      Great single!! 5

      Alive is such a gorgeous classical ballad. It's so beautiful and unique from all her others she's released over the years yet is sadly terribly underrated. I don't think it's even been performed live at any of her concerts. Physical thing is completely different. It's a fast paced sexy song that's a great naughty jam. The DVD includes the MVs for both tracks yet the UNIVERSE album, which these two songs were included on, didn't include the gorgeous MV for the song Alive, which is probably the biggest reason to own this single aside from the beautiful cover and cool additional instrumentals. Highly Recommended!!

      The perfect Mix 5

      Alive is a perfect balled with a magical feeling to it. I love this song a lot and I love listening to it. Because of the amazing melody I also love listening to the instrumental version of the Song. Physical Thing is an up-tempo song. It has an amazing beat and is great for dancing to. So both song's are really amazing, that's why I love this single. The dvd that comes with the cd is like an extra bonus since the cd itself would be worth the buy. On the dvd you can find the music videos of both songs and a trailer for her Trick tour. If you like her than this cd is a must-have and even if not it is definitly worth a try!

      I want to be ALIVE to listen to the sequel... 5

      This new single from Koda Kumi was a real surprise. The first track "Alive" is absolutely beautiful. It looks like an opera and we would like to fly in the sky. "Physical thing", in the contrary, is a very strong but a very good rock-song. All Kumi's fans may love these songs !

      Kumi gets physical 0

      Do you like Kumi singing ballads? Than this single is definitely a have-to-buy for you! No, you prefer Kumi’s hot upbeat songs? Well, no problem, this single delivers that too! Alive is based on Handel's " Lascia ch'io Pianga” and it’s for sure one of Kumi’s best ballads lately. Songs that sample classical music always have that little special feeling that you won’t find in common pop songs - and Alive is no exception. Alive has a beautiful melody and Kumi’s vocals match the tune perfectly. Physical Thing is exactly what you can expect of a title like this: A hot, dancy song! If you liked TABOO and Ecstasy, you will love this song for sure as well. It is very catchy and Kumi handles the song as usual very well. Last but not least, the cd + dvd version comes with videos for both songs. Alive is a more simple video with little action but very dreamy with beautiful pictures and a very pretty Kumi. Physical Thing on the other hand shows us a wild Kumi who breaks the rules once again.
