At least the Acapella song. I like how they're lowkey going back to b-sides.

But yeah. I know Kobushi is capable of pulling off beautiful songs but I'd love another powerful banger from them.

I enjoyed watching them do the acapella versions in their concerts, but how often does the excitement of that transfer to a CD? Also, Hama solo-ing over backing vocals, gag, haha.

I also enjoy their acapella versions so it will be a crash test haha.

It's okay for a ballad I think.

Radio rip of Oh No Ounou.

I’d actually like the first one with the facial expressions if the gray background wasn’t so bad. Still a nice change of pace from regular smiling and deer in headlight expressions.

Hey, a decent looking set of covers! How nice. Especially the regular covers, those ones look really good imo.

Short version of "Haru Urara"

 

It's that mid-tempo pop that aine hates  :silly: , but I'm really digging this. It's a pretty mature sound, and they're pulling it off. The chorus is almost mainstream-pop, and there are honest-to-god harmonies being sung. If you've seen any footage from this year's HinaFest, you already know that KF are harmonizing live. The set I saw was from the MM Premium, and while the harmonies were rough, I love that they're doing it. They will get better the more they do it. If this is the beginning of UF turning them into C-ute v2.0, I approve.

Ooh I really like it! It sounds more like a regular pop song than an idol song, and I love that direction for Kobushi (especially since Tsubaki is so idolly). I definitely see the C-ute 2.0 too JPope!

 

This would actually be a really good song for a solo artist as well.

It's such a nice song, and I appreciate how much Sakurako we got. She has a pleasant tone, but she sings like she's afraid to hear her own voice. She needs to get over that so that we could one day hopefully get less Hamachan, lol.

Everyone sounds really good on this. It's easy to forget that KF aren't kids anymore, and there's no reason they shouldn't be able pull off more mature stuff now and then. "Haru Urara" is the best song KF has released since their album, but I wonder if it's the type of song that can sell in large numbers? I'm rooting for Kobushi Factory in a way that I can't remember rooting for any idol group ever, because of what they've been through. I want a huge hit for these girls, because they deserve one. As great as this song is, I don't think it's a hit.

 

Oh, and 2019 is shaping up to be the best year musically for H!P since 2016.

Oh boy they do. 

Reminds me of the times when I still downloaded music and instead of the original file I'd get some "cover" where some idiot sang over the real song.

Oh no! I have Oh no! stuck in my head after watching the full PV. https://youtu.be/Sw2lygzl0hU

 

It's quirky, and has elements of Maji Desu ka Ska! So much so that I think this would have been a perfect MV for that song. But Morning Musume doesn't get nice things like music videos. 

 

Haru Urara is an okay song, but it's probably not going to end up in my rotation anytime soon. It is however, a very pretty music video.

I feel lately with H!P singles there’s a song I LOVE and I song I don’t care for. I love Haru Urara, so I guess it’s no surprise that I didn’t care for Oh No :/

I really like the chorus and the beginning of the bridge a lot, but I wish they would have gone all-in on the funk/R&B for the arrangement, as the rock sounds kind of forced and cheesy to me. The good parts of this sound like classic J=J, which is probably why I like them so much. It's pretty good overall, but certain parts don't do it for me.

 

"Haru Urara", otoh, is basically perfect to my ears.
