Close your eyes. Let the rhythm take you there. What do you see?
Dramatic beauty. When I close my eyes and listen to Misia’s Soul Quest I see the beauty in melancholy. But that’s only one of the many places her music can take you. There are places filled with smiles when you listen to Manatsu no Chameleon. There’s inspirational places in songs like Maware Maware. Then there are beautifully tragic places in songs such as Kimi ni wa uso wo tsukenai. This is the quest for one’s soul made into an album.
I perceive Misia as one of those worldly artists that only plays music that comes from somewhere deep in a world of abstract shapes. Her music is inspired and varied. This album takes you from almost mainstream-like pop songs all the way to festivals of World Championship proportions. Her beautiful, melodious voice is just made for that kind of feeling.
I highly recommend this album.
