Light vs. Dark Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
When this single came out, I loved it. I loved every aspect of it. The varying themes for each song in the booklet, the differences in music and style in the songs and even the cute 90 second video clip of "Star."

"Promise" is a beautiful power ballad that had me in tears the first time I had ever heard it. This is where you can really tell how she had started maturing in sound. She was growing comfortable with her voice and learning to control it more. The video is simple and stunning. Kuu is a bride at an empty alter in full gown, showing up and walking down the aisle, imagining her lover at the end. The song talks about the "promise" he had made to marry her, but how, with his death, left her abandoned. If the song with her passionate vocals didn't make you cry, the video will. Koda Kumi looks stunning and the flashback scenes are adorable and what give it an even more powerful message.

"Star" is a fast-paced pop song and always sounded really strange coming after that passionate ballad. It's a cute song with a fun beat and, even if you don't think you like it, I can promise that it will get stuck in your head constantly. (laughs) The PV is the "short version," which I guess they had intended to do a full version for the album, but never did. Either that or they just wanted to experiment by giving this growing artist a shot at a double A-side. (laughs)

This is definitely a 5/5 single. If you haven't been into Koda Kumi that long, then check out "Promise," at least. That song really doesn't get the attention it deserves.

Wow Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
I'm not a big fan of ballad style music, but after watching and listening to Promise, I have to say wow. The song is very pretty and Koda looks so beautiful in the video. Star is a good song too. If you're a Koda Kumi fan then you should definately get this CD!
