Even if I don’t post enough about it here, I love drum ‘n bass and liquid funk way too much. I’m especially partial to artists I’ve been a fan of Makoto for a couple of years; Souled Out was the first album of his that I listened to, though I also enjoyed his other releases such as Believe In My Soul and Producer 08 (and who can forget the classics “Golden Girl” and “Wave”?) Ever since his collaboration album with A-Sides, I was anticipating another solo album of his.
I was only able to listen to Salvation as recently as last week, even if I knew about the album for a few months now, largely because I was too engrossed with listening to 80’s Japanese pop and older drum and bass. Makoto does not fail to deliver; there are many good songs in this album. While I still consider “Winds of Change” as the best song from “Salvation” (it’s like going on a musical journey, just listen to it), I prefer the lyrics of “Sending Back Your Love”. It’s also easier to listen to if you need a quick perk-up.
Lyrics follow under the cut, as usual!
(CAVEAT: One line at the end of the song is very unclear for me to transcribe, so I would greatly appreciate some help with it!)
