(C75) KOTOKO – Restoration -Chinmoku no Sora- (BALDR SKY Theme Song)

KOTOKO – Restoration -Chinmoku no Sora-

BALDR SKY Theme Song

Restoration -Chinmoku no Sora-

Download here

or

Here for Indonesian Local Mirror

it’s released on the same day as bumpy-Jumpy! and the front line covers, but it’s uploaded late…

ow, and sorry for no scans. the scans make the file 50MB larger and i won’t be able to upload it fast. if you want the scans then please download it via somewhere else.

Track List:

1. Restoration -Chinmoku no Sora-

2. Restoration -Chinmoku no Sora- (Instrumental)

okay… since it only contains THOSE 2 items, so i won’t have a long review.

let’s start the review then.

yeah… since this is BALDR series, C.G mix is behind the composition/arrangement again, just like ‘Face of Fact’ back then 😀

and since this is C.G mix then much less the song would sound similar.

i don’t know whether it’s only me or what, but ‘Restoration’ sounds TOO MUCH like ‘Face of Fact’. the differents are only in the lyrics and the melody.

but well, KOTOKO did a good job here anyway. at least her voice is powerful again.

well, not much too say. honestly, this song really gave me a deja vu of listening to ‘Face of fact’ at first. but it’s a good song for KOTOKO since she didn’t get to do this kind of song lately  😀

    The song was rather generic and C.G mix didn’t even bother to be as creative as ever. Well I’m not saying the song was something horrible but the outcome for the song was rather expected — there’s no thrill already.

    “The song was rather generic and C.G mix didn’t even bother to be as creative as ever. Well I’m not saying the song was something horrible but the outcome for the song was rather expected — there’s no thrill already.”

    Well, aren’t most of KOTOKO’s songs like that lately ??

    “Well, aren’t most of KOTOKO’s songs like that lately ??”

    Correct again. To tell you the truth, Mami Kawada’s carrying the big ol’ I’ve Sound as of mid to late 2008 after KILL and U Make Ai Dream’s downfall and failure to convince their (I’ve) market that it was all worth it to buy. Even Special Life! was despicable. -_-a

    And I’m not biasing with Kawada (even if I want to since she’s my favorite I’ve utahime) but if you notice her gross sales, they’re much higher than MELL’s, Eiko-sensei’s and most especially Kaorin’s.

    KOTOKO was the big one last year with her Hayate no Gotoku!, Shichiten Hakki Shijou Shugi, and this year’s BLAZE.

    Well yeah, I’m not blaming them. *glaring at Geneon for their poor promotions*

  7. January 6, 2009 at 1:28 AM

    *ohh about my last comment, I was talking about YEAR 2008. Sorry, I lost track of the time again it’s already 2009!! ~\(_ _;)/~ *head desks*

  8. January 6, 2009 at 11:29 AM

    *lol* it’s ok ^^;;

    well it’s another case for Kaorin since they haven’t given her any new singles to begin with -_-a same as Eiko for 2008. and KOTOKO.. should i say 2008 was her downfall after successful year in 2007 ?? and then MELL. she could sell better if they promote her album/singles better.

    and yeah… Mami, our favorite uta-hime. she had real good time in 2008, and even in 2009, she’s the first to release a single, ‘masterpiece’ while MELL’s ‘RIDEBACK’ will be on March. it seems that they put too much weight on Mami’s shoulder since the other’s sales went downfall -_-a

    “well it’s another case for Kaorin since they haven’t given her any new singles to begin with -_-a same as Eiko for 2008.”

    Well Eiko-sensei did release a single & an album but I can’t take its measly sales… Its sales didn’t reach 10,000. Maybe I’m more particular with the sales since you can apprehend that the old time buyers of I’ve products didn’t like the songs but yeah I really didn’t like almost all of the songs in “Hikari Nadeshiko”. They’re all dedicated to the insomniacs, I should say (except for Naraku no Hana, of course).

    WHEEL OF FORTUNE 7-week sales – 7,783
    Hikari Nadeshiko 4-week sales – 7,333

    ugh, really can’t take the sales.. ><

    KOTOKO’s downfall started after her BLAZE single. Well compared to “Special Life!” even if they both garnered #13 in Oricon weekly, their first week sales have a rather big gap

    BLAZE 1st week sales – 15,169
    Special Life 1st week sales – 9,299

    BLAZE is 5,870 higher than the latter. Even U Make Ai Dream was a flop at #46 (2,975 first week sales).

    What I hate about it is that she’s still not making any effort to produce her 4th album or whatever singles best colection album. It’s already 2 years since she last released an album for pitt’s sake. =.=’

    Continuation…

    But if you look at Mami’s performance as of late, her SAVIA managed to reach almost 15,000 copies (accdg to Oricon Yearly Top 1000 Charts) and it got #608, 13 positions lower than MELLSCOPE (#595) which has a small gap but the quality of the former was MUCH MUCH more feasible and not to mention, a lot of possibilities were opened on this album (like TAKANAKAZAKI, C.G mix w/ Takeshi Ozaki plus more Shakugan no Shana tie-ins and her very first non-anime tie-in).

    Then if you include the sales for PSI-missing and KILL, the former was already x5/x6 ahead since KILL only charted for 2 weeks (3,403 copies) while PSI-missing is still charting this week (17,409 copies for this year but has a total of 18,581 copies including its charting this year 2009) and include its 8,182 sales of JOINT this year (since it accumulated 28,390 copies for year 2007 but incurred a total of 36,572 on 2008).

    So, in short, I’d like to prove that Kawada is profitable this year — actually if only they’d give Kawada more chance to release, she could’ve equalled KOTOKO’s profitablity last 2008* but even if it was not done, Kawada was still the 2nd profitable of them all.**

    * 65,336 sales (singles/albums)
    ** 40,458 sales (singles/albums)

    yeah i’m sorry cuz i forgot that Shimamiya-sensei did have ‘Hikarinadeshiko’ and ‘WHEEL of Fortune’ for 2008. i just remembered it right after i submitted the post =.=;;

    but still, yes, just like what you show. her sales were simply no good to be compare to the others.

    “What I hate about it is that she’s still not making any effort to produce her 4th album or whatever singles best colection album. It’s already 2 years since she last released an album for pitt’s sake. =.=’”

    agree with you, fred. she has release TOO MUCH singles with NO album. ‘BLAZE’, ‘Sociometry’, ‘Real Onigokko’ and ‘Siren’ definitely need an album. not underestimating ‘U Make Ai Dream’, but somehow those 4 songs made ‘U Make Ai Dream’ nothing. Even to be compared to ‘BLAZE’.
