April 18 is Jessica's birthday, and instead of receiving gifts she sent one to the fans -- the single "It's Spring!"
Right off the bat, I'll admit that I'm not the biggest fan of the beginning. It's got an uninspiring retro lounge vibe running through the piano melody that more serves to annoy me than anything. Although I like the part where it slows down and you can hear someone switch it on again.
Where it picks up is about the 1:14 mark, where the tempo shoots up and the overdubs give Jessica's angelic voice a boost. That's when it shifts and becomes sweet and almost innocent. The feeling is now more of walking under cherry blossoms and admiring the blooms of spring. This is what I was hoping for, and the net effect is so much better than just another pop song. The weather's warming up, and the song is now warm, too.
