YUI – LOVE & TRUTH
LOVE & TRUTH is YUI‘s 4th single to be released in 2007 and her 10th single overall. It will be released on September 26th along with BoA‘s LOVE LETTER. Predictions are that YUI will be competing with BoA & ABC for topping the Oricon Charts, and will most likely get it. Let’s see if it deserves to get that huge attention!
LOVE & TRUTH is a SWEEPING Ballad track! The mix of Violin and Guitar sounds in the song makes a great effect, especially during the beautiful Chorus & the Fantastic Bridge. Her vocals are at their best during the Chorus. To be honest, the song did nothing to me when I first heard it but, after 2-3 listens or so… the song got stuck in my mind. I think this is YUI’s best ballad and my favorite song from her after CHE.R.RY 😀 The song was used for the Japanese movie Closed Note starring the great young actress Sawajiri Erika.
The B-Side, JAM, is a typical YUI song. Probably like most of the songs in her 2nd Album, though it doesn’t necessarily mean a bad thing. I find the song less memorable than LOVE & TRUTH , it’s more Up-Beat and I thought that the Chorus is the best part of it, kinda catchy!
LOVE & TRUTH is way better than the Boring My Generation/Understand, it’s a Great Fall single.
The leading song is just one of the best songs of this year! I’m really Loving the single! Good Job YUI 😀
