Ohohoho~ I bring you Ultimate Diamond!!! Lol, it’s quite early that it got leaked though, and of course, leave it to me for sharing it to y’all X3…
Tracklist w/ Short Impressions:
1. MARIA & JOKER – it has a very Bond-esque feel and Nana-sama totally pulls off the hawt~ factor of the song. Great way to start off the album. I hope there will be a PV for this one ^___^!!!
2. Etsuraku Camellia – This song is a total stand-out in this album and it’s FIIIIEEEERCE!!!!!. It totally has a huge rockin’ impact and the PV is hawtness too. And of course, I’m all lesbo only for Nana-sama XD.
3. PERFECT SMILE – It has a very bright atmosphere, and just like the title, it really makes me smile 😀
4. Trickster – Of course, this song ROCKS OUT LOUD!!! Not as much as Etsuraku Camellia though, but Trickster will be a different one ^^. I loved this song back then ^^.
5. Mr. Bunny! – CUTE TITLE!!!! And a cute song as well ^^. It’s very fun but there’s so much Engrish in it though, but I don’t care~ XD
6. Chinmoku no Jitsu – The song has a totally great start and Nana-sama sings in a lower pitch, and overall this song is epic!!! I totally love the instruments and its overall combination (AND EXPLOSIONS!!!… wait are those really explosions?)
7. Brand New Tops – It’s just an “ok” song. Light, fluffy and poppy ^^. Regular Nana-sama song ^^.
8. Shounen – It’s also another “ok” song. Nothing much to say, butit’s quite forgettable and such, but still fun since Nana-sama makes everything awesome ^___^.
9. Gimmick Game – It had leaked before, so yeah… pretty much a very fun track and I love the energy of the song ^^. Kinda reminds me of Astrogation. I love the chorus btw.
10. Dancing in the velvet moon – If I remember correctly, this song is from Rosario to Vampire, right? It’s overall really elegant and seductive but Nana-sama totally pulls it off! Love it ^^.
11. ray of change – I feel bad for this song, because it’s sandwiched between the uber-hawt Dancing in the velvet moon and the ZOMGAWESOME Shinai, so it becomes really forgettable. Lol.
12. Shinai – OMG this is like, one of my favorite Nana Mizuki songs ever because its really amazing and vulnerable. Just ah–maze–iiingg–ly puhrrr–fect! Brava!!! …I would have wished more of an acoustic version though. And oh, let’s all forget about that shitty anime called White Album, shall we?
13. Aoki Hikari no Hate -ULTIMATE MODE- – Oooh~ I really like this track ^^. Not that much of an “ultimate” change though, but it’s still awesome ^^.
14. Astrogation – This song just rocks. I just love it to bits, even way before ^__^, from the vocals to the beat… it’s just perfection~
15. Yume no Tsuzuki – ..or “Continuation of Dream”. Nana-sama wrote this song by herself and this just proves how awesome she is!!! A really great and warm ballad ^^. Such a mellow way to end this very awesome album T^T.
To sum it all up:
HELL YEAH~ I LOVE ALL TRACKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Best album of the year so far imo!!! OMG this is definitely a must-have for any Nana Mizuki fan. There are lots of old promotional songs though, and I wish they could have added in Black Diamond or Heartful Song (both from Shugo Chara’s Utau), but anyway, it still does not disappoint ^^. OMG this album is just too awesome for words!!!
