely as strange as the song itself. While it does capture the atmosphere and spirit, the video seems somewhat childish and just crosses the point where it’s still really enjoyable while listening to the song. It features various funny facial expressions as well laughing and just playing around. It fits with the song but maybe they could have toned it down…just a little.

Single Ranking: B +

Kanjani∞’s eighth single, Wahaha, features three different feelings in different songs. The title track is fun and enjoyable, always ready for a hearty laugh. 誰よりキミが好きだから is an uptempo jazzy number that is very creative and original. BJ is a sweet midtempo track. It’s a quality release that makes me look forward to new releases.
