New CD Singles Release – Kalafina’s Progressive and UVERworld’s Kanashimi wa Kitto


Music Post! featuring releases from Kalafina and UVERworld

Kalafina‘s 6th Single release titled ‘Progressive‘.
SECL-816

CD Title: Progressive
Artist: Kalafina
Release Date: 28-Oct-2009

Ha! Kajiura Yuki‘s unmistakable sound is imbued throughout Kalafina’s latest single. You can’t get away from it no matter how hard you try. Anyway, ‘Progressive‘ is a fast-paced new-age pop song with electro-drum beats, choral voices, solo violin and guitar that’s very typical of Kajiura’s arrangement. The song’s intro sounds like one the tracks from the recent Pandora Hearts OST…which is also composed by Kajiura. Still, it’s quite a decent song. My favourite though is the filler track called ‘Utsukushisa‘, an eerie and airy sounding song. The melody has an ethereal vibe that’s further enhanced by the piano and cello in the arrangement. The wailing guitars add to the intensity of the song. It’s really a beautiful song and something I would listen to over and over again on my playlist. Definitely a recommended listen!

14th Single release for UVERworld titled ‘Kanashimi wa Kitto
SRCL-7142

CD Title: Kanashimi wa Kitto (哀しみはきっと )
Artist: UVERworld
Release Date: 28-Oct-2009

The titular track of Uverworld‘s 14th single ‘Kanashimi wa Kitto‘ is used as the theme tune for TBS drama “A Little Princess”. The other two b-side songs featured on their latest cd are track 2 ‘Gekiha‘ and track 3, ‘Mikageishi‘. The band has gone for a much mellower sound for the songs on this single. Track 1 and 3 are mid-tempo pop-rock type ballads. Track 2 ‘Gekiha’ started out slow but breaks out into uptempo rock number. I like the chorus bits which reminds me a little of ABS ‘Jap’. It’s a fair release from them. If you’re fan of the band’s music, you’ll probably end up lapping this up as well. ( ^^)
