Rie fu – I Wanna Go To A Place…

1. I Wanna Go To A Place…
2. They Always Talk About
3. I So Wanted (English Version)

This is Rie fu’s 3rd single and it was released on April 27, 2005. The single reached #5 on the Oricon Weekly Charts and sold 65,917 copies. The title track was used as the 3rd ending theme for the anime Gundam Seed Destiny. I also want to mention that Rie fu did the artwork for the cover.

I Wanna Go To A Place… is a very calm and relaxing song. The song opens with a very beautiful string ensemble with some added acoustic guitar. Basically, the first half of the song is in English, then it changes to Japanese at the second verses, then Rie fu mixes both languages near the end. The song gradually speeds up during the chorus too.

The B-side, They Always Talk About, starts off pretty boring, but it gets a LOT better at the chorus. The electric guitars make a great and much needed addition to the song.

The final track is an English version of I So Wanted, a song from her debut album. I love the calm intro of this song and Rie fu’s vocals are very serene too. The lyrics are beautiful, but a little sad as well. The BGM is the same as the Japanese version, unlike the English version of decay, which featured some nice tweaking that made the English version better.

Overall Rating 

3½ stars
