Right now I am trying my best to do some PV Reviews, right before December hits and has me focus on all things Christmassy and twinkly, and before essay deadlines overwhelm me. I may have to plan a little bit before such essays force themselves upon my plate, but for now, let's enjoy the little bit of free time I have.
After the heartbreak and turmoil of BiSH's Orchestra, why don't we take a look at a slice of visual deliciousness, but without the plot lines and linear story structures? It's time for some eye candy, and it all lies in that little bit of shoulder in its bare naked glory.
Given the roller coaster ride of meh Morning Musume have been riding lately, I won't lie and say I was anticipating this release. More than anything, I've become expectant of terribly recycled songs, sub-par videos and a forced-upon coolness that really does not suit the group in any way. So, with the dawn of the Sexy Cat, Maria center and a third song I really did not give two figs about to remember in title or look, I didn't expect a lot. Heyll, from the first shitty preview of Sou ja nai, I didn't anticipate liking this single much at all, because... well, shitty concert rips. You can't ever trust 'em.
Like anything, though, I made sure to wait until the full-fat radio rip was leaked to cast my judgement, and whn the PV's for all respective songs came out, I was indeed slightly impressed. Firstly, by how good the music videos were in terms of budget, and second, how good the MV's were in terms of overall look and feel; they look good, and aside from the awkwardness of Sexy Cat and the shit acting in Sou ja nai, there is still something good to take from the member performance in each.
And then, there is Mukidashi de Mukiatte, the song I didn't even think to bother with or care for. Oh, how wrong I was,because of them all, this is the best. It's the saving grace. It's the least awkward. It's basically the song, and though all have their merits, it's the one that has both sound and image in perfect harmony with one another, and the one that stands out simply for how damn awesome it is.
Good grief, I'm drooling like a fan girl. Better wipe that shit up, and start pic spamming you all to high heavens, because when you're just about to give up on MM... well, they drop this like its hot. Are you ready to face it and bare yourself to a cool side of Morning Musume that might just actually work?
Let's go confront them, now!
