The cover of the limited edition
Blue Daisy is the brilliant green’s 19th single and it was released on June 30, 2010. The single reached #20 on the Oricon Weekly Charts and sold 3,881 copies.
Tomoko looks cute. I don’t like other cover because it’s full of stranger bitches.

Like Do As Infinity and Every Little Thing before them, the brilliant green is officially now a duo. Guitarist Ryo Matsui left the band in May so Tomoko Kawase and Shunsaku Okuda are continuing on but I’m sure they’ll be fine as a duo since they’re MARRIED. XD
Focusing on the A-side, Blue Daisy is an uplifting song with big electric guitars and strings. The music has a more modern feel than their last single LIKE YESTERDAY and I thought it left a better impression. At almost six minutes long, I felt that the song dragged a little at certain parts but that’s not a big deal.
The first B-side is a cover of the 60s classic All Day And All Of The Night by The Kinks. Musically, this version is a little more hard-hitting than the original. However, Kawase’s vocals aren’t really suited for this song and she could have been more aggressive with her singing. Then there’s BLUE SUNRISE, a laid back acoustic rock track. It’s kind of plain but at least it sounds nice.
Pros: Blue Daisy is growing on me and I like it more than LIKE YESTERDAY.
Cons: The B-sides weren’t exactly to my liking.
BASICALLY…a slight downgrade from the last single. The A-side is great though!
