Review: The dazzling panoply that Makoto Shinkai’s latest movie, Kimi no na wa (Your Name), spares no expense in leaving friend in awe by the impeccable visuals and also invested in the characters and narrative the grows bigger through each passing minute. Every of those aforementioned elements are mesmerizing. Ns sat there spellbound by maafkan saya the movie delivered. And yet, Your Name‘s music felt like an afterthought; as soon as I acquired up to leave the theater, i couldn’t remember a single note.

No, I’m not talking about “Sparkle” or “Zenzenzense” or any of RADWIMPS’s other songs. Itu I’ll talk around later. It’s the background music the really bothers me. For a manager who’s developed a sterling reputation for tying together the music with the visuals and also story, calling Your Name utterly unmemorable is nice damning. Asking me around Voices of a remote Star, 5 cm/sec, or also Garden of Words and also I’ll readily whistle a song from any kind of of those productions v ease. Ask me to execute so v Your Name and I’ll empty out.

Based on what RADWIMPS’s Yojiro Noda delivered, his focus lay squarely top top the pop batu fare scattered throughout the movie. Your Name‘s lift music becomes a casualty, an unremarkable slush the mediocrity. The first few tracks aren’t bad. I found “Mitsuha’s Commute’s” cheery string ar striking easily like a wake-up panggilan to mine liking, appreciated “Itomori Highschool’s” unwieldy meanderings in its relenten of the day to day, and loved just how “Their accident’s” pop batu chords charged forth to command mine attention through its optimism, seizing life with gusto. The other remarkable track, “Theme of Mitsuha” (and the accompanying “Date” tracks), allows the piano untuk mengambil the reins and also weave together a quiet, nostalgic melody the grows an ext hopeful together the piece proceeds. Together, this pieces capture the film’s blossoming emotions and I don’t have a difficulty with them, by and also large.

Mitsuha’s Commute

Their accident

Theme the Mitsuha

Where Your Name battles is in the staying tracks that, yes, suffice in capturing the emotions on screen, however doing therefore in kemudian a way as to it is in nondescript. “Object of Worship” much more than fits the complaint, with a dreary melody that’s repeated to the extreme, there is no the kind of development that would certainly stir the soul. “The town that Disappeared” drops into the group of ethereal, otherworldly fare that’s pure atmosphere, through no melodic heft to do it memorable. “Kuchikamizake Trip” is juga too atmospheric because that its very own good, v the repetitive harmony sparking the stress in a way that comes across as having actually been phoned in. Ketika it echoes Taki’s desperation, it’s hanya not an interesting piece external its context.

Object of Worship

The town that Disappeared

When the bulk of the tracks falls into uninspiring aural blah, Your Name‘s soundtrack demands something to lift it the end of the self-inflicted melodic doldrums. That is savior come in the form of RADWIMPS’s songs. Indigenous the means they turned out, Yojiro Noda is far more proficient and also interested in nailing the movie’s pop-rock flavor 보다 penning immersive, memorable BGM.

For instance, “Dream Lantern’s” opener piques at her curiosity with RADWIMPS’s pleasant, longing delivery. The mood doesn’t continue to be static; the song’s emotionally reach opens up v a tide of energy that charges maju with abandon, surging its way into a cool adventure! “Zenzenzense” bawa pulang “Dream Lantern’s” lingering energy and turns it right into a bola of fiery decision that reaches beyond the boundaries of time and space. That relentless power is a pleasure to behold and I’ve no qualms through labeling this the catchiest anime tune of 2016.

Dream Lantern


As the movie winds down, “Sparkle” comes in to carry out a sharp contrast to all the power that preceded it. The song opens softly and also RADWIMPS’s shipment gives it the emotion of a bittersweet ending. So ketika the song has its heartening moments, the longing, nostalgic tones flawlessly record two souls, be separate by the rivers that time and space, bidding each various other goodbye at twilight’s confluence. Last, however not least, the album close the door out with “Nandemonaiya” which appropriately evokes a sense of finality. Kapan a hint of grief circulates its method through the lyrics, RADWIMPS ends the track on fittingly wistful notes that leaves a satisfying aftertaste.



For every the worship heaped ~ above Kimi no na wa (Your Name), nobody of that will certainly be on account of the greatly dull and forgettable BGM. Ketika the strength of the soundtrack lies in the mix the energy and also heartfelt moment in that pop-rock songs, RADWIMPS’s Yojiro Noda tidak pernah makes full use of itu motifs to tie the parcel together. Tindakan pencegahan in the vein the “Katawaredoki” (an plan of “Dream Lantern”) would have gone a long way, however alas, alack. The they didn’t make use of them is puzzling and the result is somewhat maddening, untuk membuat Your Name‘s music execution a tremendous missed opportunity.
