Aya Matsuura – Chocolate Damashii

March 1, 2009 at 9:03 AM | Posted in Aya Matsuura | 2 Comments

1. Chocolate Damashii (チョコレート魂)
2. Gatsun (ガツン)
3. Chocolate Damashii (Instrumental)

This is Aya Matsuura’s 21st single and it was released on February 11, 2009. The single reached #19 on the Oricon Weekly Charts and sold 4,795 copies.

Described as a “Valentine’s Day gift”, Chocolate Damashii is Aya Matsuura’s first upbeat A-side in a long time. I actually think that this is a pretty good pop song and I’m quite fond of it now. The music does have a cute and overly sweet atmosphere to it, but it doesn’t go overboard with its instruments so I liked that aspect of the song as well. With her current vocals, Matsuura sings pretty well and the lyrics are catchy, especially that infectious “fu fu fu fu” part.

The B-side is pretty similar to Chocolate Damashii in that it features an upbeat sound with a mixture of cute synth and percussion. Gatsun is nice but it doesn’t offer any variety since it is pretty much a continuation of the A-side. At least Matsuura’s vocals are good though.

Overall Rating 

3½ stars

  1. I like how her music is different than UK’s and America’s music. She also sings very nice.

  2. Aya-chan is so talented, she even does Hikki’s songs really well
