can’t believe it’s leaked this early… probably even far earlier than Mami Kawada’s ‘masterpiece’ last month.

anyway, here’s the PV, uploaded once again by fred =3

and for the single download, you can visit fred’s LiveJournal for the download link in Mediafire upload at Mediafire since i’m too lazy to upload it myself 😛 added by the fact that my connection is often suddenly disconnected lately… curse the ISP !!!

[Single] MELL – RIDEBACK (out on March 4, 2009)

Opening theme for anime ‘RideBack’


Track List:


2.RIDEBACK-Japanese ver.-

3.RIDEBACK-Re-mix ver.-(Ken Morioka Re-mix ver.)


okay…. first, i want to talk about the PV. there are two MELLs there. the one with white victorian lolita outfits, and the one with black fur-y coat rocker style. white MELL looks really elegant and beautiful x3 x3 while black MELL is kinda… cool and sexy… 😀 but i like white MELL more 😛

and then… the song. i don’t know how it sounded like a powered-up version of KOTOKO’s ‘BLAZE’ on some parts and MELL’s ‘Virgin’s High!’. the 1st chorus-intro-2nd verse transition is rather weird. not so connected. and we also have MELL’s Engrishness. okay. i really can’t understand what she’s singing if i haven’t seen the lyrics. MELL really has to improve her English accent. her Engrishness might be her selling point *maybe, i said*, but… oh please MELL-san, make us at least able to understand what you’re singing -_-;

so, let’s move on to the Japanese version. well, it only differs on the lyrics of course. she also put some different english lyrics in the Japanese version. but… he ?!?!?! i still love the Engrish version more o_O;; guess that’s what you call with ‘ohh… I’ve been too used to it’ syndrome 😛

now, Ken Morioka’s remix version. it’s shorter, only 3:48 while the original is 4:42.he makes the song less trance-ier than the original version and he emphasized the drums. he also cut the 1st chorus out from the song, the reason why the song is shorter than the original. but he doesn’t lose the essence of the song, making it a good remix =3

but, anyway, RIDEBACK is really good change for MELL. it’s not a song with dark aura like what MELL usually do. it really fits the image of the anime ‘RideBack’ and i’d even thought the PV would have involved somekind of moto-racing scene since the song just had the racing feel in it  xD xD

i’ve loved this song since hearing the short version and love it even more now =3 well, the weird transition did ruin the song a bit, but it’s fine since it’s just that one part.

end of words… RIDEBACK is great !!!!!!!! xD xD xD plus MELL is so beautiful in both PV and the booklet x3

    I also love the PV haha! Overall this single for me is much greater than KILL. Ya know, I’m hunching this’ll sell much greater than KILL since it leaked very early. =3 KILL wasn’t able to do this and the worse, I only got my PV rip out of the uploader in nicovideo and in the barks. And it’s all not that high-quality at all… o__o;

    I was really shocked when last night (it was still Saturday night here) when I logged in at IMS that RIDEBACK is already out!!! o.O’ Then I hurriedly downloaded it although it took me 3hrs to download all of the single. Don’t ask why because I presume you already know the reason. xP

    But it was worth the wait after all. =D

    wow fred, i at least got a better quality of ‘KILL’ PV, although it’s in mp4, too *torrent work, as usual :P*
    i’ll upload it when my connection is better =3

    now i need my good quality version for ‘RIDEBACK’ xD xD
    gotta look for it x3

    Well actually it wasn’t much of a deal for me since I didn’t like KILL that much. Hehehe but I want an HQ PV of RIDEBACK!! That would be <3~

    Oh btw, thanks for making the first comment in the RIDEBACK -Japanese ver.- fandom I made haha. ^^;;
