Following in the footsteps of her big sis, Watashi Iro and Bokura Style are indeed the same song…with different arrangements and lyrics, of course! Watashi Iro is the more mellow of the two tracks and is acoustic based. I thought the song was good but it definitely gets trumped by its counterpart Bokura Style. It pumps up the electric guitars and is much faster paced. I was loving the energy the track presented and I personally prefer it over Watashi Iro.
It really depends though. If you like calm and collected then Watashi Iro is for you. On the other hand, if you want something more exciting then check out Bokura Style.
The single includes a B-side too. Gerende ga Tokeruhodo Koishitai is kind of plain compared to the A-sides. However, I will say that it is better than most of the songs of this new era. A steady rock sound combined with equally steady vocals is always a good thing for misono. She’s been getting better ever since her Lum no Love Song cover.
Pros: Bokura Style is great! Have a listen.
Cons: Hmm…I don’t really have anything to say here. misono hasn’t been sucking lately.
BASICALLY…this was a solid single but enough of the “same song” gimmick, avex!
