If someone can edit the title and switch the two songs around

 

It's Jinsei Blues / Seishun Night.....no B-side ether

Okubo Kaoru has done some great work for H!P, so I'm cautiously optimistic.

I'm pretty lukewarm with this whole single, but overall I like Jinsei Blues much better than Seishun Night and I'm glad it's getting top billing over Seishun.

 

But honestly, I just want Morning Musume to get some quality music videos. The rest of the H!P groups have gotten at least one amazing music video this year. Morning Musume deserve the same treatment. Down with the glorified dance shots and close ups! Give me something amazing UF!

Seishun Night sounds like something oldschool Musume would've put on an album (1st-3rd album - except for the "ENJOY YEAH YEAH YEAH" parts. Those are annoying.).

Jinsei Blues sounds interesting, honestly. I kind of love and hate it at the same time. It reminds me a lot of German Schlager (as IchVermisseDenSommer at H!O has mentioned already) - something that could easily be played at every over-30 party in every village and bring easily everybody to the dance floor. Especially the chorus. I guess that's why I love-hate it.

 

When it comes to MVs I'm pretty sure Jinsei Blues will get the Jiyuu na Kuni Dakara treatment (let's hope they won't use parchment paper again). Not sure about Seishun Night, it could be more funky like Furari Ginza or just lazy like A Gonna.

A lot of MM musical tropes in Seishun Night, and it bores me. Jinsei Blues is a lot more interesting, and the chorus is nice and catchy. It's not at all what I was expecting, which was one of those cringey blues songs H!P trots out every few years or so, so this is a pleasant surprise.

Yeah I like Jinsei Blues better too.  Seishun Night sounds like a good old fashioned H!P throwback but doesn't stick out to me.  I dunno, I could change my mind, but that doesn't seem to happen as much in a post-Tsunku world.

When I heard the title Jinsei Blues, I automatically thought of Kobushi Factory’s song and instantly didn't want Morning Musume to have a song like that. Because it would have been super cringey.

I know they changed the dance for Seishun Night but it was so forgettable for me I forgot to see what it was like. The dance usually gives you an indicator on how they are going to move forward with the music video.

Neither of these songs has me very excited but I'm in camp Seishun Night.  H!P has a lot of songs like it already but I feel like it's been awhile since Momusu have had one, so I'll take it.  They also have a lot of songs like Jinsei Blues, but that's a sound I associate with an era of the group I really didn't enjoy at all so...

 

Overall, this is just another paint-by-the-numbers single from them.  They're further cementing this group as the most boring of their roster.

Lim A is pretty good, Reg A is alright, the B's are meh, and the Special Edition is dumpster juice.

I'm laughing so hard at the special edition it's not even funny.  I'm digging the Jinsei Blues outfits though.

Pretty usual H!P covers for now. Never been less excited for a MM'19 release in a while.

My faith in this single keeps falling lower and lower. (When it comes to Hello!Project, If you set your expectations low, it's easier to get surprised.)

Just please, give them a good MV. Just one. That's all I'm asking for. 

Jinsei's outfits are giving me 1,2,3 Breaking Out vibes. Anyone else getting that?

Erina is the only one that looks “sexy” for Jinsei Blues and everyone else looks like they’re going camping.

Morning Musume finally embracing their campy image. But with the wrong kind of campy.  :girlie:

Seishun Night PV is out!

 

I actually really like it, it kinda reminds me of Brainstorming's PV with all the lights and everything.

I really want to like this one, especially because I genuinely love classic MM funk, but I’m not sold on this :(

The “rap” bits seemed so out of place and kind of lyrically lazy (by contrast I feel like Jealousy Jealousy combined these elements much much better), and the intro bit being used as a bridge between those parts imo just doesn’t flow... the intro is a bop but otherwise it just feels all over the place to me.

Also like... what happened with the fit of these outfits lol. Like I can’t even say this is an issue with H!P costume designers not knowing how to tailor to larger figures, Kobushi has some curvaceous members also and all of their outfits were well-fitted and flattering in their most recent PV.

i’m so confused... like all of the other groups have had such good releases this year... who is sabotaging these girls and why?????? lol

I really dislike the intro to Jinsei Blues.

(Here's a longer radio preview btw: https://www.youtube....?v=1LSw3frdZhI)

 

With Seishun Night I think it was a missed opportunity. The VR parts are fun, I like that the newest three (Kaede, Yokoyan, Chisaki) got a nice focus before the chorus - but then they go straight back to the usual formula.

Also, the rap is probably the most annoying I've ever heard of Morning Musume. "Say yeah yeah yeah - yeah yeah yeah!". Oh wow. Also, those high bridges are not pleasant to the ears. Even if they seem to hit them live.

I sort of enjoyed the song. It's probably the best morning musume release in years, but at the same time it is missing something. None of the girls really have the most distinctive of voices and a song like this needs it. And as much as I did complain about Riho back in the day, she really did bring something to the group that they haven't been able to replicate since. The instrumental is good though but I do like disco sounding tracks.

After all the other groups got well, put together music videos for their A-sides, it was only a matter of time before Morning Musume did.

And so far, Jinsei Blues is shaping up to have the same.

 

Short Preview from Hello!Station.
 

I wasn't expecting the theme considering what they are using for the covers of the single, so I'm really surprised. I love when I'm surprised. :D
I'm just going to guess that it plays into the second part of the video. It's rare that I can't wait for a music video to be released so I can see the whole thing.

I do hope there still is a dance shot included in it though.

Alright, one thing first, I like that they're finally doing something different for Morning Musume and I like that it's not a damn dance shot. Acting? Great! It really fits the theme of the song I guess.

 

That being said.

What the hell lol.

I shouldn't be disappointed because it's actually nice camera work and the girls look good, but I just can't get over the video. This is nothing against the jobs depicted - I myself have worked like that. But it just doesn't fit the cool image of Morning Musume. In fact, considering they always dress the girls in OL clothes some frustrating office scenes (a la Aggretsuko) would've fit much better.

 

Also, the fact that half of the group simply doesn't exist in the first half of the video is something. lol

 

I know I shouldn't be complaining but I really don't like it.

I was actually surprised that I liked the preview as well. This is shaping up to be the first Morning Musume single that I've actually liked in 5 years. I like that they're finally giving them something different. Although there's too many members in the group at this time. Maybe the other half will appear later in the MV, but it still feels like too many, especially since 15th gen is rumored to be coming soon.

excited for this video!! I’m assuming the latter half is going to be a dance with the outfits from the album covers, so I’m interested to see how they tie this together.

I'd like them to pull an Angerme and this is just part of the music video and you need to get the one on the single for the full experience. H!P has only done that a couple of times.
