01. Moon Crying
I love the beginning of this song, the piano is WHOAH! Blow me away. The verses are well-filled. The chorus sounds so tragic and touching. The instrumental also did a good job on building a strong chorus up. But except the piano, the rest of the instrumentals leave the verses alone though it’s so good when it reaches the chorus part, but I think they should put more orchestra in it’s verses. They put so much glittery voice in it. Although I’ve never really loved Koda Kumi’s voice, some of this song’s part touches me.

02. That Ain’t Cool feat. FERGIE
Well, I think this song is my favorite song from the whole single. It’s sexy! And I love FERGIE’s sexy voice in every part, in the chorus ultimately! The problem is Koda Kumi who tried to sounds sexy with her English. Well it’s not bad, but I think It would be better if she do rap in Japanese! That Ain’t Cool! LOL I loved her previous Japanese rap. About the Instrumental, well this hot and sexy song filled with very very cool synthetics. I found a miss-placed glittery chime. Well it’s not annoying at all. I love the lyrics and this song also ends with sexy eastern music style! LOVE IT!
03. Once Again
The least best song in this single. It’s a reggae song. But I think her voice just won’t calm us down just like the other reggae songs do. Some pressure she did on her voice is annoying. My favorite part from this song is when she sings “Once again, once again” part. She did a good vibrating there. And I love the popish reggae combination in the bridge part! It’s a good but not a great song.

04. Lady Go!
I love songs that begin with catchy chorus! Lady Go! Has that element in it. She sings a cute verses, it’s not boring at all and it also leads the song into a good chorus! It’s like the 2nd version of BoA’s Sparkling, though BoA’s is better LOL. The Instrumental is damn cool! I love every single of them! Drums and some soft pianos, the synths are also sounds super! But when I try to listen it over and over it sounds quite boring but still enjoy it.
