Saying goodbye to Rev has been not a fun time for me – so having their last song be titled Never Say Goodbye is extra bittersweet for me.
That feel continues into the song, which is a mid tempo song with arranged with a lot of strings and acoustic guitar that gives it a bittersweet feel. It’s probably most reminiscent of something like Kimi ga Ite Boku ga Ita, for Rev, which makes it a pretty perfect last song for Rev. from DVL. It’s emotional and not an upbeat happy song, but it’s also not a sad ballad. It’s as positive as you can get while still being the last song from a group as it disbands.
Considering I didn’t really like Rev’s digital single Vampire nor was I particularly fond of their 2016 single (even though it was written by Maeyamada Kenichi), Never Say Goodbye is a welcome return to form for Rev, which, given the timing, is a little sad. I wish they weren’t saying goodbye.
