Review

Bakibaki is the fifth single released under the babyraids JAPAN name and their 13th single release overall. This marks a return to the higher tempo; rock infused pop music that the group has become synonymous with.

The a-side and its accompanying video look like they are a public service announcement for the proper use of your cell phone. Basically don’t abuse your phone or your screen will get all sorts of FUBAR. Visuals aside, the song is your standard babyraids JAPAN fare and they don’t really stray too far from what has worked for them in the past.

When it comes to b-sides Yokiyoki follows the same pattern as Bakibaki. However, it has a much better build up to the full song and adds a small bit of ska flavor in the arrangement to keep things interesting. 2years is probably the most pop oriented song on this single. It also happens to be the most generic sounding one of the 3 songs offered as it follows the babyraids JAPAN template with little deviation to speak of.

Overall this single is not going to be anything too out of the ordinary for fans of babyraids JAPAN. The only real decision you have to make if you are in that camp is picking what version(s) to buy to feed your need. If you are a casual listener of this group then the first two songs will be the ones that you should go to as they will provide you with the best high if you are looking for a quick babyraids JAPAN hit.
