      BEST -third universe- & Universe 4

      I have to admit, that I have never been a true fan of Koda. Most of the tracks I listened to before were quite ok but never made me buy a CD. Moreover being not into her hip-hop-songs, I prefer the cute pop ones. Thus my review might sometimes differ with the opinions and expectations of a wholehearted Koda fan. This time, having two albums for about the price of one, I just blindly ordered my copy. BEST -third universe- starts with some really nice pop-songs like "Koi no Tsubomi", "I'll be there" and "With your smile". "Yume no Uta" is a very cute ballad which unfortunately reminds me of "You are everthing" by the Stylistics, so even though the song has serious lyrics and is really touching I have to smile a bit everytime I listen to it - sorry for that!!! "Ningyohime" is the most outstanding song on the album since it has a very hardrockish sound which is not what I would expect on a koda CD but definitely increases the musical range of this album positively. Unfortunately there are two downsides on this album. First of all, while "FREAKY", "TABOO" and "LAST ANGEL" work for me because of their catchy refrains, I really dislike "But" and "That Ain't Cool" which I have to skip as fast as possible and second, the more songs are played the more boring the album gets. The further songs did not disappoint me badly, it's just that I even cannot remember having listened to them. Since there are still some nice songs I would rate this one 3 of 5. After listening to the Best-Of I expected not much from the the full-length album "Universe", which I thought to be not anything better. How wrong I was!! "Universe" is a great album that sounds so much more melodic to me than BEST -third universe-. "Can We Go Back" is another rock song but in fact not as heavy as "Ningyohime" and thus not that unexpected. The sound of "SUPERSTAR" even has some country style influences while the guitar during the following tracks is increasingly accompanied by synthesizer sounds leading to "Work It Out!" a really cool discoesque song. "No way", "Stay" and "Alive" are pretty ballads but are not as touching as "Yume no Uta" or her classic "You". Therefore I think the real strength of this album are the uptempo songs which makes "Work It Out!" and "ECSTASY" my favorite tracks on this CD. The duet with misono is alright, even though the beginning is annoying to me and the refrain sounds a bit hasty. Overall I think both range and significance of instruments has increased a lot, being woven deeper into the songs, which is a great improvement to me. Moreover listening to the whole album was a lot more stirring than BEST -third universe- was and I didn't get bored at all. Thus I would rate "Universe" 4 of 5 which makes it 3.5 of 5 altogether but having two booklets and a cute cover finally leaves 4 of 5.
