Amuro Namie's latest single offering comes in the form of a double A-side which features an edition including pv for both songs. When it comes to promoting their artists with punch and a sizeable budget Avex never skimps on production costs giving their artists a wonderful allure with each release.
Amurochan tops the Oricon charts once again with "WILD" / "Dr." taking the #1 spot along with impressive sales topping 75,000 in just its first week of release!
"WILD" hits with a sensational hip hop flavor full of sensuality as has been the choice of genre for much of her latter Avex releases till this point and is accompanied with a pv which matches or even possibly exceeds with mesmerizing and high impact visuals set in a futuristic stage. The track also is highlighted by electronic ovetones and deep r&b roots giving the listener an instantly encompassed groove. Tight dance choreography, striking outifts, an array of support and back up dancers all tied together with action movie like graphics which are absolutely amazing……add a perfect complimentary touch……speaking of Avex and their willingness to put forth such great efforts for their fans, "WILD" was truly given a budget worth its due! A very sexy track from Amuro Namie~!
"Dr." leans away from hip hop presenting itself as a rather unusual dance tune which moves between a constant driving rhythm to an almost dreamy like state. Inspired by Ravel's "Bolero", it really actually took me a few listens to really find an appreciation and liking for this track as opposed to "WILD" which was instantly engrossing. The pv also is a huge contrast as Amurochan is anime'd into a world of the "future" where an infected planet in need of hope awaits our heroine's blessed arrival amidst the likes of a nurturing mastermind, giant worm like things!!! (゜Д゜;) (seems that these "things" often find their way into Japan's anime world 😮 ), a distant cousin of Lord Vader's Death Star out in deep space XD and the promise of this story's continuation as indicated by the brief ending dialogue. And while this track may be a bit unusual at first…or at least it was for me in the beginning..(・_・)….the visuals of this episode of anime really works wonders here~.
Enjoy the time traveling beginnings of our heroine above all set in anime~.
Japan's busiest…..um "actor?" as Mr.Worm
seems to be in so so oh so many anime movies and series.
He appears in many different shades
but never fails to gross me out~!
