Amuro Namie’s latest maxi~single release “TSUKI” kicks off her 2014 and is presented as a TRIPLE A side with not just the title track but rather all three songs being featured equally as each has been given the keys to a full production of just simply richly mesmerizing visuals in three incredible music videos!!

“TSUKI” is available in a CD + DVD version as well as a stand alone CD version and while both offer a large B2 sized poster extra (see photo, right) for all first pressings, for an additional 600 yen, getting the CD + DVD version is the no brainer one to get!

Imagine Amurochan inhabiting a giant seasonal snow globe which melts away into spring in grand fashion, and here the song “TSUKI” is equally as enchanting in melody and rhythm as Amurochan’s powerful vocals soar and glide throughout a most memorable power~ballad.

Now imagine Amurochan meets the world of Narnia with a mystical twist of magical sorcery, a mysterious aura complete with enchanted environments and dark cloaked choreography, and while sure this one’s very high on CGs in its overall makeup the visuals for “Neonlight Lipstick” are nothing short of  being purely electric and extraordinary. The vast array of seamlessly and quickly ever altering visuals work perfectly hand in hand with the high up-tempo dance vibe of “Neonlight Lipstick’s” highly electro~pop groove! And while this track may not be as readily catchy I imagine as its predecessor “TSUKI”, nonetheless its one that’ll surely grow on you in time, so in the meantime allow the mysticism of the mv to carry you away~.

And taking the final bows for this maxi is the electro~R&B infused hyper track “Ballerina” and simply put, an all electronically CG’d grid of Amurochan has never looked so seXy good! The track itself while up-tempo and easily dance inviting in a most club~like aura may fair somewhat in comparison to her two prior counterparts, and yet stay for the visual stimulation you must!

    ‘Tsuki’ is certainly beautifully sung, and a fine song. Loved the pv for ‘Neonlight Lipstick’, but found the vocaliod-heavy singing a little hard going! The same for ‘Ballerina’, although the mix was impressive, withso much going on in it. A lovely and well-illustrated post, thank you!

    • U~n “Tsuki” is definitely the stand out here and it’s always been puzzling as to why they sometimes overproduce Amuro’s vocals on some songs as she as we both know very well doesn’t need any vocal effects or doubling ever. The electo~vocals can work sometimes for me and it didn’t dawn on me as there really is a Hatsune Miku vibe going on here for the latter two songs =D. Still the video productions and the just out of this world creativity that’s happening in these videos is off the charts mesmerizing and YES especially with “Neonlight Lipstick” which is wicked fun in a fantasy world at its best, so so imaginative!!
