Checkpoint Krystal: Summer Suspicion by S. Kiyotaka & Omega Tribe, Kiyotaka Sugiyama

Krystal- Okay this sounds more like city pop, so finally off to a better start. This is a pretty nice singing voice. Like it’s very smooth and relaxing to listen to. I wasn’t sure I’d like it at first, but I’m really getting into it. It has all the elements I’d want. Like it’s cute and fun and lively in all the right ways. And I am excited because I expected city pop to be all women since it was dominated by women predominantly, so I am pleasantly surprised!

Checkpoint Krystal: CAT’S EYE - (NEW TAKE) by Anri

Krystal- I am so excited to give Cat’s Eye a second go because doing that for Midnight Pretenders netted me a surprising like of the song. Anri has such a smooth, beautiful voice, and this instrumental is fun and cute and really gives the whole era a shine. I definitely should’ve listened to the New Take with a fresh ear because I was missing out, like… Her voice is so so beautiful. It is above and beyond every single other song here. Take my #1 for Checkpoint Krystal! https://i.imgur.com/AtuM2RJ.gif

Checkpoint Krystal: Sweet Love by Junko Ohashi & DJ HASEBE

Krystal- This is a remix from 2020. It is not fitting my theme whatsoever. And due to it being a remix from 2020, it takes out all the good parts to city pop music. 😶 It said on YouTube it is from 2020, so I think a little more research could’ve helped you here.

Checkpoint Krystal: Eat You Up by Yoko Ogniome

Krystal- Wait this instrumental is starting out STRONG like this is just really, really fun. Her voice is super cute and light, which I like quite a bit. Is this a cover of some song I wonder? Oh it is. That makes a lot of sense. I really just enjoy her voice and this really upbeat energy overall. I kinda wish I could just give you all #1 for this round and then rank all the other ones into the pits because this is clearly where all your best energy went into.

Checkpoint Krystal: Midnight Pretenders by Tomoko Aran

Krystal- Okay yeah I like really fuck with Tomoko Aran, okay? Her less known hits are more my jam than Midnight Pretenders, but this song is one I cannot deny the beauty of. I mean it’s Tomoko fucking Aran. Of course her voice is wonderful. But honestly the longer I listen to this song… the more I’m starting to think maybe I was sleeping on Midnight Pretenders by itself? It’s sort of relaxing and a bit fantastic and overall cute. OH I’M TORN. YOU’RE ALL TEARING ME TO PIECES ALREADY. 😭 Take my #1 for Checkpoint Krystal!

Checkpoint Krystal: Telephone Number by Junko Ohashi

Krystal- Wait her voice is so refreshing. And I kind of love that little AWOOO she does. It’s nice and jazzy and fun. I think this is definitely a song I didn’t listen to long enough because I heard a little bit of it and didn’t listen far long enough. I think this song is just so relaxing and the emphasis on the jazz was a real nice touch in terms of instrumental, as some city pop songs show a little less of that aspect.

Checkpoint Josh: love me or leave me alone by Amelia Moore

Josh- Oh I really loved the overall feeling of this song. At 2:06 when the track goes quiet and all we get is soft vocals? Chills. I had to go back and look up who this was because I didn’t remember her OG submission and the way this is in my opinion WAY BETTER than i feel everything. You’ve delivered so many songs that have been looping in my playlists recently. I have a feeling if you lose it’ll be because of everyone else lol.

Checkpoint Josh: GAY 4 ME by G Flip ft. Lauren Sanderson

Josh- I really liked the verses in this song but I really liked the pre-chorus. I feel like the chorus itself is a bit over the top and gets too much into the only screaming sounding territory which isn’t the most appealing sound to me. Siri kind of came in at the end of the song and ate up though.
