With their first album, DoriMusu1, being released shortly a radio rip of one of Dream Morning Musume's songs has just been released. The song is entitled Atto Odoroku Mirai Gayattekuru, and is an original song from the new group. It is one of two orginal songs that will be released on their debut album.
Since the announcement of Dream Morning Musume I have been waiting for original songs. I wondered what they would sound like, who would sing when, and how they would measure up to actual Morning Musume's current songs/singles. The song is not at all what I was expecting it to sound like. To be honest, I'm not exactly sure what I was expecting. Obviously a song that show cased the girl's polished singing abilities. Music wise I think the song sounds a lot like a slightly toned down version of Aozora ga Itsumademo Tsuzuku You na Mirai de Are mixed with a slightly toned down version of Narihajimeta Koi no Bell. Which, is actually a really good mixture because I really love both songs. And Aozora ga Itsumademo Tsuzuku You na Mirai de Are is one of my all time favorite Morning Musume songs. I think the song sounds really nice. It's extremely laid back and pleasant to listen to. It's not really over the top. It's sort of like the calmer songs Kaori and Yuko used to release.
I was a little dissapointed by the vocals, for two reaons. The first reason is a majority of the song was sung all together. Since all the older members I really wanted to have a chance to hear them as much as possible. But I shouldn't complain about that so early on. I'm sure each member will be featured a lot more throught the album. The second complaint I have about the vocals is the solo lines. Some of the best singers in Morning Musume are in trhis group but the solo lines were so soft, and not really all the impressive vocally. I think Yuko's, Nacchi's,Mari's, Miki's, and Yossie's solos were the best out of all of them. I love Koharu to death but her solo didn't sound all that great. The same goes for Rika. Rika kind of sounded like a frog in her solo, and Koha was doing that screechy thing she does. But that's to be expected because they are part of the worst singers of Morning Musume. Other than that, the rest of the solos were good. They weren't great, they were good. I just love how the song was divided perfectly so every member got their one little solo line.
Now I'm really looking forward to hearing their second original song. And of course the rest of the album.
