Trick! or treat?

27 Jan

XD lol dorky title but I like it. Here today we have Koda Kumi’s new album Trick. OK I have to admit at 1st I taught this album was going to flop and be so horrible, I was so wrong. What gave me this impression was all the promo releases for it. At 1st glance to me the only song that appealed to me was TABOO, but looking at the other tracklist I got the impression “am I going to like this album, the tracklist seems kinda sucky and bleh”. That would be the last time I judge an album by the song titles.

Trick CD+DVD Cover, Kuu has to be a FF6 Fan to dress up as Kefka XD

  1. Introduction for Trick
  2. Taboo*
  3. Show Girl
  4. Your Love
  5. Stay with Me*
  6. This Is Not a Love Song
  7. Driving
  8. Bling Bling Bling Feat. AK-69
  9. That Ain’t Cool Feat. Fergie*
  10. Hurry Up!
  11. Moon Crying*
  12. Just The Way You Are
  13. Joyful
  14. Ai No Kotoba ( 愛のことば; Words of Love)
  15. Venus (English Version) (CD+2DVD Limited Edition Bonus Track)

* A-side tracks

Trick is composed of 10 all new track with the backup off 4 A-side singles. Overall there was really no need for A side backups (except Taboo it needed to be in here, cause taboo owns) because most of the new tracks were great on their own.

Ok rundown of the tracks

  1. Introduction for Trick – Awesome intro, will be great when performed live.
  2. Taboo* – Great, this is still one of my favorite tracks. Plus I can still remember Koda on a toilet OHHH YEA
  3. Show Girl – as the promo song for the album its great. it adds the direction the album was going in.
  4. Your Love – ok Ballad, its ok but I don’t like much of Koda’s ballads.
  5. Stay with Me*- another ballad, and was an A-side ballad. Pretty much this is like a moon crying part 2.
  6. This Is Not a Love Song – THIS IS NOT A LOVE SONG, but its damn good!! IMO this is the best track on the album.
  7. Driving – Driving is also another great song, it has a type of poppy punk rock beat to it that makes it good.
  8. Bling Bling Bling Feat. AK-69 – LOL this song is a joke really you can skip it if you want but its pretty stupid LOL
  9. That Ain’t Cool Feat. Fergie* – I don’t know why people didnt like this song, I like it but when it comes to Koda rapping she should not, lol thats a no no.
  10. Hurry Up! – this one is a very energetic song, kuu gives off a playful and sexy flirty type off tone in this one. Still its a great song.
  11. Moon Crying* – ok this one is another ballad but this is a nice ballad, I can deal with this one but overall its the best ballad in the album.
  12. Just The Way You Are – Generic.. Boring… that’s all XD
  13. Joyful – Uhh its a bit tooo Joyful XD XD but every Kuu album has to have one of those really happy quirky songs in it and this is it.
  14. Ai No Kotoba ( 愛のことば; Words of Love) – another ballad, its almost like moon crying in a way but its passable I guess, just my opinion.
  15. Venus – LOL to be honest i can really only makes out the I’m your Venus im your fire your desire. LOL the rest is just ENGRISH to its best.

Even though I didn’t like some tracks, I would say this is still a great album and if you notice most of the tracks I didn’t like are her ballads. XD Want it? I know you do HAHAHAHA!!! XD XD XD
