There were no pre-released singles before Balcony. This is the first release after reuniting last year.

Kaleidoscope, in the rain, and SUN SUN EYES were not pop tracks but are performed at a faster tempo then the rest of the album. Kaleidoscope has the acoustic sound but it’s pretty upbeat for the most part. in the rain and SUN SUN EYES were unique in their own ways since one is R&B oriented while the other one sounds like an 80’s song.

Hoshi, and Anata Shika Inai were pretty much considered laid-back ballads or easy listening. With both of them having a great control over the mood and feel of the song, I thought that the acoustic guitar and the vocals blended rather nicely.

Koibumi -Album Ver.-, and Saiai no Hito were ballads cinsisting of powerful vocals and arrangement. Especially Saiai no Hito which sounded pretty slow and boring at first but thanks to Azumi’s vocals, Saiai no Hito happens to be one of my favorite tracks.

Personal Rating: 4/5
