Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood OP2 Single – Hologram

Music Post!

Brand new single from NICO Touches the Walls featuring ‘HOLOGRAM‘, the 2nd intro theme to TV anime ‘Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood.’


CD Title: Hologram
Artist: NICO Touches the Walls
Date Released: 12-Aug-2009

Hologram is NICO’s 6th single to date. If I’m not mistaken, this is the second time they contributed a song to an anime series, their first being Naruto Shippuden’s 6th ending theme titled ‘Broken Youth‘. I’m a fan of their music as I think they’ve written some excellent tracks. Their first major album ‘Who are you?‘ is a huge favourite of mine, one that I’ve been playing on my MP3 playlist frequently.

Hologram came just after NICO’s most recent single i.e. ‘Big Foot‘ which was released in May of this year. Big Foot wasn’t a hit with me but their latest single is definitely a winner. In fact, I deemed Hologram to be much better than Yui‘s OP song ‘Again‘ that was featured as FMA: Brotherhood’s first intro theme. It has a fab punchy melody and is instantly catchy with Mitsumura Tatsuya’s enthusiastic vocals making the song sound so lively. The second track ‘Fuujin‘ is just as good but more foot stomping rocky. I love the guitar interlude…very fifties retro-rock vibe. Again, I dig Tatsuya’s singing on this track. Another fast growing favourite with me is the third song on the single titled ‘Aitai Kimochi‘, a lovely mid-tempo ballad type rock number that has got a memorable melody and jangly folk-rock arrangement. It made me wanna break out the acoustic guitar and strum this tune…lol.  It’s such a hummable song, you know.

Overall, I rate this single is  a very worthy listen and recommended it for your music collection…well, ok….maybe just mine and not yours…haha, I kid.
