CD Title: Macross Frontier The 1st Movie ‘The False Songstress’ Insert Song – ‘Pink Monsoon’ (マクロスF 虚空歌姫 – イツワリノウタヒメ – 挿入歌 : Pink Monsoon)
Artist: Sheryl Nome (シェリル・ノーム) starring May’n
Release Date: 21-Oct-2009
Alright then. Let’s begin. Pink Monsoon is the insert song single for the upcoming Macross Frontier Movie: Itsuwari no Utahime.
I gave the two new songs on the single a proper listen for quite a few times already before making this post. Ha, let me tell you that the full track of the titular song sounds nothing like the impression I got from the snippets we’ve been getting here and there and from the movie clips. The actual song turns out a whole lot better than I thought it would be. Pink Monsoon is a Sheryl Nome song through and through and there’s no getting away from that fact. The catchy beat and melody is a mixture of RnB and electro-pop. The digitized vocals actually sounded good instead of off-putting and I put this down to the music arrangement which suited Mayn’s vocals. She really projected Sheryl’s character and image with her sexy vocal styling.
Track 2 ‘天使になっちゃった‘ (Tenshi ni Nachatta) is quite similar in feel to Yousei (妖精, Fairy), the other Sheryl song which can be found on Macross Frontier O.S.T.2 Nyan TRA. It’s more of a ballad with a softer melody. Again, it’s totally a Sheryl number. I like Yousei more though but ya, it’s still a listenable song. May’n certainly portrays Sheryl’s singing vocals to the hilt, matching the nuances of her character. Overall, a pretty good single from the *pink* one. The movie is about her after all…everyone else are just supporting casts…ya Alto and Ranka included. 😛
