“…Suki×××” / 0ji Mae no Tsunderella ~Piano Ver.~ (「・・・好き×××」/0時前のツンデレラ ～Piano Ver.～) is misono’s 16th single and it was released on May 5, 2010. The single reached #15 on the Oricon Weekly Charts and sold 6,661 copies.

Did you know that this is her 6th double A-side single in a row? That’s OVERKILL. LOL
Don’t mind my rambling because “…Suki×××” is pretty good. This song is ferocious and features a really aggressive arrangement (possibly the strongest I’ve heard from her). The electric guitars and drums are rampant but luckily misono’s vocals aren’t. She isn’t all over the place or assaulting my ears with piercing shrieks and shouting. Even during the loud chorus, her voice remains on-key.
I always approach misono’s ballads with caution. The piano version of 0ji Mae no Tsunderella starts off decently but becomes messy when the chorus arrives. She does not sound good when she sings those high notes. I’ve heard better from her so I wasn’t very pleased (Shuuten ~Kimi no Ude no Naka~ and “Me” were the best examples of slower ballad-like songs from this era). Maybe a new version of this song will be on her new album?
Since the fanclub version of the single has never surfaced, I won’t be able to talk about the 2 extra tracks exclusive to it. Sorry. =(
Pros: After some more listens, I have concluded that “…Suki×××” is awesome.
Cons: I’m on the fence with 0ji Mae no Tsunderella.
BASICALLY…this wasn’t as good as the last single but misono’s still doing quite well.
