Album Review

Finding itself in the gray areas between a proper single and a longer mini-album (as is becoming the course for many popular artists in Japan), Dreams Come True's Sono Saki He marked 20 years as a successful artists' "single" of sorts. The title track features the duo along with the band Fuzzy Control (though they're quickly outshone by the dual vocals of Miwa Yoshida and Masato Nakamura) in a straightforward ballad form for a nice, if forgettable, call and response for the TV drama Kyumeibyotto 24. For the second and only other "song", a massive medley of live recordings is presented. Taken from their 20th anniversary concert tour, the piece collects a full ten songs from throughout the duo's career. Jazzy ballads like "Still" show off Yoshida's formidable vocals (as well as strong English phrasing), slightly more modern pieces à la "Eyes to Me" bridge the gaps between quiet storm and modern R&B, and "Anata ni Aitakute" shows off a mild bridge with rock influences. It's a very brief but fine retrospective in its own form, showing off what gets the crowds riled up for Dreams Come True: a love of song and a devotion to the emotive abilities therein.

They were also one of the few Japanese bands to try winning the West before the "anime boom" of the 2000s, with vocalist Yoshida Miwa even scoring an appearance on the cover of Time magazine. Dreams Come True didn't make a big name for themselves...
