UVERworld: Hakanaku mo Towa no Kanashi

Hakanaku mo Towa no Kanashi, UVERworld1. Hakanaku mo Towa no Kanashi

2. Taion

3. Halzion

Hakanaku mo Towa no Kanashi is UVERworld’s twelfth single, released on November 19th, 2008. It reached #1 on Oricon and has sold 177 290 copies. It is the first opening for the second season of Mobile Suit Gundam oo.

My favorite part of Hakanaku mo Towa no Kanashi (everlasting and fleeting sadness) has to be the blurred opening sequences. The vocal distortion, which appear only there, was great. But after that the song does disappoint, although I think it’s better than Gekidou and Just Break the Limit!. It seems slightly disorganized at certain points during the verses, but the chorus is pretty awesome in its own right.

Taion (body temperature) is an acoustic ballad, and TAKUYA∞ sounds thoroughly depressed. This song is a whole lot better than the A-Side, for the simple reason that it’s more structured, goes in one direction, and the vocal work is quite nice.

Halzion (a Philadelphia Daisy) opens in the same style as Taion, but then turns into UVERworld within a minute or so. The blast of instruments was slightly off, but after that, this song is pretty good and actually quite catchy. I dare say that, without that beginning, this song would be the best on this single.
