水樹奈々20シングル-「夢幻」

After weeks of waiting and listening to previews over Mの世界, I finally received my single yesterday night. Really thanks to my NS friend シトさん who brought it into camp while I was on duty and of course バカボイ who had to stand my incessant ranting on weekdays over the collection of the CD.

This is the so called darker side of 深愛, 奈々ちゃん’s 19th Single released when season 1 of White Album aired one year ago. Keeping up with the nice enamel coloured CD case for 深愛, 夢幻 also has a nice navy coloured casing. Note that these are only true for 1st press, which makes it all the more worthwhile to get.

Along with the single, information on Live Academy and the BD/DVD release of Live Diamond x Fever were also given. As some have pointed out, what is 奈々ちゃん thinking by hosting her concert at 福岡 on Valentine’s Day? (lawl)

Tracks:
01. 夢幻
作詞:水樹奈々
作曲:上松範康(Elements Garden)
編曲:藤田淳平(Elements Garden)

As usual, this combo delivers well, though as a fan I would like 奈々ちゃん’s songs to be written not so exclusively by Elements Garden, because Elements Garden writes songs for many アニソン artistes, and when there’s less competition (amongst the composers), quality usually suffers.

Back to the song itself, I like the way the lyrics are so smoothly linked together in the chorus part, which I think few can pull off such an execution ≧ω≦

02. 天空のカナリア
作詞:Hibiki
作曲・編曲:加藤裕介

This is the OP for Tales of Symphonia the Animation. Another great song with excellent tune and lyrics.

03. Dear Dream
作詞・作曲:しほり
編曲:齋藤真也・IPEMOTO

Hmm, Card Gakuen doesn’t deserve such a nice song as its ED. Dear Dream is a kind of song not unlike 空時計 or SUPER GENERATION, relaxing and enjoyable.

04. STORIES
作詞:神田怜鴎・斉田和典
作曲:サイトウヨシヒロ
編曲:古川貴浩

Hmm, a good concluding song? All I can say is that I really enjoyed all 4 tracks.

LQ Version available here as usual: http://www.box.net/shared/bm9sqd2n44, though I will strongly encourage buying the single especially since the main track 夢幻 is a such a track that only listening to the original gives it the justice it deserve.
