SMAP – Yozora no Mukou (a J!-ENT World Groove CD Single Review)
January 14, 1999 by Dennis Amith
The #1 single of 1998 is a heartfelt, slow jam from SMAP. The group’s 27th single was a pleasant surprise and definitely an awesome single worth checking out!

SMAP has had an awesome 1998 and their 27th single “Yozora no Mukou” (Beyond the Sky) has been selected the #1 song of 1998 in sales and by various music charts. I have to admit that this song is fantastic! It’s a wonderful ballad and definitely a song that showcases the vocals of Takuya Kimura.=
The slow jam is very heartfelt as we can see from the chorus:
nanika wo shinjite kore takana
yozora no mukou ni wa
ashita ga mou matteiru
Since that day,
what were we able to believe in?
Beyond the night sky,
Just an awesome song and also a cool music video! The coupling track “Ringo Juice” (Apple Juice) is a funky track that is the kind of music they have been releasing as of late. It’s an OK track. The the last two tracks feature an instrumental version of both vocal tracks.
Overall, “Yozora no Mukou” is a fantastic single from SMAP and a single that is highly, highly recommended!
