hikarikirameku: (Happy Rin)
OK, so I'm waiting on my copies of KAT-TUN's Unlock single, so I haven't watched PVs yet, but I managed to find the songs. Just got done listening to them now.

Thoughts & Ranking (Favorite vs. least)

JET - IS SO FREAKING COOL, OMG!!! CRANK THE BASS AND VOLUME UP, NO FUCKS GIVEN! This song will be AMAZING at the tour if they perform it (please...please lord let them perform it). Hard to catch Maru's beatboxing part, but you can hear it if you pay attention. This song will probably be on heavy repeat the next week or more, lol.

Greatest Journey - SO CATCHY! Such a fun song! Been looking forward to this one for a while. It's a pity they're only just now releasing it when the show's getting cancelled. T-T (Granted, it's entirely Taguchi's fault, otherwise I'm sure they'd have had more time). Looking forward to seeing the PV. Saw the previews and it looks so silly and fun.

UNLOCK - The A-side ranking third, lol. It's not a bad song. Very KAT-TUN and matches the mood of the Kameneko drama. It's just...JET hit so much harder and pretty much got all my attention, lol. I'm sure I'll be listening to this one quite a bit too.

Ame ni Saku Ai, Yoru ni Naki Ai - This is more generic Johnny's style, but KAT-TUN's been doing songs like this as B-sides more often, so I've gotten used to it. At least this one's decent. It might grow on me later, and if they perform it at the live, it seems like a good opportunity to see some nice dance moves.

HONESTY - Token ballad. It's not that I particularly dislike the ballads, but I have to be in the mood for them because otherwise they can be boring. I was meh towards Star from the Come Here album, and now it's a song I'm pretty fond of, so I reserve judgement on this one...but for now it doesn't stand out at all, lol.

At any rate, I like all the songs, granted, some more than others, but still. That makes me really happy seeing as this will be the last KAT-TUN single we'll be seeing for a long time (provided they keep their promise and re-group at some point). Might also be the last new song we get for a while unless they put a bonus song on the new album (which I am honestly hoping for). They usually put at least one bonus song on the RE version albums, so who knows? If they do, I hope it's a 3-nin song. I' like at least one proper songs with the new group make-up to send us off with, and make it "official" to speak...although I guess the tour DVD will also do that just as well. At any rate, this is it for 4-nin KAT-TUN.'s so depressing saying that, but we have to move on. I'll be going into the next live tour bias-less. Might just stay that way, cause TBH, it's REALLY hard to pick a new favorite from the remaining three, cause I like them all about the same for different reasons. XD
