Hello, I know I said that I'll write a review about JKT48 Beginner Handshake event, unfortunately I didn't find the event as good as the previous HS event. Instead I'll write a review about my friend's band who recently released their first mini album with the title It's Harder to be Me (They release it on iTunes too) and I pre-ordered it because I promised her to buy her first musical release.
Let's start with the unboxing first shall we?
|It came with a bonus bracelet|
|The whole bracelet|
|Front cover (there's a thank you note)|
|Back cover with the tracklist|
The back cover use the same concept as the front cover with the dark blue color and the track list. There's only nine tracks, that's why I called it a mini album but it's not a problem for me since JKT usually only have six tracks for their release. Anyway, the font kinda remind me of JKT's Pajama Drive someone please tell me what's the font name!!
|Self portrait, because who wouldn't?|
As you guys should already notice this is not an album so there's not that many song in here. There are nine song in this mini album Golden Sun, Fire and Spirit, Witness Song, Dear Diary, Wiped Out, Insecure, Can't Stand, Missed, and Reborn. First of all I don't know much about music so I'm just gonna write what I like and what I don't.
The first two track, Golden Sun and Fire and Spirit, feels a bit warm and familiar to my ear. They feels kinda like mainstream pop music these day(?) so its easy for me to listen to. Reborn also my favorite because the song talk about how they here and that this is what they want. There are song that I found dragging to me too, like Dear Diary and Insecure. I don't know really why but when I listened to those song I can't help but to think "Alright, when will this song be over? like seriously..." I don't know if some people feel the same or it's just me.
One of the problem that I had with the CD is they suddenly stopped playing oftenly. However, since I've only been play it on my laptop so I don't know if it's my laptop or the CD, but I thinks it's my laptop since he's pretty old.
In summary the CD package looks simple but I think its perfect and the hardcover give me this elegant feeling. The songs are pretty good, one thing that I noticed though is the lack of love themed song in this album, which is great because 48G already supplied me with more than enough song about love. So, if you guys looking for something new to listen to why don't you try give Imaji a chance? who know, maybe you'll love it after two or three play.
