Apparently, both of misono’s releases were give relatively average reviews but after listening to Speedrive, I begin to appreciate the older releases more. For the most part, the song is quite messy and laid back. But I find it quite funky when I hear bits of the arrangement attempting to imitate the screeching of a skidding wheels. While misono’s vocals have shown a little improvement since the last release, this doesn’t seem to be the song to use it to its potential.

Ari to Kirigirisu ~10 years later~ sounded a bit generic at first but then progresses into stronger vocals and more instruments. The pace of the song does seem faster and misono does continue to keep up with her stronger vocals. But there was some part in the middle when her vocals get cut off or something… Porbably one of her better B-sides.

Personal Rating: 3.5/5
