The songs in this cd are so beautiful, i love Kokoro no senshi and the cover for "Eyes on me" is so nice. It's totally different from Faye Wong, and it makes us see the potential of Angela Aki's voice. The DVD contains nice pvs. A must have!

This is Angela Aki's 2nd Single. I was lucky enough to grab the CD+DVD version which is simply awsome, it features the PV for "Kokoro no Senshi" which is the title track, it's a very powerful track, you can totally hear her soul crying out. "Sora wa Itsumo Naiteiru" with it's child-like music is a treat. "TODAY" is a half-Japanese half-English cover of the Smashing Pumpkins, and "EYES ON ME" is a great cover of a FF song which was originally sang by a chinese singer and Aki makes it her own. HIGHLY RECOMENDED!!
I think this is probably the weakest single, but that doesn't mean it's sub-par. As a whole, I think that it still ranks among the top of my list. Kokoro No Senshi - features the same strong vocals and passionate music, but something about it lacks the "umph" i've heard in her other releases. I can't seem to explain it, but I can feel it. Technically, this track lives up to the reputation set forth from her "HOME" single. Sora wa Itsumo Naiteiru - although this song would hold up as being a single by itself, it is a welcome b-side. It's upbeat, although i think the lyrics don't really sketch an over positive image. (i think, it's been a while since i heard it). I nice break from the very dramatic "Kokoro no Seshi". TODAY - the biggest shocker. I like this version. I didn't recognize it at first, but once I did, i relived the days when I was really into the Smashing Pumpkins. A good cover of the original. Eyes on Me - As a fan favorite from Final Fantasy VIII, I never really like the original. Angela Aki makes the song tolerable, but doesn't make the song great. There's no hope for saving this song from the depths of mediocrity.
para ser honestos solo compre este disco por Eyes On ME y realmente valio la pena es una cancion hermosa
If you haven't heard of Angela Aki, you soon will. This abundantly talented Japanese-American singer and songwriter has successfully managed to redefine the boundaries of Japanese popular music, as experienced in this powerful new single. The limited edition DVD it includes compliments the song with a musical video featuring a visual feast of colors and effects. I was completely unprepared for the quality and class of this piece. Do not hesitate to purchase this item today if you haven't already.
