Ongaku Gatas - Come Together (unfortunately)
The Ongaku Gatas have shown us their 3rd single entitled 'Come together' ... which I find a total sexual reference, but that's probably just me.
A great PV, catchy song and great dance moves ... this latest release lacks all three ... and when I say lacks I actually mean they are non existent.
Although I tend to love most h!p videos by default, this is an exception to the rule.
First lets understand why I think this ...
The PV sucks.
When the Ongaku Gatas released 'Yattaroze!' I didnt think it would be possible to create a video with a lower budget, but 'come together' totally blows that idea, this video consists of two locations, a clear screen background with studio lights and some little room with a table filled with random junk.
While in this room the camera turns on some type of grainy effect which try's to create some kind of informal unrehearsed situation with the girls, this could work if the girls where actually doing anything of interest ... all they seem to do is sit about playing board games and acting mildly goofy, all of these antics seems painfully forced and unnatural, if this part of the video was trying to show the rapport the girls have with each other then it fails spectacularly.
The dance moves to this video are tired and uninspiring, there's not a single movement or gesture that grabs my attention, and I have looked and there's nothing here that we haven't seen 100 times before.
The outfits are ok, the orange jackets are kinda slick but thats about it.
And most importantly the song itself is just weak and forgetful ... seriously ... I watched the video about 10 minutes ago and I cant even remember a single lyric or rhythm, the song just dribbles along without any hooks or stand out moments, I cant even recall any decent solo lines, I really hope their second album steps up the quality because this is a bland affair.
Considering the group has heaver hitters like Charmy and Yossie you would think that this would be made of win ... I can imagine what Yossie must be thinking ...
Yossie: I left Morning Musume for this??? :facepalm:
So yeah I think I've summed up my feelings for this, I really dont like to be too negative but I'm just calling it as I see it, am I being too harsh or do you guys and girls think its also garbage?
I sometimes think Tsunku saves all the good ideas for Berryz Kobo and C-ute.
