- Never Say Never
An energetic song! It reminds me a bit of his song Limousine
on 207. Cool melody, nice text, I like that "ass-kicking" sound.
Hm. The song is good but now that good. Don't know how to describe it. It's a song I can listen to and don't skip...
- Maybe One Day
And again we get a "recycled A-Beat C song". I know, some of you are happy that avex releases older songs that haven't been released already. I don't have a problem when avex does this. But please not on SEBs. I'm no fan of this "older Eurobeat sound". There are good songs in older SEBs/Eurobeat albums, please don't get me wrong, but like the A-Beat C songs on 222, 223 and 224 I'm disappointed. But I have to say, of all the A-Beat C songs this year, this was the best one.
04 Dave & Futura
- Magic Sunday
The song isn't bad but in my point of view Dave and Futura should sing alone, no more duets please. The melody is nice but I think the song would sound better if Dave would sing it alone...
05 Tipsy & Tipsy
- Baby Tonight
Yes, finally a new 3B song! I've missed the sound of Boom Boom Beat. Almost every 3B/Asia song ever was produced hooked me. And so this one, too. Can't complain, everything's nice.
06 Dream Fighters
- I Just Wanna Stay With You
Hm, a generic Dima Music song. It's nothing special, totally sounds like his songs of earlier this year... However, who says that this sound is bad? Me not. I like the melody, Dima's voice fits very well. Nice work.
- Fairy Tale
And here we have this SEB's aishu track. What should I say? It feels like a continuation of Reborn My Fire
on 222. I don't have much to say about this song, it's okay, nothing bad.
08 Franz Tornado
- Kool Kitten
FRANZ TORNADO. A song about Eurobeat and its silly lyrics? I've said everything. Love it.
- You Got Me Boom! Boom!
*Ironic voice* "Oh, yes, a new Tora song... I'm so excited...
However, with a Boom!
in its title the song just can't be bad. Yep. Even if I had to listen to the song a few times, I can enjoy it now. My favorite part is that "wahwah part". It's nice to see how the producer experiments with the music.
10 Paul Harris
- Don't Forget
Awww yeah. A new Paul Harris song. I really liked Dreamers
on 224 and only one SEB later he's there again. The song has a bit of melancholic feel, good melody, brillant voice. (Noooo, I'm noo Paul Harris fanboy. *again ironic voice*)
- Moonlight Hero
Ultraviolet, I wanna see/hear more of you! Your voice is so beautiful! This song is so... I fell in love with it, played it like... 1000 times? Perfect one. HEEEEEEeeeeeEEERO!
12 Ciao Ciao
- Give Me Your Heaven
"Yes, a new Ciao Ciao song!"
, I thought. I'm a big fan of her songs Bang Bang Crashing Of The Boom Boom
on 186 and Together
on 214. Her song on 218 (I don't even remeber the name...) was no good one... So I hoped that she'll make a better song than the last one. Hm. And yep. The song isn't nearly as good as the two songs I mentioned at the beginning, however, it's at least (way) better than her song on 218.
13 Powerful T.
- Fantasy Car
Yay, a new song by Powerful T.! On 223, we got a Magic Car
and now it transformed into a Fantasy Car? Okay. What can I say...? The song's better than Magic Car but nothing special of him. I wish he would make a song like Face The Race
on 204, my favorite Powerful T. song. Anyway, the song has a good melody, good voice and could be better. Very constructive, I know.
14 Les & Megan
- Beat Around
He he, you'll probably hate me but I didn't like Les' Tearful Eyes
due to her voice and so I'm no fan of this one too. I've listened to it only several times, now I skip it evrytime when it begins... But better than Maybe One Day
15 Go 2
- Hot Hot Racin' Car
The song sounds at some parts like a remix.
I like it, can't complain much, good work.
All in all a good album. But my favorite SEB this year still is 224.
By the way, in December we'll get The Best of SEB 2013
. But we already could vote for the best tracks. The best tracks of 221 - 225. Does that mean that SEB226 will be released next year...?
