52nd Single: Tsunagu  
Konnichiwa minna!

Been stressed out lately... It's only half of mid terms, but it feels like finals already... Totally tired and my schedule is just as ugly as me. There's no rest day! I hate it! Fudgin' hate it.

Anyhoo, since Arashi is one of my stress-relievers and I'm enjoying their latest releases, I've decided to make a review about their 52nd single, Tsunagu. And man! I love this one!

RE Tracks:

1.) Tsunagu
                The title track and the theme song for the movie, Shinobi no Kuni, starring our Satoshi Ohno together with his kouhai Yuri Chinen. During its promotion, Ohno described this track as a love song. And indeed, it is! The lyrics are totally fit for the romance between Ohno and Satomi's characters, Mumon and Okuni respectively, which is really cool ◎[▪‿▪]◎. I love how upbeat the melody is. Those drum beats are just perfection and head boppin'! The members' voices are just right~ Overall, an awesome A-side \^o^/.

2.) Reach for the sky ~Ten made Todoke~
                The theme song for JAL CM. When I first heard this one, I was totally slayed by Nino and Sho's lines in the beginning. If you're going to ask me, this will be awesome as a second A-side track ^_^. It's just wonderful and simply beautiful (▰˘◡˘▰). The lyrics are uplifting and positive, your typical Arashi song (*⌒▽⌒*)θ~♪! For the melody, I can feel that if you combine Bittersweet (some fans call it Bittersweet 2.0 xDD) and Power of the Paradise, you'll have this as their offspring ✌.ʕʘ‿ʘʔ.✌.

3.) Dakishimetai
                I totally screamed upon hearing this song for the first time. Twitter is my witness. The tune is very soothing and fantastic for my ears! After the loud drum beating in Tsunagu, this will be good as the next song on the playlist. Their vocals are just alluring and fun to listen! Meanwhile, the lyrics are somehow close to Arashi's ONLY LOVE song from their How's It Going? album. Short words: Definitely my jam (✿◠‿◠)!

4.) Under the radar
                Melody wise, it's somehow sexy. Kinda like unknown mixed with Round and Round and Asterisk or Intergalatic, minus the digital twist. Upon hearing the English lines, I can say that their pronunciation and diction improved a bit, which is just awesome as heck (ʘ෴̴͜ʘ). Totally a catchy track with a LSS line of Under the radar~. 


LE Track:

2.) Oki ni Mesu Mama
                 I love this one! Its gentle tune is just perfect for a lazy afternoon and I really find it cute when they say "God bless you!' ೭੧(❛▿❛✿)੭೨. I would love to listen to this song every Sunday while lounging around the house! It's very soothing and I really love how Arashi used their vocals for this one!


In a nutshell, Tsunagu is a great single. Another fave of mine! The songs are purely amazing. I really love the PV! It is just cool and sexy, and I really find it charming that Ohno had the time to choreograph the dance steps ^_^.

Jaa! Going to relax, I mean prepare for school later! Enjoy!
