  1. irony
    It’s uhh…pretty generic pop to be honest. There’s really nothing that stands out to me in this song. It’s the type of anime song you can slap onto any lighthearted comedy show and it’d fit just as well as the original opening. The melody is nothing special and there aren’t really any shifts in tempo or tone or anything, it’s just pretty static throughout. It’s decent enough to listen to, but nothing stands out.
  2. Kokoro no Inyroku
    I think this single would benefit from mashing up together this song and the first song, because the tempo, melody, and style are similar enough to be called the same song. By mashing up this song and the last, we’d get a more decent song that isn’t the same static melody for 4 minutes. Instead we get two generic static pop songs.
  3. Neo Moon
    At least this song doesn’t sound like the previous two tracks. It’s certainly a step in the right direction, as the melody isn’t the same few notes being hit over and over again, although that’s not really saying much since the melody for this song still hits the same few notes, albeit with more range and longer note holds. I would like to say that the tone is a bit darker than the previous songs, but it’s still gives off some of that generic poppish feel.
  4. irony -TV Mix-
    How much do you like shorter versions of the same song without the pretty colors that’s supposed to go along with it?

Rating: 2/5 (It’s an okay album overall, but it’s genericness really drags is down by a lot.)
