“Gloria” – YUI

I'm pretty sure this is the closest we're going to get to seeing her smile.

Moody rawk star YUI is back after her wishy-washy double A-side “It’s All Too Much/Never Say Die!” I love this girl to death, but her image annoys the crapzorz out of me. It’s like “seriously! Stop brooding so much and smile, dang it!”

Track 1: Gloria- This song is so cute. I love the “ah ah ah ah ah aaaaaah” parts. YUI’s angelic voice works very nicely and the guitar is very pretty. Its a very pretty and inspirational winter song. I gotta say, I hate winter but I love winter-themed songs,

Track 2: Muffler- What is it with YUI and her B-sides? First we get “Sea” and now this! This song is perfectly cozy, and the guitar strangely reminds me of the kind of music they play on The Weather Channel when the Local Forecast comes on. If you have no clue what I’m talking about, forgive me! (covers head) This is a sweet song and a great complement to “Gloria.”

Track 3: It’s All Too Much (YUI Acoustic Version)- Personally, I found the original version of this song to be mediocre. This version is just a bit better, but still doesn’t evoke any kind of emotion in me.

(the single also contains an instrumental of “Gloria”)

In Conclusion: YUI forever! I think this single was a strong release. Not as strong as “Again” but I’m biased because of the Fullmetal tie-in, lol.

Reader Question!!!! What’s your favorite YUI song? Comment here!
