Asian Kung-Fu Generation: Korogaru Iwa, Kimi ni Asa ga Furu

1. Korogaru Iwa, Kimi ni Asa ga Furu

2. Enoshima Esker

Korogaru Iwa, Kimi ni Asa ga Furu is Asian Kung-Fu Generation’s eleventh single, released on February 6th, 2008. It reached #4 on Oricon and has sold 43 891.

Korogaru Iwa, Kimi ni Asa ga Furu (rolling rock, morning shines upon you) is a lot calmer than the two previous singles, but a lot more catchier instead. It begins with slow guitar plucking, and then introduces Goto’s voice subtly. Although the verses are very good, I was expecting more of a chorus, but it will do. The grungy guitars and the powerful drums are this song’s focal point, and prove to be even better than they first sound, especially during the relaxing bridge. Thumbs up for three four-star singles in a row!

Enoshima Esker (Enoshima being the name of a place) is my favorite of the three B-Sides, just because it seems like they worked a lot more on it than Yuigahama Kite and Kugenuma Surf. Nonetheless, the song is still pretty average.
