Okay, the scenery’s nice enough, and MiChi herself looks amazing, but… What is with that navy blue veil and the monster fur she’s wearing? Had they maybe done her outfit a little better, this would be a perfect cover, but that kind of just kills the shot entirely. It’s all a bit too uniform in colour for me, too, but I could’ve gotten past that had it not been for the damn DRESS.
Now, the intro for Find your Way got me excited. It’s the guitar and consistent synth structure she’s used before, but unfortunately it just leads into a rather flimsy little track with some sweeping strings placed over it. Then the verses come in and I just instantly start comparing the song to ONE. Honestly, were two of these songs required in one era, let alone directly after each other? I’m not a fan of this song at all.
Find your Way, however, wasn’t done by Tomokazu Matsuzawa, her usual partner. Thankfully, Perfect World was. However, it’s really just an ambient dance track that never really goes anywhere and only has MiChi singing in the choruses, buried deep beneath the ambiance and beats. The post-chorus guitar was a nice touch, but again, another miss with this song.
Covers are a common part of MiChi’s single, and this one is no exception. However, she chose to do Bruno Mars’ Just The Way You Are. I hate this song. To death. MiChi’s is a faithful cover, so I’m already instantly not looking forward to it. And she doesn’t surprise me at all, because her voice was not made for this song, and hearing her sing from a male perspective is just a bit weird here for some reason. So, not here for this either.
Now, I hate having my first MiChi review being a negative one, but this single is just… Awful. It really made me wish she would release an album and end this overly long era, but ON THE DAY IT CAME OUT she announced another single. So I’m not sure what the hell she’s doing, but if she doesn’t pick up soon, this album is in extreme danger of ending up terrible.
