1. CHOIR JAIL
My first thoughts on this song was that it definitely doesn’t sound like DAYS of DASH. CHOIR JAIL has a gothic sort of theme to it with very dark vocals to add at the start, but then it eventually tones down a bit. It starts off with some sort of organ instrument that I’m not familiar with then the vocals starts to join in followed by the drums and some electric guitars too. It’s got an odd beat in my opinion, but it really works for this song. The rhythm of the song has a really good tempo to it too!
I really enjoyed this so and I also think that it’s a great song, but it’s not as good as DAYS of DASH in my opinion.
2. Zanzou Mirai
When I first heard this song, I thought it was exactly the same, just slower… It has a few differences and played at a different speed, but it’s essentially the same song. This version of the song has a much more sad tone to it, but it still has a gothic ring to it. The vocals seem to be just a little bit nicer, but it’s still a fierce song like CHOIR JAIL. The song even includes a tune similar to a music box which I really like about this song.
All in all, I think this is a good single but not as good as the DAYS of DASH single.I’m sure a lot of people would disagree with me on this though, Moira being one of those people. Out of these two songs, I prefer CHOIR JAIL over Zanzou Mirai.
