Aimer - RE:I AM

                                                                             Mobile Suit Gundam UC theme

Tracklist:


1. RE:I AM
2. Hoshi no Kieta Yoru ni
3. Kyokara Omoi de
4. RE:I AM (Instrumental)
5. Hoshi no Kieta Yoru ni (Instrumental)


1. RE:I AM

The track starts off as a great sounding rock ballad, but it turns out that most of the song is actually a usual arrangement with piano and acoustic guitars. Still, the song is pretty enjoyable, and Aimer's voice has a very nice, dry colour, with perfect control of it. Many musicians today don't know the line between a song being too slow to be engaging, or hitting the right spot, which Aimer did.
Rating: 9

2. Hoshi no Kieta Yoru ni

Making a step away from the rockyness of the previous song, this time it is more of an alternative atmosphere. The song is whispy and calm, but I am simply amazed by its complexity and layers. If you listen carefully, a bell which is constantly repeating the same tones is present through the whole track, making it a bit hypnotic but awesome at the same time. Aimer's voice is layered, not in the pure form like it was in the previous song, fitting the arrangement.
Rating: 10

3. Kyokara Omoi de

Out of the three, this one is probably the simplest, though its composition makes it feel heavy in a way, because of the deep, strong piano and the marching drums. Every song in this single seems to have a surprise in it, and this time it's a choir following the main vocals. Although it's not quite as interesting, this also makes a good ballad.
Rating: 8

I'm very glad I discovered an artist like Aimer, because the songs in this single were outstanding, and so is her voice. Do you know she did a cover of Lady Gaga's Poker Face in excellent English?
My overall rating for this release is: 9
