At the beginning of Sora Uta there’s uplifting beats that’s had never been used in Alan’s past releases. The reason for this? It’s the change in Alan’s style! This appears to be the only song that’s not a ballad! Overall, I thought that Sora Uta was totally a great new change of style and she executed the mood flawlessly. I think she did a great job with the change.

My Stage was also another upbeat song that’s not a ballad. I understand that she was approaching to something new but I thought that this song was not as good as the A-side. At first, I thought the song was a little bit monotoning¬† but in the end, I pretty much found the chorus rather catchy and rememberable.

To my surprise, this is Alan’s first album that actually has a glimpse of J-pop. I don’t think I’m tired of her ballads but that seems to only be the type of music she sings. (It’s like Ayumi Hamasaki who was only famous for ballads but look at her now, she’s like an electronica machine.) As the second single of her Five elements project representing the Sky, I think that this was the best cover and single that she’s done.
