Sakurario was released on March 7, 2007 by the graceful Angela Aki. Do I like it? Yes. But do I love it. No. I feel that she needs to have some more range in her song choices. A lot of her songs sound a lot alike. The overall single isn’t the strongest, but it is still worth spending your money on. Though I may seem negative, Angela is a lot better comparitively to other female musicians in talent. The piano version of “Home” is your treat on this single!

My Subjective Score: 8.5/10

1. Sakurairo
She has a beautiful tone throughout and the chorus sounds just as pretty. There are lots of strings that make it sound very “massive” for lack of a better word. Sakurario is a typical Angela ballad song and I am not disappointed.

2. On & On
I’m not sure if I like the way her voice sounds because at points she sounds like she’s wailing. Anyway, the song is uplifting and I can easily listen to it.

3. Power of MUSIC
I think she almost sounds like Madonna a bit in the beginning! I like that she mixed in some background music other than just a piano and strings to mix it up a little. For some reason this song annoys me just a little bit. It’s decent as a whole, I guess.

Track 1: Sakurairo
Track 2: On & On
Track 3: Power of MUSIC
Track 4: Home -piano version-


She gives off a lot of emotion with her face. There are cherry blossom petals falling around Angela as she rocks out on a piano, and the video is nice on the eyes. Will we ever see her without the glasses?

    I recently bought the cd, and i must say that i was bewithched by her voice (that i already know thought….) and her songs that are just great.
    She is one of the best singer and she is absolutely cute….what else would you want.
