74 Suki de Shite Average: 6,75 Highest scorers: 9,5x1 (@RUNAWAY), 9x1 (@Music Is Life) Lowest scorers: 2x1 (@V3RYP05H), 5x2 (@cookiedough, @Cutlery) My score: 7,5 It's not a ballad! Kinda. Still another strike for "inside". Produced by Inoue Shinjiroh (tonne of Tohoshinki stuff) and written by him and Kumi, the song is of the newer caliber on the album. It's a pleasant enough listen as you can tell from my score. Basically it's one of those "feel good" songs that try to lift your spirits with their peppy nature, although with less memorable melodies or ideas. For instance, something like "Someday" or "IN THE AIR" make for a lot more compelling end product. I certainly enjoy this and Kumi sounds nice, but there is nothing really engaging about this. Do I sound like I don't have much to say about this, dddd? The lyrics are kinda unimaginative and reductive, but there still was this little gem of a line: Whenever I call out for you, I just love your face as you turn around I call out to you for no reason. Say gently, "What's wrong?" (c) @otenkiame 'Tis cute. Let's see what @V3RYP05H (2) had to say about the album overall, since he like to be at the bottom so much, "The songs from W Face ~inside~ were just songs that after repeatedly retrying the album I just couldn’t stand. That album to me, as a whole, is so boring that I actually felt buyer’s remorse after my first listen and still do every time I revisit the album. None of the songs are top shelf Kuu songs for me, but those four songs below a 3 I can’t even finish to this day. Suki de Shite is pure dentist office music to me" What does it mean? @Cutlery (5) was whelmed, "Well it's a jazzy venture alright. The strings are pretty and Kuu sounds good at least." Honestly, I read "jazzy" as "lazy" three times in a row, dddd. I wasn't the only one comparing this to other songs with @Weslicious (7) hearing another happy ditty, "A lesser Lovely, but still good." Lovely @otenkiame (7) heard "Lovely" as well, "Something a little bouncy and jazzy that sorta reminds me of "Lovely". Actually, yeah, it really does remind me of "Lovely", but with the melt-in-your-mouth sweetness dialed down. I guess, as far as cute tracks go, I think this is pretty good; enough so that I can enjoy it periodically when it pops up on my shuffle." Guess it was inevitable with this kind of soundscape. I'm pretty sure this is one of those "never performed live" songs.
