Asu wa Date na no ni, Ima Sugu Koe ga Kikitai is S/mileage’s 2nd indies single and it was released on September 23, 2009.
1. Asu wa Date na no ni, Ima Sugu Koe ga Kikitai
2. Asu wa Date na no ni, Ima Sugu Koe ga Kikitai (Instrumental)
While their debut single had a cute touch to it, Asu wa Date na no ni, Ima Sugu Koe ga Kikitai takes it to the next level, though not in quality but in that it’s just your typical H!P synthy pop. That’s probably why I dislike this song. aMa no Jaku wasn’t anything mature from them but this track is just too kiddie for me to like. It’s not like I automatically dislike any kiddie H!P song but the arrangement and instrumental here is just that annoying and uninspired. If anything, the girls sound tolerable but don’t add much to the song.
I suppose Tsunku is still trying to capture the right sound for S/mileage and I hope he doesn’t stick with this. Of course, I’d kill for S/mileage to(further in their career) to try variety in their music(like C-ute has) and maybe one day pull off something fierce like Namida no Iro. Until then we shall deal with cute pop such as this.
