Gentle Words is very different regarding style and genre. Since she usually goes for the J-pop and laid back ballads, this new urban arrangement was something interesting. Personally, I’m not really into urban music but at least Kuu’s vocals sounded very presentable.

Without Your Love is another Urban oriented track, this time being R&B. It seems that Kuu is really improving her English now that the lyrics sound very pronunciated and clear. Like I said, Urban is not really my intake in the music department but it made a great B-side to accompany the A-side.

Saigo no ame is your typical laid-back track. In contrast with Gentle Words and Without Your Love, Kuu’s vocals actually “reaches” me. But it’s definitely B-side material.

Personal Rating: 4/5
