Okui Masami [INSANITY] (39th Single)

December 16, 2008

INSANITY
TOTAL ECLIPSE

Okui Masami’s 39th single starts off with the a-side INSANITY. Its pretty up-beat and energetic in a mild and serious way. The arrangement is a bit typical, it has a funny twinkling sound in the background that I didn’t quite get. It sounds like something you’d hear as a music clip in a fighting game. Okui’s vocals were good, went well with the song, and stayed consistent, but after awhile her tones got a bit annoying. Its not anything different or new, but it is an OK song.

The second track on the single is the b-side TOTAL ECLIPSE. I liked this a lot more than the a-side. The arrangement had a very dark feel about it, and was pretty edgy, I liked it. Okui’s vocals were really good in this and a lot more engaging than they were in the a-side. I also really liked how she seemed to get into the song. This was more a-side material if you ask me, because its a lot more memorable.

-GRADE: B+
Rating: ** stars

Masami Okui’s 36th single INSANITY was all right, but nothing really special. INSANITY was a nice song, but it just gets old and head-ache inducing, really fast. TOTAL ECLIPSE was a lot better, and sounded more a-side than INSANITY did.

    Yay! I’m so glad, she really has some good music. You should give Megumi Hayashibara a listen as well, they’re both pretty similar. I’m more of a Megumi fan though! I love your blog, keep up the good work!❤
