ayaka x Kobukuro – Anata to

Release Date: September 24, 2008

Tracklist:

1. Anata to
2. Anata to (Instrumental ver.)

Oh-my-god, yay! Another ayaka and Kobukuro collaboration. I heard this single was released due to fan (and I guess popular) demand. Well, whatever the reason was, I’m happy they’re singing together again. Their vocals just mix and harmonize so nicely together.

Unlike the previous collaboration WINDING ROAD, which was a soulful harmonic, almost choirlike song, Anata to is a mid-tempo ballad with a darker tone to it. The piano introduction is so pretty, in my opnion. I love how it is more like a duet than just harmoization (like the last one). The melody in this song is quite beautiful, especially in the climax of the chorus. It still has the vibe of the previous collaboration, but with its own shine too.

Overall Rating:
5/5

ayaka x Kobukuro – WINDING ROAD

Release Date: February 28, 2007

Tracklist:

1. WINDING ROAD
2. WINDING ROAD (Instrumental)

I love how Kobukuro and ayaka harmonize so nicely in WINDING ROAD. The a Capella section at the beginning is nicely done too; it leaves a lasting impression. The range that both ayaka and Kobukuro have are amazing, and their voices compliment each other so nicely. In terms of melody, it is definately unique.

Overall Rating:
5/5

First real day of school…
