Fullmetal Alchemist’s 3rd OP: Golden Time Lover by Sukima Switch

Music Post!

It’s been ages since I last make a music post. So here I am with a preview of Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood‘s 3rd Intro theme which is called ‘Golden Time Lover‘ (ゴールデンタイムラバー ) and it’s performed by Sukima Switch.

CD Title: Golden Time Lover [ゴールデンタイムラバー]
Artist: Sukima Switch [スキマスイッチ]
Release Date: 14-Oct-2009

Sukima Switch’s 12th single ‘Golden Time Lover‘ is instantly catchy and addictive to listen to. I particularly like how the cool intro leads into the song proper. The melody is a fusion of funky jazz-pop which is the kind of stuff I’ve been listening to quite a lot in recent times. As for how well it fits as FMA’s new intro theme, I can’t comment much because it has yet to premiere in the anime. The new OP will probably be featured in the coming episode (Ep.27) or the one after next (Ep.28). But based on the feel of the track, I am definitely looking forward to see the new intro sequence.

Right then, the single also features two other new songs from Sukima Switch i.e. track 2 ‘Tameiki‘ and track 3 ‘B Angle‘. Tameiki is a mid tempo jazz-tinged track whereas B Angle is a slow pop-ballad that’s quite lovely to listen to.

A recommended listen if you like Sukima Switch style of music. The CD single is due for wide release on 14-Oct-09.
