thoughts: I am so excited about this song! AKFG is one of my favorite bands and I feel always might be. This song will be featured on the bands 13th single which comes out December 2nd, 2009 (my birthday! Meant to be? :D) The song starts off with a mid-tempo drum beat, deep set bass, and melancholic guitar which is carried throughout the song. What really stood out to me were the vocals at the beginning of the song, deep and sober, and almost rap-like. It reminds me a lot of Orange Range, but it still has that distinctive AKFG flavor to it. It's been on repeat since yesterday. Highly Recommended~!!!

thoughts: I love love love this single! Every single song is amazing. Hands down, Goofy consists of the most unique blend of voices I have ever heard in a group; the almost harsh, rough voice of one of the males, the deep, melodic voice of the female, and the soft, clear, easy voice of the other male. The melody of the songs and the vocals of the singers work together perfectly to convey the emotions of each song. This is just a beautiful single, so give it a try. RECOMENDED.

thoughts: noodles sounds like a fusion of Asian Kung Fu Generation, The Pillows and Cansei De Ser Sexy. our first noodles is the first thing I have ever heard of them, although they have been around for a while. They even toured in the United States back in 2007. Definately recomended.
