ASCA – Vivid World

Good, anthemic power.

ATEEZ – Not Okay

I wrote about this right here. I didn’t suppose it was that nice.

BE:FIRST – Set Sail

Positively on the poppier aspect of their materials. I discover it humorous {that a} card sport of all issues will get a tie-up music!

Blue Encount & Takashi Sorimachi – Poison

It is a cowl of a 90’s rock music, which might be why it appeals to me a lot.

Exile The Second – We Are The Finest

With that title and the group’s historical past, I hoped for some massive EDM knockout. As a substitute, that is an oddly theatrical ballad. It’s good for what it’s, however I’m sort of confused by their route.

Fantastics – Up to date Life

I am keen on the drama this music is taken from. The music itself, not a lot.

Fantastics x EPEX – Peppermint Yum

This surprising J-pop/Okay-pop collaboration lastly has a music video. The music has grown on me, however I nonetheless want it was extra Fantastics and fewer EPEX.

Girls2 – Magic

A catchy, Okay-pop fashion woman group monitor.

Ugh. Make it cease. I’m so sick of those shouty songs.

One N’ Solely – Talkin’

Normal boy group fare.

I actually get pleasure from Miyase in dramas, so I’ve been interested in his musical profession. That is most likely his strongest single but and a pleasant route for his sound.

UVERworld – Eye’s Sentry

A stable rock monitor, if that’s your factor.

Chisato Moritaka – Stress (1989)

I haven’t but featured any songs from the 80’s, so why don’t we begin out with this addictive traditional? It’s considered one of my favorites.
