Just like with all of my reviews, I'm late with this one too. This was a very nice album. Now, my favorite "non-single" song on this cd is definitely Remedy. It reminds me of her Grapefruit/Dive days. Seems the song would fit there, and I always enjoyed the songs from that particular era of hers. Another one that stood out, that I really enjoyed, was Shitsuren Cafe. Now that reminded me of something that would've been out maybe during her Platinum time. Peanuts was really nice too. Either way, my two favorite songs on this entire album, were definitely Remedy and Guitar Hiki ni Naritai na. After those, Get No Satisfaction!, Kazemidori, Shitsuren Cafe and Peanuts. Coming closely behind that, would probably be Sonic Boom! and the rest. Anyone who is a fan of Maaya works, would definitely benefit getting this cd. All the songs were nice and balanced and fit well together. Maaya's vocals were as nice as ever, and the compositions and arrangement were very pleasing. ^_^
I think I've heard Maaya's voice for the first time on one of Yoko Kanno's soundtracks. Then I've bought my first Maaya's original album "Shonen Alice" conisdered by me as one of my favourites. She is such an amazing artist, with lovely, beautiful voice. When "Kazeyomi" was announced to be released in January I've immediately pre-ordered special edition. I was expecting another journey to Maaya's world. And I was not disappointed. "Kazeyomi" contains some of the best Maaya's works: "AO NO ETHER", "KAZAMIDORI" or "GUITER HIKI NI NARITAINA" are beautiful songs you actually can't stop playing. It also contains "Vento" and "Colours" , in my opinion, the most beautiful songs Maaya's ever recorded so far. Hopefully "Colours" will be released as single one day as this song must be heard. Just listen to her stunning voice, beautiful lyrics and that delicate guitar... It's a magical song. Usually I listen to very heavy rock music, but on Maaya's records I've found peace and calm. Maaya's voice makes my days better and makes me happier person.
