Ame no Waltz

Artist: Kaori Mochida
Release Date: January 28, 2009
Label: Avex Trax
Personal Rating: 3/5

1. Ame no Waltz
2. Drop
3. Kokoro
Ame no Waltz is definitely something different when Every Little Thing’s lead singer is the vocalist. As the title states, the song is a waltz which is a major contrast from her older music. The overall arrangement is good but it seems that her vocals took a step down from her since her last ELT release. (Well, ELT’s album before this solo single)

Drop sounds better with both a decent arrangement and vocals. (Which are more better off with this song) I would say that the laid back atmosphere of the arrangement and the acoustic sounds made the B-side much more interesting than Ame no Waltz.

Finally, Kokoro turns out to be one of the weaker tracks of the single. Sure its a ballad but it isn’t my shining idea of “heartwarming.” In fact, the arrangment sounds pretty simplisitc. At least it somehow becomes stronger near the end. (Kind of like Alan’s Megumi no Ame)

Personal Rating: 3/5
