Mizuki Nana – Silent Bible review

Mizuki Nana - Silent Bible

Today, I finally got a notice that informed that I can set out for a very short trip to the post office to pick up my copy of Silent Bible. I like it, but it will not become my top 1 Nana’s single. Nevertheless, the cover looks absolutely amazing. I think it may be my favorite Nana CD cover so far. White gown suits Nana very, very well, and make her look as if she was an angel. In addition, the silvery flower and ribbon in Nana’s hair… It leaves me speechless. The dark background creates a lovely contrast between itself and Nana. Simply, it’s magical!

Song list:

1. Silent Bible
2. Polaris
3. UNCHAIN∞WORLD
4. undercover

Silent Bible, the main song of this single and also the song with fastest tempo I think. The refrain of Silent Bible has a fast, rhythmical beat that is very catchy. It’s undoubtedly the best part of the song. There’s also quite a lot of my favorite Nana’s long vibratos in this song.

Some aspects of the melody of Polaris seems to have something in common with some hip-hop songs. But it may be just my imagination. Overall, it’s a nice relaxing song.

UNCHAIN WORLD is well-paced and the music is rather chaotic. Amidst all the disorder emerges Nana’s high-pitched voice and there are a few nice passages where the music calms down and Nana demonstrates the ethereal magic of her singing voice.

The last song “undercover” hasn’t made any strong impression on me. I expected the last song to be very different from others. For example a cheerful song like DISCOTHEQUE or RUSH‐!. “undercover” may be a nice, average song, but after the three previous songs on this single, I felt as if this one brought nothing new to amaze me with.
