Tracklisting
1. Faith
2. Pureyes
3. Faith -Instrumental-
4. Pureyes -Instrumental-

This is Yuna Ito’s 2nd single and it was released on March 1, 2006. The single reached #6 on the Oricon Weekly Charts and sold 56,359 copies. The first track was used as the ending theme song for the drama UNFAIR.

Yuna Ito definitely had a lot to live up to after the huge success of ENDLESS STORY and this double A-side single is a nice follow-up to it. Faith differentiates itself from ENDLESS STORY by adding some R&B elements. The nice acoustic and string arrangement creates a very nice ambient feel for the song as well. I still think the song is a little lacking but it’s a good attempt at something new.

To be honest, Pureyes was the song I was waiting for. It’s upbeat and catchy, especially the English phrases of the chorus: What you gonna do? Touch me baby. Am I in love? Kiss me baby. The brass in the background is a nice touch and I find this song to be a little better than the previous track. I definitely like the direction Ito is now going with her music.

Overall Rating

4 stars
