4. White Light [Instrumental]
5. Violet Sauce [Instrumental]

This is Namie Amuro’s 29th single and it was released on December 16, 2005. The single reached #7 on the Oricon Weekly Charts and sold 71,746 copies. The second track was used as the theme song for the Japanese release of the movie Sin City. There was supposed to be a third song on this single but it was shelved for unexplained reasons.

White Light is my first Namie Amuro song and I instantly liked it on the first listen. I love the opening beats and the entire R&B Christmas theme the song presents. Amuro’s vocals are very gentle and the music is relaxing. The song ends with the sound of jingle bells.

The next track, Violet Sauce, is completely different from the previous track. It combines R&B beats with some very slight electric guitar riffs. The bridge is simply amazing in my opinion and is the highlight of the song. The strangest thing about this song are the lyrics. What exactly IS the violet sauce and what do you dip in it? (LMAO)

The remix of the previous track, Violet Sauce (Anotha Recipe), is a strange twist to an already strange song. The music is toned down and Amuro’s vocals are just plain weird. She whispers during the verses and her vocals are more lower pitched in the chorus. The remix also features a cameo from Nao’ymt, the producer of all the songs on this single.

Overall Rating

4½ stars
