Tracklisting
1. Baby cruising Love
2. Macaroni (マカロニ)
3. Baby cruising Love (Instrumental)
4. Macaroni (Instrumental)

This is Perfume’s 6th major label single (11th overall) and it was released on January 16, 2008. The single reached #3 on the Oricon Weekly Charts and sold 65,297 copies.

The first track, Baby cruising Love, leans more towards mainstream pop while still having Perfume’s trademark computerized vocals. The electronic parts of the song are toned down and are mostly featured in the background through deep bass riffs and thumping beats. However, the piano arrangement is the most noticable aspect of the song and it has a prominent presence. Compared to Chocolate Disco and Polythythm, this song is a little slower paced.

Up next is a unique song from this group in terms of musical style. Devoid of the electronic pop that the girls normally do, Macaroni has an organic and jazzy sound from the drums and piano…until the end at least with some synth appears. There are still vocal manipulations during the chorus, but the verses are free of them. I thought this song was on the same level as Baby crusing Love; both songs were relaxing, had good rhythm, and had their catchy moments.

Overall Rating

4 stars

  1. I loved Macaroni.
    One of Perfumes better and more unique works.
    Although personally, I thought it was like a watered down version of Seventh Heaven.

  2. ^Actually, I take back that “watered” down comment.
    Both are equally good.
    XD
    I just enjoyed the piano in seventh heaven more.

  3. Baby cruising Love just got annoying with the vocal manipulations during the chorus… I can barely stand that song anymore.

    Macaroni was definitely good, though.
