These statistic kiddies are playing tag in the playground of Vocadb!

Overview:

Not only has it been forever that I’ve done this, but I’m trying to find a rut to get into. I want to completely fill up my E.P. albums on the main page so it will look filled instead of just underdone! I’m just a forgetful and lazy sloth- but since sloths die if they have intense heart rates, I try not to see if that’s true. Let’s get on with the reviewing of otetsu’s work… that you can buy from either Amazon or iTunes!

Tracklist:

  • Child’s Garden
  • RED
  • Incineration

Emotion Rating: Look under the song titles in the “Detailed Review” to see Mr. Opinion Face’s emotion on the song. Plus, if there is a “Sawbat Approved” Icon, the song is top notch as mine and Sawbat’s favorite of the album- we have the same tastes.

Sawbat Approved:

9-10: (⋂‿⋂) – Love It!

7-8: (•‿•) – Good!

5-6: (•~•) – Meh!

3-4: (•︵•) – Disappointment!

1-2: (╥﹏╥) – It Sucks!

Detail Review:

1) Child’s Garden

Emotion: (⋂‿⋂) – Love It!

At least it’s rock so I can properly review it instead of dubstep. The best way I can describe this is if you’ve read my review of Yucha-P’s Casino! album, this has a lot of sounds and instruments that match! But hey, that just makes me like it more! It has a very vibrating riff that makes you flow to the beat of the acoustic guitar. It also has some dessert tune that accentuates Luka’s voice. I think it has a harpsichord in there somewhere in the back, but I can’t exactly place it. Overall, the song is solid and a perfect alternative rock song that shows you exactly what “Alternative” means!

2) RED

Emotion: (⋂‿⋂) – Love It!

 –

More intense than the poster song above, it has an essence of urgency that slowly molds itself into a chorus just like Child’s Garden- I guess they were created using the same stanza lines, but they are on an E.P.- which just means each song is a continuation of the first! This song has little going for it other than the harder sound it brings, mainly because it is so much like the first song. The problem is, it’s in Japanese and I can’t understand her, so that is a bigger difference too!

3) Incineration

Emotion: (⋂‿⋂) – Love It!

This song crossfades from RED, and is perfectly synced with the tempo, rhythm, notes, stanza, and even Luka’s voice stays completely consistent throughout the songs. This is confusing for me, because I’m reviewing each individual song, but what I should be doing on this particular one is reviewing them all as one song, because that’s the way this is going… each song is 3 minutes long, so the whole of it takes about 12 minutes to listen to- I’ve heard songs way past that mark! I give respect to those who can play a song past 8 minutes, but this doesn’t count since it’s an E.P.

I still like it though!

4) 殻 (Kara)

 

 

 

 

 

This is much slower, and also different than the last 3, it has a bit of blues and jazz in it that really brings out the sorrow of Luka’s voice. Remember when I said Luka’s voice never deviates from her octave on the last one? Well, I kinda lied, because she does go deep and vibrato herself into a perfect wedge of sorrow that you can feel from the guitar and violin. Towards the end, I’d call it an alternative folk song, even though I have no idea what she is saying, I still feel the story- that I don’t know what it, but I bet it’s sad!

Like maybe the playground that she played on as a kid was put to flames to create more and bigger things, as the ashes of her memories flow within the wind, knowing that if those memories were made of stone, it wouldn’t allow her to grow more- and we can all take from that!

Quickie Review:

9 out of 10

Emotion: (⋂‿⋂) – Love It!

I’m still not sure how to provide the pic to iTunes! I’ve tried putting the codes in and everything, but it just doesn’t work like Amazon does… Okay, so here’s what I’m going to do, you can get this on either Amazon or iTunes! Take your pick.
