Today I got my package from yesasia! Finally!!! i was so excited to finally get some CDs after so long and I’m planning to do some purchase reviews on top of the gaming babbles I do on here. First up is Dancing Dolls’ third single, ‘DD Jump’. Now, I’ve been in love with the song since I managed to see a PV through tumblr considering that the official channel is Japan locked. Grr!!! I got the regular edition since I tend to have no place to play region 2 DVDs(though logic on this isn’t sound…I got FLOWER’s CD/DVD edition of their 5th single…then again, it was for the bonus first press track…). I like the cover and the picture they used of the girls. The obi clearly mentions ‘Love Machine’ which is sampled heavily in the song(which I love! <3) and something about jumping. My Japanese is pretty rusty, bear with me. The back cover of the lyrics leaflet is the same as the back cover of the single, which is okay but I honestly would’ve preferred another picture of the girls since the only one we’re essentially treated to is the cover. What’s going on behind the CD though? It’s great. DISCO! Total throwback to the track. This totally put a smile on my face when I noticed it. While I would’ve preferred again another picture of the girls, this was definitely a nice surprise.
Onto the last bit on the single, Since it was fairly basic packaging, there isn’t much to talk about. I was surprised when I pulled out the lyrics leaflet that a photo popped out! I didn’t turn it over until after I looked over the lyrics. I got a signed Hono picture!!! *squee* As I’m still learning the girls’ names, I have yet to form a full bias over anyone but Hono is certainly a contender aside from Mii.
The songs in the single itself are great. The dance music these girls put out is consistent and certainly enjoyable. I didn’t particularly like ‘Sunshine’ but it wasn’t a bad track. I’m just more used to hearing these girls having excitable dance songs. ‘DD Jump’ being particular in this case. I can’t wait to blast this on my drives to work.
Next up from what I bought yet? I don’t know…I’ll probably end up talking about Batman Arkham City…haven’t mentioned anything about that yet and I promised I would…tomorrow maybe?
