The full radio preview of Morning Musume’s 46th single titled Only You has been released.
I have to say that I was very surprised with the preview since it is very different from the live version, mainly because of all the sound effects added to it and the fact that even with the present radio rip, we can’t tell how many lines each member got.
The beginning of the song is a part we didn’t get to hear quite well in the concert rip which consists of a strong and heavy instrumental of electric guitar and synthesizer, which seems to me like if they are in a garage with all of the sounds. The chorus that follows is pretty similar to the one we got to hear since it only has Ai and Reina singing in it.
The verses that seemed weird in the concert rip may seem even weirder for some fans since they aren’t completely accorded with the beats in the instrumental and the lines of each member are accompanied with heavy drum beat and robotic sound effect which isn’t displeasing, but a big difference compared to the concert preview, since we get to hear many effects like heavy sounds or metallic intonations that sometimes cover the member’s voices.
I was kind of disappointed to see Gaki’s strong lines actually having a robot-feeling to them since it was a rare opportunity for her to show off her strong voice, but this will still be a great song in concerts where she and the other members will be able to pull off their singing skills.
Also, the music break at 4:05 seems to really fit the song since it gives it a some kind of fresh beat and feeling which we didn’t get to hear, and I have to say that I’m overall impressed with the song even though we still have to wait for the PV to see which lines each member got to sing.
Overall, I recommend everyone to listen to it a few times before judging and hopefully a PV preview will come out in the next few weeks.
The release date is set for 6/15.
