This song is like my “outro theme” or anthem for the end of my 2017…I made some big choices without certain safety nets in places because it was a gut/faith move I felt deep in my soul that it was the right thing to do and that I would be ok as long as I walked in faith. I heard this song a couple days after my plans set in motion and I’ve been playing it on loop ever since. It’s a powerful song, gorgeous male voices, powerful percussion and chanting war cries that dare to run towards the future I want with arms outstretched, no turning back. And I’m pumped.
薄れる – Fade: When I first heard this, I was floored. Just floored. Its tone is airy with a touch of peril and techno, followed up by the angelic female vocals. And then a driving beat to round it all out. It’s beautiful and deadly and alluring and determined all at the same time. Mid-way through it softens back out without loosing its drive and we get a soft airiness to carry us to the song’s end.
Mirai Fukuin: Wow. The reverb. The darkness. The power. This pieces emanates such power! The airy dark techno, the female vocals; they work so well to create a chilling approach of shadows. I wish this track wasn’t so short because I could write pages of fiction to it. Just wow. I really must give a round of applause to Yuki Kajiura for her talent in creating such amazing musical soundscapes!
