Canary

CD No: Pony Canyon PCCSA-01485
Release date: 6 Dec 2000
Price: Y3000
Total length: 62:59 (13 tracks)

Her new CD is packed with a charming set of songs. As you may know she has gradually changed her style since her debut. There is no "cute" songs and her maturity can be felt throughout instead.

Two of her best anime songs are also re-recorded. "Scarlet" of Ayashi no Ceres is, with guitar and strings, mellower than and as good as the original. As for "Tenohira no Uchuu" of Key the Metal Idol, this arrangement is probably for live concerts (that is, no chorus or orchestra). It is nice but lacks the power and depth of the original, IMHO.

As with other recent CDs of hers, beautiful photographs of the insert are another charm of this CD and overall I can happily recommend this to all Junko fans ^_^
