^haha i didnt really like My Stage..but thats it...the rest are great...
her B-sides are more experimental, which may be better...but usally her b-sides have the same feel as the a-side...so im guessing Namida might be a sad ballad as well..

im really liking Megumi no Ame...anything with Strings is <3
and that shocking twist in key at the first

I like My Stage , in fact I think she's 1 of the very rare artistes that put out consistently good B-sides but then again it's just my own opinion

except in MnA's case , CAROLS doesn't have the whole strings group at the background ne

Megumi no Ame, while generic, isn't bad. It's a safe song imo. It's not hitting any new ground, and it's not pushing out something unfamiliar, but it's still pleasant to listen too and still has an emotional power to it. While it's nothing mind blowing like Ashita, or even RED CLIFF, it's not bad.

That being said, since Namida is a b-side, I expect to see something a little more daring since there isn't the risk of the single not selling well because the song is ill received.

Also, Megumi no Ame, especially in the verses, reminds me of one of her Chinese cover songs

Yes it really does. At least I thought of CAROLS alot of times during the PV.

Spoiler:
We had such a nice time. We started dating in t2m PV, took it slow you know, let our love grow. Then it got really serious in 2008. Then after AT2009 we moved in together. It was lovely. Then on AT2010 he asked me to marry him. He was such a sweet. And Ayu gave us our blessings. She was also such a sweet. Now me and Maro are such a sweets together. Aaaw, how time flies.

The new song is okay I suppose, I thought it would be a bit better Anyway I hope the b-side isn't better than the song it self.

Lovin' the new thread Cloud <3

Anywho, I changed my mind about the song....I LOVE it now. There's just not that much erhu in it, which I hate I expected to hear more erhu.

Wow, 9th thread. Coolio! Anyway, I really can't decide about Megumi no Ame. I think I need some more time with it.
