Crystal Kay – Forever
2. Forever (SKY HIGH REMIX)
3. Haru Arashi (BONEBOX REMIX)
4. Forever (Instrumental)
Yes I know this review is quite late. Unfortunately, on the day I was supposed to be typing it up the power went out, naturally, of course I’ve been fairly busy since then hence the delay. But fear not, here it is!
I honestly thought that “Forever” was going to be a ballad but it turned around and blew my expectations away. Turns out it’s an upbeat banger. The synths are on point and the overall atmosphere of the song is perfect for summertime. The beat is great and Crystal’s vocals are awesome as always. The song really shines as it incorporates a lot and makes it all work, right down to the tribal beats and chanting featured throughout. The high notes my girl hits at the very end are fantastic and reminds you why she is in the biz. I could listen to this song Forever, and since hearing it, I practically have.
Score – 9
Perfect summer song, great production.

You may have noticed that this review is a little bare, as I didn’t review the remixes. I’ve decided that while I know remixes aren’t all bad, typically I HATE them, so unless one blows me away and I actually think it’s worth mentioning, I’m just flat out not going to bother as I don’t want it to affect the overall rating of the single, thanks!

So there is this new artist that I have recently discovered (recently like, months ago, but whatevs) whose name is ROLA. She’s a Japanese model and “talent” which essentially means famous for being famous but hey she’s branching out and singing now! Not only that but her debut single will be the theme song to the new Pokemon movie!
Her singing debut was with the single “i hate u” which was a collaboration with ISSA and SoulJa under ISSAxSoulJa+ROLA which was released back in September. The song I actually found pretty good and I really like ROLA’s singing even though there is only a little and it’s towards the end. You can watch the video here. If I start reviewing ROLA I will actually probably start with this single in anticipation for her debut entitled “Memories”
So my question, to which I hopefully get SOME responses to, is this…
Going to take a real mini break on reviews on account of me going on vacation tomorrow. I’ll be gone for 9 days so it’s just a little short one. I’ll have a lot to get together once I get back so you’ll have to bear with me until I get everything in order again.
Just thought I’d let everyone know, and as always, thanks for reading ❤
A Little Harsh, Gretch.
So you may or may not have noticed that my most recent review of girl next door’s most recent album “Agaruneku” seemed a little on the harsh side, rating-wise, coming from me. And that’s because I’ve come to realize that I rate things a bit too highly. Shocking I know, (sarcasm) of course people have been telling me I’m too forgiving all my life but hopefully I can try to change that, at least with my reviews from here on out.
Unfortunately, it seems as if girl next door suffers from my new found revelation, although I think it’s a great example of how things will be from now on, for example, I can tell you this, had I not come to this realization and made a concious effort to utilize the other end of the rating spectrum, 5 and below, there would have been a lot of 6s and 7s in that review.
You also may or may not have noticed, that in the track listing there are now songs in blue. “What does this mean?” you ask? Recommended Tracks! Whooo. These tracks are either the best the album had to offer, or sometimes it might mean the only tracks you should really even bother with… More often than not, I’d imagine these tracks got an 8 or above, though I’m sure there could be some slight exceptions. This will only ever appear on album track listings just to let you guys know.
Anyway, I hope you guys enjoy all the more now and again, as always, thanks for reading! ❤
P.S. I’ll be working to sort every review by artist so you can simply click and read every review of that artist’s release. It might take a while… Why didn’t I think of this before?
That’s really all anyone needs to know, expect a new single review, more than likely GIRL NEXT DOOR’s Silent Scream, to be up tomorrow.

Just decided to post a quick update here since it’s been a while. As my little sidebar news thing says, it’s been hectic for me and I’ve been really busy with school but it’s all about to be over and as soon as it is I will have so much more free time. Therefor I will be updating this blog to the fullest and get back into the swing of things. Also, hopefully I’ll never get so busy again, I really don’t like not posting here.
I’ve also updated a few things such as the Reviewed Artists, Reviewed Games, and Upcoming Reviews pages.
Hope readers are still reading/waiting xD ❤

I mean really late. You know how something’s a little late, so you’re like, “Oh, I have to get that done.” But because it’s late you just put it off and put it off and put it off until it’s really late? Yeah… I do that a little too often.

OK, so the last word is mine, but still. This even just went on in Japan and they revealed a whole heap ton of new Square Enix related things, all Final Fantasy and Kingdom Hearts related. I haven’t felt the need to post and game news for a while, let’s just say this has inspired me.
First the little things, Agito was shown and apparently it’s name has been changed to “Final Fantasy Type-0” a trailer was shown and it doesn’t show any really new or exciting things.
Dissidia [duodecim] Final Fantasy got some love as well, Yuna was shown off in a new trailer, and it was mentioned that the character Prishe from Final Fantasy XI would be making an appearance as a Cosmos warrior. A few attendees also mentioned that there seemed to be hints of Gilgamesh in the new trailer but they couldn’t be sure, an he did not specifically appear, so who knows about that.
On to the bigger news, Kingdom Hearts 3D has officially been given its final subtitle, and prepare yourself. Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance. I have a feeling the subtitle takes strong inspiration or is an allusion to the gameplay styles you will see in the game. An oh yeah, THE TRAILER IS OUT.
The most speculated news turned out to be true after all with Final Fantasy XIII-2 Officially being announced and a short trailer was shown alongside it, as well as the new logo.
The game will supposedly be released THIS YEAR and is for both PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 and it’s being developed for both consoles simultaneously.
And the moment most people have been waiting for finally came. Final Fantasy Versus XIII keeps it’s name the way it is, is still absolutely exclusive to PlayStation 3 and a brand new trailer was show. Not only is it partly voiced, but it’s 6 minutes long and a ton of new scenes are shown as well as gameplay footage.
So this conference ended up being pretty damn informational, the trailers have all been leaked however, official released are soon to follow which is rare for Square Enix. Another rarity is that FFXIII-2 Will be releasing in 2011? Announcing a game the same year it will be released? Almost unheard of for Square. Maybe this is a sign of good things to come. I can only hope that Kingdom Hearts 3D Dream Drop Distance comes out just as quickly.
This is a little late but there are a few reasons. One of which has to do with the title “nevar” which is the Portuguese word for snow. A blizzard hit and I was laptop-less for a while, thankfully I was able to at least squeeze in a new years post. But now I’m back in full and hopefully getting back to posting regularly. This post somewhat mirrors a post I wrote on my Tumblr and I’d like to take this opportunity to direct you to my Tumblr if you’re into that sort of thing.
