4. Over the clouds (Instrumental)
I usually get really excited whenever it came to any releases from alan. (Although her past album was such a bore) I didn’t really expect much from this single but I guess that she did a really good job with the covers this time!
I actually thought that Diamond would have been a great addition to life since it was the kind of ballad that wasn’t so boring to listen to. This ballad turned out great with so much similarity with essence of me. The use of percussions and guitars also added a nice touch to the soothing arrangement. I would usually think that this song would be so-and-so but since it sounded so much better than most of the songs of her past album, I guess I could appreciate this song more.
Now Over the clouds is probably one of the best A-sides as well as the best upbeat song that alan has ever done! It starts with a calm instrumental at the beginning and all of the sudden, there’s an aggressive, yet awesome upbeat atmosphere following! I thought that she did an okay job with the synchs back in her older releases but this was just too good. There are some parts of the song when her vocals sounds distorted which was also cool since she never distorted her voice in her other songs. Over the clouds definitely exceed my expectations and was definitely worth being the second A-side!
Personal Rating: 4.5/5
