"Sakura Taisen Uta no Album: Teito-hen, Paris-hen"
2002.06.19 release
AVCA-14394; 2913 yen

This CD contains new songs from primarily the Paris Hanagumi, but also 
includes a few songs from some of the members from the Teito Hanagumi.  These 
are full-length versions of the songs found on the drama CDs.  Tracks 11 to 
20 are instrumental versions of the songs -- NOT karaoke; these songs have an 
instrument playing the melody.  Sometimes, I prefer the instrumental versions 
because they sound very very nice! 

* Quick note: I got to listen to this because of a friend who let me hear the 
tracks, so I do not own the CD.  I listened to 20 tracks in total, but Neo 
Wing/CDJapan claims that there are 10 tracks.  I'm pretty sure there are 20 
tracks and that this is the right CD, because there is no other CD with the 
same track listing, but if someone else could confirm that there is 20 
tracks, it'd help me out a lot!

very nice!  


Individual track comments:

1.  Aijou Ippai
    Very cute Erica song.  Very hyper march-type piece.  She 
    sounds very happy and cute in this, as if she's running
    out breath!  Very happy-sounding.
2.  Tsukiyo no Mori he
    My favorite song.  It's a very classy-sounding jazz-ish
    upbeat song.  The combination of Takamori Yoshino's voice
    and Inoue Kikuko's voice is very very nice!  This is not
    a song you'd expect Lobelia to sing, but it turned out
    very nicely!
3.  Ciseaux no Teema
    This is based off Ciseaux's actual theme in the game.
    Very nice!  Very mysterious-like, but still cute.  I love
    the "chokin" scissor noises he makes!
4.  Koi wa Maka Fushigi
    I don't know if I like this combination of Maria's deep
    voice with Iris's childish voice.  The song is OK.  It's
    a pretty orchestrated ballad-ish opera-style song?  It's
    very short, too.  Disappointing...
5.  Shima Kaze
    This song reminds me of THE BOOM's song, "Shima Uta"!
    Well, it is sung in a similar style, at least. :)  It's
    performed very well by Tanaka Mayumi, but I really don't
    like the style of the song, so... ^_^;
6.  Kuroneko Rumba
    My second favorite.  This is a very cute rumba song!  It 
    has a very catchy beat, the lyrics are cute, and the 
    singing is cute, if you don't mind hearing "nyao" noises.
    (Shimazu Saeko's "nyao" tries to be "sexy" compared to 
    Kozakura Etsuko's and Hidaka Noriko's cute "nyaos."  ^^;)
    Just a very cute song!  Very jazzy and cute song!
7.  Boku no Paris, Watashi no Paris
    It's a very pretty jazzy ballad, and Takamori Yoshino
    sounds very nice!  However, Ecchan's voice is very...
    unfitting for the song?  ^_^;  Hanabi and Coquelicot 
    are not French, but they feel as if Paris is their original
    home, hence the song.  Still, it turned out very nice!
8.  Montparnasse no Yoru
    I'm not sure what to make of this.  It's a dramatic pop
    ballad and the combination of Shimazu Saeko and Inoue
    Kikuko sound like a nice match... but the song is too
    draggy.  Saeko sounds especially nice, though.
9.  Yozora no Hana
    Hmm... I was expecting the Sakura song to be better, 
    but oh well.  It's a very pretty sad-sounding ballad and 
    while it sounds nice, it just sounds a bit redundant 
    compared to past Sakura Taisen songs.  Sounds a lot like
    Chisa's "Cinderella" duet with Takano Urara.
10.  Sumire Cha-Cha-Cha
   This is Sumire's retirement "final" song.  A light samba
   like number.  Sounds like 50s-style, sort of?  Very cute.
   I especially like the chorus.  For some strange reason, 
   it reminds me of Matsuda Seiko... ^_^;
