Finally, some music reviews! And my favourite CPop Band, no less. Well, it's a diasppointment. Lyrics-wise, new albums don't have lyrics you can search on google. I tried. But believe me, FIR's lyrics are not the problem. Not the voice either, it's perfectly fine. It's their music. Finally, FIR released their album. They've been in hiatus for 2 years. If I thought the rest would make their dying music any better, I'm wrong. Ian (I from FIR) had been under immense pressure, so that's why this music, sucks, huh? Without his genius song-writing, this music here is tired.
1. Find my way 3/5 (i'm trying to be kind) Some rocky song trying to be like 无限, but epic fail. Lol, it was really boring and nothing we've never heard before. The chorus also sounds wearily like 无限. Snore, next.
2. I am here 2/5 Well, the music starts out all nice. A ballad! And here I was, thinking it would be better. This song's chorus sounds... weird. That's the only reason why it's 2/5.
3.向日葵盛开的夏天 4/5 This is a nice, but SLOW ballad. Only nice song here.
4. 纪念日 4/5 It starts out with some nice funky guitars. Oh, so it's those kind of songs. Rocky, hyper FIR. Not my fav--Faye sounds better in sad, ballad songs. But hey, it's quite catchy. A breathless Faye sings in an upbeat mood. Quite nice.
5. 冲浪季节 1/5 As the name suggests, it's another rocky song. Starts off with some dialogue. But yeeurgh, Faye sings in an extremely cutesy, irritating voice.
6. 红潮 2/5 Some nice piano, violin music starts. Yay, a ballad! Let's hope it lives up to expectations. Well, the chorus sounds a bit weird... so there's still not a 5 star, Cult-worship status-worthy song yet by track 6, huh? FIR, what happened? Your 1st album, was it really just a one-hit wonder?
7. 荊棘里的花 1/5 I am boycotting this song for FIR PLAGIARISED THE CHORUS FROM "A SUMMER'S DAY", SOUNDTRACK TO THE MOVIE "SPIRITED AWAY"!! CLICK http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ss2B5I9kSfc to listen, at 1.30 min. WALAO, they cheat.
8. 让我们一起微笑吧 2/5 The namesake of this album, and first single. Is it a rocky song? Well no, some mellow guitar sounds. Faye sounds quite pleasant. Oh, so it's another ballad? But it's extremely boring. I'm disappointed. Although 茶靡时代 was also without a chorus, it has its unique hook--the wailing violin. This? The bomping guitar barely catches my attention.
9. 猫头鹰的梦 2/5 Some cool guitar hooks, haha, a rock song. One thing about FIR is that they're utterly predictable from their music, unlike Ayumi or Hitomi Shimatani. That's why I like JPop>CPop. Some pop song. What does that have to do about an owl's dream?
10. We are 2/5 3rd single. Is there really only one 5-star song on this whole album that TOOK 2 LONG YEARS to make?? It's a ballad, again. Not again like I'm sick, but where did the cool rock songs like 光芒, Fly Away or Neverland go? There is a lot of female rapping by Faye.
11. Hero 2/5 It started out grand and epic. Unfortunately, the ballad was flat and lifeless.
Overall, major disappointment. FIR had gone downhill even more, which was--unbelievable. Only one hit song? If this goes on I find no reason to listen to their music. Yes, like DAI, FIR without Ian will be NOTHING. That's why I don't review the current DAI, either. Overall rating: 25/11=2.27 Recommended tracks: 向日葵盛开的夏天, 纪念日
