Animefringe Reviews:
Eriko with Crunch - Luv is Magic
By Dai Kou


With 'Luv is Magic' being their fourth single / second official single, Eriko with Crunch continues to make their presence known to the music lovers of Japan. A possible arrival of Eriko's first solo album may be just shy after their third consecutive single release, hopefully due any time now. "So, how about this latest release?" you say? Let's take a look.

Track 1 - "Luv is Magic"
The title track of the single - - Upbeat, crisp and lively. Those who have been following Eriko's tracks since her departure from SPEED know that she's only released fast-tempo songs as of yet, and this seems to be one of the better so far. The lyrics of the song are good as well, celebrating "love" and it's "magic"; almost reminds me of some 70's era jig.

Track 2 - "Yuudachi" [Shower]
A relatively 'slower' track complimenting a bit with "Breakdown", EwC's third track of their first consecutive single. A good track, however like "Breakdown", possibly the least favorable of the three.

Track 3 - "Find Myself"
Definitely the best track in my eyes, "Find Myself" exhibits a mild rock and pop beat, and great lyrics. The whole concept of the song interacts very well with Eriko's voice as well as the music, creating an overall "great" track.

Track 5 - "Yuudachi" Karaoke

Track 6 - "Find Myself" Karaoke

Furthermore increasing the popularity and relevance of their group to the public, Eriko with Crunch continues to make spot appearances and performances, hoping to categorize themselves with the best of the best. As a great and loving fan, I'll continue to shed a little light on their progress - - afterall, Luv IS Magic!
