Comments by Emily K.

Mihata no Moto ni (ST3 cast f/ Erica)
The new game OP. This one has a more distinct French sound with the accordian solo mixed in, whereas "Geki! Teikoku Kagekidan" had a more traditional Japanese style with instruments during the intermezzo.
Hana no Paris (Mel & Ci)
A cute French-y song. It's upbeat, but kind of suave/accordian sounding.
Inori (Erica)
It starts out very "holy-like," but it grows into a pop tune, so the title doesn't really fit very well. ^_^; Catchy melody. But I just don't like Noriko's voice that much...
Heroica ~ Eiyuu Densetsu (Glycine)
A very grand and regal song, almost opera-like. Fully orchestrated.
192455631 (Lobelia)
Any Inoue Kikuko fan should appreciate this -- it really doesn't sound like Kikuko the first time you hear it. There's a steady beat in the background and it's a pretty grim song, performed very well. (My highlight on the album.)
Isshou ni Arukou (Coquelicot)
It starts off with an odd bagpipe melody, then morphs into this very catchy pop tune. This is *very* catchy. ^_^;
Kokoro no Kasa wa (Hanabi)
A very beautiful and melancholy piano ballad. The vocals are well done and it fits Hanabi's image. Another highlight on the album.
Sentimental na... (Kanna, Maria, Kohran)
A pop tune by the trio from their game episode -- it's a happy song. This is my second favorite group song.
Kimi Shinobu Uta (Sakura, Sumire, Iris)
A sad piano ballad by the other trio from their game episode. Sakura and Sumire sing solos, and Iris only gets a bridge (Kumiko gets gypped of a real solo). A pretty yet draggy song.
Kokoro no Oki Basshou (Orihime & Reni)
This is different from all ST songs from now because this has a very modern R&B feel. It begins with a 1 minute piano introduction which leaps into the R&B beats. It's actually done very well and their voices are very nice together. My favorite Tokyo Hanagumi song.
Geki! Teikoku Kagekidan (Teikoku Kagekidan)
The group sings the entire song together. During the first verse, Maria, Sumire, and Sakura have one-word solos. During the second verse, Kohran, Kanna, and Iris have one-word solos. I like how Kumiko says "otome." ^_^
Mirai ~ Voyage (Paris Kagekidan)
A very "Lion King"-style song, kind of safari-esque. This is the game's ending song. I don't like this one too much..
