1. Tsukiakari (ツキアカリ)
2. dreams be

This is Rie fu’s 7th single and it was released on May 25, 2007. The single reached #35 on the Oricon Weekly Charts and sold 4,516 copies. The title track as used as the first ending theme song for the anime DARKER THAN BLACK -Kuro no Keiyakusha-.

I was VERY impressed with Tsukiakari. It’s a gentle song that features one of Rie fu’s best musical compositions to date. The underlying enka string arrangement is unique compared to her past songs as well. Rie fu’s vocals are at their best especially when she reaches the high notes during the chorus and the bridge.

Rie fu never fails to amaze me with her English songs. The lyrics of dreams be are poetic and not to mention mysterious. The music is upbeat and has rhythmic percussion and light electric guitar. I thought the bridge was great when the guitar riffs became stronger and more aggressive. I really hope that she makes more rockish songs like this in the future because she can really dish them out if she wanted to.

Overall Rating

5 stars
