[Single] Kana Nishino – I Don’t Wanna Know

~Track List~
01. I Don’t Wanna Know

~Single Review~
Kana Nishino, a new Sony artist will be releasing her debut single, “I” on February 20, 2008. However, preceding that release, Kana Nishino released “I Don’t Wanna Know,” an English download exclusive to iTunes US. The song is essentially the English version to “I.”

“I Don’t Wanna Know” is an interesting song that borders on discordant at times. The vocals and lyrics aren’t especially strong; Kana Nishino is hard to understand as her pronunciation is Engrish at best. This means that you can’t understand much other than the chorus and the bridge. And her vocals don’t exactly soar above the rest of the rock track, letting the words mix into the music too much at times. Those problems are not present in the Japanese version of the song, so it is the superior version. Still, the hook “I don’t wanna know” is catchy and memorable, and the instrumental’s rock guitar riff base is great. The track is synthetic, rock, and dark all at once. Over all, “I Don’t Wanna Know” is probably regular J-pop single filler, but displays a nice new sound from a debut artist.

    My developer is trying to convince me to move to
    .net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the
    expenses. But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using Movable-type on numerous websites for
    about a year and am concerned about switching to another platform.
    I have heard great things about blogengine.net. Is there
    a way I can import all my wordpress content into it? Any kind of help would be greatly appreciated!

    I’m impressed, I have to admit. Rarely do I encounter
    a blog that’s both educative and interesting, and without a doubt, you have hit the nail on the head.
    The problem is something not enough folks are speaking intelligently about.
    Now i’m very happy I stumbled across this in my search for something relating to this.
