4. SPLASH (Instrumental)
Hm… I really like Shimatani in this cover art.
Ichiba ni Ikou is different in terms of style. Instead of the usual, western influenced pop, Shimatani goes out with a more European taste but still maintaining the captivating style that she has. This is considered to be one of the strongest of Shimatani’s music but this didn’t totally grab my attention.
SPLASH is another European influenced track but I highly perferred this over the A-side. Why? The arrangement sounds more fluids and the instrumentals and vocals flow well together. This song is probably the only reason why I would listen to the single.
At first, I wondered why the songs had such a distinguished style and then I realized that Ichiba ni Ikou mean “Let’s go to the marketplace.”
Personal Rating: 4/5
