Track analysis:

1 – Mr. Perfect 

Synths take the front line for this song as laidback guitar riffs make their way into the song. Despite what you might think from this early description, the synths don’t hinder the song in any way, it actually sounds great, not overwhelming at all as they are connected to the bass, adding a nice touch to the instrumental. Think of this as an alternative/electronic rock song, you’ll easily understand what I’m talking about without listening to the song.  The verses are rather quiet with the funky guitar riffs going in the background alongside the minimal bassline. As we approach the chorus, the splashy drums join in and Morikubo‘s vocals get increasingly powerful. When we reach the chorus you’re a bit underwhelmed, with the chorus sounding a bit weak in comparison with the verses. “Mr. Perfect” fails a bit to impress but it’s nothing critical.

Final rating:

Mr. Perfect” is available for purchase on CDJAPAN for all overseas fans.
