4 Akogare My Star Review


4 Akogare My Star – Cute’s 4th Album

01. Akogare My Star

Rating – 9/10

This song is pretty good. It’s catchy and some of the girls’ vocals have really impressed me here. However, I can sense that this is one of those songs that you can begin to hate after listening to it too much. So it’s a good listen, but it’s not a song that should overstay it’s welcome.

02. One’s Life – Umeda Erika, Okai Chisto and Hagiwara Mai

Rating – 9.5/10

The rapping parts are awesome lol. This song is really flowy and calmish, I like it. It needs less Mai though. Way, way less Mai. Her voice just doesn’t fit the song and almost ruined it for me. Despite that, defiantly my favorite new song on the album.

03. Yes! All My Family – Suzuki Airi

Rating – 8/10

The song is no Tsuugaku Vector, but it’s pretty good. Airi’s vocals sound a bit strange here though, I don’t know how to explain it well, but she just sounds like she is singing while she has something stuck in her throat. It doesn’t sound like her. Oh well, it doesn’t really subtract from the quality that much. The way she says the title is really cute by the way~

04. Naimda no Iro

Rating – 9.5/10

05. Aishiteru Aishiteru – Nakajima Saki and Arihara Kanna

Rating – 7/10

The song isn’t horrible, but defiantly not anything special. It’s a bit on the boring side and their vocals don’t really help them out that much. It’s just not a good song for either of them. I think this song would have fit Airi or Chisato better.

06. Seishun Song – Yajima Maimi

Rating – 8/10

This song has it’s catchy parts, but it also has you waiting for “When will something interesting happen?” The chorus is really good and it’s already stuck in my head, but I think I’ll need a few more listens for this one to like the song completely.

07. Big Dreams

Rating – 7/10

Cute, but nothing special. There isn’t really much to say about it, it’s just not my type of song I guess. Airi’s solo in the middle of the song was nice though.

08. Shines

Rating – 3/10

I kept asking myself, “When is this song over?” The “WOWWWWWWWWW WOWOWWWWWWW WOWOWWWWWW” they sing like every 5 seconds is REALLY annoying. T_T

09. Yakusoku wa Toku ni Shinai wa

Rating – 9/10

Why did they put all the group songs at the end? I had a feeling this song would be a ballad. It’s really nice sounding, kinda like a better version of Aishiteru Aishiteru. I seriously couldn’t reconize some of the voices here, they sound really different but they pull it off really well. Finally they pull out a good ballad.

10. Forever Love

Rating – 9/10

11. Edo no Temari Uta II

Rating – 10/10

Overall Rating – 8/10

Better than their last album, but still a bit lackluster. If only they could come out with an album that was good as their 2nd. Oh well, this wasn’t horrible, really, but I was a bit dissapointed. I guess we can wait until their 5th album?
