"Extra terrestrial Biological Entities / EGOIST" -Supercell's first album with Chelly

Chelly was chosen after the auditions held by Supercell alongside with Koeda. It's a waste that Koeda got a little less songs than Chelly, she got that strong voice and she can fluently change from her strong tone to more soft voice. She sung first Guilty Crown opening "My Dearest" which in my option is the most beautiful and awesome opening I heard for years. After that she got to sing only one single that included second Guilty Crown ending "Kokuhaku" and Black Rock Shooter TV ending "Bokura no Ashiato".

Supercell decided to focus more on Chelly. For Guilty Crown anime she sung first ending "Departures ~Anata ni Okuru Ai no Uta~", second opening "The Everlasting Guilty Crown" and insert song "Euterpe". All this songs was under fictional band name EGOIST that was performing at Guilty Crown.

"Extra terrestrial Biological Entities / EGOIST" album contains twelve tracks. All Chelly songs used in Guilty Crown except "Euterpe" was included. I must say all of them are very good, but they already had singles and I would locate all these singles higher than this newest album. After "My Dearest" I expected something more from other tracks. A song with beautiful arrangement including many instruments. Even a piano arrangement like in "Departures ~Anata ni Okuru Ai no Uta~" would be fine. Other track went by "happy guitar" theme or pure electronic sounds. Even the representing song "Extra terrestrial Biological Entities" despite its catchy tune was only an another techno-like song. The only thing that get my attention beside Guilty Crown songs and Chelly's beautiful, soft voice was one song that again represents the series- Guilty Crown Lost Christmas- an OVA promoting the game by the same title. The song name is "Planetes" and it wasn't featured in any singles. I couldn't wait until official long version of the song ever since I heard it in the OVA. It was hard to find any mp3 for this song but here we have it at last, in this album. "Planetes" begins in a sad tune but later it changes to a very emotional song. It's a good example that sometimes the author don't need many instruments to create a beautiful song. The only things we hear in the background are mostly piano tunes and satelite sounds.
