BLESSING -Album ver.-
For Ayaka Hirahara’s sophomore album to be called The Voice, there was a lack of it on here. If I dare to keep repeating myself, I’m not saying it’s a bad album, because it isn’t. It just doesn’t do much for me. I felt like I remembered the songs more on her debut, in which with this one only a few stuck with me after a listen and I still had to go back an re-listen to them. Ayaka’s voice is really nice as usual, but the songs are pretty safe and that’s unfortunate because she’s capable of much more hard hitting tracks a la Jupiter. Her debut didn’t do it for me either, but the songs were better and I think she had like two straight instrumentals!
