I figured that I should really start working on the artists with a large discography so here’s today’s review on a Hitomi Shimatani release!

I think that this was during the time when Hitomi was still exploring some new genres with her music. So Neva Eva pretty much sounds more unique than her past releases since it displays a great selection of background music with all of the guitars playing. At least nothing sounded out of place or awkward in this song so Neva Eva actually made me pretty satisfied.

I also thought that Hakuchuumu was a pretty strong B-side. Even though I greatly preferred the A-side, Hakuchuumu also had some great points. Like when you could hear the really strong brasses playing and supporting Hitomi’s vocals in the background. (Ever since listening to Shoko Nakagawa’s debut album, I’ve been more aware of the background music.)

Personal Rating: 4/5
