[ALBUM] mihimaru GT – mihimarise (Review + Download + Lyrics)

mihimarise is mihimaru GT’s 4th Album. It released on 28th May, it contains songs from their last 4 singles, Gazen Yeah!」, I SHOULD BE SO LUCKY, diverge andGiri Giri HERO. It peaked on no.1 on Oricon Chart. Well my thought, it’s the second best album in 2008 after BoA’s THE FACE (After I counted it, the difference is just around 0.02)!. The album’s tracklist arranged neatly. HUGELY RECOMMENDED!!! for the person that has never listened to mihimaru GT before.

REVIEW

01. theme of mihimaLIVE2
A good opening for this album, it’s taken from their live concert, mihimaLIVE 2. Well the orchestra is so great here! Their put some good raps as well! It brings up the atmosphere as a beginning of this album. Afterall theme of mihimaLIVE 2 did it’s duty well as an introduction of the album.

02. Giri Giri HERO
A great song from their last single. The song is catchy and many people liked this song. The verses are filled, so none of the part in this song is boring. And I loved miyake’s rap here, and hiroko’s voice is cute as usual. This track just brings a sprite and makes us want to get awake or something, well I’m not good at describing my feeling. I also love the acoustic guitar, it sounds so nice in my ear.

03. I SHOULD BE SO LUCKY
This song is the least good from their previous 4 singles. The Instrumental is groovy as usual. The only thing I don’t really like is Miyake’s rap, yeah I love his rap but in this song he raps a bit boring and yeah not sound sprited. Afterall this song is catchy.

04. Bon Voyage
Begins with women’s “oo oo” part that will appears in the whole song. Well, it sounds fresh and great!, they put mihimaru GTish instrumental in it, so Turntable-ish. Well and they do a good combination in the rap part which I love so much! One of the best track from this album. The lyrics is fun and I love every verses, well I got to say that there’s only a few mihimaru GT’s song that have boring verses. This song is sounds so colorful and fresh!

05. Tokyo~tokyo~ feat. Kusuo
My current favorite song. Hiroko has done collaboration with Kusuo before titled “Tegami” (Letter) and I loved it. After 4 groovy songs Tokyo relaxes our ear down. The verses and chorus both is perfect. The Lyrics is telling about life in Tokyo, you can hear city’s sound behind this song. The chorus sounds pretty ballad-ish with a bit reggae instrumental. It’s a perfect song.

06. Love Sick
I think it’s the first time mihimaru GT sings this kind of song, backed with soft piano and drum. They put a robot effect on some of hiroko’s voice. It sounds a bit westernized. And simple verses color this song up. Some percussion after the bridge also sounds good. Yeah, it’s simple but not boring.
()
07. BLUE TAGGING
Just an intro~ it contains people’s crowd and some of their raps. A good intro before the next song.
08. Ai Kotoba (Word ‘Love’)
A down tempo song. I don’t really feel this song personally except the chorus, I love the chorus so much. This song itself has a similar piano with BoA’s Kissing you, old but good. Taratatata part is also catchy.

09. eegana
This song has reggae instrumental and some drums, The verses is weirdly cute. The chorus is super cooland sounds adventurous! Love this song so much. They put some funny weird talking in this song, which I love so much Hahaha. But I hoped miyake to join hiroko to sing the chorus part.
()
10. Gazen Yeah!
The best song from their previous singles, it’s cute backed with some soft electric and acoustic guitar.Once again they put a good combination within Miyake’s and Hiroko’s voice in every single part in this song. The chorus is extremely catchy! Well another perfect song.

11. Birthday Song feat. Tokita Shintarou from Sukima Switch
Begins with synths that I found similar with Yuna Ito’s mahaloha. It’s the second birthday song this year that I’ve listened after BoA’s Happy Birthday. The Instrumental is super great, they mixed guitar, piano and drum very well. But it filled with more fresh-sounded piano. The Chorus is good, but I loved BoA’s Happy Birthday more.

12. diverge
The only soft ballads in this album, Well it’s not that soft anyways. I love the Instrumental so much. It’s an autumn ballad but they released in during this year’s winter. The first time I hear to this song I didn’t really lke it, the thing makes me turn to it is the instrumental. So the Instrumental that glittered by Orchestra, piano and electric guitar support this song much. And after realizing it THIS SONG IS HOT! I still love it until now.

13. ALIVE
The last but not the least. It’s a right song they picked to end this album. The simple hand clapping and finger clicking combined well wit the acoustic guitar here. The chorus is basically catchy, but they left the verses a bit blank with just miyake’s rap. Well It just to long for him to do rapping by himself. The bridge is way boring, but the last chorus is just so good! Reminds me to TRF’s music so much with many people singing behind the lead vocalist.

14. mihimaru GT Kessaku Talk Show with Kosaka Daimaou
It’s a radio show featuring Kosaka Daimaou, well I don’t understand Japanese but it seems funny, I love Hiroko’s expression in this song. Miyake doesn’t talk so much here ( I think). Well it makes me smile so much at least

AFTERALL
I’ve go to say I’m amazed to this album! Every single new song is well filled. As I said HUGELY RECOMMENDED ()
