Passion | 宇多田ヒカル (2005) ★★★★☆
passion is the name of the forthcoming single from 宇多田ヒカル (utada hikaru) this song also will be used as theme song for the sequel of the famous action-rpg game called “kingdom hearts”

in this song hikki still uses multiple layers of instruments which some people might find it “not very catchy” at the very first time they hear it. well, this is no poppy song anyway. if you listen to the song closely, you will notice that a few words in the adlib are not comprehensible, they are in fact the english lyrics in reverse! how cool is that? [shy]

the pv (promotional video) begins with beautiful lines of animation element which run across the universe then transform into shape of a woman. hikki is in stunning long white dress, and there’re lots of computer-graphic sakura’s petals falling most of the time. i love the floor, is that cg too? i believe 90% of this pv is cg. -_-
