Biased review of Beautiful World  
Hmm.. I just feel like an obligation to review their new album..
oh yess... our lovely New album from arashi! "Beautiful World"
It's indeed beautiful!
Here is my biased review haha XD

First of all
Rank of Solo
1. Nino - どこにでもある唄 : I like so much! I mean really MUCH! The best solo he ever made (in my opinion). But I'm wondering why he used kanji 唄 for uta (song) and not using kanji 歌. Anyone can explain it to me? What's the different of this two kanjis?
2. Oh-chan - Hung up on : Hmm... I like it, and there is Sho's voices too!! XD
3. Jun - Shake it! : Okay, this is unexpected since I never like his solo. Mostly because of his voice of course.. But this time I try to ignore his voice. Well, I like it.. Such a catchy song!! XD
4. Sho - このままもっと : Most of my fellow fangirls really LOVE this song. Maybe because of the lyrics. But I'm soooo audio person and for me his solo is just so-so. I love him singing T.A.B.O.O or hip hop boogie type of songs.. (Well, this is my preferences)
5. Aiba - 「じゃなくて」 : Hmm.. the music is pretty fun.. But I don't know I never like his solo too. Just like Jun's. 

The last album when I just listened to the album, my solo rank is 1. Ohno, 2. Sho 3. Nino and I didn't want to put Jun and Aiba's songs to my playlist. But after watching concert, it changed to 1. Ohno, Nino 2. Sho 3. Aiba 4. Jun.
Haha. So most probably solo rank for BW album will change too after concert. LOL

Rank of New Songs

1. まだ見ぬ世界へ : I hate this song at first! Seriously. But after a week listening to it. Suddenly it won't get out from my head. Now I really like it. (Lesson learned : Don't hate something or you'll be madly in love with it) Plus it has PV! <3 And I love the PV too! Madaminu becomes their PV that I watch more than 50 times after Lutas. LOL
2. 虹のカケラ ~no rain, no rainbow~ : The music is very very very rich with so many different kind of instruments! there are fiddle and tin whistle (sound like the corrs songs haha), koto and wind chimes too!! I miss wind chimes.. I often played it when I was still in marching band.
3. Negai : I love the string and the part "夜空を見上げてる、君も僕も。。" Love it, love it!
4. Joy : I've already love this song when I watched gashuku. No words for this.. <3
5. Morning light : I like this kind of music a lot.. and I love ohno's "Wowow oh wow........" hahaha XD That is one reason why I keep listen to morning light LOL
6. 遠くまで : This song also stuck on my head I dunno why. Such a nice song.. :3
7. Rock this : What a tricky opening right? LOL Not really like this song, but I like arashi rap part!!
8. Always : Actually it has a nice chorus, but again because Jun opens this song, hmm... I can't say anything..

Yeah that's it. Again, this is biased review, and Jun ichibanners don't hate me, cause I rank "always" in last place just because his voice is the opening..
I love BW and I still love BNMF too!!
So, how is your rank?


Current Mood: hungry

(=3=*) << an expression from Jun ichibanners LOL. I don't really like his voice too, but somehow, if there anybody talked bad about him, I get kinda irritated LOL
and I think, Jun's voice getting SO MUCH better these days~ (a defense from an ichibanner? XP)

and I agree with you about nino's solo. I think this is the best solo he ever made!! @(>x<)@
even when I haven't understand the meaning of that song, I already could feel the richness of those song >x< (well, that's how I describe nino's newest solo, 'rich')

well, I have no special comment about each song like you do, because I just simply love this album :p
[identity profile] kazukazu89.livejournal.com on July 8th, 2011 12:23 pm (UTC)
hahaha... I'm sorry for making you feel irritated.. ^^;;

yeah, I agree his voice is much better now. Dome dvd is one of the proof.

Nino's solo is rich instrumentally and lyricly.. LOL I don't make sense at all!
[identity profile] showjuro.livejournal.com on July 7th, 2011 10:07 am (UTC)
I love Jun's solo the most followed by Sho, Nino, Ohno and Aiba. I love all of the solos, so it's really hard to rank XDDD But I feel that Jun's cute and out-of-pitch voice suits his cute solo XD

My fave songs will be Niji no Kakera (You know this already XD) and morning Light! <33 I like the rest too, but I love these two songs the most!
[identity profile] kazukazu89.livejournal.com on July 8th, 2011 12:25 pm (UTC)
yes, yes.. we're always love our bias the most, right? XD
I like jun's too!! makes me want to shake my body.. haha

Of course I know!! cause you tweet it all the time!
[identity profile] showjuro.livejournal.com on July 8th, 2011 01:13 pm (UTC)
We're always so biased <33
Let's shake our bodies~ *sings Shake It* LOL, Shake it was playing in my head during class today :P

Not only tweet, tweet-sing with Tyta XD
[identity profile] miha-bara.livejournal.com on July 8th, 2011 01:59 pm (UTC)
Niji no kakera. and morning light!! same ranking. hehe. XDD
[identity profile] showjuro.livejournal.com on July 8th, 2011 11:55 pm (UTC)
And add Shake It to the list!
[identity profile] miha-bara.livejournal.com on July 9th, 2011 01:03 am (UTC)
Usually i don't add solos to my list. XDD i don't know myself why. kidding
[identity profile] showjuro.livejournal.com on July 9th, 2011 01:11 am (UTC)
I usually skip solos too, but this time I got so addicted to Jun's solo <3
[identity profile] miha-bara.livejournal.com on July 9th, 2011 01:13 am (UTC)
[identity profile] showjuro.livejournal.com on July 9th, 2011 01:22 am (UTC)
Maaa... maybe bias? But I really love how catchy the song is.
[identity profile] miha-bara.livejournal.com on July 9th, 2011 01:26 am (UTC)
HAHA...maybe. but truthfully, the word 'shake it shake it' and 'dance dance dance' keep playing in my mind. XDD
[identity profile] showjuro.livejournal.com on July 9th, 2011 01:27 am (UTC)
This is the first time Jun's solo in an album is stuck in my head ^^
[identity profile] whie-khant.livejournal.com on July 7th, 2011 11:20 am (UTC)
Totally agree on Nino's solo! (yea I'm completely biased LOL)
I really love the lyrics. HE'S SUCH A GENIUS!! (≧▽≦) (≧▽≦)

About the other solos, well, I haven't even listened to Janakute and Shake It yet, so- I can't give any comment about it XDD
But I love Kono Mama Motto tho- such a cute song :3
[identity profile] kazukazu89.livejournal.com on July 8th, 2011 12:27 pm (UTC)
It's okay to be biased cause his solo is really a good song!

You should listen to shake it! it's a good song! XD
[identity profile] lipskazye.livejournal.com on July 7th, 2011 03:06 pm (UTC)
Hahah, I actually like Sho's solo best. Not really because of the lyrics, but I like the melody of the song and stuff. It's so sweet and I'll always go aww~ whenever I hear the song. Next is followed by Neen's solo! I love this song, esp the lyrics. I think he's such an awesome lyricist! But, as compared to 1992*4##111, I like 1992*4##111 better. I like the music and the concept of the lyrics for it better :D Then it'd be followed by Ohno's, Aiba's then Jun's. I don't know why, but I always don't really like Jun's solo D: And omg, yama pair collab in Ohno's solo <3333 I FEEL THE MEMBER AI~ HAHAHA

And well, my fave songs in this new album is only Joy, Negai, Tooku made and Morning light. I really love these 4 songs esp Negai and Tooku made <3 Same as you, I don't really like Always too D: Not because of Jun, but... it just doesn't grow on me. HAHAHA
[identity profile] kazukazu89.livejournal.com on July 8th, 2011 12:31 pm (UTC)
I surprised!! Nino lost to Sho!
We really have a different taste of music then when it comes to nino and sho's solo..

But I like Joy gashuku version better. :D
[identity profile] kimi-no-tsuki.livejournal.com on July 7th, 2011 04:04 pm (UTC)
It might just be my personal thought, but I think Nino used the kanji 唄 instead of 歌 because he always seems to have some kind of humble aspect in his lyrics. The title itself is very humble, meaning that the song is "nothing special", it's just something you could "find anywhere". The kanji 唄 to me seems like more of just a little song that you sing, like a lullaby or traditional song, whereas 歌 can be more of a big production, so 唄 seems more humble and simple to me. Even though the song has a big, grand feel to it, he's saying that it's really just a simple song that he wrote, but since it's about life which can be both very grand and very simple at the same time, I think he is contrasting the music with the title using the kanji 唄... that's my theory, haha ;^^ Maybe I think too much into Nino's songs, but they are always so deep in various ways~

... and for solos my list is...
1. Nino~!!!!!!!
2. Aiba
3. Leader
4. MatsuJun
5. Sho-chan

Of course Nino's is the best, lol (biased much?), then I LOVE Aiba's solo, it's so cute! I love the jazzy music and the lyrics are adorable. It just exudes Aiba all over the place too, lol ;^^
Oh-chan's solo I like because I want to see him dance it! His past few dances have been very calm (although also very sexy~!) so I want to see his 激しい dancing XD
Then I like MatsuJun's 'cause it's super catchy :D And Sho-chan... nnnn.... Sho-chan~~~!!! The title had me expecting another "sexy" song, so when it turned out to be a cheesy pop-y song it kind of threw me off... and then... he doesn't sing it very well... though I still think it's cute... I can't say that I actually like it yet. It's starting to grow on me though, so I think I just have to listen to it more.

And now my comment is way too long, so I will stop talking ;^^
[identity profile] kazukazu89.livejournal.com on July 8th, 2011 12:39 pm (UTC)
wow.. thanks for the explanation.. yay! I learn a lot!
well, we know nino is a deep person, so I think it's okay to think it deeply too.. XD

AH!! maybe that's why I don't really like sho's solo!
Just like you said! I was expecting too much of sho's and when I finally heard it... hmmm... yes too cheesy for me.
Not that I hate it though.
Haha ^^

[identity profile] kimi-no-tsuki.livejournal.com on July 9th, 2011 09:05 am (UTC)
Yeah, his lyrics are always so deep, and you get to see a bit about how he thinks. He actually said that he wrote this song thinking about the victims of the earthquake... I almost cried reading that (it was in a magazine).

Yeah, the first time I heard Sho's song I was like "Ack! Soooo cheesy", but now it's growing on me, hehe. I kinda like it... but I also can't seem to get over that he doesn't sing it too well. He also mentioned that it was out of his usual range, and that's one reason he chose it 'cause he wanted to try... but... I don't think he succeeded... it's not that bad, but every now and then in the song it bugs me ;^^

My rank:
1. 虹のカケラ ~no rain, no rainbow~. perfect.i like the lyric.the rhythm. the harmony sound.
2. morning light. such catchy song. the intro. i'm getting addicted to it. <3
3. negai. i just...love it

i like mada minu sekai, but since it leaked few weeks before this album, i didn't consider it new aong. and thus, not making into the list. but maybe between morning light and negai. XDD
oh, and i don't like Always. *delete it from my winamp list already* ^_^;;

i don't really like this album solo. BnMF is better.also, i'm not really into Jun's solo in any album. *bricked* just like in BnMF, i like Sho-kun's TABOO better than Come back to me. haha. i'm not bias when it comes to liking a song. i know what you mean when you say you didn't like it when Jun sang the opening. i kinda understand it bcos i didn't really like We can make it.

Hime, sorry to say that i can't make it to Jakarta on 19th. m(_ _)m
i just came back from Vietnam on 19th, and take the 4pm flight from there. my flight to Jakarta is at 1.30pm. ><" maybe we can meet later when i book another flight next time. airasia always offer promotion, no fret. but i burned my money on the flight ticket. such a waste. TT____TT

haha...my comment is such a mess. everything becomes italic, it supposed only the comment part of the song ranking. XDDD
[identity profile] kazukazu89.livejournal.com on July 8th, 2011 02:00 pm (UTC)
oooh... zannen deshou ne..
well.. there is nothing we could do about it.. hope we can meet the other day!! hehehe..

ah!! yess..I don't like we can make it too!! :p
Glad you're not biased when it comes to song.. haha
[identity profile] miha-bara.livejournal.com on July 8th, 2011 03:53 pm (UTC)
Huhuuu...just now my friend also said that she can't go to Jakarta too (we're supposed to go together) so i don't need to feel guilty for cancelling the plan. ^_^;;

LOL. keep this between us, or else Jun's ichibaner will chase me with baseball bat. XDD
Yes, i'm not bias. maybe sometimes yes. but that explain why i can liasten to many kind of songs, it doesn't have to be the singer that i like only. :)

nino!twin! I'm finally slowly coming out of my hiatus (and still editing SCP for AnM *fail*)
How are you?
I downloaded the album and finally listened to it last thursday. I like this album more than the scene album, maybe because for some reason, it's a little more put together or cohesive? hahaha.
I really liked Joy, Negai, 虹のカケラ ~no rain, no rainbow~, morning light, (what's the name of the song that goes ready steady go...? I like that song, too. Oh, and of course the new single.
In terms of solos, I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Nino's Solo. After that is Sho's, because it was pretty unexpected. Aiba's is next, then Ohno's and Jun's. I prefer Shake it compared to Come back to me, but come back to me gets stuck in your head more. Ohno's...I can't wait to see it live (SINCE THIS HAS A LOT OF DANCING :D), but I'm not overly fond of it, although I'm glad he tried something different this time. :D
[identity profile] kazukazu89.livejournal.com on July 14th, 2011 05:16 am (UTC)
Katie!!!! nino!twin! *huggles* I miss you!! you rarely online in twitter..
I was having a bad RL too.. my plans were ruined! I couldn't even finish Nino's bday project T_T I feel so bad for this..
But now I have time to arrange my RL again. Hope I can finish it soon XD

and it's quite unexpected too for me. With all rumour about erotic night floating around.. haha..

Oooh you managed to rank your songs! For some reason ranking them doesn't really sit well with me because I tend to be fickle about things like that. They always change depending on my mood. XD

You should listen to Sho's 夢でいいから (Yume De Ii Kara) from their One album. It has the right mix of singing and rapping. It's a sweet song but not overly sweet like このままもっと. One reason why I can't get myself to like このままもっと is because I always compare it to 夢でいいから (Yume De Ii Kara) and Can't Let You Go. It just falls short for me. (And I'm doubly disappointed because Sho's my ichiban and I try to love all of his solos but this one's just not doing it for me.)
[identity profile] kazukazu89.livejournal.com on July 15th, 2011 01:55 am (UTC)
ahaha.. actually me too, it will change depending my mood or after I watched their live. LOL

I've listened to both 夢でいいから and can't let you go, And I like both of it!
I don't know why I can't like this one, maybe because I was expecting too high before the album is out and after I listened to it. Hmmm... I can't put it with words.. haha
