Strawberry Flower: Pikmin 2 “Ai No Uta” Review

Pikmin, a quite fun game so I’m told (and I’ve just ordered it for the Wii), has a cult following here in the UK.The 5 track single is from “Pikmin 2: Song of Seed”, the sequel which  not long was also rereleased on Wii.

A band called Strawberry Flower put together two songs. “Ai No Uta” (with 4 versions no less!) and “Namida Ga Afureta”. Strawberry Flower’s vocals are some of the cutest and child-like I’ve heard. Put together with the warmth of the xylophone, acoustic guitar, fairytale story-esque wind instrumentation and playful percussion – it makes for a beautifully childish care-free fun CD. The remixes are all suitable different but still follow the same trail of thought and production – fun folksy end of day barn dance gone cutesy. In fact the remixes sound like different songs in their own right.

The CD is sold at a CD single price which is great because the 5 songs only clock in at 13 and a half minutes but what you are given are golden strands of laid back cute pleasure. Highly recommended for people who enjoy happy village themes!

  1. Hey there! I know this is sort of off-topic however I had to ask.
    Does running a well-established blog like yours take a lot of work?

    I’m completely new to operating a blog however I do write in my diary everyday.

    I’d like to start a blog so I will be able to share my
    experience and views online. Please let me know if you have any ideas or tips for new aspiring bloggers.
    Thankyou!
