1. to Mother
3. GLORIA ~YUI Acoustic Version~
4. to Mother ~Instrumental~
Yui looks really serene in this cover! But the first thought that came in to mind was “why is she not posing with the guitar here!?” And then I remembered how Angela Aki wasn’t posing with the piano in her latest single…
to Mother… could that be a dedication? The great thing is that is sounded very sweet and soothing because all of the instruments of the arrangement seemed to fall in place nicely. I would also like to note a few transition between tones throughout the song which adds more of a flavor to the music. Another great A-side from Yui!
Apparently, Tonight turns out to be a rather short all-out aggresive song compared to the A-side. Overall, the arrangement and vocal performance sounded alright since it’s been a while since I last heard an aggressive song from Yui. ….Maybe I would appreciate the song more if I had?
There wasn’t much of a differences between the GLORIA ~YUI Acoustic Version~ and the original because the orginal was already acoustic to begin with. The only difference is that there’s now a piano. (Maybe if they changed more components -speed, arrangement, etc- I would have loved this version) But this turned out to suit the single well because Gloria is sounds so damn catchy.
Personal Rating: 4.5/5
