1. Namida no Tane, Egao no Hana
2. Gozen Rokuji
3. Milky Kiss
4. Namida no Tane, Egao no Hana (Instrumental)
Namida no Tane, Egao no Hana sounded “lighter” in terms of rhythm and instrumentation. The good thing is that this isn’t her usual “cute” pop and more of a rock oriented song. From the looks (or sound) I think that Shokotan would be more successful in the rock genre.
Gozen Rokuji also takes on the face of the A-side by singing out a laid back rock themed arerangement. Still, I perfer Namida no Tane, Egao no Hana because her vocals sounded a bit sloppy throughout some parts of the song.
Apparently Milky Kiss does turn out to be one of Shokotan’s bubblegum pop songs but this one actually comes out decent. Her vocals sound a bit more mature compared to her older cute pop songs. The overall atmosphere of the song seems to have older sounds but in a way, the song seemed to be one of Shokotan’s most original.
Personal Rating: 4/5
