~ARASHI 「Endless Game」

嵐 Endless Game

ARASHI Endless Game LE & RE CD singles

Arashi’s latest single’s title track “Endless Game” also stars as the theme of Sakurai Sho’s drama “Kazoku Game” which has a most outside the box storyline with a even more extreme and dramatic in ways lead character played by Sho~kun. Fittingly “Endless Game” is equally dramatic and in actual parallel to Sho~kun’s complex character as this song hits you in layers of intricate and momentum shifting musical passages along with a bridge which is stand alone amazing and even more so in the context of the overall song’s arrangement and ever shifty feeling. The limited edition includes an additional DVD containing the music video for “Endless Game” as well as its coupling with track “Magic Hour” which appears exclusive to this version while likewise the regular edition includes not one but two edition exclusive tracks with the songs “Intergalactic” and “Monokuro” (“Monochrome”) making getting both versions must haves for fans.

ARASHI’s “Endless Game” can be ordered @ Cdjapan (note: as of June 5th 4 pm HST one limited edition copy remains available for order)

ARASHI’S “Endless Game”  limited edition and regular editions can be ordered @HMV Japan

~ARASHI “Endless Game” (music video)~

The visuals of “Endless Game” are perfect for those with short attention span syndrome as it’s a wonderful collage of flash imagery and dramatic scenes which never stop for more than a moment to pause…(^q^)! Okay I’m kidding!! Seriously though I love the quick editing and non stop movements from scene to scene as the music video 100% lives up to the dramatic qualities of the song and btw the boys all look very very hot herein っo(*´∀`)o!

~ARASHI “Monokuro” (“Monochrome”) mp3~

While all three additional tracks are great in their own right, with “Magic Hour” for its poppy~folk arrangement and “Intergalactic” as the energized dance number, it’s really “Monokuro” which stands out by far the most. “Monokuro” is like this modern day trip back to a time caught somewhere between ragtime and the roaring twenties ♪♪, really give it a listen and with repeated listening you’ll really begin to take note of how ingenious this arrangement with all of its musical transitions truly is, and with that amazing kick of way back jazz its particularly outstanding.
