Review

Berryz Koubou’s 27th single is another up tempo song similar to their previous 2011 singles Heroine ni Narou ka and Ai no Dangan.

While not as Euro pop and clubbed up as Heroine ni Narou ka or as energetic as Ai no Dangan, Aa Yo ga Akeru does contain some House styled piano chords that start off and continue throughout the song. That’s not to say it isn’t any less dance-able than what they’ve already released this year, but it is slightly more laid back in comparison.

I mean you can still use the song for some Stepmania, In The Groove or DDR type action and still be challenged.

The b-side Otona ni wa Takunai Hayaku Otona ni Naritai (man that ‘s a long title) is more typical of what one would probably expect of Berryz Koubou. It does have its own charms with aggressive guitars and plenty of keyboard and synth stabs liberally placed throughout the entire song. It’s a nice compliment to the a-side instead of being filler material.

Some may not like Berryz Kobou’s move into slightly more mature material but they can’t be doing cuetesy songs forever. At least they’re making the move interesting unlike say… Morning Musume.
