how beautiful you are – Ayumi Hamasaki

1. how beautiful you are

2. how beautiful you are (Instrumental)

A short one today, a digi single in anticipation for her new album Party Queen, which I can’t wait for.

“how beautiful you are” is naturally a ballad and quite a typical one for Ayumi. One thing I must commend is the simplicity of the arrangement. It’s not overly grandiose which was refreshing, though it does build a little as the song progresses so it’s definitely not a bore at the same time. The song contains piano and strings and the occasional harp which makes it that much more lovely. I really liked the vocalizing in the bridge and even more so when it built up after the first round, it’s probably one of my favorite parts of the song.

Score – 8

Final Note

Not bad, honestly, really can’t wait for all the new songs coming from the upcoming album.
