Title: WeME!!!
Label: Rejet/Pitagoras Production
Release date: 18/01/2017
Genre: J-Pop

Tracklist:

1 - WeME!!!
2 - WeME!!! (Anime version)
3 - WeME!!! (off vocal)

Track analysis:

1 – WeME!!!

Already known by the fans of the anime, WeMe!!! is a jazzy mid-tempo pop song that strays a bit far from what the group has been doing for the last couple of years. Giving a “Masquerade” vibe right from the start, this song excels on making the listener interested. The funky bass and drums set the pace of the song, leading the way for the groovy guitar and upbeat piano melodies to pretty up the instrumental piece. The instrumental speeds up, presenting us an exciting chorus in which brass joins the already danceable song. Vocally, this song has left so much behind. While it’s true that everyone is singing comfortably and without any issues, it’s also true that this vocal performance is far from what the unit showcased before. In what was a solid and incredibly entertaining instrumental, it’s a bit frustrating that people get to listen to a an overly conscious and careful Marginal #4 instead of being the risk-taking group that has finally left a big slump behind.

Final rating: 4 stars
WeMe!!!!” is available for purchase on CDJAPAN for all overseas fans.
