thoughts. B.
I always come out of a listening to a Misia album wondering if I liked it or not. Misia has a really incredible an unique voice in I love how versatile her music is; she hasn’t changed up. Misia has the same style now that she did when she first debuted and I love that, because it’s her. However, sometimes it makes for a draining listen as you know that the song is good but it doesn’t really pop out at you or stick. LOVE IS THE MESSAGE is her sophomore album, an though a little better than her debut (in my opinion), it suffers from the same thing Mother, Father, Brother, Sister did. Good songs that once they end, you’re struggling to remember them. Of course tracks like BELIEVE and One! are memorable, because they aren’t slow-paced or ballad oriented like the others. Which is another thing I noticed with Misia, she will have a couple up-tempo, maybe mid-tempo tracks and the rest are ballads or slow-songs. I’m not mad at that, yet it does make for a tepid listen. The only track that really stands out is it’s just love, possibly my favorite Misia song. The rest are OK in well sung, with tracks like Sweetness and My Beloved standing out from the rest. It’s not a bad album by any means, but I’m always undecided when it comes to her albums.

One thought on “Misia – LOVE IS THE MESSAGE

  1. Thank you for reviewing this album I never was too much it the only song I enjoyed on it was wasurani hibi. And you are right about misia not changing her style much you might see a pop song once in a while come out but mostly slow ballads which is what I enjoy the most from her its sad that a lot of her deeper songs with the most touching messages are the most under rated (*caugh caugh* life in harmony) I wish the same for some of my writings that pretty much were inspired heavily from a lot of her work.
