Minorin’s 3rd album with Lantis.
Song 1: Kakusei Filament
I think this song does a better job of opening up the album than Parade. It’s not as good as Contact, but it’s still better than Toumei Park. Definitely an upbeat song. I don’t like her vocals that much in this song though. She’s trying to scream too much. I think it’s also a bit too low. It’s just boring overall.
Song 2: Final Moratorium
The highlight of the album. Just listening to it has a less powerful effect than watching the PV, but it’s still a great song, undoubtedly. She doesn’t try to scream and her vocals are way nicer in this track. The composition, I feel, particularly helps reinforce the effect of the song. 😀 The only turn down is that there’s weird Engrish inserted in there. I can deal with that though.
Song 3: Tomorrow’s Chance
For some reason, listening to this track after Final Moratorium appeals to me more than first listening to it on the single… It feels like Final Moratorium helped breath life into this once dead song. That’s a good thing. The strings are still great. 🙂
Song 4: Kakikake no Destiny
The first ten seconds is boring. Then it caught me. Great guitar intro. I really like the flow of this song. As expected, it’s another upbeat song like the three preceding it on the album. Again, that’s good. Overall, it’s a pretty powerful song, but, it gets a little repetitive towards the last thirty seconds though. IT’S ROCK. 😀
Song 5: Kodoku no Kessho
I DO NOT like the opening to this. Or one-fourth of the song for that point. After the one minute mark is when this song is picking up for me. Even then, I don’t like the composition. Blergh. Minorin’s vocals are nice though.
Song 6: Love Medicine*
The opening thirty seconds or so was nice. Then you have this uber long 30 minute instrumental only and it starts to die from there. And it gets kinda revived at 1:50. Then it dies again. It’s just another boring song.
Song 7: Ameoto no Bell/Veil (either one works…right?)
Ahahaha. The first twenty seconds trick you like Aoi Kotou. Then it breaks into a ballad-y song. Pretty calming. It’s a good song and a great bandage after the wound called Love Medicine* (ironic isn’t it).
Song 8: tea for two
I love the musical composition. Minorin sings pretty well in this too, though I think it’s a tad nasally. But otherwise, it’s a great track. I tend to like the majority of her acoustic songs. I think the song totally fits the title. Maybe that’s because I have images of Minorin’s Parade mini photobook running through my head.
Song 9: PRECIOUS ONE
I feel it’s no different from the time I heard it on the single. I think it’s a good follow up to tea for two though. The strings on this track are great as well. I also like the flow of this one too.
Song 10: Sakura Pierce
The string opening is wonderfullll. Hehehe. An upbeat song. It’s not bad, but it’s still pretty boring. Not much to say about it. She sings well, the song’s good, but it’s still boring.
Song 11: Falling heaven’s now
The first twenty seconds are great. Then it tricks you again. Ohohoho. It’s a pretty fast paced and upbeat song. I like it. Though she sings a bit too loud at some parts. Composition is wonderful.
Song 12: Flame
Another strings opening. It’s pretty dull though. The track starts to pick up though, but, it’s still pretty boring. Plus, it’s repetitive. Boring + repetitive = not good.
Song 13: Perfect energy
Another correctly titled song. It’s upbeat and not boring. Her vocals are good for the most part, but she gets a little shouty at some time. The composition matches with her voice well.
Song 14: sing for you
The closer of the album. The instrumental is absolutely beautiful. The lyrics are written by Minorin herself. I don’t understand that much Japanese (yet) so that doesn’t really matter to me. XP But the lyrics, to me, fit the song. A wonderful closer to a kinda wonderful album.
Average score: 6.9
And so concludes this review of Sing All Love. We probably shouldn’t be expecting another single release from Minorin until around October-ish since she’s busy with the tour until like May.
