Tracklisting
1. Pray
2. ABOUT U
3. Lost my pieces (Melancholic guitar version)
4. Pray (original instrumental)

This is Tomoko Kawase’s 5th single as Tommy heavenly6 and it was released on July 5, 2006. The single reached #10 on the Oricon Weekly Charts and sold 31,282 copies. The title track was used as the 1st opening theme song for the anime Gintama.

I didn’t think Pray was as good as her last single I’m Gonna SCREAM+ but it’s still a fun, fast paced progressive rock song with nice riffs and a catchy chorus.

I actually liked the B-sides on this single a lot more. ABOUT U is a little slower but it has amazing pace and Tommy’s vocals are at their best. The chorus is great because the melody flows very well with the electric guitar riffs and everything seems to fit together.

The next track is the melancholic guitar version of Lost my pieces, a song from her eponymous debut album as Tommy heavenly6. I didn’t really like the original version because it sounded odd but this new version is definitely a major improvement. The chorus is the high point of the song because of the depressing lyrics and the addition of the ‘melancholic guitar’ adds even more.

Overall Rating 

3½ stars
