8 Uppers

The date was November 3rd, Wednesday not 3 hours before midnight and I went screaming

“OMG Kanjani 8 has released their 4th album last October 20!”

Me: Atin! Kanjani 8 dah released album baru!
Atin: Yeke? Ko gi la download. Nanti bleh amek dari ko.
Me: Ok

Me in front of lappy…
15 minutes…
20 minutes…
30 minutes…
Went into Atin’s room

Me: Atin… Tak tau nak download kat mane (dengan muka se’cute’ abes)
Atin: Ape? Kalau aku cari jumpa, nak kene cubit Wanie ni.
Me: Hehehe…
(After some time)
Atin: Ni ade banyak je link nak download.
Me: Eh yeke? Nape kite cari tak jumpe pn (muka yang sgt innocent)
Atin: Yela2x. Meh sini aku download kan.
Me: Yay!

Yep it’s their 4th album. It has been a year and 7 months since they came out with the 3rd album, PUZZLE and it has been since then that I was addicted to the song Half Down by Nishikido Ryo.

This new album features a total of 12 tracks plus 7 tracks of ach member’s solo song.

My favourite track would be ‘Negai’ (wish). Everytime Kanjani 8 lauched their latest album, members I anticipate the most to listen to their solo to are Nishikido Ryo and Yasuda Shota; they both love to write their own lyrics and compose their own music. This time Ryo’s solo is the song called ‘Monologue’, lyrics are as deep and beautiful as usual. Listening to ‘Monologue’ and detailing the lyrics, it renders an atmosphere overwhelmed by dilemma. In the MV, Ryo appeared as a mystifying man who’s battling with himself inside. As for the solo of Yasuda Shota, it’s called ‘TOPOP’. Energetic and catchy enough but I prefer his previous solos like ‘Watashi Kagami’ from Zukkoke Daisassou (the 2nd album) and ‘Airairo’ from PUZZLE (the 3rd album). Other sweet-to-listen-to tracks are ‘Kitto shiawase ga kimi wo matteru’ (Happiness is waiting for you) by Ohkura Tadayoshi and surprisingly ‘Dear’ by Murakami Shingo.

Kanjani 8 4th album, 8 Uppers

Ps: Perhaps lucky to have housemates who don’t mind ‘fangirling’ along with me on Kanjani 8 (credits to Atin and Hawa =P)
Pss: Apart from his music, I’m not that all obsess with Ryo honestly (or else Atin’s gonna kill me) lol.
