The title of Akina’s new album has been revealed to be … wait for this … 「Diva」. I wonder how she came to this, and hopefully, it is a reflection of the style of the album and the cover art. Hope it is going to be fierce!!
As for the track list of Folk Akina Complete Vol. 2, here they are as follows:
10.I LOVE YOU (オフコース?)
I am really excited that she is covering なごり雪, ベルベット・イースター (a Yuming song) and 悪女 (Miyuki finally!!!!!!). Akina Fun Site seems to think that the last track is an Off Course song, but I am wondering if it is a 尾崎豊 cover, which has been covered to death, but could be a talking point for the album.
The songs are more famous this time. At first glance, the only two songs I had never heard of are the first and third track. The rest are rather pleasant pieces with tracks 8 and 9 being covered so frequently as well, but I am not too interested. I hope that the arrangement is more “spectacular” than the simple guitar accompaniment in Collection 1, as much I did enjoy the album.
What do you think?
