My CD came in the mail today! THANK YOU VERY MANY RITHY! <3
I wish I had a camera or scanner so I can post pretty-pretty pictures of the CD. That means only one thing! Time to search the net for some pictures! =D
I'm a great pirate! umm ... I guess that only applies to downloading? o.O
Album art to distract you:
|2. Pourriture noble|
|3. ショコラ (Sweet version) |
|4. ショコラ (Kayaless version)|
Truthfully, I thought this single was going to suck. After seeing that video clip of the music video I thought, "Oh gawd, what the hell did I just make Rithy get me for one of my birthday/christmas/birthday/christams? I want to exchange it for something else!" Chocolat did NOT rock my boat when I first heard it in the video. The prettiness of the video did redem the song though, because it made me watch that video over and over. I guess what also helped the song was a whole weekend of listening to Caramelldansen and Schnuffle Bunny. Those two songs, mostly Caramelldansen, put me in the mood for happy-happy-electropop. For me, Chocolat was one of those songs that has to grow on you; now I'm obsessed with the song.
Pourriture noble was my favorite song before the CD arrived. For me, this song was the highlight of the single and I thought it was going to be the only good song -- this was when I was in my hating Chocolat phase. Now, I don't like it so much, it just seems waaaaay out of place. There's too much contrast between Chocolat and Pourriture noble.
I think it would have sounded less out of place if it was placed after Chocolat (Sweet Version).
Confirmed, Pourriture noble sounds MUCH better when placed after the sweet version. Why didn't they release it like this?! ;o; Having it after Chocolat (Sweet Version) gives you time to get off the happy-high from Chocolat. The Sweet Version is much more calm and the few seconds of silence in the beginning of Pourriture noble helps to break the contrast from Chocolat and it leads to a smoother transition. From now on I'm listening to the CD like this! It's MUCH MUCH MUCH more enjoyable. I like both songs equally now!
I absolutely hated Chocolat (Sweet Version). Why? The singing, enough said. Breathy I'm-singing-waaaay-out-of-my-range-but-
m-failing vocals are soooo not ftw, in fact, they're DO NOT WANT! I'm a fan of the music though! I really love the music of the Sweet Version but the bad vocals beat down music. If you noticed, I said that I hated this version, PAST TENSE! Hearing it over and over has helped me to tune out the vocals and I can say that I like this song now. Truthfully, the vocals grew on me; I hate them less but I still think they're bad. If they made a Kayaless version of this I'd be all over it.
Chocolat (Kayaless Version), LIES! It's not really Kayaless, it's a karaoke track. Unless ... that's not Kaya's voice that's being masked, but I doubt that. I like the regular version more just because of the, "Meeeelt my heeeeaaaaart." It's still fun to listen to though! Yeeeaaaaah, I don't have much to say about this song ... I guess that's a good thing?
tl;dr OMFG CHOCOLAT! *bounces around*
I IZ SATISFYED WIF CD Meeeeelt my heeeeeaaaaart
~~ Chocolat has definitely melted my heart, I love it now. <3
