Release Date: November 12, 2008

lp1011914127vj8Tracklist:

1. Suna no Oshiro
2. skip turn step♪
3 Suna no Oshiro (instrumental ver.)
4. skip turn step♪ (instrumental ver.)
5. Suna no Oshiro ~orgel ver.~

Suna no Oshiro starts off with an ostinato solo in the cello, creating a deep sense of urgency before Wakeshima’s whispering voice creeps in. I think I can hear the violins and organ in the background too. The melody in the chorus is absolutely gorgeous though; it’s not as creepy as I thought it was before, but quite nice. I wish she’d use more vibrato on the cello though, just to add to the atmosphere a bit more. Wakeshima’s voice is not that strong here though, but the instrumentals and melody make up for it.

Wow…skip turn step♪, unlike the previous song, is quite uplifting, with the upper strings starting off the piece song (sorry, classical me talking there). This is a cute little song, something VERY not Wakeshima’s style, but pretty interesting. If I heard this randomly, I would think it was H!P or something. It’s very cutsey; not my type of song, but okay nonetheless. One more thing: guys probably wouldn’t karaoke this (with the ‘atashi’ and stuff XD).

Suna no Oshiro ~orgel ver.~ sounds like someone is winding up a music box, and has the melody of Suna no Oshiro in that kind of music box way. It would be cute, but it’s kind of creepy too (like those horror movies you see with the music box, and you know something bad is about to happen…*shivers*).

Overall Rating:
4/5

  1. This single was absolute love. ❤

    Ten times better than still doll, but that’s probably because I hated Kuroi Torikago… 😡

    She needs to keep this up.

    • I’m not usually a fan of creepy music XD.
