Tracklisting
1. One Room Disco (ワンルーム・ディスコ)
2. 23:30
3. One Room Disco -Original Instrumental-
4. 23:30 -Original Instrumental-

This is Perfume’s 9th major label single (14th overall) and it was released on March 25, 2009. The single reached #1 on the Oricon Weekly Charts and sold 88,075 copies.

I think One Room Disco is Perfume’s best A-side in recent memory. It has the “cute” factor of previous tracks but still delivers a good amount of aggressive synth and beats. It helps that the song is extremely catchy and I like the “deisuko deisuko” parts (they get stuck in my head from time to time lol). The chorus is also a fun highlight, especially near the end when there are cool drum beats. Overall, this is a great track.

However, the B-side is BORING. The girls should stick to electropop because 23:30 is a snoozefest. I mean, I sort of like the bossanova lounge club and bass sound that’s going on in the music, but it just doesn’t work out for a group like a Perfume. In layman’s terms, the vocals simply don’t match the atmosphere of the music. This song would probably be better if it was performed by someone else, but that’s just me.

Overall Rating 

3½ stars

  1. I agree. The A side is really nice.

  2. ya i wasn’t too found of the b-side… awesome A side though. word

  3. I don’t think One Room Disco is one of Perfumes best.
    I still like Dream Fighter and Perfumes signature Polyrhythm.
    But its still pretty good.

    The B-side is an absolute failure thoug

  4. I thought that this was one of Perfume’s best singles! Great review, keep up the great work!
