This is rather quick. I just wonder if this single is a 'farewell song' for the old team formations. If so, then I'm predicting a soft ballad, but it could also go the way of an upbeat "strive for the future" tune as well. Whatever it may be, I'm glad, since the singles tend to feel a little old whenever Oricon week 2 comes around. In the case of Iwake, the election thing made it age even faster since so much focus was put on that element and thus the single itself.

LQ previews thanks to Ama @ S48:

River: http://www.twitter.com/?d=U8OUKJ70
Kimi no koto: http://www.twitter.com/?d=ABR59FDL

It's gonna be great to see River being performed.. the intro sounds pretty bombastic. However, don't really care about the rest of the song.

Undergirls ftw, I like their song a million times better.

edit: make that 10 million times better  :lol:

I love BOTH songs. The RIVER intro is that shit, IMO. The song changes dramatically after that but it's a pretty good song even though it doesn't sound like AKB. I'm lovong it, too much.

Kimi no Koto ga Suki dakara is AKB-ish! It's like listening Iiwake. And since I love Iiwake, I'm loving this song, too.


Ahhh. I feel good today, I hadn't loved a single like this since Oogoe. :wub:

River:
Holy shit! :shocked:

Hell must have frozen over since that's the first AKB related song I like lol. However, the song could be a minute shorter because it starts dragging after 3:40. Anyways River is still pretty awesome :thumbsup

Kimi no koto:
:yawn:

I've gotten used to River. I think it's ok, but I'm not sure if it'll catch on.

The outfits looks pretty sweet. This military base looks pretty boring.. there better be some explosions as well  :P

Who cares, it's AKB48 in military gear!  :w00t: And not faux-camo either, they got the vests and boots on and everything! AKB never fails to deliver in the PV department.

The song also is also really nice, what I expected out of them. The choral vocals in the chorus almost get me every time. (10nen and Namida Surprise were boring, though. Gah, those two songs made me miss gushing on Iiwake, which was back to awesome.) The difference from Seifuku and Keibetsu is that the arrangement less percussive, as they went for a more soaring sound than driving, as before. Still like it, though.

The song is really good. I liked it already before the quality rip, but now I like it even more (I miss the weird rap, though).
