I got my CD from FedEx today! I'm listening to it right now as I'm typing. It's awesome!
"Yume Ni Mukatte" is a pretty fast, catchy pop song guaranteed to get you moving. There' s a guitar solo too! I think Ayami, the leader, has some solo lines. I'm not too sure about the other girls, but they may have some solo lines too. I'm still not an expert on these girls.
"Hello! IVY" is next, and this one is fast too. There's another guitar solo, and if I didn't hear young girls singing the vocals, I'd classify this song as hard rock! It's probably my favorite song on the CD.
"School Days" (also the name of a Guardians 4 song) is the final vocal track, which starts off slow. After 46 seconds it revs up as another fast song. I guess these girls don't believe in being slow for too long. Keep up the energy, girls! It's a decent sounding toe-tapper.
Now, what I didn't know was going to happen was, someone uploaded this CD and the Twinklestars CD, "Dear Mr. Socrates" to the tracker yesterday. Some very nice girl living in Tokyo, who so far hasn't posted on this thread. I sent her a PM hoping she'd respond back, but so far she hasn't, perhaps because she's busy. I didn't download the Sakura Gakuin CD since I wanted to wait until I got the real thing delivered to my door, but I did download "Dear Mr. Socrates". Thank you for uploading these, as I am a poor seeder, who can't upload and seed my own torrents. (Ask the people on the Momoiro Clover thread about this.) I do have an account with Megaupload, and I was going to surprise everyone by trying to upload the CD there, but I guess there's no point now.
My CD came with a collector's card, but it wasn't a card I was hoping for! I got Suzuka. I was hoping for Ayaka or Hinata. Anyone wanna trade?
The booklet is 28 pages! It has the lyrics in Japanese, pix of the girls with stats, and lots of other pix too. There are some pix of Ayaka and Raura that just tell me that these girls' faces were born to be photographed! There's a pic of Ayaka sitting in a pretty pose that reveals her (super)model background.....this girl is classy!
Lastly, I just want to say, please support these girls! They need it!
