GIRL NEXT DOOR – Orion

1. Orion

2. Toki no Shizuku

3. Drive away (GOGO’s Remix)

4. Orion (Instrumental)

I’m so glad this single is finally out because 1. I have wanted it to for a while and 2. I haven’t reviewed anything in quite a while, mostly because there hasn’t been anything coming out to review. Regardless, on with my review.

I was very pleased with “Orion” since piano and strings are the main instruments in this song. It’s a mid-paced winter ballad that has a lot to offer. I thought Chisa’s vocals were really great and on point and I really liked the guitar solo in the bridge. It’s a little short and I would have liked a slightly stronger emphasis on certain instruments but it’s a strong track overall.

Score – 9

“Toki no Shizuku” starts off pretty calm and sets the tone of the whole song, which at 7 minutes long makes it a bit of a bore. At some points it just feels like it should have ended somewhere and hasn’t yet. Forgetting about the length for a second, the song isn’t that bad as much as a bit unremarkable. It’s forgettable and sometimes Chisa’s vocals sound a bit odd.

Score – 7.5

Score –

The “GOGO’s Remix” of Drive away was a bit annoying and I couldn’t really listen to it. Although this is to be expected since I’m not a fan of traditional remixes.

Score – 6

Final Note

Love Orion, Toki no Shizuku is a snooze fest and, oh… a remix… cool.
