Track analysis:

1 – KISSから創造るBig Bang

A dirty synth lead makes way for this exciting but short song. Guitar riffs quickly draw us into the song as the funky bass and snary drums make a statement. For those that pay extra attention to every single detail in a song this one is a treat for you. This song is a clear mix between the styles of each group. Powerful drums and guitars from Lagrange Point and Marginal #4 and the synths and danceable touch to the chorus from Unicorn Jr.. The mix might sound chaotic on paper but as you listen to the song it actually sounds incredibly well.

On the vocal department this song is all kinds of awesome, considering that we have a total of 9 people featured and things could get easily overcrowded.

The verses follow the structure – Marginal #4 -> Lagrange Point -> Unicorn Jr. , it’s simple and effective, also easy for people to tell apart some members that have rather similar voice tones.

As everyone already knows, all these three groups have gifted singers in their lineups. Given the diversity in tones, there are certain types of singers paired up in the chorus. So it’s just as normal to find Sawashiro, Toyonaga and Masuda paired up for one part of the chorus as it is to find Suzuki, Aoi and KENN together. Genki and Someya as the unique tones are often blended with any of the combinations (there are a lot) within this song. Because of that, the chorus is actually split into three different parts that pack different types of delivery and power.

Surprisingly Toyonaga, KENN, Suzuki, Takahashi and Genki were the ones that stood out the most in this collaboration. Aoi, Someya, Sawashiro and Masuda blended perfectly in this song which is usually a good thing. But taking into account that this is sang by 9 people it didn’t favor them at all. If not for their solo parts, they would go unnoticed on this song.

As a whole KISSから創造るBig Bang is an addictive song that passes by insanely fast. The vocal performance is stellar and the instrumental certainly doesn’t fall short.

Final rating: 

Kiss kara Tsukuru Big Bang” is available for purchase on CDJAPAN for all overseas fans.
