Performed by "Miz," the Grandia III theme song single is one that I frankly do not care for. These are standard pop songs with the occasional English lyric thrown in ("when I fly in the sky!") amidst the otherwise Japanese words. Musically, we are looking at sticking to the same key and moving the bass up and down a step or two to change the root of the chord. Miz's vocal performance is pretty decent, and she can sing English words without distorting them in the least; this is an accomplishment for most J-Pop vocalists.

However, I'm still not impressed. The "Remix" of In The Sky does not vary from the original much at all -- I was hoping for some more variation. The B-Side to the single, "What Difference," is just plain boring. The clever pun I came up with to describe the song is "what difference does it make whether or not this song is included?" Yeah, that's right, you think it's funny.

Unless the samples compel you to do otherwise, I'd recommend not buying this one. Just listen to your local pop/rock radio station and you'll get the same effect.
