Mihi's "Scheerazade (Arabian Night)" is so beautifully produced, no Japanese language knowledge required to be drawn into the exotic nature of this song! I love a good intro, and this song really sets the track up right. Mihi's voice projects emotion but with a touch of mystery. All of the elements work together perfectly, and the unexpected bass line pyrotechnics in the break were dazzling! Great work to all involved! I did feel whisked away to those sultry dunes and intoxicating aromas.

The brilliant string arrangement and versatile accompaining instruments like flute and harp making this song engaging for me. Sounds really impressive and creates a great space in the backround. This extra factor brings increasing feel into the music. Mihi sings with a great unique voice making this wonderful composition complete. She has a clear vocal projection and the fantastic chorus brings additionally beauty into the song. The lyrics come from the heart and touching the soul. The latin drum beat combined with rythmical percussions, pure acoustic guitar sound and the bass-lines are brilliant in this arrangement. They all together forcing the music constantly on a higher level what sounds really symphonic. The harmonical keyboard solo in the bridge increases the music. This extra factor makes the song professional and really creative. This is definitely a very professional recording, really perfect mixed and mastered. I find it extremely good and felt compelled to listen again and again. This one must be a radio hit and it´s an original. Listen to the song and you will know why Mihi is on rank #1 here. I´m sure you want to add it, too ;-)
