Review | MEZZO “Forever Note”

MEZZO continue to explore pop-rock for their outing with Forever Note.

Title: Forever Note
Label: Lantis 
Release date: 31/10/2019 
Genre: Ballad

Tracklist:

1- Forever Note

Forever Note is yet another new iteration for this duo. Acoustic guitars, a laidback piano melody, simple snare drums, and a noticeable bass line give life to this song.

Although the verses are lackluster, the chorus is exciting and instantly draws your attention in. A nice touch in the reverbed guitar riffs with a blue-grass touch.

The way the reverb was worked made the riffs sound distant and dreamy. The guitar solo is unexpectedly good albeit brief.

On the vocal end, Atsushi Abe and KENN are trailing safe territory and, as a result, they sing their hearts out.

It seems, especially after Kaleidoscope and now with Forever Note, that MEZZO is starting from straying away from ballads and embarking on a pop-rock journey.

Of course, this can change with any upcoming release but, so far, it is diluting the duo’s quality and originality within the IDOLiSH7 franchise.

Regardless, as a standalone entry, this is a solid track, a clear improvement from the predictable Kaleidoscope.


This song is available for streaming via Spotify.

REVIEW OVERVIEW

Forever Note

SUMMARY

Forever Note is yet another new iteration for MEZZO. Pop-rock still played an important role in their sound however, it was done in a less predictable and boring fashion than its predecessor, Kaleidoscope.
