Here’s another new single release and it’s from J-Min. The double A-side CD features the intro and outro themes to TV anime “Hanasakeru Seishounen” (花咲ける青少年).
Of the OP and ED songs, I prefer “Change“, the OP track. The full length version is a rather catchy and snappy tune. I like the rhythmic acoustic guitar arrangement. Makes the song sounds raw and fresh. “One” on the other hand is a slow ballad. Didn’t like the arrangement for the song. I guess it just sounds a tad dated to my ears. The spoiler filled lyrics though are meaningful. The bonus song included in this release is a vocal rendition of Li Ren’s theme entitled “The Truth“, a bgm score that’s featured on the series and is available on the OST album. I thought it’s a cool version which is worth a listen. Anyway, it was the one song that I was eager to listen to when I saw the tracklist. Aside from that, J-Min is a pretty good vocalist too. I like her singing. Overall, a good release from her. Scroll down to the track list for a preview of selected tracks and info of the CD, of course.
