hands ends up being a ballad. It sounded like a pretty strong ballad but there was no development whatsoever through the song because the chorus doesn’t seem to stand out but rather blend in with the verses. Althgouh this was a pretty strong track, I still think that Kuu could still add more to her ballads. (Since she’s really good with pop and R&B and still has a chance to be good with ballads as well.)

Through the sky is another ballad with much stronger instrumentals and vocals. I thought that this was better off being the A-side becuase it’s like a step up from hands. The arrangement was probably one of the best elements in the song since Kuu’s vocals seems to be overwhelmed by them. Great song but where’s the balance?
