1. Kaihouku

3. Kaihouku (Instrumental)
4. Eternity (Instrumental)

(Keep in mind that this is Shimatani’s debut in Pop ever since she stopped doing Enka music)

When I first listened to Kaihouku, I remember hearing one of the verses from somewhere. And then I realized that it was used for some commercial back in the day. Kind of random but this song sounded so familiar when I first heard this. Anyways, I actually liked Kaihouku with all of the nice beats and background music. The overall track sounded great when I first listened to it but now that I have listened to it again, I begin to feel that her vocals sound a little off… (Is it just me?)

I would say that Eternity was better than the A-side. The keyboard instrumentals serves as the powerhouse of the song and Shimatani’s vocals worked well with them. Great listen!
