It seems that whether an H!P track is indies or major, it doesn’t effect it’s quality as S/mileages debut track aMa no Jaku is actually really impressive. Although the opening instrumental(and throughout the entire song really) screams “typical anime pop song”, what surprised me was how really opposite the song is to that stereotype. The instrumental is crisp and fresh and vocally, the girls really impressed me. I’d have to say that while their voices have a lot of maturing, they sound overall better than groups like Guardians 4 and the new revival groups.
I’m anxious to see what these girls will sound like in two or so years. They definitely have the potential to become a powerhouse H!P group.
