    Angela Aki 3rd Album - Answer 4

    I would say that the song that caught my attention the most in this release was her version of Bob Dylan's classic "Knockin' on Heaven's Door" (yes, it was not composed by GnR ok?). Even though most of the melody remained quite similar to the original, her version have some extra conventions that made it incredibly nice to hear and blended awesomely. It's hard to say that this song only makes this CD worth the buy, but in the limit one could say that. This also includes "Tegami ~Haikei Jugo no Kimi e~" theme song to the film "Heaven's Door" which had Tomoya Nagase among the stars. Undoubtedly this CD will please every Angela Aki's fans for sure and I dare to say that this could also be a good start for someone who still know none of her work.

    The right ANSWER! 4

    This album took a couple of months for me to fully like. And I had to really give it a proper listen just to realize how good it is. One of the best tracks is surely the single that managed to sell over 200 000 copies - "手紙?拝啓 十五の君へ?" it's a beautiful piano song with a faster pace. Even though the album has a solid share of upbeat songs such as "Fighter" and "Reflection", I would say the most impressive part of it are the ballads - "Our Story", "Somebody Stop Me" and "We're All Alone" previously released on Angela Aki's indie mini album titled "ONE". The cover of Bob Dylan's "Knockin' On Heaven's Door" was also nicely done and fits the whole mood of the album really well. On the other hand "Requiem" is more than ten minutes long and I rarely find I can listen to it, it's not that it's bad, but it simply bores me a bit as it's too long. The only thing this album really lacks is diversity, but Angela Aki is really good at what she does, so there are simply times the good formula should not change!
