It's really hard to explain how much this song affects me.
When I first heard it, it was from a random radio show on which Kame and Junno were promoting their 5th album. I was skimming through the program, since I don't even understand Japanese, just wanted to hear Kame and Junno talk. And I heard this song playing the background. I thought, it's a new KAT-TUN song!
and It sounds nice
excitedly. Of course, I didn't know the title or anything. When the CD came out, I heard the full song for the first time. Faraway really caught my interest, from the first few beats until the very end. At first, I thought it was a nice melody, but assumed since it's just another one of those ballads that I would get bored of soon. (I do like songs like Neiro, and Smile, but uhhh dunno I don't really listen to those songs on repeat) The first few times I played it, I couldn't even remember the melody afterward. I just knew that it was good and I liked it whenever it was playing.( it made really me DDD: a lot )
More than anything, I think this latest album is something for which I really enjoy listening to the tracks in order, more so than for their other albums. To me, there's such a variety of feelings filled in this album, and each song is KAT-TUN in its own way. I think someone said this and I agree: that this "No More Pain" is almost like a journey (maybe KT are seeking catharsis), from the dramatic opening song "N.M.P." which is almost like a desperate cry for salvation until the very end, with "HELLO" it's like they're starting afresh again.
