melody. – Love Story

September 26, 2007 at 9:16 PM | Posted in melody. | 1 Comment

1. Love Story
2. BoRn 2 luv U / melody. ♥ m-flo
3. Lovin’ U -Deckstream Remix-
4. Love Story (instrumental)

This is melody.’s 10th single it was released on May 30, 2007. The single reached #21 on the Oricon Weekly Charts and sold 10,922 copies.

I have always been a fan of melody.’s ballads because she performs them so well and Love Story just might be her best. The song is just plain gorgeous thanks to a simple, yet effective piano and string arrangement. melody.’s vocals are fantastic and get more emotional further into the song.

The next track is the Japanese version of m-flo’s STUCK IN YOUR LOVE (from their COSMICOLOR album) retitled BoRn 2 luv U. This is a pretty good track because VERBAL’s rapping isn’t as annoying and the mix of synth and percussion beats is very nice.

Track 3 is a jazz remix of Lovin’ U. The remix’s use of additional piano and brass is surprisingly good and they blend really well melody.’s vocals. Another addition to the remix is a short rap session by the duo little funk. All in all, this was not a bad remix at all compared to melody.’s previous ones.

Overall Rating

4 stars
