I’ve read around that Buono!’s latest actually doesn’t sound like Buono! music at all. In a way, I can see how this makes sense, but then again is completely wrong. I think it’s because Bravo☆Bravo sounds like a mixture between Rotarra Rotarra and MY BOY, thus creating a new sound never heard before from the group. But if this single were released earlier, lets say, before MY BOY and Take It Easy! then I don’t think it would receive the same response.

The a-side is extremely good! Not only does it have on of those great Buono! hooks(like Rottara Rottara in well, you know) with P-A-T-I(who I still don’t know who/what it is) but has a high octane instrumental with very easy to remember verses. I also liked the way they all sing together as a trio during the entire song, with each girl having one solo in each bridge, with Momoko getting her own shorter chorus near the end. It really is a great song and I’m loving the way Buono! is releasing their music now. A lot more mature from their debut music.

-Winter Story- is even one of their better b-sides! Although it does have a winter theme in its name and lyrics, the instrumental is just your typical Buono! style, but with a harder edge. The girl’s vocals are particularly crisp and on-point here, which is very refreshing. I was surprised that the song was so intense for a holiday type song(which is most evident in that awesome chorus) and that Buono! pulled it off so well. Props to Miyabi for great vocals.
