UVERworld: Koishikute

Koishikute is UVERworld’s eleventh single, released on September 10th, 2008. 

Compared to their previous single, with the A-Sides Gekidou and Just Break the Limit!, Koishikute (as I yearn for you) is a more gentle ballad, and although I’m not a big fan of UVERworld ballads, this is a massive step up from their previous single. The verses are quite boring, and TAKUYA could’ve done better on the vocals, but the chorus features a really nice rock-ballad type arrangement which redeemed the song’s verses.

When the A-Side is a ballad, you’d usually expect a high-octane type of rock song (which often goes wrong), but here we have an exception. But with a title like Kokorozashi (last will), what more could you expect? Interestingly enough, this ballad is R&B flavored, and it’s pretty good. So the rapping vocals and the “everybody say yeah” repeated over ten times was annoying, but the rest of the song is pretty good. 

Over The Stoic is a short track, not even reaching three minutes, which features the high-octane one may have been looking for in the previous track. It’s a n instrumental of a previously released track (with some vocals toward the end), and I have to say, I really like it. Far better than Kokorozashi, and maybe even Koishikute.
