Artist: May J.
Album: “Shiny Sky” EP
Label: AVEX Entertainment Inc.
I don’t think there has ever been a May J. release that I didn’t like. I’ve liked every single one I’ve heard. The thing is that when you like an album or EP, you love it so much that you don’t want to move towards a different album. This happened to me until I finally mustered the strength to move towards this particular release called “Shiny Sky”.
All five songs were amazing. They weren’t just listenable or above average, but they were outstanding. The songs were uplifting which makes you feel good. I feel like she puts in max effort in her songs. It’s not just the titled single that is wonderful but also the subsequent four songs after also.
I’d say the worst thing about this is that it wasn’t an LP. All the songs were amazing. I wanted more and more, but I assume all these songs would be heading to an LP later on. Even if they didn’t, this project stood well on its own, and the next one would be something I would enjoy as well.
This may possibly be the best mini album I’ve ever heard. Had it had more songs, I would have given it a perfect score. May J. is one of the most talented artists period. Her versatility is amazing, and she could lend her voice to any kind of song. Not only would she make it work, but she would also thrive.
Overall rating: 4.5/5
