Wait for me there (4/10) I listened it for the first time and it gave me a very bad impression :S Now it's "ok" I guess... but still not my cup of tea. For me it's the worst song from the album, it shouldn't have been promoted with this one. Leaving you (6/10) At first this one also gave me a bad impression, but after many times listening to it, I can say that I like it ^^ It's growing on me day by day. I love the vocals, and also the maybe "sadness" feeling that the song gives to you. Do you know my heart? (8/10) When I heard the beggining I was like "umm... the same again?" but then when it started, and when I got to the chorus OMG!! It's amazing!! I love this change we talked about so many times >w< When I listened for the first time I thought "thanks god! some energy to the album!!!" It reminds me a bit of heavenly's beginning. Sad end to a fairy tale (7/10) I like it a lot too ^^ Specially the chorus and that guitar in the background! And also the chorus ("Why do you ever try to live a lie? It's so Sick") >W< It gave me a feeling of "stop being so hypocritical and be yourself", I want the translation for this one so bad!! Shut up (8/10) Fast rhythm! I love it!! It makes me wanna do head banging XDDD Flower crown (6.5/10) I was expecting a lot from the intro, but then when it started it decieved me a bit. It's ok but nothing out of place. Surely (8.5/10) The first thing I thought when it started was the same as sneaky!! This is so suitable for "THE WINTER ALBUM"!!! Maybe the chorus isn't as burigurish as the rest of the song, but really good anyway. Gonna change my way of life (7/10) I had this song in my head for a few days XDDD (imagine a girl in the street singing all loud "GONNA CHANGE MY WAY OF LIFEEEE!!!".. yes, that's me XDD). Reminds me of some heavenly song (probably from heavy starry heavenly) but don't know which one :S Playground (8.5/10) The same as with "gonna change my way of life", so catchy!! I love the guitar riffs, don't know why it makes me think about children games XD Things I can do (8/10) The song it's great!! And I love the fast chorus >w< !!! Make sure that I will sing this one when I have time XD You should live in the sunny light (10/10) OMG!! This song was A BIG SURPRISE!! For good, of course XD I love the vibrato thing that Dammyf6 mentioned, it's such a different register from what we are used to! It gives me a feeling of "I wish I could do something for you Tommy TT". It seems a really sad song, and it makes me think about a lot of things. I WANT A TRANSLATION!!! FINAL MARK (81.5/110) The final review to it all it's that I was being too negative about this album, and I thought I wouldn't like it at all, but it still has real good songs and it gives me a special vibe different from anything she's done before. As sneaky said, I think that she's very brave to release a kind of album like this, very different from what she's done before and that she seems to be very sure of what she wants to do and doesn't mind about what labels or anime fans would say. I'd say that the best sentence to describe it all is to say that this album is "a tribute to music and self-rewardness".

3rd album by Tommy heavenly6. 11 new tracks, no singles were released prior to this album. While many people have negative comments about this album, I absolutely love it. Sure, it's rather different from her first 2 albums, but that's a good thing. All artists need to evolve and change at some point, and this was her time. That's not to say her 4th album wont go back in the direction of her first 2 albums, but she wanted to try something new and for me it works. Favorite track on here are Flower Crown, Do You Know My Heart ?, Playground, Shut Up, Wait For Me There, and and Leaving You. If album #4 is similar to this, I'll love it. If it goes in the direction of the previous 2, I'll still love it.
Tommy Heavenly 6 - I Kill My Heart[Release Date: 2009.04.29] Well, with a cuppa tea in hand, Heavenly playing softly in the background and the keyboard at the ready, here goes. I will talk about the album later, but I will mention the DVD first as this needs to be mentioned. As most of you know the DVD comes with two songs, Wait For Me There & Leaving You; split across with a Heavenly/February version. I have to question Tommy's logic with this release, especially the reference to Tommy February, why? I say again, why? Why have Tommy February on the Heavenly DVD at all? Tommy February seems so out of place on this Heavenly DVD, she is singing a Heavenly song with a bunch of guys dressed as women. I always thought Tommy February was about innocence, happy songs, and catchy tunes. February would never be in this situation. I remember an interview with Tommy, she mentioned she felt Tommy February was losing her innocence, a reason why Tommy thought about dropping her February character. Since Strawberry Cream Pop Soda and with this DVD release what does Tommy expect. Tommy is putting her February persona in situations where she wouldn't be found singing. February wouldn't sing with a bunch of guys dressed as women, it would feel out of character. It worked well for 'Wait Till I Can Dream' because Tommy captured February's innocence through the looking glass within the video. The DVD feels cheesy/cheap throughout without proper thought and consideration for both of her characters. Tommy looks great as both February and Heavenly on the video, but this DVD is questionable to me. I say again, Why even include February in the first place on this Heavenly Album DVD? It appears to me to be an insult to February's Persona. Maybe it is a way of saying to the audience February is changing, maturing; but the purpose of both her characters was that they were different. In a way, the light and dark, innocence and corruption through the eyes of the world. For me, it is one of the worse DVD's I've seen, it does annoy me to see the way Heavenly & possibly February's character is moving/changing. I think this was purposely evident on February's Strawberry Cream Pop Soda track released recently. The track was ok, but the way it was portrayed wasn't, February in the foreground and men dressed as women in the background. I see February as like the innocence of a child whilst Heavenly is what happens to the corruption found in this world. Does this mean Heavenly is bad, no; it is only the result of the exposure of this world. Dark and Black, is in a way; two of the same, Heavenly is part of this and dresses accordingly. As for the album everything feels downtempo, dreary, more JPOP rather than JROCK. There is no spark, no energy or real justification for the change. Yes, Tommy is changing/evolving her music, but this feels more like a cross between the Brilliant Green & Tommy Heavenly, not really knowing where it belongs - down the middle somewhere. This can be readily seen through the likes of the songs such as 'Surely' and 'Do you Know My Heart'. Especially 'Surely' as it could easily have been mistaken for a Brilliant Green song, it does have a very similiar vibe. There has been some confusion on previous albums too, such as 'Ash Like Snow', which could have been mistaken for a Heavenly Song, and 'Hey My Friend' becoming a Brilliant Green track. Sometimes I feel Tommy should choose one or the other, but this would alienate most of her fans to drop one for the other. The energy, where has it gone. Listen to 'Pray' and 'Lucky Me', you can feel the energy, the vibrant contrast in style, delivered with drive and thought. 'Pray' especially, classic Heavenly in my honest opinion. Possibly Heavenly's best track to date. 'Playground', 'Shut Up' & 'Things I Can Do' all sound the same, with no real distinction between the tracks. 'Leaving You' I actually preferred over 'Wait For Me There'. 'Leaving You' does feel like a ballad, but is this what Heavenly is about? We know Tommy wants to change through the track 'Gonna Change My Way Of Life', but what exactly does she want to change, her persona's, Heavenly & February? The best track I felt was 'Sad End To A Fairy Tale', as it captured much more feeling than the rest of the tracks, maybe even a meaningful message to her fans. 'Flower Crown' I actually wanted to skip twice, very dreary. Finally 'You Should Live in the Sunny Light' I liked the lyrics, but the song I felt was lacking in most ways. Overall I felt both her previous albums hold up better, alot better with classics tracks like 'Lost in Pieces', 'I Fell in Love with you', 'Pray' and the like. I was disappointed in this release, not only for Heavenly but also for her Cameo February counterpart. This may seem harsh, but I would drop her Heavenly persona in favour of keeping the Brilliant Green alive. There seems to be an overlap with both persona's, Buri Guri/Heavenly; even though Heavenly is showing positive signs of maturity through her music. February may not have a deep character, but her music is different enough to be of value. If Heavenly is to succeed then Tommy needs to re-instate her JROCK status, as everything seemed to fit more perfectly and actually had the right amount of chemistry between all her musical contributions, be it The Brilliant Green, Tommy Heavenly/February with little deviation. -Summary- Everything feels 'All of a sudden', the changing of pace, the way Tommy released her last two tracks 'Papermoon' & 'Unlimited Sky' and then this which feels very different. Yes, there are influences of Heavenly, but it feels far away from what she once was. Recently YUI was critised for falling into the same old, same old.. but in the case of YUI, she is young and hasn't been in the music industry for long. They both have recently released there Greatest Hits. In contrast, YUI releases albums year upon year and sometimes everyone can fall into the trap of 'same old, same old', even Ayumi Hamasaki is trying to find her 'Next Level'. Tommy has evolved from the Brilliant Green, through February, and presently Heavenly and should be commended for trying something 'different'. I do not question Tommy's talent, only in some of her logic. If she is happy in what she is doing, then I hope this new release bodes well for her. Only time will tell if it was a decision worth following. It may cost her some of her original fans, but it may invigorate new ones too. A counter-balance, and one which will hopefully hold true for her. Looking to the future, it will be interesting to see which direction Tommy takes her Heavenly Persona, the same can be said for February too. I feel disappointed for Heavenly for the album, and annoyed at how February was used within the DVD. A real shame.
