Suzuki Ami – Delightful [15th Single]

Posted on: November 3, 2008

Suzuki Ami’s 15th single and debut single with avex, entitled Delightful, was released on 03.24.05.

Delightful is a great dance song that keeps the listener moving. The song starts off with an upbeat dance instrumental that immediately catches the listener’s ear and then the first verse begins. There is a dark atmosphere about the instrumentation and her vocals are a little deep here, staying with the music perfectly. Soon the instrumentation becomes a little more diverse and comes to a lighter climax on the chorus. English phrases such as “crazy my love” and “body shaking now” really make the chorus pop. Following the chorus is the pure instrumental section, which really demands attention and entrances the listener. Then we return back to the darker atmosphere of the verses.

The B-side is the sweet magical ballad, About You…The strongest part of the song is the magical atmosphere that the music exutes. On the chorus especially, her vocals show just what Ami can do and it fits very strongly with the music. About You… is a very nice compliment to Delightful to make this single enjoyable.

In order to promote the single, a PV for Delightful was made. The video is very enjoyable, featuring Ami in a red outfit and another scene in a yellow outfit as she dances with some backup dancers, dressed in all black. It looks like they are in a factory of some sort and it has that coolness that the song supports so it makes for a nice video.

Single Ranking: A

Delightful is certainly a delightful single. While the A-side has a fun dance atmosphere while channeling some dark elements, With You… features a magical sound that really resonates with the listener. It’s a great debut single on avex that shows what Ami can do.
