1. Wonder Fang
Watch out, Faylan is back and ready to rock! Beginning with a short chorus, Faylan’s strong vocals grab me from the outset and I’m immediately loving that fierce power and vibrato on “wonder faaaaang”. Guitar riffs and hard drums dominate the aural landscape, and Faylan tears through the vocals with her husky voice. Both the verse and chorus are fist-pumpingly thrilling and filled to the brim with energy. The song’s really rocking and catchy and I’m really loving it, so great A-side!
2. Blue Sanction
She sure likes her song names to be colourful, doesn’t she? The second track Blue Sanction is lighter than the first, but clearly still a rock song. I love that heavy guitar riff just after the first vocal part, which is repeated through the song. The verse is initially subdued with just piano and drums, but becomes more intense as guitars come in. The chorus isn’t at the same level as Wonder Fang’s but still good. It’s interesting that when she says “blue sanction”, it sounds very similar to the matching part in Wonder Fang (although the songs had different composers). Nice to see a guitar solo too, they’re rare in Faylan songs. Good B-side, but not as great as the A-side.
Wooo Faylan has had a really strong run with her last few singles (maybe discounting WHITE Justice) and Wonder Fang is a great addition. She kicks butt at rock songs, so what she should do is persuade her producers not to give her piddly anison like they do sometimes and than we’ll have Rock Queen Faylan who’s like Maon Kurosaki 2 (except I like Faylan’s vocals more than Maon’s). A great single, especially Wonder Fang which I’m liking more with each listen.
