What an interesting song! It certainly has flavours of Ongaku, but the strings at the beginning remind me of 'Ai no Rinkaku' with KOKIA. It's been a long time since a Maaya song has required me to think while listening to it - it certainly requires effort on the first listen but I think that is a good thing!

Really interesting song! Interesting lyrics too, I wonder how they will fit the anime?

Someone at gabrielarobin.com said it was a mix of 'Ai no rinkaku', 'Ongaku' and 'Light of Love'. Add in Hemisphere and you'll have the recipe for this song - the more I hear it the more I like it.

some of the instruments kinda remind me of hemisphere
only heard it once, so still need some time for me to get blend into the song.
just close your eyes and follow your HEART --> vanished to dust T.

Ladys and gentlemen, I represent you: Maaya Sakamoto - Moa zan woars :P
Im not that deep into anime anymore. This series here doesnt't look like an animation, more like fixed images. Maybe I'm missing something.
About the song: Hmmmmmm, doesn't burn me away after 4 times listening. Not like it's a failure either. The refrain was kinda nice, but I think it's a bad sign that I want to go back to my other playlist again ><
Maybe some more concert songs for me later.

I think is a hard song to listen. After listening some times more, I started to love it.

I think that the chorus and pre-chorus are really nice. The chorus feels filled of feelings.
Maybe the first parts of the song, with that cellos (That sound great) is a little bit monotone. The melody of the voice is really simple.

I agree, I had to listen to it twice, three times before I 'got' it. But now I think it is really good, the lyrics especially seem like they are going to be pretty relevant. Great song.

It's certainly not an easy listen but I really think it is good.

It seems I made some mistakes in my transcription. I'll probably fix it later, but here's what seems to be official lyrics: http://wap.saraba1st.com/2b/read.php?ti ... 3#18377356

this song's awesome, i love it so much
it reminds me to Ongaku and Sanctuary, both gives me a feeling like i'm lost in a forest or being fallen from the top, but somehow More Than Words gives me a stronger feeling than all of those above
as expected from Kanno-san, and Maaya-san's voice so beautiful and give me goosebump as always...can't wait for the official release

I don't feel this song is one of Maaya's best, but it's still quite good. The fact that Kanno worked on it is a big plus. I've probably listened to More than Words 100 times now. After the 10th time, it starts getting a bit catchy. :D
