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!

  1. I think Blue Daisy was just too long for an ADD whore like me. :P
    I still love the title and I’m really sad that the group is just down to hubby and waifu. Oh well. Awesome review and I totally agree with ya!

  2. strange bitches LMAO, funny i loved the single and even though the song was a bit long i liked it too much to get bored

  3. thanks for the review! I love brilliant green, i forgot about them for a while though. She starts to sound a bit whiney in Blue Daisy though
