Ok was finally able to get the digital copy, and holy wow I am not sure if this is just first listen excitement, but I am really enjoying this album. Both songs with features and Anemone are my favorites for now. I do agree RED is so different that anything she has done before.

Honestly I think that is why I like this album so much. It is full of songs that aren’t copy paste from her past works. Of course there are a handful, but it isn’t like the stretch from KINGDOM to Walk of My Life where basically any of those songs are interchangeable. This album is oddly cohesive as well, which has never been a feature in any of Kuu’s albums. So far I am impressed.

Only negative is I do wish she used another song than Sure Shot as the final push as that is just too same to everything else she has put out and there are plenty of other songs that would do a better job standing out.

The worst songs are the singles lol (Except for 100 no Kodokutachi eh)

The new songs are amazing, RED and GOOD TIMES are my favorites right now ♡

I share same opinion with you guys

Didn’t really like SUMMER OF 21 songs so I was not really confident about the album.
After hearing heart, I’m pleased to hear the album goes on the same direction than 4 MORE and 100 no Kodokutachi e that I loved. It’s refreshing and different from her music from the past 10 years.
The flow is great and even summer songs are good fitting in it. My fav are Anemone and GOOD TIME (so glad both ladies finally have a feat together, their styles and voices matched so well together).
Not mentioning the covers are probably her prettiest from the last decade. Good surprise

Bow Wow sounds GREAT!

Sure shot PV is very comical & entertaining

I like it that it has elements from some of Kuu's past PVs like show girl & Wicked Girls

I don't know how I feel towards the song yet :c & some of the competitors' names in the Sure shot PV , the nicknames are hilarious

Running Chicken Man ? LOL

@Gustavopc LOL , I think Great K is Kenji ? xD

OMG, I was expecting another green screen MV but glad they gave us more than that! So fun and she looks GORGEOUS, it has a lot of replay value! And I'm sure GREAT K is her son ahahaha He's even credited as GREAT K in the credits, maybe to hide his real identity?

And heart is a very good album overall, I'm really enjoying it and I think I can say that I like it a lot more than (re)CORD and angeL+monsteR!

I'm in love with the album, RED and Outta my control are my favorites.

And the music video for Sure shot is pure fun, even though this is definitely my least favorite song haha.

Btw, I made a simple 15s spot with the covers to share in my instagram stories to help spread the word about the album. If anyone want to use it too, it's here. I'm attaching this link for the streaming services with the story: https://li.sten.to/kodakumiheart

Ok after several plays I really love heart
I could only do without Atlas. Even the 2 first singles are okay at the end of the album.

So glad and proud that girl is still able to please me after 18 years of fandom!

So, a quick review from me on each track, cause I like doing these to make me see better how I fell about the album:

Spoiler:

Bow Wow is AMAZING, the energy in the track is so strong, and the way she's singing so full of confidence and even some sass (lippy much?), it's such a great way to open the album. She needs to give this song a powerful performance, be it on the upcoming tour or on another one, but this is a BANGER that needs some attention.
Sure shot is okay. It's a more mature Dangerous/WATCH OUT kind of song, Kenji finally found a balance between chaos and music in this one The video made me like it a bit more, but tbh it's my least favorite from the new tracks. Still a good one, way above the average of 2017~2020 material.
Atlas would be my least fav if it weren't for that spin at the end, I loved that transition. Gives me Tigarah vibes but with a bit of Diplo/Major Lazer idk hahahaha Also hope this one gets to be performed, it deserves a funk carioca choreo sooo bad.
GOOD TIME is another highlight to me. The 2000s vibes around made me fall in love with it at first listen, and it has been so long I was hoping for such a fun dynamic collab from Kumi, even more when you think how long it has been since she collabed with another woman. And it even happened to be AI!! Literal dream coming true!
Outta my control sounds a biiit dated, but it's so smooth and well built that in the end it didn't even bother me. I was on the fence because of the instagram preview, but as a whole the song is spetacular. OZI is a great addition, really loved it.
anemone is also a great track, I love the instrumental here. Really curious to read the translated lyrics. Kenji did a fantastic job with his compositions on this album btw. And to think it's been 10 years since his first work for Kumi (All for you), wow what a milestone.
100 no kodoku-tachi e is her best ballad in years, top 5 from her career to me. Only complain is the mastering when the second chorus kicks in, she needs to perform it at the next tour cause of the band, pretty sure it'll improve the experience.
to be free is meh. Nice but too b-side-ish
RED was the biggest surprise to me, wasn't expecting Maria Kumi Gonzales to hit so hard with full force on this album. Wish it had a video like 4 MORE, would have been a way better match.
4 MORE is also okay, it gets a bit better in the middle of the album. But it misses an energy peak to me idk
The other two tracks are the weakest in the album, but they work well in the tracklist and close the album in a good way. Cheers.


Amazing how this album turned out to be so cohesive. Hope she keeps on this route for her next albums cause I am living for it.
