I have another Soniko merchandise related post for you, this time Soniko sings a few songs for us. This CD is called SONICONICOROCK Tribute To VOCALOID – Initially Pressed Limited Gorgeous Edition. As the name implies Soniko is performing some popular songs of Vocaloids. Don’t misunderstand Soniko is none of these synthesizer singers, since the Sonicomi game promotion started, she has a real voice, which is given to her by Ayano Yamamoto.
To tell you the truth I mainly bought this CD, because I liked the cover and another reason was that it is a limited item with some small nice extras included, AmiAmi also added a postcard for purchasing this CD. The included extras are a metal keystrap, a telephone card (my second Soniko telephonecard, lucky!), and a small illustration booklet. You know what this means?
I don’t know many vocaloid songs, but I guess most of the songs were already sung by vocaloids, I could find a few of the songs on youtube, anyway the following titles are included.
|ROMEO & CINDERELLA
|Dear (From Sonico to You)
|ハッピーシンセサイザ (SUPERSONICO VERSION)
|ARiA (Tribute To VOCALOID”SONICONICOROCK”)
|from Y to Y
|FROM Y TO Y
|MORNING GLOW. YOUR SONG.
As I inserted the CD I was quite surprised that the songs sounded that good, she has no exceptional strong voice but I really like the tone of it and it works well with the music. Im really enjoying this CD. To give you a little impression about how Soniko sounds, I will show you a few of my favorite songs.
However here you can see the advertisement which features all the included songs in short
Dear (From Sonico to You)
HAPPY SYNTHESIZER (ハッピーシンセサイザ)
The CD has a good mix of songs, most of them have a Rock/Pop touch, befitting to the girl with the electric guitar, there are a few ballads, a few faster songs and a few dance hall songs, the less artificial voice makes the songs better in my opinion. I expected nothing but now I keep playing the songs like there is no tomorrow. The songs turned out so nice, the box is pretty and so Im glad that I ordered this Initially Pressed Limited Gorgeous Edition. I paid 2800 Yen for the limited edition which is already sold out, but the regular release for 2200 Yen is on backorder
