I really have been missing out on Hitomi Shimatani’s music. Well, here’s a review of her latest release from months ago…

SMILES sounded more like a laid back pop song with acoustic elements and a few beats here and there. Although there wasn’t much going on in the arrangement, I have to say that I liked this song quite a bit since the chorus was able to develop the song as well as display Shimatani’s outstanding vocals.

Stay with me was oritened in a similar way with the A-side but at least there’s more put into the arrangement. Personally, I thought Stay with me would have been more better off if it was the A-side but at least the single still turned out quite decently.
