Shibata Jun – 愛をする人 [17th Single]

Shibata Jun’s 17th single, entitled 愛をする人, was released 09.17.08. The title track was used as the theme song for the movie Orochi.

愛をする人 is an emotional ballad. The song starts off with the first verse and the first note sounds really strange because it’s so deep in contrast with the prettiness of the music. Soon her voice sounds more controlled and prettier, capturing the emotions of the song very well. One problem about the song is that it is hard to tell where the chorus is and thus as the listener follows, it is hard to find that one spot that they can always return to. Her voice is so pretty and the instrumentation is nice but the combination of the two doesn’t create that magical spark.

In order to promote the single, a PV for 愛をする人 was made. The video takes influence from the covers to make a pretty uninteresting video.

Single Ranking: B –

愛をする人 is definitely not a bad song but it doesn’t connect with the listener as strongly as hoped. Her voice is great and the music is nice as well but there is a gap blocking the two from coming together to make a really strong song.
