Who would have thought a song about blood type would be so funky?? Released as NEWS's 11th single (12th overall), '恋のABO' is a great single to get you in the mood for disco!! Clearly intended to reflect the disco scene of the 70s, the title song '恋のABO' [Koi no ABO/Love's ABO] is a funky disco tune that really gets stuck in your head. The song is very upbeat and will very easily make you want to dance. The song itself is actually about different blood types and whether they are compatible. Weird, ne? But in Japan a person's blood type can be used as a personality match like a star-sign is used in the west. Whatever it's about, '恋のABO' will definitely make you feel good. The second song on the album is a Latin inspired pop tune 'ラビリンス' [LABYRINTH]. This song seems more like a traditional love song with some great vocal work by the boys. A great follower to '恋のABO'. Next is the slower-paced also Latin inspired 'OPEN YOUR EYES'. This song is a good way to wind down after the upbeatness of '恋のABO' and 'ラビリンス'. The song uses a mix of Latin-pop, Western movie style music and pop synthesizers, which also makes it another disco-type song. The final song on the album is a live recording of the song 'Share', recorded during the boys' WINTER DIAMOND PARTY LIVE at Tokyo Dome. 'Share' is a soft pop tune featuring sections written by each member. It's a great way to complete the single. Overall '恋のABO' is a nice single to listen to when you're in the mood to dance. 9/10
