1. Finding My Road
2. fragile
3. My Dear
4. Finding My Road -SiZK “Water Drop Mix”-

This is melody.’s 9th single and it was released on February 2, 2007. The single reached #13 on the Oricon Weekly Charts and sold 17,594 copies.

Finding My Road is melody.’s first single to feature an electronic dance sound. The upbeat semi-R&B / pop of her previous works is absent in this song. The strong vocals mix very well with the blaring synth and I liked the high energy of this song.

The first B-side is fragile, a sort of melancholy song but with a thumping beat. The song starts off a little boring because of melody.’s low pitched vocals but it picks during the chorus. Her vocals become significantly better during the chorus as well.

The next B-side is the cute and poppish My Dear. This song sounds like many of her previous works which is by no means a bad thing, but it’s certainly not as good as Finding My Road. I was hoping that the B-sides would feature a sound similar to it.

The final track on the single is an obnoxious remix of Finding My Road. The vocal manipulations of melody.’s voice bothered me and the additional muffled vocals are really annoying. Plus, the way the remix ends is dumb too.

Overall Rating

4 stars
