First thoughts on the new songs from the album (iTunes released)

-Isogaba Maware - definitely gives me "Smells Like Teen Spirit" vibes from the intro, but beyond that it's a pretty good song, but I'm not sure if I would've placed right as the first song.

-Mijiku Hanjuku Torotoro - Dunno about this one, I mean it comes off as a bit too happy for the group? Like a forgotten S/mileage or Buono! song maybe? Maybe it'll grow on me, but I really wasn't into this one...

-Kenmei Blues - Damn, I reaaaaally like this song...it's just edgy and gives me this cowboy western vibe and that's something you don't get so often with H!P so I commend this!

-Zanshin - Oh yay harmonica~ I'm not fond of slow songs, but this (and Kobushi no Hana) really sent the group to a new side and I want to see this side of them used more than the growling kind we've been getting. It just has a lot of soul in it and it's one of the better songs!

-TEKI - Too short...but energetic I'll give it that

-GO TO THE TOP!! - Maybe it's just me, but this one fell to the background for me...sounds a little like Bacchikoi Seishun! I would say it's ok, but that's only since it's suitable to their style of music.

-Kobushi no Hana - Ballad song, great vocals, just a powerful song to finish things up...

I at first though that Kenmei Blues was a cover of "Oh Well".

Kenmei Blues-
what are they saying right before the chorus??? like the responsive lyrics-
are they going like "T F oos"?!? also during the chorus
-edit- nevermind found it, it's "teenage blues" apparently O.O

Still a very decent run for an album, I remember BK albums that were down to #39 or lower by now. It could get decent sales if there's no hidden catch. It all depends on how the overall sales for the top 10 are, if they are low it can still turn out below the expectations.

Kenmei Blues and Kobushi no Hana are really good songs. Zanshin is pretty neat too. Don't really care about the others. Not a bad sound for the group, though. Pretty un-H!P so that's probably why I'm not terribly fussed about most of it, but oh well. It happens. I'm just glad we're getting albums again, really.

The covers are pretty bad as I expected, but I tend to hate H!P groups covering other H!P songs :fear: (Halation Summer being one of the very few exceptions). Kawaii Kare is probably the least terrible, but it's still not good.

Also Berryz songs just don't sound the same without Berryz, lol. Especially not the older ones. Part of the charm of early Berryz songs is how bad the vocals were, dammit! :lol:

I hope they'll slowly have performances of all the original album songs on "Station". I think Juice eventually had all of theirs featured, and it's been a nice way to officially listen to them when you aren't able to purchase the original.
