5. ボクらだけの歌

Regulus bring all their guns to this single. “Bokura Dake no Uta” is a acoustic pop song with a taste of spring on it. This song benefits from a bright but laidback instrumental that is rather simple in its composition, straying away from the overly cheesy bright pop song’s curse. Synths, acoustic guitars, session drums and bass make for the core of this song, plus a piano and electric guitar to give the final touches to it. Just like what happened with Rigel‘s single, Regulus are far from being on their comfort zone with this song and still managed to deliver something interesting enough in our opinion.

This time around the vocal performance is not on the level we anticipated. Yes, this unit has very steady vocals but this time around there are some parts in the vocals that were slightly manipulated which leaves us to think that either it was intentional, or the vocal performance wasn’t the expected for that part and it had to be tweaked in order to work well with the rest of the song. Either way, that is just a minor flaw we found when we were replaying the song for the 4th time. If you’re looking for a song to power your spring days then look no further.

Final rating:4.5 stars

Bokura Dake no Uta” is available for purchase on CDJAPAN for all overseas fans.
