As a first-time listener to Humming Urban Stereo’s music, it is very different but good. The songs are not overwhelmingly similar, but they don’t differ too much either. Each and every song brings a different taste of jazz, electronica and pop that livens up the music. When listening to the songs, one feels like he is in a night club, dancing to the smooth rhythms of the songs. Nevertheless, the songs make a person want to just stand up and dance, even if it looks lame doing so. The songs are not too fast, too slow, too beaty, or too dull. Different taste of music to my ears, but overall the mini album is nice. The songs are okay. The mini album will not get addictive to listen to, but that doesn’t mean it is not good. Anytime a person feels like just sitting and nodding his head, this is the music to listen to. The music is also good for working out. It gets the body pumping.
The title track, " Sophie Marceau", brings out Yozoh’s complementary vocals to the song. It is a bit different from the first few songs. The rest of the songs have less vocals but this track has Yozoh and Humming Girls’ voice talents to bring out the non-instrumental elements of the mini album. All the songs have the feel of electronica in them, which I am not so used to. Track 3, "No No No" featuring Uta, has a jazzy feel and is quite good. "Xxxx", track 4, is a more hip-hop song that sounds even better than "No No No". Overall, a nice mini album to listen to, but not as good as their previous work. I have heard better songs.
