Monthly Music Review : May 2010

Long time no see guys. First I want to apologize for the lack of blog entry I made this month. University entrance tests and stuffs keep me busy these days. But obviously I'm not planning to stop blogging. I will still update my blog at least 2-3 times a month.

Okay enough for chitchat. It's been a while since my last Monthly Music Review. So because of that, this time I will make it a loooooooooooooooooong post to cover the music single I miss. So what are we waiting for? Let's rock!

My Soul, Your Beats! & Brave Song
Lia & Aoi Tada
They say save the best for the last. But I'l gotta say number one is for the winner. Yeah right, Angel Beats OP+ED is a win in my book. Nothing can top both the great songs by Lia and Aoi Tada. The OP "My Soul, Your Beats!" is like a Lia trademark song. The piano intro is awesome. Even this song can be compared with "Toki wo Kizamu Uta" in term of piano tune.
The ED is slightly slower tempo than the OP but that's natural. Aoi Tada's Brave Song is really really a relaxing song so I usually listening to it before go to sleep. Basically this single is a must listen. I give my two thumbs for this single.

Crow Song
Girls Dead Monster
Hey, it's GalDeMo! What more can I say? They already surpassed Houkago Tea Time as my favorite anime band besides DMC and ENOZ.

Thousand Enemies
Girls Dead Monster
Second single of GalDeMo and this time they used a new vocalist. LiSA is indeed better than the first vocalist (I forgot her name) and I'm glad they will use LiSA for the rest of GalDeMo singles.

Houkago Tea Time
Hi there, Chipmunks Tea Time! C'mon, what's with that squeaky voice and fast paced song? This is not HTT I used to like! If there ever be a band clash-up between HTT and GDM, I'll place my bet for GDM. HTT can suck my dick. Oh I forgot to say, the second track is better than the first. I'm starting to think that Genius...!_ should be the OP instead.

Houkago Tea Time
Actually I rank this a much lower than Don't Say Lazy but at least it's higher than GO! GO! MANIAC. I'm lying if I say I don't enjoy the song, but it's just nothing special in the song. I wanna know what the composer of K-ON!! is smoking while he works. He's really lost his touch in making a song. Fortunately, a winking Mio is fine too.

All I know about Shoujo Byo is that they're a (former?) doujin music artist. Nevertheless, the song is nice to listen.
